twice the B.P mark

Postby Arizona » Thu Jul 30, 2020 3:51 pm

So I came across this tea spoon, which I find quite old in style but I have no clue wether is american pre 1860 or not. Judging for the hallmark B.P it seems like it. Any clues on style, age, or maker? it has two marks, both identical.

Not a conclusion, but until we get more, just throwing out the possibility of Benjamin Pierpont (WEV might know more on this):

You must rule out provincial Denmark first, I have a suspicion about its form and artistry which leads me in that direction...

a pic of the back of the bowl would be very helpful in figuring out where this is from...

That is an interesting lead, probably you nailed it, but what is it so particular about it?
