Offered is a scarce pair of New Orleans coin silver teaspoons by noted silversmith Anthony Rasch, dating to the 1830s or 1840s and marked A.RASCH and N.ORLEANS with one of the "N"s backwards. These spoons are in the fiddle and shell pattern and are quite heavy for their size. They measure about 5 3/4 inches in length or a little under, and weigh a total of 46 grams. They each have worn but legible marks and a worn period script monogram. Condition overall is fair, with some wear and signs of use, but no splits or repairs. For whatever reason, Rasch's silver with the New Orleans city mark is quite difficult to find. All in all a nice example of Southern coin silver from a leading silversmith!
