For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite... Click for details

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably... Click for details

Offered is a very early early (circa 1760-80) American coin silver tea or coffee spoon that appears to have a maker's mark of BB, for which there would be several candidates.

There are also some planishing marks visible on the end of the underside of the... Click for details
