Albert Coles
click for details
Produced circa 1860 by New York City's Albert Coles, this pickle fork and knife set are an idiomatic form for the period.

The knife measures 6 7/8" long while the fork measures 6 1/4". The combined weight is approximately 2.1 T. oz., but a substantial portion of this is the filling in the handles.

The pattern is a "Leaf" variant with other elements that resemble common motifs of the time. In this case, the look is quite similar to Polhamus' "Armor."

The blade of the knife is... Click for details

Philadelphia Coin Silver Tablespoon by William Miller

A very good early American coin silver table spoon marked W.MILLER with a pseudo-hallmark of an eagle. This mark is sometimes given to a South Carolina silversmith by the name of William Miller, but the weight of evidence is that this mark is one of the marks used by Philadelphia silversmith William Miller, working circa 1810-40. So, likely not Southern coin silver. This spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only moderate wear from normal usage. It is... Click for details

This tablespoon bears a period script monogram of "JFCB" or "JFB" and is in excellent condition, with little wear and no dents, splits or repairs. This piece... Click for details

A scarce American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith and watchmaker John Townsend, circa 1825-50. John Townsend's son John K. Townsend was also a watchmaker, as well as a dentist, and so this spoon could have been the work of the son, though more likely the father. The mark on the spoon is J.TOWNSEND in a rectangle, and the spoon is also decorated with period script monograms of "ALH" to the front and "AH" to the back. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs... Click for details

Many 19th century social conventions seem at odds with current practices. Such is the manner of notating gifts or presentations. The first person of interest in today's world is the recipient, while the second one is the giver; the order is "to" and "from." The 19th century practice was typically the reverse of this, with the giver the more significant figure.

That custom is evidenced by the inscription on this large, 9 3/8" long, 2.1 T. oz., coin silver serving spoon. The front is... Click for details

Abraham and William Wood "operated a solid silverware manufacturing business in New York City between 1849 and 1871" according to Dorothy Rainwater in her "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers." Coles and Reynolds was a successor firm and that operation was eventually bought out by George Shiebler, so the business lineage was lengthy and significant.

This 6 1/8" long, approximately .8 T. oz., oversize tea or possibly youth spoon is an example of the firm's rarely found "Lily"... Click for details

Newell Harding and his son by the same name were prominent Boston silversmiths and retailers who sources indicate also had a presence in Haverhill, Massachusetts, north of Boston in the industrialized Merrimack River Valley.

It is a "Fiddle Tipt" design dating c. 1840. Typical of the period, it is in atypically fine condition. It is perfectly shaped, with no tip wear, dents, burrs,... Click for details

E. Shaw, Philadelphia, Coin Silver Tablespoon

Multiple sources identify a single Edward Shaw as a Philadelphia silversmith, but none of them offers a mark.

Brix lists his dates 1825-30, which would be consistent with the style of this 8 3/8" long, nearly 1.3 T. oz., tablespoon stamped "E. Shaw" in a hatched cartouche. This would seem to provide a conclusive attribution. Catherine Hollan's publication "Philadelphia Silversmiths" is the most recent entry about Philadelphia silver and she indicates the 1850 and 1860 censuses located Shaw... Click for details
