SOLD

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon by New York silversmith Edward Rockwell, working in New York City circa 1803-14 on his own, and then from 1815-47 with Samuel Stone Rockwell. This spoon by style should date to the 1803-14 period by style; it is a transitional piece midway between coffin-end spoons and fiddle spoons, and is done quite nicely. This piece also has an excellent period engraved script monogram. In addition to the maker's mark of ROCKWELL in a serrated punch, there is a pseudo-hallmark that may be a sheaf of wheat or similar device. This spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition overall is fairly good, with some wear, tough tarnish, and small dings to the bowl, and some minor surface wear but no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example of a fleeting transitional form!
