6 Early, Matched Gorham & Webster Reverse Tipt Coin Place Spoons
click for details
Dating to some of the earliest years of the Gorham establishment, these six spoons are marked "Gorham & Webster," a partnership that dated 1831-37.

Each one measures 7 1/2" long, which is an unusual size by contemporary convention in that it is lengthier than a dessert spoon but not quite as long as a tablespoon. In its time, when large scale was favored, it was likely a standard place piece.

They have a substantial feel, although each one is marginally less than 1.0 T. oz., with the... Click for details

C. & A.W. Johnson, Albany,

Working with his brother, Alonzo, in Albany, New York, 1831-38, Chauncey Johnson is identified as a silversmith and jeweler.

In addition to the "C. & A.W. Johnson" for that partnership stamped on this 8 1/2" long, 1.5 T. oz., tablespoon, it also carries an "eagle, D, bust" pseudo hallmark. In his benchmark work on these marks, McGrew associates this with Hall and Hewson, also of Albany.

A straightforward, down-turned "Reverse Tipt," design, this is akin to much production of the period. ... Click for details

Rare St. Louis Salt Spoon by Horace P. Woodbridge c1835

Offered is a very scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Horace P. Woodbridge, who appears to have worked in St. Louis around 1835.

Mr. Woodbridge apparently died young at age 47; it is unknown how long he was able to make or mark silver. This salt spoon is quite small at about 3 1/2 inches in length, and weighs about 6 grams.

Heavy Forks by James H. Kelly of Pottsville and Lebanon
click for details
Offered is a set of three heavy coin silver table forks by little-known Pottsville and Lebanon, Pennsylvania jeweler James H. Kelly. The first mention I have found of Kelly is a newspaper advertisement run in 1846 by Kelly, seeking an apprentice watchmaker to work with him in Pottsville. Mr. Kelly stayed in Pottsville until at least the late 1850s, as his son was born in Pottsville in 1855 and the family relocated to Lebanon, PA when the son was "quite small." In Lebanon, James H. Kelly... Click for details
