Each of these two, matching, coin silver teaspoons measures 5 3/4" long, while the pair weigh just over 1.0 T. oz. combined.

Having "Reverse Tipt" ends on down turned handles, thumb drops on the backsides of the bowls, and inscribed "CJP" set sideways on the handle fronts, they are stamped "Hedges" for David Hedges, 1779-1856, of East Hampton, New York.

Their style places them in the early 1800s.

The Hedges family is deeply ingrained in the history of eastern Long Island, when it was... Click for details

Offered is a very rare set of three early American coin silver tea spoons by Easton, Maryland silversmith Robert Kersey, about whom little has been published. Birdback teaspoons by Mr. Kersey with the same maker's mark that appears on these spoons are known, and Kersey's traditional working date is given as circa 1793. It is evident from the style of these spoons that he worked a while longer, as the squared shoulders were in use mostly from 1805-10, give or take a couple of years. These... Click for details

Samuel Kirk antique FIDDLE tablespoon

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver

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

Pair of Late 18th Century Coin Silver Sugar Tongs - Standish Barry?
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

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

20180106-16   $65.00

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

Group of Three Different Coin Silver Spoons by James Black c.1805-19
Silver : Coin Silver

Offered is a very good group of early American coin silver teaspoons, all three by James Black (working circa 1796-1819), but with different workmen's marks, and with two different maker's marks for Black. The marks on these spoons were used in the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan - the definitive reference on the subject. These spoons range in date from about 1805 for the transitional fiddle spoon without shoulders, to about 1815-19 for the fiddle spoon with pointed shoulders, which... Click for details

Offered is a nice set of two early American coin silver teaspoons by Connecticut silversmith Nathaniel Shipman. These two spoons are each clearly marked and are also decorated with period engraved script monograms. These spoons each measure a little over 5 inches in length, and the pair weighs about 17 grams altogether. Condition of these spoons is fair to good overall, with some bumping to the bowls and stubborn tarnish spots, but no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely pair of early CT... 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

Offered is a lovely and scarce large American coin silver gravy or sauce ladle by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 8 1/4 inches in length and weighing about 60 grams. This piece by style should date to about 1810 but could be a few years earlier or later. It is certainly more than two centuries old. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "HT". The ladle is marked to the reverse with one of... Click for details

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

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

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
