Pair of Scarce Coin Silver Tablespoons by Theodore LeHuray
click for details
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...

Offered is an excellent and scarce pair of American coin silver tea spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin, each bearing one of his rarest maker's marks - J.M'MULLIN in a rectangular punch. Mr. McMullin was successful and prolific, and had numerous maker's marks over his long career, but only one used a "J" for his first initial, rather than an "I". In about fifteen years of collecting Philadelphia silver specifically, these are the only examples of this maker's mark I was able... Click for details

Offered is an excellent and desirable American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddle and shell pattern by noted Philadelphia jewelers and silversmiths Thibault & Brothers, working in that town circa 1810-37. By style, this spoon probably dates to 1820 or later. This piece has a good engraved period script monogram and a well-struck, clear maker's mark. The die-struck shell decoration is relatively unworn. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition is... Click for details

Good 18th Century Style Coin Silver Spoon by Henry McKeen of Phila.
click for details
Offered is an interesting American coin silver teaspoon by Henry McKeen of Philadelphia, working as a watchmaker and silversmith in that town between about 1823 and 1861. 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

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

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

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

Offered is a very good and scarce Philadelphia coin silver spoon bearing the mark of Seelig Mindil, who was likely a merchant and retailer rather than a trained silversmith. The mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan. It is the only example of Mindil's mark I have come across. 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

This spoon dates to about 1817-25 by style, and the mark is a crude ANDERSON in a serrated rectangular punch. This mark is attributed by Ohio collectors to David Bush Anderson, Sr., though this has not been published so far as I know. If you have a different attribution, I would welcome the information. I have found a few spoons bearing this mark... Click for details

Offered is a lovely American coin silver master butter knife made by Hotchkiss & Schreuder in that firm's Laurel pattern and retailed by H. K. Newcomb of Watertown, NY. This piece is engraved with an owner's name in period script in one reserve, and the date 1851 in the other reserve. This is probably roughly contemporaneous with the manufacture of the piece. Laurel pattern is quite attractive, and this is a nice usable piece. Aside from one small area with a couple of scratches on the blade... 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

The handle is firm and there is no looseness to the pitch inside. This piece has a period engraved script monogram and well-struck marks of a sovereign's head, an anchor and a bird, perhaps...
