Three pieces of New Orleans / Creole coin silver flatware by Jean-Marie Lamothe and Jean-Baptiste Lamothe, two tablespoons and one fork, all in the "Mid-Rib Fiddle" pattern (also known as "Uniplat" in France). All are marked "Lamothe" in rectangle and are monogrammed en verso L.L. Spoons 8-1/4" L, fork 8"L. 6.495 oz troy combined weight. Jean-Marie and Jean-Baptiste Lamothe continued their family's silversmithing tradition from 1824-1846 in New Orleans (see lot # 81); these pieces exhibit the heavy, simple qualities of traditional French Colonial silver associated with the work of their father, Pierre Lamothe. Provenance: the collection of John Montague, Memphis, Tenn. CONDITION: Very good condition with expected wear to monograms and marks, some wear to ends of spoons.
