Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark J. G. THOMPSON incuse, and COIN incuse. This spoon is in the Philadelphia style, and probably dates to the 1850-60 period.

Condition is very good overall, with modest surface wear and very minor dimples and scratches here and there, but no... Click for details

J. Bowman Twist Handle & Engraved Coin Silver Master Butter Knife
click for details
A 6 15/16" long, just over .7 T. oz., item, this master butter, or possibly pickle, knife dates from the mid 19th century.

It is marked "Coin" and with a somewhat rubbed "J. Bowman." Documentation on this mark is scant, but points to a Philadelphia watchmaker, as specifically identified by Catherine Hollan in her recent benchmark work, "Philadelphia Silversmiths."

The style is typical of place and period, with a twisted stem, and scalloped edge, broad handle end.

The handle is set at... Click for details

Large and Fine Olive / Tuscan Pattern Coin Silver Soup Ladle

Offered is a very good American coin silver soup or punch ladle in the Olive/Tuscan pattern patented by Michael Gibney as Pattern No. 59 in 1846; this example does not have manufacturers marks but bears the retailer's mark of Harbottle & Smith, working in Auburn, NY circa the 1850s and 1860s, and perhaps into the 1870s. This ladle probably dates to the 1850s. It is quite large at fourteen inches in length, and weighs a good 192 grams, or over six troy ounces. It is engraved with a period... Click for details

Exceptional Set of Four York, PA Coin Silver Tablespoons, John Brenise
click for details
Offered is a very scarce set of four York, Pennsylvania coin silver table spoons by John Brenise (1793 - 1846), who would have been working independently by about 1815 but for whom records are spotty. He is generally described as working in the 1830s and later, but this set of tablespoons is clearly earlier in style (probably circa 1825), and there is no reason to suppose he would have had a decade or more hiatus in his silversmithing and clockmaking career after his apprenticeship was...

Offered is a well-made late 18th Century American coin silver pair of teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Christian Wiltberger. By style, these spoons should date to the 1793-1800 timeframe, and not any later than 1805 at the outside. These spoons each have a very well-struck maker's mark and each is decorated with a period engraved script monogram. These spoons measure about 6 1/8 inches on average and the pair weighs a total of 36 grams. They are fairly substantial for this style. ... Click for details

Offered is a good pair of American coin silver teaspoons bearing the mark of John Shaffner of Lancaster, about whom little appears to be known. Shaffner seems to have been more a retailer or merchant than a working silversmith, but must have been successful as there are a fair number of extant spoons and other pieces bearing his mark. He appears to have been in business between about 1825-30 and 1850 or so. This pair of teaspoons has his mark, and each is engraved with a period monogram of "BH".... Click for details

Offered is a fine and scarce set of four American coin silver teaspoons in the fiddle and shell pattern by Philadelphia silversmith Peter Thomson, working there circa 1826-58. Despite his long career, Thomson's silver is very uncommon. The mark on these spoons was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan, and I've not seen another example. Each spoon has a good legible maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram of "MWY". These pieces measure... Click for details
