Born in 1785 in Albany, New York, sources indicate that Thomas H. Carson was working as a silversmith in that city in 1810 and in partnership there with Green Hall 1814-19.

This lengthy, 8 7/8" long, 1.9 T. oz., serving spoon is stamped with the "C&H" mark indicating that partnership.

The form is consistent with the period. The handle is plain front with a rounded end and a midrib on the backside and a plain drop on the heel of the bowl.

There is a large, double lined, feathered script monogram engraved sideways on the handle front.

In very good condition, wear is consistent with age, largely showing in surface scratches and some unevenness in the base of the bowl, which otherwise is free of tip wear, cracks, or repairs. There is an overall even, soft, patina.

Please note, a second one of these is available, identical to this save the bowl interior shows nicking and pebbling.
