Good Early Detroit, Michigan Coin Silver Tablespoon, Charles Piquette
click for details
Offered is a good American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark of Charles Piquette, silversmith and gold pen manufacturer of Detroit. Charles is one of two sons of Jean-Baptiste Piquette, silversmith of Montreal, who came to Detroit circa 1803. Charles and his brother, John B. Piquette, were trained by their father in the silversmith's profession, but it is more likely this spoon was manufactured by someone else and retailed by Charles Piquette, as his focus seems to have been on the...

This piece was very likely owned by either Sampson Tams or Williams Tams - these men were brothers, and were some of the wealthiest men in the city in the 1830s and 1840s. The source of...

Offered is a very scarce set of three early American coin silver dessert spoons by little-known Washington, Pennsylvania silversmith Jacob Schaffer (1756-1852). Mr. Schaffer's biographical information appears following a description of the spoons.

They measure about 6 5/8 inches in length, on average, and they weigh about 58 grams altogether. Although under 7 inches in length,... Click for details

Rare Southern Coin Silver Spoon by Jacob Bear of Lexington, Virginia

Offered is an early American coin silver teaspoon by Jacob Bear, working in Lexington, VA circa 1823-60 and then located in Rockingham, VA in 1861.

This spoon measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. The spoon probably dates to the 1820s or 1830s. Condition is fair at best, as the original monogram has been erased and a later... Click for details

Unusual Coin Silver Teaspoon by Joseph Shoemaker of Philadelphia
click for details
Offered is an unusual example of an early American coin silver spoon made in the workshop of Joseph Shoemaker but also struck with a large mark of a "T" - the mark could be a journeyman's, but is so large and placed in such a way as to undercut Shoemaker's maker's mark. As such it is unlikely the mark was on the spoon when it was first marked by Shoemaker. It is possible the spoon was resold by someone else, but the most likely explanation is that it was an inventory stamp within the family. ... Click for details

Rare Coin Silver Teaspoon by Charles & George Fletcher of Phila.

Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of Charles and George Fletcher of Philadelphia, brothers to the famous silversmith and proprietor Thomas Fletcher, whose firm Fletcher and Gardiner would set the standard for monumental silver for a time in Philadelphia. Charles and George united in partnership in July 1818, and dissolved their union by early 1824. Their run in business together appears to have been rather unsuccessful; aside from this teaspoon, I have observed... Click for details
