Grouping of Southern items including a Tennessee Daguerreotype & 4 Southern coin silver spoons. Item 1: Southern sixth plate daguerreotype of a gentleman, depicted with his hand leaning against a book, chairback or table sign reading "D. Adams Daguerreotype Nashville". 3-1/2" x 3-1/4". Daguerreian researcher John S. Craig writes that "Dan Adams was reportedly an early daguerreian operator for Brady in New York City. Adams was listed as a daguerreian and engraver in Nashville, Tenn. from 1855-1861, but one source has placed him in Nashville as early as 1850. From 1855 to 1860 he advertised as both a daguerreian and an engraver at 25 Public Square. In 1860-1861 he advertised only as a daguerreian and ambrotypist at 25 Public Square, over Gowdy's Jewelry Store." Items 2, 3, 4, and 5: Four American mid 19th century coin silver teaspoons including 2 in the Fiddle Swell pattern by Abraham Shire (working Cincinnati 1858-1862 and Paris, Ky 1865-c.1908), one marked for E. Jaccard of St. Louis (c. 1855), and one Fiddle pattern teaspoon marked Sam'l Kirk, 10.15 (Baltimore, 1828-1846). 1.90 oz troy. CONDITION: Item 1: Minor edge degradation and light scratches/abrasions, overall good condition. Items 2, 3, 4 and 5: Overall very good condition. Kirk spoon has bend to handle and some small dents to bowl. All pieces monogrammed.
