Offered is a rare and desirable 18th Century American coin silver teaspoon by noted Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania silversmith Isaac Woodcock (1764-1849), bearing one of his full name marks. The maker's mark (see pictures) is clear and legible. Isaac Woodcock worked in Christiana Hundred/Wilmington, Delaware between 1787 and 1795, and then briefly in Hagerstown, Maryland circa 1795 before joining his father Bancroft Woodcock in Wells Valley, PA, where he worked from 1795-1820. He then worked in Mt. Pleasant, PA from 1820-25, before returning to Wells Valley and working there from 1825 until his death in 1849.

Despite his very long working career, silver bearing one of Isaac Woodcock's marks is quite scarce. This teaspoon is decorated with a period script monogram of "ETC" or possibly "EH". It measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs a total of about 11 grams. Condition is fairly good overall, with modest tip wear and the bowl slightly out of round, but with no splits or repairs. Please review all of the pictures. All in all a fine and rare piece of early American coin silver!
