Silver teaspoon with a pointed oval bowl with an incised triangular drop on the back and a downturned pointed-end handle with bright-cut decoration, which is marked "J+M" in a rectangle for Joseph Moulton III (1744-1816) on the backof the handle, and engraved with the initials "M*M" in block letter on the front of the handle. Son of silversmith William Moulton (1720-c.1793), Joseph Moulton III probably apprenticed with his father and possibly trained with his silversmith uncle Joseph Mouton II (1724-1795) in Newburyport. Stephen Decatur attributed three marks to Joseph Mounton II, two of which ("JM" in a rectangle, and "I. MOULTON" in a rectangle) and a third ("J M" with a cross between in a rectangle) Louse Belden suggests were shared by Joseph Moulton II and his nephew Joseph Mouton III.
