Albert Coles

Produced circa 1860 by New York City's Albert Coles, this pickle fork and knife set are an idiomatic form for the period.

The knife measures 6 7/8" long while the fork measures 6 1/4". The combined weight is approximately 2.1 T. oz., but a substantial portion of this is the filling in the handles.

The pattern is a "Leaf" variant with other elements that resemble common motifs of the time. In this case, the look is quite similar to Polhamus' "Armor."

The blade of the knife is... Click for details

Applied Medallion Engine Turned Coin Pie Server

Dating from the 1860s, this pie server features two popular design features of the period. One is the applied classical head of the sort that gave this genre, "Medallion," its name. The second feature is the engine turned surface of the blade. This was a widely used decorative technique at the time, one because it was appealing, and likely two, because it showed off a specialized capacity of the manufacturers.

This measures 9" long and weighs 2.0 T. oz. The blade is 4 1/4 by 2 5/8" at... Click for details

Philadelphia Coin Silver Tablespoon by William Miller

A very good early American coin silver table spoon marked W.MILLER with a pseudo-hallmark of an eagle. This mark is sometimes given to a South Carolina silversmith by the name of William Miller, but the weight of evidence is that this mark is one of the marks used by Philadelphia silversmith William Miller, working circa 1810-40. So, likely not Southern coin silver. This spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only moderate wear from normal usage. It is... Click for details

A good small American coin silver teaspoon by an undocumented silversmith with maker's mark of O. Pierce (first name unknown), circa 1812-24. Although this mark has traditionally been associated with a Boston tradesman circa 1824, which would fit by style, there is also an Oliver Pierce, "jeweller" (or silversmith), listed in the New York city directory for 1812, at 189 William St. He is not listed in the 1813 directory. Although this piece is too late for that date, it is possible Oliver... Click for details
