These six elegant coin silver spoons were made by Farrington & Hunnewell in Boston circa 1835-1860. Each spoon bears the incused stamp "*F.&H" for Farrington & Hunnewell, active in Boston 1835-1885, as well as the stamp "N. HARDING" for Newell Harding, who was a silversmith and retailer active in Boston 1830-1860. It appears that the retailer Harding stamped his mark over the F&H maker's mark. All are also stamped "PURE COIN".
These sturdy coin spoons are plain with tipt back, no drop, no shoulders, and a simple script monogram "B". They each weigh 22-24 grams (0.8-0.9 ounces) for a total weight of 122 grams (5 ounces.) They measure 5¾" in length and are in excellent condition with no damage and very minimal use marks.
