Presented is a fantastic old American silver demitasse spoon, dating to 1700-1740. The spoon is made in a handsome classical form, with a pronounced rattail design to the back of the bowl and an upward turned pip to the terminal of the handle. The back of the terminal has an old marriage monogram of I * E beneath L, in block style lettering. A nice rare example of colonial American silver. 

The spoon is in good overall condition, particularly for its age. There are a couple of dings to the bowl, and a little wear to the rattail design on the back of the bowl, though it is still fairly pronounced. There is a little wear to the edge of the terminal of the handle. No breaks, no monogram removals, and no repairs.

The spoon is stamped with a maker's mark of IW on the stem. This is possibly the work of John Wendover of NY who was producing from the 1690's until his death in 1727.

The spoon is nitric acid tested and guaranteed coin purity silver (900/1000).

The spoon is about 4 ¼ inches long.

The spoon weighs 8.2 grams.
