Offered is a good and very scarce pair of early Virginia coin silver teaspoons by noted Fredericksburg silversmith and clockmaker Henry White (flourished circa 1788-1827), circa 1810 give or take five years. These spoons each bear a good clear strike of one of Henry White's several maker's mark, in this case what looks like mark (e) in Catherine Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths" (please see all pics). Each spoon also features a lovely period engraved script monogram of WPCG - a long and uncommon set of initials that means there is a very good chance of tracking down the original set of owners of these spoons. These spoons measure between 5 7/8 inches and six inches in length, and the two teaspoons weigh about 34 grams altogether. Condition is fair overall, with some surface and tip wear and with the bowls dented and out of round, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of Southern coin silver from a sought-after maker!

Available singly for $125 each, or $210 the pair.
