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

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

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

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...
