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

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

In 1825, the Erie Canal opened, sending to NYC and beyond the agricultural riches of Ohio and ultimately the entire midwest. For 10 years -- from 1825-35 -- this cornucopia was celebrated in the arts, including the art of silvermaking. The basket-of-flowers and sheaf-of-wheat flatware patterns are examples; so too is this mug with its band of farm produce and equipment -- corn-filled wagon, barn, windmill, beehives, farm house, corn crib, scythe, rake, and a sheaf-of-wheat design repeated 10...
