Set of Three Bright Cut Spoons by William Bradford Whiting
Set of three large bright cut coin
silver spoons, marked “W. Whiting.”
William Bradford Whiting is only referred in the Silversmiths of
Georgia at page 106. According to
Cutten it was probably William Bradford Whiting (1766-1810) who was in a
partnership for some period with his uncle, Ebenezer Whiting. The Whitings were from Norwich, Connecticut
and back from there to Savannah. These
spoons could have been made in either place.
The spoons are in excellent condition except for some dents in two of
the bowls. Monogram of “IVD” over “N”
over “SM” in block lettering.
