Who is the maker of these early 1800 tea spoons?

Postby Joerg » Sat Jun 23, 2018 3:16 pm

Hi
Today, I found these two spoons in a thrift shop. They are vermeil, on one spoon is the gold rather worn. They are marke for France, 1. grade, 1800 to 1810. I cannot find the marker. Can you help?
Thank you, Jörg

Arminjon I lists this mark (LAT, with a duck and a ball above) as that of Louis Auguste Taillepied, maker of couverts (forks & spoons), 14 rue des Anglais, registered 1801, with no other information (mark 2223). Oddly, Taillepied is not listed in any of the available Paris Almanacs of the period, but Paris civil records reveal:

Marie Louis Auguste Taillepied

Born: 20 Mar 1775, Paris, son of Louis Antoine Taillepied & Marie Anne Escorbiac

Married: 28 Oct 1797 [7 Brumaire an VI], Paris, Nôtre Dame de Paris parish, to Marie Elisabeth Lainé, daughter of Pierre Jacques Lainé & Elisabeth Antoinette Marchand

Died: 20 Apr 1847, Paris, 12th arrondissement; residence, rue St. Victor No. 76; occupation, spoonmaker

Buried: 22 Apr 1847, Cimetière du Sud, (now Cimetière du Montparnasse), Paris, 14th arrondissement)

Hope this helps!

And his father, Louis Antoine Taillepied, was a well-known silversmith.
