Exquisite Set of 12 American Coin Silver Ice Cream Spoons circa 1860

Here is a fine set of bright cut, twist handle American coin silver ice cream spoons, or perhaps fruit spoons, stamped for the high-end Philadelphia retailer, "J.E. CALDWELL & Co." I have not been able to identify the pattern or the maker. The ornately engraved handles bear a lovely cypher monogram within a shield cartouche. The handle back is unmarked except for the retailer's stamp.

Together these spoons weigh 6.0 ounces (196) grams. They measure 5¾ inches and are in excellent condition.

Item ID: HS-140
