Large at 6" long, and substantial weight at 5.7 t. oz. the lot, these six, matching, teaspoons date from the mid 19th century.

Each one is stamped "John B. Scott" for the Pittsfield, Massachusetts jeweler born in New York in 1820.

The pattern is a "Beaded Olive" that appears to be a near match for manufacturer John Westervelt's pattern of the same name, less so akin to William Gale's "Mayflower" or John Polhamus' "Ionic."

The backside is a "Tuscan" pattern, which itself is yet another of the numerous generic "Olive" variants developed in the period.

They all have the same, fancy, lightly engraved, feathered script "MEP" monogram set sideways on the handles.

In exceptionally fine condition, they retain sharp pattern detail that is free of polishing wear. The bowls are all well-shaped, without dents, and have clean, pointed, tips. The finishes show a warm, even, patina.
