Circa 1850 American Coin Silver Mustard Spoon
This lovely mustard spoon is simply marked in block lettering JDP. It MAY have ben made by John Price of Newark, NJ circa 1840-1860. It is engraved on the handle in very fancy period script LH (I believe) The bowl has a nice tip to it, more like a ladle than flatter spoon. It’s perfect for use in a mustard pot.

DIMENSIONS: 4 1/8” long x 1” wide bowl
CONDITION: I have lightly polished it but polishing silver is not my way to zen so it could stand another polishing.
