Offered is a very rare 18th Century American coin silver tablespoon by the sought-after Baltimore silversmith Standish Barry (1763-1844), who is equally known for the silver coinage he struck, and his military career (he served in the Revolution as a teenager, and then in the Baltimore militia forces until late in life, achieving the rank of Colonel and participating in multiple battles during the War of 1812).

Silver in the Golden State published by the Oakland Museum of Art identifies two, albeit quite similar, "Medallion" patterns produced by San Francisco's "Koehler & Ritter" circa 1869.

D. Albert Soeffing in Silver Medallion Flatware notes this same distinction, and further adds that "the output of this medallion pattern does not seem to have been especially large," making this 7 1/2" long, 1.9 T. oz., example rather rare.

Again referencing Soeffing, this line was made in both... Click for details

preserve spoon with gilt shell bowl, length 9 1/8 inches, excellent original condition, weight 2.01 Troy ounces, retailed by Larmour & Co. of Baltimore.

Though admittedly my memory is not what it used to be, I can't recall ever having owned an item in this pattern. It is a wonderful naturalistic form which Krider executed with the highest quality. We believe that the original cat tail and butterfly model was executed in clay, cut to create the flat side, then folded over (see arrow in... Click for details

This 6" long, 1.3 T. oz., pair of coin silver tongs trace to Baltimore with an approximate 1830 date.

This information can be inferred from the marks, which are singular to Baltimore, and appear in an unusual combination on this particular item.

They include two "10.15" (coin) silver designations, one in italics, and the "head of liberty," used in conjunction with Baltimore assay marks beginning in 1815.

Measuring 8 1/8" long and weighing 1.8 T. oz., this coin silver item has a generously sized, 2 1/2" diameter, shell-shaped, pierced, bowl and "Reverse Tipt" handle.

Generally identified as a large sugar sifter, there is some argument to be made that pieces this scale from this period were actually early ice spoons.

In either case, it is a fine representation of what it is.

It is stamped "R. Fisher, Jr." and "331 Broad Way, N.Y." on the reverse, for Richard Fisher, working 1846-50, also... Click for details

"Jenny Lind" was a pattern first introduced by New York City's Albert Coles in 1850, although numerous contemporaneous manufacturers took up the design, leaving extant pieces that bear a variety of makers' marks.

This example, a 7 1/4", weighty at 1.5 T. oz., place, aka oval soup or dessert, spoon is a rarity though in that it is stamped "11" (one of Baltimore's individualized standard marks, for a .917 silver content, midway between coin and sterling) and "A.E.W" for Baltimore's Andrew...
