Mid 19th Century Kirk 10.15 Silver
click for details
One of Samuel Kirk's earliest designs, and in production throughout the history of the firm, "Mayflower" features an engraved motif set on an otherwise plain handle.

This example is nearly as old as the pattern itself, dating between 1846-61, as indicated by the "S. Kirk & Son" imprinted on the backside. It is a 7 1/8" long, relatively heavy at 2.1 T. oz., hotcake lifter.

The standard mark, "10.15," also appearing on the handle reverse, is roughly the equivalent of coin silver and one... Click for details

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark J. G. THOMPSON incuse, and COIN incuse. This spoon is in the Philadelphia style, and probably dates to the 1850-60 period.

Unusual Early Pair of Trenton, NJ Coin Silver Spoons by Samuel Coleman
click for details
Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by Trenton, New Jersey silversmith Samuel Coleman, who was working in that town circa 1785-1810. The style of these spoons is quite unusual, and was either inspired by Scandinavian or German spoons of the late 18th or very early 19th Century, or was an attempt by Coleman to create a transitional style between the "pointed end" or "Old English" patterns, and the "fiddle" pattern. In any case, it seems not to have caught on, as I... Click for details

The style is typical of place and period, with a twisted stem, and scalloped edge, broad handle end.

The handle is set at... Click for details

Offered is a very scarce set of four York, Pennsylvania coin silver table spoons by John Brenise (1793 - 1846), who would have been working independently by about 1815 but for whom records are spotty. He is generally described as working in the 1830s and later, but this set of tablespoons is clearly earlier in style (probably circa 1825), and there is no reason to suppose he would have had a decade or more hiatus in his silversmithing and clockmaking career after his apprenticeship was...
