Mr. Sprague was born October 12, 1798 in Cooperstown, New York. According to information online, he appears to have been apprenticed to William Platt of Columbus, OH around 1810, and by 1815 was in business for himself.

Fine American Coin Silver Fiddle Shell Pattern Tablespoon - Lewis Cary
click for details
Offered is a lovely American coin silver fiddle and shell pattern table spoon by well-known Boston silversmith Lewis Cary (1798 - 1834), who probably apprenticed under Churchill & Treadwell, and who seems to have operated from about 1821 until 1830. Cary died at the age of 36, presumably from an illness. However, in his short lifespan, he produced a number of high-quality pieces, and this tablespoon is typical of his work. It is large and heavy at 9 inches in length and 62 grams, and it is... Click for details

Fine Coin Silver Dessert Spoon by William H. McDowell of Philadelphia

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. McDowell was typically listed in city directories as a watch and clock maker, and silver bearing his mark is exceedingly hard to find. The mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. Given the style of the piece and the appearance of an eagle head mark similar to that used by William...

Rare Philadelphia Teaspoon with Both of J. W. Gethen

Rare Philadelphia Teaspoon with Both of J. W. Gethen
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

Offered is a very rare early American coin silver platter spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Peter Gallard, working circa 1800-22. This piece measures 10 1/8 inches long, half an inch longer than any other Philadelphia coin silver tablespoon I've ever seen; typically a spoon this size would be considered a ragout spoon or platter spoon. This piece weighs about 52 grams and is engraved with a very well-executed period script monogram of "MVD"; there is also a good clear maker's mark (the mark on... 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 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...
