Joseph Seymour started working independently as a silversmith and jeweler in Utica, New York, and moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1842. The company ceased to exist in 1905.
This lovely set of 5 teaspoons, circa 1850, is the French Tipt pattern, which is very similar to the fiddle-back handle design of the mid-1800's. Each are monogrammed with the original owners initials "C W" and are stamped "Sterling" as well as the Seymour hallmark of a star, circle, star. They measure 5 3/4" in length and weigh 3.45 ounces. Excellent vintage condition. Great early pattern.
