Distinctions among plain coin silver pieces such as this are all about subtlety. For example, the handle on this is relatively long, which would have been utilitarian for sitting in a deep... Click for details

Offered is an important early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Shields (working circa 1765-94).

This spoon's decoration, like many of my Philadelphia spoons, was featured in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (see page 259). This spoon is engraved... Click for details
