Item 1322
$300

Coin silver teaspoon marked “J SELPH” circa 1825.  John Selph worked in Fayetteville, N.C. as a silversmith from approximately 1804 until his death in 1837.  According to George Barton Cutten in his book Silversmiths of North Carolina 1696-1860, revised by Mary Reynolds Peacock, Second Revised Edition 1984, Selph as late as 1836 advertised silver spoons and other ware of his own manufacture.  The spoon being offered is of the same shape and form of spoons made by Selph as shown in Cutten’s book at page 150.  

The spoon has substantial wear on the front making the monogram almost unreadable.  However, it appears to be “PE” in script.  The mark of “J SELPH” remains fully legible.  

Length is 5½ inches and weight is 0.32151t oz.
