Whiting

A weighty 1.2 T. oz., this spoon measures 6 3/4" long, which is the length of a dessert or oval soup.

Two aspects of it, however, suggest it was a youth spoon.

One is obvious, specifically the engraving in the bowl, which reads, "JEFF Dec. 10. 90," which is likely a birth date.

The second feature is the dual sided gold wash on the bowl. This is an unusual embellishment for a place piece.

The pattern is Whiting's multi-motif "Berry," in this case elderberry, which is portrayed on... Click for details

Offered is a scarce American coin silver teaspoon by Reading, Pennsylvania silversmith Prisca Levan Mannerback, who worked from about 1838 (the year of the death of his famous father, William Mannerback) to 1869. Mr. Mannerback appears not to have enjoyed his first name, as his work is always signed either L.MANNERBACK or LMB, with or without the READING city mark that appears on this spoon. The marks on this piece are clear and well struck. The period engraved script "MMc" monogram is... Click for details

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the rare maker's mark of silversmith and clockmaker William Drysdale (working in Philadelphia circa 1816-56), who despite his long working life left little of his work to posterity.

Offered is a very good pair of American coin silver table spoons by Philadelphia merchant and jeweler Theodore LeHuray, circa 1846-51. These tablespoons are rare survivors in that Theodore only went into the jewelry and silversmithing business for a few years, after his father (Nicholas LeHuray, Jr.) died in 1846. His attempt to carry on the family firm under his own name appears to have been unsuccessful, and he soon turned to other pursuits. The maker's mark of T LE HURAY in conjoined boxes is...

This piece is in a late 18th or very early 19th Century style, and is not typical of McKeen's usual fiddle pattern spoons. It may have been made to match an earlier English or American set of spoons. In any event, it is the Old English style, and has a period script monogram consistent with spoons of that generation. The... Click for details
