George Sharp

The 1860s saw a proliferation of three dimensional designs that included a ball, sphere, knob, and perhaps scarcest of all, cube form end as found on this very large, 11 1/4" long, 3.5 T. oz., (likely vegetable) serving fork.

Made by Philadelphia's George Sharp, who is most associated with this style, and particularly so his "Ball End," it is stamped "Patent 1863," "G.S.," and "Sterling," on one of the facets of the six-sided handle.

The cube is substantial, measuring 3/4" square, and... Click for details

Lovely 18th Century Coin Silver Sugar Tongs by Benjamin Bussey

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by Dedham, Massachusetts silversmith Benjamin Bussey (1757-1782), whose work is rarely seen. He worked from 1778 to an unknown date - this pair of tongs dates to about 1785-95, so at least to that period. He apparently moved to Boston around 1792, and may have shifted his focus at that time. This piece measures about 6 3/4 inches in length, and weighs about 34 grams. The period engraved script monogram of "MS" is surrounded... Click for details

Offered is a nice American coin silver long-handled salt spoon or condiment spoon, circa 1810-30, marked D.OLIVER in a rectangular punch. This mark is attributed by Ensko to a Daniel Oliver of Philadelphia, circa 1805, but Hollan was unable to uncover any objective evidence supporting this attribution for her book "Philadelphia Silversmiths". Nonetheless, the mark on this spoon was included in the book for discussion purposes. I have not been able to locate any additional information on this... Click for details

J.E. Caldwell Engraved Coin Silver Fish Serving Fork

Dating from the middle of the 19th century, this item is thoroughly a period piece as well as emblematic of work from Philadelphia where it was made.

It is an 8 7/8" long, 3.0 T. oz., fish serving fork. It is distinct from later and more common examples of this form by virtue of its multitude of tines, namely eight. Indeed, it resembles a sardine fork, only in much larger scale.

It is stamped "Coin" and "J.E. Caldwell," who made have been the manufacturer but likely was simply the... Click for details
