Philadelphia Dessert Spoon by George K. Childs with Rare
click for details
Offered is a Philadelphia coin silver dessert spoon by well-known silversmith George K. Childs, whose work is often seen, but almost exclusively with his G.K.CHILDS mark. Two other marks, G.CHILDS and the G.K.C. mark on this piece, are much, much rarer. I've observed only one example each of those two marks in the past fifteen years, and the mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. The maker's mark is clear and well-struck. This piece measures... Click for details

Rare Sheaf of Wheat Horseradish or Mustard Spoon by R. & W. Wilson

This piece has a good period engraved script monogram of MAMcC and a clear maker's mark. The die-struck sheaf of wheat decoration is still relatively crisp and the piece overall shows only modest wear from normal use. Condition is very good, with no dents, splits or... Click for details

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Benjamin Robinson, working in that town circa 1818-44.

Condition is pretty poor, with quite a bit of bowl wear and moderate overall surface wear. Nonetheless worth saving from the scrappers, in my view. All in all a nice example of Robinson's mark with... Click for details

Offered is an unusual early American coin silver teaspoon circa 1820 bearing a crude mark of "PEABODY." in a rectangular punch. The maker's mark is slightly rubbed but still legible. This mark is attributed by William Voss (see the American Silversmiths website by googling "silversmiths" and "genealogy") to Nathaniel Prentice Peabody (1806-1883), working in Bennettsville, Marlboro, SC circa 1830-70. However, I think it possible due to the style of this piece that this is the work and mark of... Click for details
