$120.00 Price for the set of six.

One of a family of silversmiths whose history spanned over two centuries in the towns of Newbury and Newburyport, Massachusetts, William Moulton was born in 1772 and began his career in 1796, according to Flynt & Fales in their "Heritage Foundation Collection of Silver."

Flynt and Fales also note in their entry on him that he has been referred to as the "honest goldsmith" and that he "supplied well-crafted church silver and other vessels."

The style of these six, matched, 6 1/8" long, 3.5 T. oz. the group, teaspoons suggests a circa 1810 date. They have plain, rounded ends with subtle "Tipt" backsides and exposed line drops on the bowls.

Each piece is engraved "A. Newman" in script on each piece, set sideways on the handles. Newman is a surname with a deep history in the Newburyport area as well as nearby southern Maine.

They are in exceptionally fine condition, showing no polishing wear and having fine finishes. The bowls remain well-shaped and are free of tip wear, dents, or bends. The finishes have rich patinas.

Each piece is marked "W. MOULTON."
