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:
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!
* Born: abt 1771, East Hartford CT
Events in his life were:
* He worked from 1804 to 1809 as a silversmith and clockmaker in Windsor VT 7
* He worked from 1809 to 1817 as a silversmith and clockmaker in Montreal Canada 7
* He was a partner from 1817 to 1830 with J. A. Dwight in Montreal Canada as CHENEY & DWIGHT with a shop at 104 St Paul Street. 7
