Two Benedict, New York,

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."

L. Le Gross

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

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
