Syracuse, NY Coin Silver Spoon by Hiram Judson w/Interesting Mark

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20191110-03   $18.00

Offered is a circa 1824-40 American coin silver teaspoon by Syracuse silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Hiram Judson, working circa 1824 to his death in 1853. By style, this piece would be on the early end of his career. The maker's mark of H.JUDSON is well struck, and there is another, very interesting mark in a shield form, perhaps heraldic. This mark doesn't appear to be associated with any other Judson pieces observed online, and may have been the mark of a transiting journeyman. In any... Click for details

Goodwin, Hartford, "Sheaf of Wheat" Coin Silver Long Serving Spoon

Old Friends  
4030f   On Hold


click for details
Measuring a lengthy 9 1/4" and weighing 1.6 T. oz., this serving spoon is stamped on the reverse "Goodwin" and "Hartford." The name could reference either or both of two brothers, Allyn or Horace, who worked independently in the first half of the 19th century, and as partners 1821-25.

The name accompanied by location seems to be a rare mark as standard sources fail to illustrate it (although the mark of "Goodwin & Dodd," 1811-21, includes "Hartford" as shown in Flynt and Fales work on New... Click for details

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward Lownes - by style and shape, this should date to around 1820. This piece has a rubbed but legible maker's mark, and a very fine period engraved script monogram. Please take a look at all of the pictures. This spoon measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. Condition is very good overall, with modest surface wear and a few sings of use, but no major dings and no splits or...

This piece is not for sale, but help me solve the mystery of who made this piece, and I will send you a very nice coin silver spoon in thanks! These twist-arm American coin silver sugar tongs measure about 7 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 49 grams. The maker's mark is a fairly crude SR in a serrated punch. Please take a look at all the pictures. The engraved arms and circular reserve might indicate a Western Pennsylvania or Midwestern, or perhaps Shenandoah Valley origin, but so far...

Samuel Kirk antique FIDDLE tablespoon
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2307   Sold


click for details
with short back midrid (a/k/a reverse fiddle tip't), pointed chamfered shoulders and a pronounced "flat" at leading edge, length 9 inches, weight 2.23 Troy ounces, monogrammed as shown. There is a small imperfection on back of bowl (see third photo) but otherwise fine condition.

We often speak of the "hallmarks" on American silver, but it is worth noting that very few pieces are actually hallmarked. This one bears the Baltimore assay office stamps commonly associated with 1824.

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith William Seal, born and perhaps trained in Virginia but known to be working alone and in partnership in Philadelphia between 1810 and 1822. He lived until 1853 but the style of his silver does not post-date about 1820. This piece is in good condition overall, with moderate wear and no dents, splits or repairs. It is nicely engraved with a period script monogram and has a legible maker's mark as well as... Click for details

20180107-01   $95.00


click for details
Offered is a nice pair of late 18th Century American coin silver sugar tongs marked only with a maker's mark of S.B - a mark given in Belden's "American Silversmiths" to Col. Standish Barry of Baltimore, MD. See Belden, page 49, mark d. for Barry. The strength of the attribution to Barry in Belden is based on stylistic similarities to known Belden work, and the relatively small number of potential craftsmen with the right initials working in the right time period. In any event, these sugar... Click for details

American? Silver Sugar Tongs Circa 1760-70 - Maker's Mark T.H Only
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180106-17   $125.00


click for details
Offered is a nice pair of 18th Century silver sugar tongs dating by style to the 1760s or early 1770s, bearing only a maker's mark of T.H in a rectangle. This maker's mark is fairly crude and doesn't look like a British mark, but the proportions of this pair of tongs look more British than American to me. So, are these tongs British, and dodge paying duty? Were they perhaps made provincially within the UK proper, far away from an assay office? Could they be from somewhere else in the Empire,...

Interesting American Silver Teaspoon Circa 1750-70 - Maker?
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180106-16   $65.00


click for details
Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon that by style appears to date to the 1750-70 timeframe; the maker's mark ends with an "E" that looks an awful lot like one of Samuel Edwards' marks, but I can't make out the first letter. The outline of the mark is right for Samuel Edwards as well, but the drop on the spoon is different from those I've seen used by Edwards. So, probably a different maker. Does anyone have a theory? This piece is engraved with block... Click for details

For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite... Click for details

Early Philadelphia Coin Silver Sugar Tongs by Joseph Anthony of Phila.

20170714-02   $67.50

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears... Click for details

Offered is a nice little early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Delaware and Pennsylvania silversmith Isaac Woodcock, circa 1815. At this time, Isaac (son of noted silversmith Bancroft Woodcock) was working in Well's Valley, PA (between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg). This teaspoon bears one of Isaac Woodcock's full name maker's marks, and a period engraved script monogram that appears to be "NRG". This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is barely... Click for details

Offered is a lovely example of a rare form in early American coin silver - a coffin-end pattern sauce or gravy ladle. This piece measures a little under 8 inches in length and weighs about 46 grams. It bears a lovely period script monogram of what appears to be "DSH". This piece has no maker's mark.
