$95.00 Price for the group of seven.

Dating c. 1860, these seven, coin silver, "Tipt End" teaspoons fall into two groups.

Three were made by Gorham, marked lion, anchor, G, and have feathered script "SC" monograms. They measure 6" long each, while the set weighs approximately 1.8 T. oz. They carry the retail name "Rhoads," for Charles G. Rhoads of Lancaster, Pennsylvannia.

The second set is also coin silver, and comprised of four spoons, 5 7/16" long, approximately 2.3 T. oz. collectively, with feathered script "SST" monograms. They were made by Whiting, marked with that company's emblem, and retailed by Edward J. Zahm also of Lancaster. Zahm and Rhoads shared a familial link.

They are estate items, and all equally fine condition, have well-shaped bowls that are absent dings, dents, or tip wear, retain crisp engravings, and exhibit pleasing finishes.
