Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker John Reynolds (1770-1832), working from the 1790s through 1808 and probably much later.

The two spoons here were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" despite the rubbing of the marks, due to the extreme rarity of the mark of this partnership. The spoons are each also marked with the manufacturer's mark of Thomas Harper (working circa 1811-17), who also made silver for (Jean)... Click for details

Exotic Shiebler Sterling Silver Wine Taster or Nut Spoon
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
2753f   $250.00


click for details
George Shiebler's work is nothing if not imaginative and it often inspires speculation about design sources and function.

That is the case with this 5 7/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., presumably wine taster, or possibly nut spoon, with a likely late 19th century date.

It has an oversized, seemingly carved, roughly rectangular, 3 1/2" by 2 1/4", handle.

The design is enigmatic, and could trace to multiple origins.

Overall the imagery suggests it found inspiration in Aztec themes.... Click for details
