New Jersey and New York City Shell Handle Teaspoons - circa 1815
Six shell handle spoons (length 6-1/4
inches) marked “T&H” the “head of the King,” a “lion passant” and a capital
“C” on the back. T&H is for the
partnership of John Taylor and Horace Seymour Hinsdale who worked together from
1807 to 1817 in New York City and Newark, New Jersey. The monogram on the front is “JOB” or “LOB,”
the first letter being difficult to decipher.
Some very slight abrasions but generally in very good condition and the
shells are strong and unworn.
