Boston circa 1760, with front midrib and double drop, length 7 3/4 inches, weight 1.3 Troy ounces, some tip thinning and wear to drop but very good overall condition, monogrammed "M * H" as shown in third enlargement, see fifth photo for mark.

Minott was born in Concord, MA, December 22, 1732. He married Elizabeth Davis in 1762, and spent his working career in Boston after apprenticing to William Holmes. His work is well collected. The MFA Boston holds a mourning ring, porringer, and a communion dish among other items. This spoon would appear to be the mate for a teaspoon also held by the MFA, (see Buhler, p. 681 #56).
