This 7" long, very weighty at 1.8 T. oz., coin silver spoon variously identified as a place, dessert, or oval soup, has a double provenance.

It is marked Bailey & Co. (1848-78) for the firm that became Philadphia's renowned "Bailey, Banks & Biddle." It also carries the pseudo hallmark of manufacturer "Taylor & Lawrie," who sold to "Bailey & Kitchen," forerunner of "Bailey & Co."

Excellent Philadelphia Coin Silver Teaspoon by Thomas F. Albright

Offered is a very good American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Thomas F. Albright (born circa 1811), working in that city circa 1835 to about 1860 or later. This spoon probably dates to the 1835-50 range as it bears the Philadelphia eagle pseudo-hallmark or trademark in use mainly between 1825 and 1850 or so. This spoon also has a clear, well-struck maker's mark, which was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece... Click for details

Scarce Early Frankford (Philadelphia) Spoon by Samuel Huckel, c1818-30

Offered is a rare example of the work of Frankford (in NE Philadelphia) clock and watch maker and silversmith Samuel Huckel (b. 1798 - d. 1883). This teaspoon by style should date to the early part of Huckel's career, circa 1818-30. His silver flatware is very hard to find, and the mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece measures about 5 11/16 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. It has a good clear maker's mark and features... Click for details

Offered is a fine early set of 18th Century American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Daniel Dupuy Sr. (b. 1719 - d. 1807). The mark on these is given to him rather than to his son in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths", but of course the son could have used any of the father's marks at some point. These spoons should date by style to the 1785-95 period, though they could be a little later. There are five spoons in total. Four are in fairly good condition, with some... Click for details

These teaspoons also each have a period engraved script monogram. They measure about 5 7/8 inches in length on average, and the pair weighs a total of about 28 grams.

Offered is a scarce York, Pennsylvania coin silver teaspoon 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 spoon 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 completed. This teaspoon has an engraved... Click for details

Offered is a good set of four Ohio coin silver spoons by little-known Cincinnati silversmith and jeweler Abraham Palmer, working circa 1833 into the 1860s. Palmer apprenticed in the house of Samuel Kirk & Co. in Baltimore, and commenced business on his own in Ohio around 1833.

Offered is a scarce example of marked Dayton, Ohio coin silver by a short-lived partnership of jeweler Powell (or Paul) A.

This spoon is engraved with a date in slightly later script, and has a good legible maker's mark. It measures about 6 3/16 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is only fair, as it has numerous small dings and scratches, but there are no... Click for details

Offered is a rare American coin silver spoon by little-known Philadelphia silversmith, clockmaker and watchmaker Washington Sailer (also spelled Sailor in some sources). Sailor appears in Philadelphia directories circa 1825 to 1833, according to Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths". The mark on this spoon was used for that book; I've not seen another example of his silver yet. Sailer's widow died in 1890 at the age 85, making her birth around 1805 - one would expect Mr. Sailer's birth to be... Click for details
