I just bought two teaspoons identified as Stone Sterling. They have "STONE" with a hammer head to the left, and with the hammer handle crossing the "T" of STONE and with "B" off to the right of the mark.

There is a monogram on the front in simple block letters and "1912" on the back in considerably more elegant characters including serifs.

The pattern is very much like Pointed Antique by Dominick & Haff although a bit narrower at the broad part of the handle. Does anyone know of a specific pattern name or beginning date for this silver by Arthur J. Stone or his associates?

My guess would be that your spoons can be attributed to the craftsman Charles W. Brown who worked for Stone as a spoonmaker from 1912 to 1937. Stone marks during this period typically included the hammer and Stone mark you describe followed by the mark of the craftsman. Elenita Chickering's book on Stone also includes a photo of an orange spoon with the Charles Brown mark in a pattern that she says looks like Durgin's Chatham but that also looks like Pointed Antique.
