This spoon bearing what I believe to be one of Ayres’ two earliest marks. The other mentioned mark is simply the “SA” in the same cursive script two letter cartouche. Both marks appear on silver , which could possibly be of a late 18th century date. Excellent original condition with what appears to be the original monogram (possibly a “W”) Lexington, KY. origin, circa 1800.
