6 Matched Wm. White (NYC) Coin Silver Teaspoons
$ 150 set
Each of these six, matched, coin silver teaspoons measures exactly 6" long and has the same fancy, feathered script "PAC" monogram. The group together weigh 3.9 T. oz. They are stamped "Wm. W. White," who is listed as a silversmith and jeweler in New York City, with a short early period in Philadelphia. The leafy pattern has been attributed to A. and W. Wood also of New York, and if there is this connection, these would have to date c. 1850 as there was scant time overlap between the two firms. They are double die struck, meaning the pattern appears on the obverses and reverses, and very finely made. The bowls are pointed and have a plane end. The design is artful and pleasing. And the condition of all six pieces is flawless. Pattern details remains crisp and clear, and the bowls are well-shaped and free of dents or burrs.
