Lily Beaded Stuffing Spoon Coin Silver Carter Whitford 1856 Monogram JBP

American coin silver stuffing, platter or gravy spoon in a Lily and beaded pattern by Carter & Whitford of Concord New Hampshire, c.1856.

The firm was short lived, operating from 1856 - 1857, but George Henry Whitford, with his next partner, George Winslow Drew:

New Hampshire Agricultural Society, 1857, Concord NH. The firm of WHITFORD & DREW awarded $5.00 for the best exhibition of silverware. William B. Durgin was awarded second place.

At first ,we assumed that Carter & Whitford was that of a retailer, but perhaps not.

This especially attractive and useful spoon has a double struck Lily pattern with beaded edges on the handle and an elongated, fluted scalloped bowl.

Weighing 134 grams or 4.3 ozs. Troy, it is 12 5/8" long and, on the back of the handle, has a a period Gothic letter monogram: T B P.

The tarnish discoloration on the monogram has been cleaned. Forgive us for not re-taking the pictures.

Monogrammed as described above, the soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.

The excellent original condition and clear detail, with no removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
