Southern coin silver dessert spoons, S. Baker & Son, Wilmington & NY
A very nice pair of heavy, 7 3/8" dessert spoons. They have no bowl wear and a couple of miniscule dents in one bowl. Stephen Baker was in Wilmington until around 1818 we think. We do not know when his son came into the business or actually when he was in New York. "New York State Silversmiths" has him dated there 1787/1856. All this is assuming these are the same Stephen Baker. These are marked S. Baker & Son.
