Born in Connecticut in 1799, Frederick Marquand learned silversmithing from his father in New York City, which was the location of his primary business activity. He is also associated with Savannah, Georgia, where he was listed in directories 1820-26 (Belden, Marks of American Silversmiths).

The identifier on this 5 7/8" long, approximately .7 T. oz., "Reverse Tipt" teaspoon with a shell back bowl, is "F. Marquand" with a three part "bust, lion, G" pseudo hallmark.

It is one of his early marks, and it along with the 1820s style of the spoon, could as readily associate it with Savannah as New York.

There is a feathered script "WHR" monogram engraved sideways on the handle front.

In very good condition, it shows little evidence of use. There is slight overall polishing wear, but there are no bends, breaks, or cracks, and the finish shows a warm patina. The bowl is well-shaped and free of tip wear, but has some slight pinprick pebbling in the base.
