Measuring 5 7/8" long and weighing .7 T. oz., this teaspoon is fully marked for sterling silver, Dublin, Ireland, and 1846. The maker's mark is "P.W," designating Phillip Weekes.
It has a down turned, reverse tipt end, and a rattail drop on the reverse of the bowl. The front is monogrammed "EH" in a feathered script.
The condition is very good. The monogram shows slight softening from polishing. The overall finish is finely patinated. The bowl is well-shaped and free of tip wear, and has a not quite perfectly smooth interior.
