Coope & Leigh

Postby PrissyJane » Fri Oct 15, 2021 12:14 pm

Hullo. I found this spoon in a odd lot of coin, sterling, and plate. I believe it dates to 1813 in London, but the marks are pretty well rubbed. The Coope & Leigh mark is puzzling. That one is very clear, and I am wondering if it is possibly a retailer?

Thanks for any insight!

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

The marks are pseudos. Coope & Leigh, as you suggested, appears to be a Brooklyn based wholesaler/retailer:

Thanks for the reply and the welcome!

I have seen pseudo marks before, but these look so authentic to me. I guess I would’ve been duped in the 1800s!!
