A great, heavy weight American Coin Silver Fiddlethread & Shell Dessert Spoon, made by R & W Wilson, dating to circa: 1840. Has a wonderful, elaborate period monogram on the reverse----a presentation piece. Each an intertwined three letter monogram with 'to' between them. Possibly given to a husband by his wife (vise versa). Is in very fine condition----just about pristine. Measures approximately 6 7/8" long. Hallmarked on the reverse: R & W. W. Beautiful early 19th Century piece. Shows well in the photos and best in person! Photos taken with and without a camera flash.
