One coin silver teaspoon, downturned tip back fiddle handle, marks for Samuel Bell (1797-1881). Condition: marks worn, some small areas of denting and pitting. 4-3/4" L, 0.3 troy oz. Silversmith Samuel Bell was active in Knoxville from 1819-1852 and the mark on this spoon is similar to the mark illustrated in Benjamin Caldwell's "Tennessee Silversmiths", p. 33-34. Samuel Bell also served two terms as Knoxville's mayor from 1840-42 and 1844-46. In 1852, Bell moved to San Antonio, Texas and continued his vocation as a silversmith.
