Item 1443
$600

Six dessert spoons, circa 1845, marked “Stewart” for George W. Stewart of Lexington, KY.  According to Marquis Boultinghouse’s Silversmiths of Kentucky, 1785-1900, the Lexington Observer and Reporter carried the following advertisement on April 4, 1846:  

                                        SILVER FORKS!
                                        TEA SETS, ETC.

       The subscriber has on hand and is manufacturing / Forks and Spoons of new and beautiful patterns / and guarantees the silver to be equal to the French / and Spanish standards, which he will sell as low as / can be purchased in the Eastern cities of the same / quality of silver.  Also manufacturing Tea Sets, / Pitchers, Cups, etc. of the best workmanship and / patterns.   I have on hand a fine assortment of genuine / M.I. TOBIAS and Wm. Robinson’s make of

                                        GOLD WATCHES

which I will sell low, and warrant to be good / time keepers.  Strict attention paid to the Repairing of Watches.   Every description of ENGRAVING neatly executed.

                                                            GEO. W. STEWART                                                             No. 1 Cheapside, Lex. 

It’s clear from Stewart’s advertisements and the silver that bears his mark that he was manufacturing much of the silver that he was also retailing. 

These spoons, being typical of well-weighted silver found with Kentucky and Tennessee maker marks, are in that category.   These spoons measure 7 inches in length, have a period “H” script monogram and are in very good condition.
