Rare Pair Philadelphia Spoons w/Mark of Joseph Anthony & Son c1810-14
click for details
Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony and his son Michael. This partnership was short-lived, lasting only from 1810-14. The two spoons here were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" despite the rubbing of the marks, due to the extreme rarity of the mark of this partnership. The spoons are each also marked with the manufacturer's mark of Thomas Harper (working circa 1811-17), who also made silver for (Jean)... Click for details

Condition is good overall, with some surface wear and some minor dents and dings to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All in all a fine spoon by one of the most desirable American makers!

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr., circa 1790-1800.

Although the maker's mark is partly rubbed on this spoon, the part that is visible matches one of Nathaniel Coleman's known marks. This spoon is also engraved with an 1804 date, probably done later to commemorate an event like a wedding or birth. The front of the spoon bears a period engraved monogram. This piece...

Rare Farmville, VA Southern Coin Silver Master Salt Spoon by Wiltse

Offered is a fine and scarce rural Virginia coin silver master salt spoon bearing the maker's mark E.WILTSE for either Edmund Wiltse (working in Farmville, VA circa 1826-48) or his son Edward (working in Farmville circa 1847-99). I suspect this to be the work of the father, as this spoon has no manufacturer's marks (most of the later pieces do) and by style probably dates to the 1835-45 timeframe. However, there is no way to be sure. This piece measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs... Click for details

Old Friends

Gorham
click for details
Dating c. 1860, "Bust" is one of those patterns that helped created what might be called Gorham's first golden age of design.

The defining feature of the line is a cast, in most instances female, "bust" that surmounts the slender, square handle.

A product of the Classical Revival movement of the period, the figure sits atop a pedestal base, much as she might be presented in a museum or salon, or in a wall niche in an athenaeum.

This piece is a 5 7/8" long, not quite 1.0 T. oz., coin... Click for details

One of the most well-known names in New London, Connecticut, silversmithing, John Proctor Trott left a significant legacy in his extensive body of work, including some significant ecclesiastical pieces.

Long-lived, 1769-1852, he began working in the 18th century and continued well into the 19th century.

This 5 7/8 long, not quite .6 T. oz., teaspoon dates from early in the 1800s. It is unusual in that it is a patterned piece rather than one of the simple, unembellished, designs... Click for details

Dating circa 1865, this server measures 8 1/8" long and weighs 1.9 T. oz. It is a hotcake, aka pancake, lifter, which is a form characterized by a flat, generally round, functional end that is well adapted to its purpose.

This is an especially fine example in mint condition. It is Philadelphia in origin, marked "J.E. Caldwell & Co.," who would have retailed it. It is of a style and quality that suggests George Sharp or Peter Krider as a likely manufacturer.

A substantial sized serving piece, this item measures 8 1/2" long and weighs a generous 2.9 T. oz. The form is identified, at least in later examples than this, as a buffet fork. It is characterized by its six, narrow and lengthy, pointed tines, all joined to a broad heel.

It is a very early example of Kirk's touchstone "Repousse" pattern. Stamped "S. Kirk 1015.," which the Baltimore Museum of Art reference work on Maryland silver indicates was used 1846-61. The silver standard is roughly... Click for details

L. Le Gross

Measuring 7 3/8" long and weighing just over .9 T. oz., this c. 1835 "Tipt" coin silver dessert or place spoon is marked "L. Le Gross."

Identification for this, presumably, retailer is elusive, but other pieces with the same name bear the pseudo hallmark of silversmith Richard Huntington of Utica, so this likely places Le Gross in central New York.

It is a well-formed item, with a broad end, and high, rounded shoulders off the somewhat elongated, pointed tip bowl.
