1847 Rogers Brothers Shell Pattern teaspoon in excellent condition. It has a lovely stylized gathered plume motif forming a shell at the top of the handle. I have been told that this pattern was first introduced around the 1860s.
Marked: 1847 Rogers Bros. A1 and a mark that looks like the Meriden Britannia Company mark. (It is difficult to make it out)
The Meriden Britannia Company was formed in 1852 in Meriden, Connecticut. The Rogers Bros firm was purchased by Meriden Britannia in 1862, thereby acquiring the 1847 Rogers Bros line.
5 7/8 inches long.
No dings, dents, pitting, disposal damage, simply surface wear from use and / or storage. There are light scratches from use. This spoon has a good shine even though I have not polished it with silver polish.
Thank you for looking!
