These three spoons, like most of Schaffer's silver, are characterized by an eccentric style and unusual proportions. They measure about 6 5/8 inches in length, on average, and they weigh about 58 grams altogether. Although under 7 inches in length,... Click for details

Unusual Coin Silver Teaspoon by Joseph Shoemaker of Philadelphia
click for details
Offered is an unusual example of an early American coin silver spoon made in the workshop of Joseph Shoemaker but also struck with a large mark of a "T" - the mark could be a journeyman's, but is so large and placed in such a way as to undercut Shoemaker's maker's mark. As such it is unlikely the mark was on the spoon when it was first marked by Shoemaker. It is possible the spoon was resold by someone else, but the most likely explanation is that it was an inventory stamp within the family. ... Click for details

Rare Coin Silver Teaspoon by Charles & George Fletcher of Phila.

Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of Charles and George Fletcher of Philadelphia, brothers to the famous silversmith and proprietor Thomas Fletcher, whose firm Fletcher and Gardiner would set the standard for monumental silver for a time in Philadelphia. Charles and George united in partnership in July 1818, and dissolved their union by early 1824. Their run in business together appears to have been rather unsuccessful; aside from this teaspoon, I have observed... Click for details

Offered is a rare example of early American coin silver flatware made in an English style, with proportions, weight and engraving appropriate to that taste. Crested American coin silver after the Revolution is for obvious reasons fairly uncommon; spoons made to match English sets are even more scarce. Another distinguishing feature of these spoons, in addition to the pattern and the engraved armorials of a dove of peace, is the unpublished mark for George K. Childs of Philadelphia. Hollan's...

Offered is an important find - an early American coin silver dessert spoon by John Beck, a silversmith working in Warrior's Mark, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania around 1824-30. This information comes from Metzgar and Whisker's "Pennsylvania Clockmakers and Watchmakers Goldsmiths and Silversmiths - A Checklist". Metzgar and Whisker also cite a reference to an 1887 history of Clarion County, which notes that one John Beck was the first watchmaker there (perhaps the late 1830s to 1840s). I have...
