Very Scarce Set of Six Carlisle, PA Teaspoons by George Hendel
click for details
Offered is a very scarce set of six early American coin silver teaspoons by Carlisle silversmith George Hendel. While individual spoons can be found (see my other listings for one such example), sets of six just don't surface. This set dates to about 1805-15 by style. These spoons average about 5 15/16 inches in length and weigh about 92 grams altogether. Condition on these spoons is very good, with little wear, no dents aside from a few small dimples, and no splits or repairs. George Hendel's... Click for details

Philadelphia Coin Silver Dessert Spoon with Rare Unpublished Mark
click for details
Offered is a lovely American coin silver dessert spoon made by Philadelphia silversmiths Jehu and William L. Ward, dating to circa 1837-50. The unusual aspect of this piece is the maker's mark - an oval mark similar to others used in by other makers in Philadelphia, but very rare for the Wards. The mark is mentioned by Hollan in "Philadelphia Silversmiths", but not one example had been found, until now. This piece measures about 7 3/8 inches in length and weighs a solid 32 grams, or about one... Click for details

Delaware Coin Silver Condiment Spoon by Hannah Robinson

Offered is a good American coin silver condiment spoon (salt, mustard, or something else) by Hannah Robinson of Wilmington, DE (1803-78). See page 250 of the book "Delaware Silver" for a very similar piece identified as a salt spoon, and note several pieces with the same mark (the "H" is worn off this spoon, but the letters in "ROBINSON" match the ones in the book minutely). This spoon is in very good condition overall, with a good period engraved script monogram and a worn but legible maker's... 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

Patent 1855

This 7 1/2" long, heavy, 1.8 T. oz., master butter knife features two grape and leaf clusters set against a ground that is very similar to "Le Cordon."

"Le Cordon" is a pattern identified with Whiting, although it was not originated by that firm. One online source also assigns this "Grape" design to Whiting, but in fact and again, it traces to another source, having originally been patented by Michael Gibney of New York City. An unpublished reference notes that this pattern frequently... Click for details

The Baltimore Museum of Art reference volume on Maryland Silver lists William Brown working in Baltimore ca. 1810-52.

This pair of 6 1/8" long, just over 1.5 T. oz., coin silver tongs carry his mark, "W. Brown," along with the rather unusual identifier "Balt." stamped on the inside of each arm.

The pattern is a "French Thread" aka "Fiddle Thread." There is a feathered script "JMD" inscribed on the arch. The grips are scallop shell form.

They are in excellent condition. There are... 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

Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddlethread pattern by Baldwin Gardiner, working circa 1827-48 in New York City. Although this spoon is fairly nondescript in style and has a worn and scratched surface, it also happens to have an interesting armorial and motto - used by a major branch of the Morris clan of Wales, specifically the descendants of Lewis Morris, Lord of the Manor of Morrisania, New York, who arrived in New York in 1674 and was a progenitor of a large branch of...

Offered is a fine American coin silver christening or dessert fork bearing the mark of Columbus, Georgia jeweler and silversmith Samuel B. Purple, working alone in Columbus from about 1845-57. This fork is a pattern example and probably dates to the latter part of Purple's career; it is assumed Purple retailed rather than manufactured this piece. This fork has a good clear mark as well as a well-executed period script monogram. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about... Click for details

Offered is a fine early American coin silver table spoon by the partnership of Philadelphia silversmiths Jacob Stockman and Henry J. Pepper, who advertised as gold and silver thimble manufacturers during their brief (1828-31) partnership. While the partnership had a lot of output, and its work is still commonly seen, the mark on this spoon is unrecorded and seems to be extremely rare. In almost two decades of involvement with American coin silver, it is the only example I've seen, and my focus... Click for details

Offered is a fine early American coin silver dessert spoon from rare Crawford County, PA (Meadville) silversmith and watchmaker Isaac Myers. In addition to this spoon, I have separately listed a similar dessert spoon from the same family, but with a different monogram.

It appears to date to the earlier part of Myers' career, but could have been made anywhere from 1825-50. Some spoons made by... Click for details

Unusually large at 8 3/8" long, and heavy at nearly 1.7 T. oz., this coin silver master butter knife traces to Robert and William Wilson of Philadelphia, whose mark appears on the backside of the blade.

Dating from c. 1860, it reflects the design sensibilities of the period.

The blade and handle are joined at a right angle by a stout extension of the blade that attaches to a twisted stem. The shaped, flat handle is extensively and finely engraved and finished with a fancy, feathered... Click for details

Offered is a rare example of early American coin silver flatware made in an English style, with proportions, weight and engraving appropriate to that taste. Crested American coin silver after the Revolution is for obvious reasons fairly uncommon; spoons made to match English sets are even more scarce. Another distinguishing feature of these spoons, in addition to the pattern and the engraved armorials of a dove of peace, is the unpublished mark for George K. Childs of Philadelphia. Hollan's...
