The two spoons here were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" despite the rubbing of the marks, due to the extreme rarity of the mark of this partnership. The spoons are each also marked with the manufacturer's mark of Thomas Harper (working circa 1811-17), who also made silver for (Jean)... Click for details

Offered is a very fine and large early American coin silver dessert spoon by Philadelphia silversmith William Hanse McDowell, working circa 1817 to his death in 1842.

Unusual Coin Silver Teaspoon by Joseph Shoemaker of Philadelphia
Silver : Coin Silver

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20150822-01   $15.00


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

Their run in business together appears to have been rather unsuccessful; aside from this teaspoon, I have observed... Click for details
