Tilden-Thurber
click for details
Given its modest size at 8 1/4" tall, and with a capacity of 16 ounces, this piece could variously be identified as a gentleman's, breakfast, or tete-a-tete coffee pot.

It is English "Georgian" in style, with a bulbous lower body and slender neck, lending it an overall lofty look. It stands on three modified paw feet, and has a lengthy curved spout that is attached at the base and rises to the height of the rim.

The double cee scroll handle is hollow and retains its original insulators.... Click for details

Condition overall is good, with modest... Click for details

Southern Coin Silver Sauce Ladle by James Meredith, Winchester, VA

Offered is a fine early Winchester, Virginia coin silver ladle (probably a sauce ladle but perhaps a cream ladle) by by well-known Virginia silversmith James Meredith, who spent the majority (1812-60) of his career working in or around Winchester, VA. Judging by style, this piece should date to about 1825-35, but could be somewhat earlier or later. While spoons by Meredith are not uncommon, pieces like this ladle are much harder to find. As one can imagine, only the most successful citizens... Click for details

After 1846, Albert continued to work as a silversmith, but moved his shop to Bangor and worked there until about 1880. This piece was almost certainly made during Albert's Portland years, and the mark of TITCOMB in a serrated punch could have been used by him... Click for details

Offered is a scarce York, Pennsylvania coin silver teaspoon by John Brenise (1793 - 1846), who would have been working independently by about 1815 but for whom records are spotty. He is generally described as working in the 1830s and later, but this spoon is clearly earlier in style (probably circa 1825), and there is no reason to suppose he would have had a decade or more hiatus in his silversmithing and clockmaking career after his apprenticeship was completed. This teaspoon has an engraved... Click for details

Offered is a good set of four Ohio coin silver spoons by little-known Cincinnati silversmith and jeweler Abraham Palmer, working circa 1833 into the 1860s. Palmer apprenticed in the house of Samuel Kirk & Co. in Baltimore, and commenced business on his own in Ohio around 1833.

Offered is a scarce example of marked Dayton, Ohio coin silver by a short-lived partnership of jeweler Powell (or Paul) A.
