Set of six teaspoons, dating from 1800-1810, by William Simes (1773-1824) of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. They are coffin ended with beautifully executed script monograms and interesting double roulette drops on the back. Each is marked with Simes' punch (mark "a" on page 382 of Marks of American Silversmiths in the Ineson-Bissell Collection by Louise Conway Belden). Length is 5 11/16 inches. Condition is very good: I would almost be tempted to say the spoons were never used...
