Bottom underside struck once "HYDE & GOODRICH" in raised serif letters in a rectangle.
Retailed by Hyde & Goodrich of New Orleans, LA; in business, 1816-1866. Possibly made by their firm or another firm in New Orleans, or imported, probably from New York. The handle is identical to ones seen on 1850s New York silver, and Hyde & Goodrich were selling New York pieces at that time.
