Edward and David KinseyQ: I have a silver ladle that is marked E & D Kinsey. Can you tell me who made it and how old it is?

A: Your ladle was made by Edward and David Kinsey in Cincinnati, Ohio. Edward worked from 1834 to 1861 and his brother, David, worked from 1840 to 1870. Your ladle was made sometime between 1844 and 1861, the years the brothers worked together. They made flatware and hollowware and were the major silver manufacturers in Cincinnati during that time.

Could be Christ. very ornate inside lined with wood and stamped on bottom Germany can anyone give me an idea of value and what the age is
