Skimmer, Brass, Signed, R. Lee
(Richard Lee Sr./Jr. (1775-1858), Springfield, VT, 1795-1815

Pierced ladle featuring raised circular bowl attached with three small rivets to a slender, faceted, downturned handle flattened into a flared and pointed end with pierced hole; all rivets domed on front and flat on back. Back of handle struck "R.LEE" in raised roman letters in a scalloped rectangle. Attributed to Richard Lee Jr. (1775-1858), who worked in Springfield, Vermont, 1795-1815, and Beverly, MA, 1816-1820. Lee Jr. was the son of Richard Lee Sr. (1747-1823), an itinerant pewterer who worked in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Springfield, VT, between 1773 and 1823. Lee Sr. is believed to have sold brass and pewter made by his son; both Lees are thought to have used the same marks, making it difficult to attribute pieces to the father or son.
