Coin Silver Teaspoon by Lucas Ryerson
click for details
Offered is a scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Lucas Ryerson (1771 - 1855). Ryerson was born and died in New Jersey, but his exact working dates and locations are something of a mystery. He is often described as having spent the majority of his working life in York, PA, moving back to New Jersey only around 1840 to continue working as a silversmith and clockmaker. However, this seems to be contradicted by the known events and listings in his life that took place largely... Click for details

Littleton Holland, Baltimore, 1818 Large Coin Silver Serving Spoon
click for details
There is a lengthy entry about Littleton Holland, 1770-1847, in the Baltimore Museum of Art's volume "Maryland Silver." The biographical material states that, curiously, "Nothing is known of Holland's parents, place of birth, or training."

Yet the entry further adds, "A considerable amount of fine silver by him survives, and his name appears consistently in extant Assay Office returns," so he went from relative obscurity to a noted craftsman working in a significant early American setting. ... Click for details

This spoon measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair, with tip wear and... Click for details

Rare Philadelphia Teaspoon with Both of J. W. Gethen's Marks Ca. 1815
click for details
Offered is a very rare example (used in Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths") of a spoon bearing both of John W. Gethen's known marks. By style, this spoon should date to the 1810-15 range given its square shoulders, but it could be a bit earlier or later. Although Gethen lived until 1846, he seems to have made little silver after about 1819, and may have turned to other types of manufacturing. Most if not all of his IWG-marked spoons are stylistically associated with the first two... Click for details
