Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver table spoons in the Dionysus pattern, a Hotchkiss & Schreuder medallion pattern, retailed by S. Myers. I am not sure if this is Selim W.

They are in excellent unworn condition except for one issue - each spoon has some dings on the edge of the bowl. I've pictured the worst... Click for details

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering. It may be that the die for this mark was damaged and re-cut to eliminate all but the last name. It is also just... Click for details

Offered is a very fine and unusual pair of coin silver sugar tongs with one flat spatulate grip and one claw-type grip. Given this and the small size of the bow, these tongs may have had some sort of specialty purpose, such as reaching into a jar for small fruits, nuts or candies. These tongs are marked "COIN" on one arm (see pics) and are also engraved "Emma" on the bow. There is no maker' mark. This piece probably dates to about 1855-70. These tongs measure about 6 1/4 inches in length... Click for details

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears... Click for details

Offered is a very rare set of three early American coin silver tea spoons by Easton, Maryland silversmith Robert Kersey, about whom little has been published. Birdback teaspoons by Mr. Kersey with the same maker's mark that appears on these spoons are known, and Kersey's traditional working date is given as circa 1793. It is evident from the style of these spoons that he worked a while longer, as the squared shoulders were in use mostly from 1805-10, give or take a couple of years. These... Click for details

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably... Click for details
