Offered is a nice and scarce example of the late work of noted colonial Virginia silversmith James Geddy (1731-1807), who worked in various locations, most notably in Williamsburg, and late in life in Petersburg. This Virginia coin silver spoon should date to the 1783-1807 period during which Geddy was working in Petersburg. This piece has a period engraved block letter monogram and a museum accession number - it was deaccessioned in recent years by a Southern institution. It also has a good strike of maker's mark "f" in Cathy Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths" - the die is worn down and degraded, and it is likely this spoon was made in the 1790s or early 1800s for that reason. This spoon measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is fairly good, with some tip wear and surface wear and a few small bumps to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. Please click on the first picture to review all of the pictures. All in all a nice example of a rare early Southern coin silver mark!
