    Spoon manufacturer?

    Thiese spoons were given to me by a family member but I couldn't find the manufacturer or the age. Any ideas on who the manufacturer is or the age - Looks like "MC" to me? The spoons measure about 5 inches long. Thanks!

    Re: Spoon manufacturer?

    I'll take a stab at it I found this genealogical database of American Silversmiths. Here is the C section:

    http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb....ightnames2.htm

    I looked at Martin Cheney because he seemed like maybe from the right time period and area - but I found he was more famous for making clocks and I haven't been able to find any silver pieces attributed to him yet. Maybe this will help you though... Very cool spoons!

    Martin Cheney

    * Born: abt 1771, East Hartford CT
