Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering.

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons.

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably... Click for details
