$38.00 Price for the pair.

These two identical teaspoons each measure a lengthy 6", are slender, have an exposed drop on the heel of the bowl, and show a midrib running down from the subtle tipt end on the backside of the handle.

They also have deeply beveled and highly angular shoulders coming off the bowls.

The pair weight approximately 1.0 T. oz. combined, and each one has the same feathered script, period "HM" monogram engraved on the front.

Each one is imprinted with a right facing "eagle" pseudo hallmark that McGrew in his comprehensive work "Manufacturers' Marks on American Coin Silver" labels as one of several "Yankee Eagles." The preponderance of the retailers he associates this figure with are from northern New England with dates in the early 1800s, which is consistent with the circa 1810 style of these.

They are in excellent condition, absent evident wear and having smooth, even finishes. The bowls remain well-shaped and free of tip wear. One of the two pieces has a crimp in the handle and a shallow horizontal dimple in the bottom of the bowl (shown in attached image).
