Nice pair of early Chinese export silver tablespoons in the Old English pattern made by Cumshing (Canton, 1780-1820). They are marked CS with pseudo English lion and pseudo English duty mark. This is mark for Cumshing, one of the earliest recorded Chinese silversmiths. Each spoon is monogrammed "JM" and is 8 3/4" long. The pair weigh approximately 4.1 ozt. In very good condition with some minimal wear to the period monogram.

Note: a nearly identical piece monogrammed "JMB" (same style engraving, same marks, same pattern) is pictured in "Philadelphians and the China Trade 1784-1844", pg. 133. This service was owned by Jacob and Margaret Benners. Jacob Benners was a ship captain traveling to Canton between 1801-1810, the same time frame when these spoons were made.
