Offered is a rare example of the output of the short-lived partnership of Baltimore jewelers William D. Shurtz and Ira C. Lyon working in Baltimore at 107 Baltimore Street between 1845 and 1846. Perhaps because of the brevity of their partnership, these men are not well recorded working together; however, they published announcements of the commencement and the dissolution of their partnership in the Baltimore Sun, which I can supply if interested.

Offered is a very rare example of the wares of Philadelphia silversmith and jeweler Michael Gouiran, working in that city circa 1820-33.

Although Mr. Baldwin moved to St. Joseph circa 1850 and was the first silversmith in that town, the ladle should be from 1855 or later due to the engraving, which provides "N.W.A.S." over "Mo.", denoting the North-western Agricultural Society (of Missouri).

This Society was one of several formed by an 1855 Act of the Missouri State... Click for details
