Making up for my lack of silver last year! Spent the morning in a pasture I've only hunted a couple times before. Lot's of targets and was quite pleased with what I found, especially the silver spoon!

Silversmith is Peter Nordbeck (1781-1861) from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Apparently Peter Nordbeck was considered one of the most skilled silversmiths of his time and his pieces are displayed in museums worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Royal Ontario Museum and the National Gallery of Canada!
