Offered is a lovely and early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon circa 1775-85, by maker "JA"; I've not solved the maker of this mark (if you can, I will send you a coin silver teaspoon!), but a Hanoverian pattern teaspoon circa 1760-70 with the same mark is shown in the Winterthur online collection. In addition to the maker's mark, this piece is decorated with a period engraved block initial monogram of "O*F". One can dream up an instant ancestor for the original owner of this spoon,...

These tablespoons are decorated with period engraved script monograms, the placement and style of which closely relates to the engraving on other Thomas Arnold spoons of the period.

By style, this piece could have been made in either state, but is more likely to be on the early side and therefore perhaps made in Morgantown. The unusually shaped neck is similar to...

Offered is an interesting, fairly late American silver master salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes (1758-1820). This piece has a period engraved script monogram and is a standard circa 1810-20 fiddle pattern piece. The interesting part about this salt spoon is that it exhibits the remains of die-struck decoration to the bowl - something not often seen with salt spoons. This may have been a bird or some other device - one would have to take a look at what remains visible... Click for details

Lincoln & Foss, Boston, Large Sterling Silver (Chicken) Tongs
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3406f   $265.00


click for details
Measuring 7 7/8" long and weighing just over 3.2 T. oz., this pair of tongs are large enough in relative terms to be described as immense. They may be an old implement that is sometimes referenced as (fried) chicken tongs.

They are stamped "Lincoln & Foss" for the mid 19th century (1848-57) Boston firm, and quite unusual for the date, "Sterling," rather than the expected coin silver.

The scroll pattern that appears on each leg is one that was probably produced by Farrington & Hunnewell,... Click for details

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2298   Sold

length 7 inches, weight 1.30 Troy ounces, monogrammed "T" (?) reverse, very slight wear to engraving but fine overall condition.

Krider's early work was sometimes whimsical (note the asparagus stalks in enlargement number four). His later output tended more toward the elaborate (see our listing 2242). But his quality was consistently good, as one may see here in the engraved decoration.

Though asparagus tongs had been common since the early 1800's, serving forks from this era... Click for details
