This long handled salt spoon by Chicago silversmiths Smith Jones Sherwood and Eli Whatley of Chicago circa 1849-1854. The spoon is in very good condition with average wear for its age. The spoon has been polished. It is marked on the back Sherwood & Whatley and three pseudo marks. It is 4 3/4" in length and weighs 7.7 grams. A really nice piece.
