J. Munro, New Brunswick, Canada "Reverse Tipt" Coin Silver Tablespoon

4479f   $85.00


click for details
As was a practice with many American silver manufacturers working in coin, even more so did Canadian silversmiths employ pseudo hallmarks imitative of English silver to identify their work.

This 8 5/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., circa 1840, coin silver table serving spoon is a case in point. It is stamped with a "crown, bust, lion" along with "IM" for John Munro, and "NB" for the province of New Brunswick, the city of St. John in this case, for the this maker.

A well-crafted piece, it... Click for details

Let's face it: after months and months of enduring the pandemic, you're probably ready for a drink and perhaps two. Might as well do it in style with this high quality antique julep cup.

Though other (albeit some slightly cheaper; some not) examples by Mr. Hudson have come on the market, none that I've seen have --at just shy of six (5.94) Troy ounces --been so heavy and well constructed. A few very minor dings but fine overall condition and monogrammed in period script as shown.... Click for details
