Pair Large American Colonial Coin Silver Spoons John Trott 1790s - 9 inches long
Presented is a fine quality pair of early American colonial silver spoons. Each
piece is hallmarked on the reverse J.P.T. for John Proctor Trott. Trott was
born in 1769 and died in 1852. He worked in the New London Connecticut area his
whole life. His father was the silversmith Jonathan Trott. Trott had several
partners and these spoons appear to be from one of the earlier partnerships.
Trott was making silver at least as early as 1792, but considering that his
father was a silversmith he probably learned the trade from a very young age.

monogram removals, and no repairs.

The total weight is 100.8 grams or 3.555 ounces.
