The maker of this 6 3/16" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., spoon was perhaps best known for his partnership with Francis W. Cooper, himself a renowned producer of mid 19th century ecclesiastical silver.

Stamped "R. Fisher Jr." for Richard, it also carries his working address, "331 Broadway, N.Y.," and is a scarce example of his individual work.

It is a "French Thread" aka "Fiddle Thread" design with a relatively short and deep shell bowl, with a broad end and a strong taper to the heel. The sidewalls are straight-sided, rather than curved.

There is an elegant, feathered script, crisp, "LCM" monogram set sideways on the handle.

It is in very fine condition, showing no wear or damage. The finish is even and warm and the bowl is without dents, nicks, burrs, or cracks.
