Unusual Early Pair of Trenton, NJ Coin Silver Spoons by Samuel Coleman

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by Trenton, New Jersey silversmith Samuel Coleman, who was working in that town circa 1785-1810. The style of these spoons is quite unusual, and was either inspired by Scandinavian or German spoons of the late 18th or very early 19th Century, or was an attempt by Coleman to create a transitional style between the "pointed end" or "Old English" patterns, and the "fiddle" pattern. In any case, it seems not to have caught on, as I... Click for details

Offered is a quite lovely and very well made set of four early American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith William Gethen, who like his brother John W. Gethen both made silver for others to retail, and retailed his own work.

These spoons are extremely well made and are in excellent condition, with no dents,... Click for details
