York, PA Coin Silver Teaspoon by John Brenise Ca. 1825
click for details
Offered is a scarce York, Pennsylvania coin silver teaspoon by John Brenise (1793 - 1846), who would have been working independently by about 1815 but for whom records are spotty. He is generally described as working in the 1830s and later, but this spoon is clearly earlier in style (probably circa 1825), and there is no reason to suppose he would have had a decade or more hiatus in his silversmithing and clockmaking career after his apprenticeship was completed. This teaspoon has an engraved... Click for details

Offered is a good set of four Ohio coin silver spoons by little-known Cincinnati silversmith and jeweler Abraham Palmer, working circa 1833 into the 1860s.

Silver bearing one of his maker's... Click for details

Offered is a scarce example of marked Dayton, Ohio coin silver by a short-lived partnership of jeweler Powell (or Paul) A.

This spoon is engraved with a date in slightly later script, and has a good legible maker's mark. It measures about 6 3/16 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is only fair, as it has numerous small dings and scratches, but there are no... Click for details

He eventually relocated, first to Norwich, and then to New York City, and was listed as a merchant there in 1850. By style and by the fact that he was working alone... Click for details

Gravelle. By style these tongs could have been made in either locale. They measure about 6 inches in length and weigh about 30 grams. Condition is fair,... Click for details

He later entered into other professional pursuits. Kucher's work is often distinctive in style, as can be seen with the interestingly proportioned fiddle handle and the keyhole-style drop. The maker's mark of IK in a rectangle is well-struck and legible, and the spoon also has an engraved... Click for details
