A 6 7/16" long, .9 T. oz. piece, this sugar spoon has a broad scallop shell bowl with high shoulders leading to a narrow handle that broadens into an oval, tipped end.

It also carries a "lion" pseudo hallmark that McGrew identifies in his benchmark work on marks as characteristic of the Hartford area, so this item likely traces to Sawyer's (earlier based on... Click for details

Offered is a very good American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Thomas F. Albright (born circa 1811), working in that city circa 1835 to about 1860 or later.

Offered is a rare example of the work of Frankford (in NE Philadelphia) clock and watch maker and silversmith Samuel Huckel (b. 1798 - d. 1883).

Offered is a fine early set of 18th Century American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Daniel Dupuy Sr. (b. 1719 - d. 1807). The mark on these is given to him rather than to his son in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths", but of course the son could have used any of the father's marks at some point. These spoons should date by style to the 1785-95 period, though they could be a little later. There are five spoons in total. Four are in fairly good condition, with some... Click for details

Offered is a fine early Winchester, Virginia coin silver ladle (probably a sauce ladle but perhaps a cream ladle) by by well-known Virginia silversmith James Meredith, who spent the majority (1812-60) of his career working in or around Winchester, VA. Judging by style, this piece should date to about 1825-35, but could be somewhat earlier or later. While spoons by Meredith are not uncommon, pieces like this ladle are much harder to find.

Farrington & Hunnewell

A favorite theme among American silver manufacturers of the 19th century, especially the 1850-75 period, there are many extant expressions of the "Grape" motif.

Few equal, and none exceeds, the design on this 7" long, approximately 1.3 T. oz., coin silver preserve spoon made by Boston's Farrington & Hunnewell. The portraiture is artful, realistic and balanced. While decorative, it is constrained, resulting in a design that would have been appealing even to the most decorous of Victorian...
