Two Benedict, New York,
click for details
These two, coin silver, spoons are matching in all ways save for their sizes. One is an 8 9/16" long, 2.1 T. oz. tablespoon, and the other a 7", 1.0 T. oz. place or dessert spoon.

They are marked "Benedict," for Samuel Ward Benedict, a well-known New York City jeweler and watchmaker, working 1818-60.

In his work on marks, John McGrew attributes the "bust, lion, C" pseudo hallmark that also appears on them to the "Gilbert-Cunningham/Cooper Complex."

They are a "Prince Albert" pattern... Click for details

L. Le Gross
click for details
Measuring 7 3/8" long and weighing just over .9 T. oz., this c. 1835 "Tipt" coin silver dessert or place spoon is marked "L. Le Gross."

Identification for this, presumably, retailer is elusive, but other pieces with the same name bear the pseudo hallmark of silversmith Richard Huntington of Utica, so this likely places Le Gross in central New York.

It is a well-formed item, with a broad end, and high, rounded shoulders off the somewhat elongated, pointed tip bowl.

Exotic Shiebler Sterling Silver Wine Taster or Nut Spoon
click for details
George Shiebler's work is nothing if not imaginative and it often inspires speculation about design sources and function.

That is the case with this 5 7/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., presumably wine taster, or possibly nut spoon, with a likely late 19th century date.

It has an oversized, seemingly carved, roughly rectangular, 3 1/2" by 2 1/4", handle.

The design is enigmatic, and could trace to multiple origins.

Overall the imagery suggests it found inspiration in Aztec themes.... Click for details

One of the most recognized names among 19th century Baltimore silver workers, the elder Andrew Ellicott Warner is the "best known of a family of silversmiths," as stated in "Maryland Silver" published by the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Offered is a scarce American coin silver dessert spoon by A. C. Billon of Davenport, Iowa, circa 1849-65. Billon, whose first name appears from period newspaper notices to have been Alfred, started the first jewelry store in Davenport in 1849, and may have been in business as late is the 1890s. He may or may not have been related to the famous silversmith Charles Frederick Billon of St. Louis, and his progeny. This dessert spoon should date by style to the 1849-65 era. It is marked with...

Rare Mark, P.L. Taylor & Jones,

Multiple sources list silversmith and merchant Pardon L. Taylor, as born in Providence, Rhode Island, 1824, and working in Brooklyn, New York, where he died in 1860.

No reference, however, documents the "P.L. Taylor & Jones" mark on this large, 8 7/8" long, significant weight, 1.6 T. oz., "Tipt End" table or serving spoon, suggesting it was, like the man himself, a short-lived enterprise, and thus rare.

The piece is a superb example of what it is. Carefully honed and crafted, it... Click for details

Sold to Towle and Jones in 1860, Moulton's business formed the bedrock of the firm that eventually became Towle Silversmiths.
