Joseph Seymour of Syracuse, New York, used this mark circa 1850-1887 (Rainwater, "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers," ©1975.) This finely worked bright cut spoon has a scalloped, bowl, not lobed, with a lovely bright cut grapes, leaves and tendrils motif. The square tipped handle bears an oval monogrammed cartouche. The stem has no shoulders and is modestly decorated on the front while the back is edged in detailed wrigglework. This spoon measures 6⅝ and weighs 0.7 ounce (20 grams.) It is in excellent condition.
