Offered is a rare and fine early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Fincastle and Liberty, Virginia silversmith Charles Aunspaugh (b. 1799, d. 1887).

Little is known about Aunspaugh's life, and only a few teaspoons are known as evidence of his work. This spoon probably dates to... Click for details

This pair of coin silver tongs measure a lengthy 6 1/4" long and weigh nearly 1.7 T. oz.

Large Gorham

At 5 3/4" long, this pair of tongs are exceptionally long and commensurately heavy at nearly 1.7 T. oz. Whether intended to be used for ice, they certainly could serve that purpose.

The pattern is Gorham's "Cottage," which according to company archives, was in active production for over thirty years, beginning in 1861. As this pair are stamped "Sterling," they date post 1868 when Gorham adopted the sterling standard. Earlier examples of "Cottage" were made in coin silver. This is also... Click for details

Born in 1825 in Weymouth, Massachusetts, on Boston's South Shore, Asa Fairbanks Trufant is listed working as a merchant in nearby Abington, dying in 1879.

Given the "Fiddle Tipt" pattern on this 7 1/4" long, just over .8 T. oz., dessert or place spoon, it would have dated from his earliest working years.

It is monogrammed "JT to EJT" in fancy script lettering and is in exceptionally fine condition. It remains well-formed and retains a perfectly shaped bowl that is free of dents, burrs,... Click for details

Very Rare Philadelphia Coffin-End Teaspoon, circa 1806

Offered is an extremely scarce example of a coffin-end spoon definitively from Philadelphia; in fact, this is the only such example I've ever observed. Coffin-end spoons from New York and New England are quite readily found, but the style never took hold in Philadelphia, and is virtually never seen. This spoon was made by John W. Gethen and retailed by Allen Armstrong, who was working circa 1806-16. This piece features good clear marks and a period engraved script monogram. Condition is... Click for details

Rare Philadelphia Spoon by Browne & Seal Ca. 1810-13

Offered is a rare example of early American coin silver bearing the mark of the short-lived Philadelphia partnership of silversmiths Liberty Browne and William Seal, working as Browne & Seal circa 1810-13. This spoon bears their banner maker's mark, although in this case my suspicion is that the spoon was actually made by Samuel Williamson and supplied to Browne & Seal to retail. This spoon has unusual proportions and an even more unusual drop; both features match known spoons by Williamson... Click for details
