A short-lived company, the "Northwestern Silver Ware Manufacturing Company" was "founded [in Chicago] shortly after the Civil War" and never rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1871, according to Dorothy Rainwater's Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers.

Rainwater identifies the company as "manufacturers of silverplated wares," but as this 6 1/2" long, .8 T. oz., pickle fork marked "900/1000" for coin confirms, the company also offered solid silver items as well.

It is stamped on the backside of the handle "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for the renowned Philadelphia jeweler and retailer of fine goods, and "Pure Coin," suggesting this piece may have been sourced from a New England manufacturer, given this term was typically used in that area.

Acorn-Grip Sugar Tongs by R. Wilson (in Script), Circa 1805

20200819-02   Sold


click for details
Offered is a very beat-up and repaired pair of early 19th Century American coin silver sugar tongs with acorn-style grips, marked R.Wilson in script on one arm. I believe this is one of the early marks used by noted silversmith Robert Wilson in his New York period (circa 1800-10), before he moved to Philadelphia and joined William Wilson in partnership. But, perhaps there was another R.Wilson working around this time. In any event, this piece has a rubbed but still legible maker's mark (see... Click for details

Haddock, Lincoln & Foss "Olive" Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

4323f   $52.00

A popular mid 19th century pattern, "Olive" was produced by numerous manufacturers, and was especially well-received in Boston.

Indeed, this 7" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., preserve spoon is marked "Haddock, Lincoln & Foss," which was a Boston firm with dates 1857-68. It is also stamped "925" in an oval for sterling. Makers were transitioning from coin to sterling about the time this was made, so this represents a forward looking piece for its period.

Offered is a nice example of a coin silver spoon evidently made as a toy or for the use of a small child, measuring 4 3/16 inches in length and weighing about 7 grams. Ordinarily I might assume this is simply a spoon form (as opposed to ladle form) master salt spoon, but with the engraving of the name "Bertie" (a diminutive of "Robert"), I have to assume it was made for a child. This piece has no maker's mark, but by style it should date to the 1825-50 period. It has some wear and small... Click for details

Mr. Etter's family were Loyalists, and evacuated to Canada when the Revolution came. Etter's silver is not easy to find.
