Offered is a lovely set of six American coin silver teaspoons by Providence silversmith Christopher Burr (b. 1787 - d. 1884), working alone from 1818 through at least 1850 as a silversmith and jeweler. These spoons are fairly early, circa 1818-30. Each has a clear maker's mark as well as a period engraved script "MM" monogram. These spoons measure about 5 3/8 inches in length, and the set weighs about 53 grams altogether. Condition is good overall, though the spoons have minor bends and dings consistent with their age and fairly light weight - there are no splits or repairs. Please take a look at all of the pictures. All in all a lovely and early set of Providence coin silver spoons!
