Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20170206-01   $35.00

Offered is a very scarce example of the work of Delaware silversmith and clockmaker William F. Robinson (b. 1810 - d. 1849), who worked briefly in Philadelphia in the 1830s, and then spent the last decade of his life working in Wilmington. Silver bearing his mark is uncommon. This teaspoon bears a rubbed but legible maker's mark of W.F.ROBINSON in a rectangular punch, and has an engraved period script monogram. It measures about 6 3/16 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is... Click for details

Tracing to the mid 19th century, this pair of coin tongs are early production items from Cincinnati's premier silver and jewelry house, "Duhme & Co.," as indicated by the stamp on the inside of each arm.

They are large at 6 5/8" long, and heavy at 1.7 T. oz., and combine a variety of period design elements. They may be pickle tongs, for use with a tall caster.

The lower portions of the arms are blocky where they join with the substantially-scaled talon grips.

Offered is a good pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Virginia silversmith Jehu Williams, Sr., working first in Fredericksburg and then for the majority of his career in Lynchburg. For most of his time in Lynchburg, Williams was in partnership with John Victor - the partnership began around 1814 and lasted until Victor's death in 1845. Williams then worked alone from 1845 to 1856 and with his son from 1856 to Jehu Sr.'s death in 1859. The mark on these spoons is attributed by Hollan to... Click for details

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the rare maker's mark of silversmith and clockmaker William Drysdale (working in Philadelphia circa 1816-56), who despite his long working life left little of his work to posterity. The mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan, and I've not seen another example. This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. It features a clear maker's mark, a floret mark... Click for details

click for details
Offered is a very good pair of American coin silver table spoons by Philadelphia merchant and jeweler Theodore LeHuray, circa 1846-51. These tablespoons are rare survivors in that Theodore only went into the jewelry and silversmithing business for a few years, after his father (Nicholas LeHuray, Jr.) died in 1846. His attempt to carry on the family firm under his own name appears to have been unsuccessful, and he soon turned to other pursuits. The maker's mark of T LE HURAY in conjoined boxes is...

Old Friends  
2980f   $65.00

This pair of tongs are generously sized at 6 1/4" long and 1.2 T. oz. weight.

Each arm is stamped "F. [for Foster] Tinkham," born in Middleboro, Massachusetts, and documented working in New York City in 1840 as a jeweler and watchmaker.

The "Fiddle" shape of the arms on these correlates with that date.

They are in remarkably fine condition, and especially so for an item the better part of... Click for details

Coin Silver Long-Handled Condiment Spoon by D.OLIVER Possibly of Phila

20170121-10   $22.50


click for details
Offered is a nice American coin silver long-handled salt spoon or condiment spoon, circa 1810-30, marked D.OLIVER in a rectangular punch. This mark is attributed by Ensko to a Daniel Oliver of Philadelphia, circa 1805, but Hollan was unable to uncover any objective evidence supporting this attribution for her book "Philadelphia Silversmiths". Nonetheless, the mark on this spoon was included in the book for discussion purposes. I have not been able to locate any additional information on this... Click for details

Good 18th Century Style Coin Silver Spoon by Henry McKeen of Phila.

Offered is an interesting American coin silver teaspoon by Henry McKeen of Philadelphia, working as a watchmaker and silversmith in that town between about 1823 and 1861. This piece is in a late 18th or very early 19th Century style, and is not typical of McKeen's usual fiddle pattern spoons. It may have been made to match an earlier English or American set of spoons. In any event, it is the Old English style, and has a period script monogram consistent with spoons of that generation. The... Click for details

Offered is a Philadelphia coin silver dessert spoon by well-known silversmith George K. Childs, whose work is often seen, but almost exclusively with his G.K.CHILDS mark. Two other marks, G.CHILDS and the G.K.C. mark on this piece, are much, much rarer. I've observed only one example each of those two marks in the past fifteen years, and the mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. The maker's mark is clear and well-struck. This piece measures... Click for details

Offered is a lovely set of four early American coin silver teaspoons by the well-respected Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes. By style, this set probably dates to the 1790-1800 period, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon has a period engraved script monogram and a legible maker's mark. These spoons measure between about 5 3/4 inches and 6 inches in length, and the set weighs about 84 grams altogether. Condition overall is good, with each spoon having moderate surface...

Rare Southern Coin Silver Teaspoon Circa 1820, Marked PEABODY
Silver : Coin Silver : Southern

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20170120-01   $120.00


click for details
Offered is an unusual early American coin silver teaspoon circa 1820 bearing a crude mark of "PEABODY." in a rectangular punch. The maker's mark is slightly rubbed but still legible. This mark is attributed by William Voss (see the American Silversmiths website by googling "silversmiths" and "genealogy") to Nathaniel Prentice Peabody (1806-1883), working in Bennettsville, Marlboro, SC circa 1830-70. However, I think it possible due to the style of this piece that this is the work and mark of... Click for details

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of James T. Scott & Co., working in Wheeling, Virginia and later West Virginia circa the mid 1850s through the late 1860s. Mr. Scott and his partners seem to have mostly retailed silver, though this bears only his maker's or retailer's mark, and no manufacturer's marks. In my other listings on the site, I have several other spoons, with different monograms but also found around Wheeling, with James T. Scott & Co.'s mark. This... Click for details
