Offered is a nice pair of American coin silver dessert spoons by little-known Connecticut silversmith Nathaniel Langdon Proctor (1824-1908), working in Oxford, CT circa 1845. It appears Mr. Proctor was not successful in his chosen career, as he was listed by the 1850 census as a 'pedler' (peddler). His mark certainly seems to be uncommon. These two dessert spoons each have a period engraved script monogram, and each has a well-struck example of Nathaniel L. Proctor's maker's mark. These... Click for details

Offered is a rare American coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of a Minnesota jeweler, D. C. Greenleaf, working in St. Paul between the mid-1850s and his death around 1880.
