Abraham or James Fellows, Troy NY, "Tipt" Heavy Coin Silver Spoon

$42.00

Unusual by virtue of its "Fiddle Tipt" design variant, with softened, beveled edges and long, narrow, shoulders off the bowl, which itself has a singular, nearly vee shaped, raised line drop on the backside, and lastly its exceptional 1.5 T. oz. weight, resulting in a thick piece, this 7" long oval soup or dessert place spoon is stamped "Fellows" and with a "lion, bust, C" pseudo hallmark.

The mark could be for either of two brothers, Abraham or James, both born in the eighteenth century, and who worked in Troy, New York, in the first half of the nineteenth century. Sources are clear it is one of the two, or possibly both, but the specific attribution is unclear.

This has a large, feathered script "JT" monogram on the backside of the handle.

It is in very fine condition, without polishing wear, and having a warm, even, patina. The bowl is free of tip wear or dents, but shows some very shallow pinprick nicking in the base.

Please note, there is a duplicate of this spoon available, as well as three matching teaspoons.
