SOLD

Offered is an excellent and finely decorated early American coin silver spoon by noted Providence, Rhode Island silversmith Ezekiel Burr (1765-1846), working in Providence circa the mid 1780s through about 1825. This piece by style should date to about 1790, give or take five years. It is nicely engraved, and has a period set of initials. The maker's mark is nicely struck and legible. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minor wear from normal use but no dents, splits or repairs. Please review all of the pictures. All in all a great example of this form and of the work of this fine maker!
