Item 1321
$750

Coin silver ladle, circa 1835, marked “ANDẉE Warner” and “10.15.”  The number “10.15” indicates a silver standard of 10 ounces 15 penny-weight Troy which is 89.6% silver, in line with the silver standard of Spain and its colonial settlements.  In February 1830 the Baltimore Assay Act was changed so that Baltimore silversmiths were no longer required to conform to an 11 lbs. standard silver, troy weight mixed with 1 lb. alloy (copper), resulting in a 91.7% silver purity.  Instead, the standard was changed to the 89.6% silver purity, and silversmiths were required to show a mark indicating the new standard.  

Andrew Ellicott Warner, born in 1786, was the son of Cuthbert and Ann Smith Warner.  Andrew’s father was a silversmith.  Andrew at age 19 with his brother Thomas formed a partnership in Baltimore during 1805 and continued to work together until 1812.  After the partnership was dissolved, Andrew continued working in the same shop on North Gay Street until his death in 1870, according to notes about Andrew in Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Maryland Silver in the Collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art, text by Jennifer Faulds Goldsborough, 1975.  

Length is 13¼ inches and weight is 6.9124t oz.  Condition is very good with no dents and minor scratches.
