Good Philadelphia Coin Silver Teaspoon by Alexander C. Morin, Ca. 1820
click for details
Offered is a good American coin silver tea spoon by Alexander C. Morin, a Philadelphia silversmith who was born on French territory and was a refugee from Santo Domingo after uprisings there. He was in business in Philadelphia by 1813 and worked for many years, though silver bearing his maker's mark is surprisingly scarce. This mark is perhaps his earliest and is rather crude compared to his other main maker's mark. This piece has earlier and more florid engraving with regard to the monogram... Click for details

Philadelphia Dessert Spoon by George K. Childs with Rare
click for details
Offered is a Philadelphia coin silver dessert spoon by well-known silversmith George K. Childs, whose work is often seen, but almost exclusively with his G.K.CHILDS mark. Two other marks, G.CHILDS and the G.K.C. mark on this piece, are much, much rarer. I've observed only one example each of those two marks in the past fifteen years, and the mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. The maker's mark is clear and well-struck. This piece measures... Click for details

Philadelphia Coin Silver Tablespoon by Benjamin Robinson Ca. 1818-44

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Benjamin Robinson, working in that town circa 1818-44. By style, this piece most likely dates to 1825 or after, but could be a little earlier. This piece measures about 8 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 40 grams. Condition is pretty poor, with quite a bit of bowl wear and moderate overall surface wear. Nonetheless worth saving from the scrappers, in my view. All in all a nice example of Robinson's mark with... Click for details

This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. It has a period engraved script monogram and a clear, well-struck maker's mark. Condition is good... Click for details

Offered is a nice example of American coin silver bearing the maker's mark of little-known Baltimore silversmith Charles H. Pepar, who was advertising in the Baltimore Sun in the 1840s. The book "Silver in Maryland" describes his birthdate as about 1812, and notes he was working at least from 1845. The fineness mark of 10.15 on these would not have been seen after about 1860, and the style of these spoons is consistent with the 1840-60 period. Each spoon has a legible maker's mark and a period... Click for details

Slightly more elaborated than "Cottage" as popularized Gorham, this rounded end design with a small fleur-de-lis, slightly upturned, tipped end has a thread edge.

The formal name may be "Threaded" as advertised by the manufacturer, Boston's Newell Harding, as indicated by the "N. H. & Co." mark that appears on the backside of this 4 15/16" long, weighty at just over .4 T. oz., nut pick. Other marks include "Coin" and "Pat. 66."

A "Fiddle Tipt" design typical of their early 1850s period, these eight teaspoons might at first seem undistinguished from the substantial inventory of such pieces that still exists.

These 5 7/8" long, 3.9 T. oz. the set, spoons are exceptional, however, in several regards.

One is that they are an original matching set, with each piece monogrammed in a fancy script "M.H." placed sideways on the handle.
