Coin silver "Jenny Lind" teaspoon by A. Coles
Coin silver teaspoon in the "Jenny Lind" pattern. 6 inches long. By Albert Coles of NYC. Ca. 1870-78. Marked with Coles' "Pigtail man" mark, used between 1870 and 78. P. T. Barnum introduced the American public to Jenny Lind, "the Swedish nightengale." She was a nationwide smash as a singer, despite some criticism of her talent. Thus a silver pattern named after her. Engraved "H. M. Abrahamson" in copperplate script. Bowl is perfect. Essentially like new. I also have for sale a gravy ladle in the same pattern but unmarked.
