We offer this unusual antique shovel-shaped coin silver sugar spoon from silversmiths in the workshop of Newell Matson. Matson himself was a businessman, not a silversmith, who owned a series of small retail stores which generally carried jeweler's goods and coin silver. The spoon is a fiddle shape. The marks date the manufacture of this piece to between 1867 and 1888. (Rainwater, "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers," ©1975.)
The delicate spoon weighs 0.6 ounces and is approximately 6-1/8 inches long. It bears the monogram "MEC" and is in excellent condition.
