Offered is a rare set of six American coin silver spoons by celebrated silversmith John Germon of Philadelphia, working circa 1785-1825, if I recall correctly. Available biographical information on Germon is in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths."

These teaspoons by style should date to about the 1805-15 timeframe, and each bears Germon's maker's mark of his... Click for details

Rare Mark, P.L. Taylor & Jones,

Multiple sources list silversmith and merchant Pardon L. Taylor, as born in Providence, Rhode Island, 1824, and working in Brooklyn, New York, where he died in 1860.

No reference, however, documents the "P.L. Taylor & Jones" mark on this large, 8 7/8" long, significant weight, 1.6 T. oz., "Tipt End" table or serving spoon, suggesting it was, like the man himself, a short-lived enterprise, and thus rare.

The piece is a superb example of what it is. Carefully honed and crafted, it... Click for details
