Coin Silver Cream Ladle by Baldwin & Jones Circa 1816-20

Offered is a good American coin silver cream ladle by the Boston partnership of Jabez Baldwin and John Belknap Jones, working circa 1816-20. This piece bears a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a period script engraved monogram. It measures a bit under six inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. Condition is good considering this piece is almost 200 years old; there are a few small dings and bumps, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice useful piece of early Boston coin silver!

Coin Silver Teaspoon - Clinton County Agricultural Society Fair Prize

Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon by Robert and William Wilson of Philadelphia, circa 1825-45, stamped CLINTON CO. to denote that this piece was used as a prize at an agricultural fair in Clinton County (not sure which state). I've had two other pieces so stamped, and eBay recently had a beaker with the same stamp; all were made by R. & W. Wilson. It appears a wide variety of silver was given away at this county fair, wherever it was held. This teaspoon also bears a period engraved... Click for details

Rare Philadelphia Teaspoon with Both of J. W. Gethen's Marks Ca. 1815
click for details
Offered is a very rare example (used in Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths") of a spoon bearing both of John W. Gethen's known marks. By style, this spoon should date to the 1810-15 range given its square shoulders, but it could be a bit earlier or later. Although Gethen lived until 1846, he seems to have made little silver after about 1819, and may have turned to other types of manufacturing. Most if not all of his IWG-marked spoons are stylistically associated with the first two... Click for details

Early Coin Silver Tablespoon by John Frederick Ernst of Cooperstown NY

Offered is a large early American coin silver tablespoon marked ERNST in a rectangular punch; the monogram and style of the punch indicate this piece is definitely American, as does the style of the spoon itself. John Frederick Ernst, Jr. worked in Cooperstown from circa 1808 to his death in 1830, and though the Darling Foundation's book on New York silversmiths does not have a picture of a mark for him, he is the best fit to have made this piece by style. However, if you have a better... Click for details

These three spoons almost certainly date to Savage's Raleigh period - the style is right, and the proportions and shoulder... Click for details
