Good Fluted Coin Silver Sauce Ladle marked by John Rich

Offered is a good American coin silver cream or other serving ladle, made circa 1857-64 by Hotchkiss & Schreuder of Syracuse, NY (apparently this version of their marks was in use in that period, though the firm continued to 1871 as a partnership). This piece also bears a retailer's mark of JOHN RICH. I am not familiar with this retailer. This ladle measures about 6 1/8 inches in length, and weighs about 22 grams. This piece bears a good period engraved script name of Crosby for the original... Click for details

Fine Early Ohio Tablespoon by A. G. Peck of Ashtabula, Circa 1820-30
click for details
Offered is a very good and large early American coin silver table spoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and a maker's mark of A.G.PECK. Little is known about the silversmith behind this mark, although an A. G. Peck was listed by Knittle as working in Ashtabula, Ohio circa 1823. Such a date would certainly fit this piece, which could have been made in Ohio based on style. It should also be noted that an Asahel G. Peck, silversmith and jeweler, born about 1820 and died around 1904,... Click for details

Charming Engraved Mid 19th Century Coin Silver Sugar Spoon

Measuring 6 3/16" long and weighing just short of .7 T. oz., this sugar spoon likely dates from the 1860s.

It traces to the Boston area, being stamped "Harry Raynes" for the Lowell, Massachusetts retailer. It is also marked "Coin," but is absent a manufacturer's mark. Undoubtedly, though, it was produced in New England.

The handle has a plain, rounded end, a tipt backside, and is engraved in a delicate, stylized flower or grass motif that suggests early Aesthetic influences.

Scarce Gorham & Co.

Dating somewhere between the early 1850s and mid 1860s, this 7" long, weighty at just over 1.5 T. oz., fork is stamped "Gorham & Co." and "Coin." It likely was a tea or dessert fork, although it could have been a lunch place piece.

The markings are not readily found, and while a standard motif for the period, the "French Thread" pattern was not one that Gorham seemed to produce in significant quantity, so this is a doubly unusual piece.

It is engraved "A.L. Fiske." in very fine script... Click for details
