Tablespoon by Jabez Gorham & Son;Providence,c. 1840's
Downturned handle, fiddle, rounded fins. Length 8-5/8". The monogram is a lengthwise script LAP. Mark condition of the name is excellent; mark condition of "Providence" is poor. Overall condition of the spoon is excellent except for a small tear at the base of the bowl. Notes: (1)this mark of J.GORHAM&SON, all in caps, is not illustrated in Carpenter, Belden, or Flynt & Fales (2) this is really a pair, but the second spoon has two small tears in the bowl and the bowl needs regulating. The price is for both spoons.
