Very Rare Carlisle, PA Coin Silver Spoon by Bernard Hendel, Ca. 1825
Silver : Coin Silver

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20170817-01   $135.00


click for details
Offered is a lovely and quite rare example of the silverwork of Bernard Hendel, better known as a clockmaker and the least known of the Hendel brothers. Bernard worked from about 1811 to 1844, and a number of clocks bearing his name alone or in conjunction with his brother Jacob are known. However, there is almost no silver bearing his name. This is only the second spoon I've come across by Bernard Hendel, and it is a good one. By style it should date to about 1825, but could be a little... Click for details

Brown & Shaver, Utica, NY, Coin Silver Sauce or Cream Ladle
Silver : Coin Silver : Serving Pieces

Old Friends

Sources indicate that Charles C. Shaver and Henry S. Brown, the makers of this 6 1/2" long, 1.0 T. oz., ladle formed their partnership in 1856.

The partnership only lasted two years as Shaver sold out to Brown in 1858, but whose interest he bought back in 1863. All this history indicates the mark on this piece is rarer than most associated with the Shaver name.

The pattern is one described as "ornamental" in Rainwater's "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers." The design... Click for details

E. Borhek, Philadelphia, "Reverse Tipt" Coin Silver Teaspoon x 2
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3195f   $20.00


click for details
In her benchmark work on Philadelphia silversmiths, Catherine Hollan identifies "E. Borhek," the mark on this 5 11/16" long, .5 T. oz., as Edward, 1806-87. She notes that 1835-37, he was known as "Borhex."

In his later years he operated as an optician and spectacle maker, although as this spoon attests, silver was his stock in trade in earlier years.

This is a well-crafted piece, which a broad handle end with a subtly tipt backside, a line drop on the heel, and high, angular shoulders... Click for details

Cornelia Anna Ritch (1847-1916) may well have been born with a silver spoon in her mouth. We know for sure that at the age of six, she had a fine looking coin silver cup in her hand.

Her great great great grandfather, Henry Ritch, was among the original settlers of Greenwich, CT, having received a grant of three acres there on May 19th, 1686. Her family has always been among the town’s leading citizens, comprising notable attorneys, quarry owners, and the first successful oyster... Click for details

Fine Early Coin Silver Sugar Tongs Ca.1805-10 Marked Gordon In Italics

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering. It may be that the die for this mark was damaged and re-cut to eliminate all but the last name. It is also just... Click for details

Early Philadelphia Coin Silver Sugar Tongs by Joseph Anthony of Phila.
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20170714-02   $67.50

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears... Click for details

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably... Click for details
