Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver table spoons in an uncommon and perhaps rare pattern, bearing NY manufacturer's marks (the pseudo-hallmarks) and a retailer's mark of S.Y. & Co. - the retailer could have been anywhere, but perhaps this one has been identified by someone. Despite many years of handling coin silver, I've not come across this particular pattern variation before; it is quite attractive. These tablespoons are also engraved with a period owner's name in script. They... Click for details

John Westervelt, Newburgh NY, "Ivy" Sterling Silver Melon Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

3587dd   On Hold


click for details
An unusual and highly specialized place piece, American melon forks seem to have taken their inspiration from a form that evolved in mid 19th century France. Few makers produced them, and even then in not many patterns, so they are truly rare items.

This 8 1/4" long, weighty at approximately 2.0 T. oz., solid silver, example was made by John Westervelt of Newburgh, New York, in about 1870.

The pattern, "Ivy," is one of his full line designs, and as the name implies, features an array of... Click for details

Nathaniel Munroe, Baltimore, 10.15 Silver Teaspoon
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3561f   $28.00


click for details
Long lived, Nathaniel Munroe was born in Concord, Massachusetts in 1777 and died in Baltimore in 1861, where he began working in 1815, and may have worked in Selma, Alabama, 1842-50 (source Maryland Silver, Baltimore Museum of Art).

This example of his production is a single, 6" long, not quite .5 T. oz., teaspoon, marked "N. Munroe," "10.15" for the Baltimore standard roughly equivalent to coin silver, and a "star," which may be a journeyman's mark.

It has a plain end with a... Click for details

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver master salt spoons or shovels by noted New York City silversmith William Adams (b. 1802 - d. 1861), an important and successful maker who received the commission for the Mace of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Julius Hollister, whose name along with the words "Pure Coin" appears on the backside of this 5 3/4" long, .6 T. oz., fork, began working in Hartford, Connecticut in 1841, then relocated to Oswego, New York, with a short time in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

While Hollister was of no particular distinction, this pickle or early pastry fork is an unusual form in that it has four tines, the lowest one of which is widened. Most examples of such mid 19th century pieces have three tines.
