Offered is a nice example of American coin silver bearing the maker's mark of little-known Baltimore silversmith Charles H. Pepar, who was advertising in the Baltimore Sun in the 1840s. The book "Silver in Maryland" describes his birthdate as about 1812, and notes he was working at least from 1845. The fineness mark of 10.15 on these would not have been seen after about 1860, and the style of these spoons is consistent with the 1840-60 period. Each spoon has a legible maker's mark and a period... Click for details

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of James T. Scott & Co., working in Wheeling, Virginia and later West Virginia circa the mid 1850s through the late 1860s.

Offered is a good example of the maker's mark and work of Philip Louis Reese (1839-1897), a little-known jeweler and silversmith who trained in Cincinnati, Ohio and then commenced in business in Mt.

He apparently made and/or sold flatware and julep cups, among other items, though his mark seems to be quite rare - Boultinghouse's "Kentucky Silversmiths" could not find a single...
