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

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

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 while both of them were working for Maynard & Taylor, and whose silver portion of that business they bought out to establish their own firm in 1856.
