Offered is a quite lovely and very well made set of four early American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith William Gethen, who like his brother John W. Gethen both made silver for others to retail, and retailed his own work. Unlike John, however, William was not lucky enough to enjoy a long life, and worked only about ten years, from his first mention around 1797 to his untimely death in 1808. These spoons are extremely well made and are in excellent condition, with no dents,... Click for details

Fine Pair of Lancaster Coin Silver Teaspoons by John Shaffner c1825-50
click for details
Offered is a good pair of American coin silver teaspoons bearing the mark of John Shaffner of Lancaster, about whom little appears to be known. Shaffner seems to have been more a retailer or merchant than a working silversmith, but must have been successful as there are a fair number of extant spoons and other pieces bearing his mark. He appears to have been in business between about 1825-30 and 1850 or so. This pair of teaspoons has his mark, and each is engraved with a period monogram of "BH".... Click for details

Offered is a fine and scarce set of four American coin silver teaspoons in the fiddle and shell pattern by Philadelphia silversmith Peter Thomson, working there circa 1826-58. Despite his long career, Thomson's silver is very uncommon. The mark on these spoons was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan, and I've not seen another example. Each spoon has a good legible maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram of "MWY". These pieces measure... Click for details

Offered is a rare example of the work of John Kinnicutt Pitman (1779 - 1819), Providence, Rhode Island silversmith and son of famous silversmith Saunders Pitman. This piece is marked PITMAN in large roman capitals in a rectangular punch; it is thought that this is one of the marks used both by the father and the son. However, the coffin-end form makes it more likely that John made this piece, as Saunders died in 1804 and this piece was probably made between about that date and 1810. This... Click for details

Offered is a very good piece from New Orleans, a rare example of a coffee spoon bearing the retailer's mark of A. B. Griswold & Co., and manufactured by Wood & Hughes.
