This wonderful early American coin silver soup ladle was made and signed by noted Philadelphia silversmith William Seal between 1810 and 1819. It is about 13 inches long and weighs about 150 grams. The bowl is 4-1/4 wide.
The ladle is in excellent condition, with minimal wear and no dings, dents, splits or repairs. It shows some very minimal pitting in the bowl, which was difficult to photograph (see the last photo).
It is nicely engraved with a period script monogram and has a clear, well-struck maker's mark and Seal's clipped-corner eagle head pseudo-hallmark. This piece by William Seal is extremely well preserved and would be a highlight of any serious collection of early American coin silver.
