Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmiths and jewelers Francis and Frederick Thibault, working in partnership circa 1807-09. This is a quite early example of the fully developed fiddle form that would take precedence in Philadelphia in the 1810-25 period; the feature that gives away its age is the slight squaring of the shoulders. This spoon has a legible maker's mark or retailer's mark and a worn but legible period engraved script monogram. The... Click for details

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Shoemaker, circa 1805-15. This piece has a good period engraved script monogram and a clear maker's mark. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. Condition is fair at best, with some dents to the bowl and a slight twist to the handle, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of a short-lived style in Philadelphia coin silver!

Attractive Philadelphia Coin Silver Creamer Circa 1825-40 - Maker?

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180114-02   Sold


click for details
Offered is a lovely American coin silver cream pitcher or creamer, circa 1825-40, and by style almost certainly made in Philadelphia. Philadelphia creamers and tea service pieces generally are among the most attractive and well-designed in the first half of the 19th Century.

This piece is decorated with milled bands that are very similar to one used by John or Samuel Warrington, and this band has only been observed on Philadelphia pieces to date, although it is certainly possible to find... Click for details

Offered is a interesting American coin silver table spoon by Constant Southworth (a rare mark by a little-known maker), and partly over-struck by Guy Loomis. Mr. Southworth was born in 1802 in Sheffield, Massachusetts, and married there in 1823. By 1830 he was working about 6 1/2 miles away in Great Barrington, continuing there until after 1850. He died in 1876. It is quite likely Constant Southworth knew Guy Loomis (1795-1874), who spent the first period in his career (circa 1816-37)... Click for details

C.A.W. Crosby Pure Coin Silver Master Butter Knife with Engraved Bird
Silver : Coin Silver : Serving Pieces

Old Friends  
3379f   $36.00


click for details
The scroll and leaf pattern on this mid 19th century, 7" long, .9 T. oz., master butter knife was produced by Farrington & Hunnewell, and in this instance retailed by "C.A.W. Crosby," both Boston firms.

A popular design in its period, examples of it are readily found. This piece stands apart, however, for the naturalistic leaf, flower, and bird motif engraved on the blade.

It is also inscribed "Viola" on the backside of the handle.

In good condition, it retains excellent form and... Click for details

Alvin "Cippendale Old" Reticulated Sterling Silver Jelly Cake Server
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3378f   $145.00

Charming items, and generally one of the harder to find (or not even available) serving pieces in most patterns, jelly cake servers are characterized by their long, narrow, trowel-like, blades.

This 8 5/8" long, approximately 1.6 T. oz., solid silver, example by Alvin is true to form, with a handsomely cut and engraved, slightly cupped, 4" long by 1 5/16" at the widest, pointed serving end.

The pattern is the company's turn of the 20th century "Cippendale Old."

Like the blade, the... Click for details

Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is... Click for details

It has a clear maker's mark and a large, somewhat simplified but period monogram, done by a novice engraver. Condition is good overall, with some bumps to the bowl but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable spoon!

Having a double Philadelphia provenance, this coin silver spoon is marked with James Watts' horse head emblem, and "George M. Bechtel" for the well-known retailer, 1850-60, later in partnership with George Eno.

It is a substantially sized piece at 9" long and weighing just under 1.5 T. oz.

Having a scalloped handle with an engraved surface, it reads as both characteristic for the period and for Philadelphia. The backside is plain save for the marks.

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith William Seal, born and perhaps trained in Virginia but known to be working alone and in partnership in Philadelphia between 1810 and 1822. He lived until 1853 but the style of his silver does not post-date about 1820. This piece is in good condition overall, with moderate wear and no dents, splits or repairs. It is nicely engraved with a period script monogram and has a legible maker's mark as well as... Click for details

Offered is a very good set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Amable Brasier (b. 1764 - d. 1842), working in that city between about 1795 and 1826. These three teaspoons are in a fin-less fiddle pattern and probably date to between 1800 and 1810. Each piece is expertly engraved 'EW' in period script. Each spoon also bears Brasier's maker's mark - one mark is rubbed but legible, and the other two are clear and well-struck. These spoons each measure... Click for details

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver teaspoons marked R.Wilson in script, for Robert Wilson, silversmith of New York and then Philadelphia, prior to his death in 1824. Mr. Wilson's sons, Robert and William, went on to great success after Robert Sr.'s death, establishing one of the most prolific silver manufacturing operations in the first half of the 19th Century. Robert Wilson Sr.'s work is typically marked with a maker's mark of RW in an oval, and is usually recognizably New... Click for details

20180107-01   $95.00

Offered is a nice pair of late 18th Century American coin silver sugar tongs marked only with a maker's mark of S.B - a mark given in Belden's "American Silversmiths" to Col. Standish Barry of Baltimore, MD. See Belden, page 49, mark d. for Barry. The strength of the attribution to Barry in Belden is based on stylistic similarities to known Belden work, and the relatively small number of potential craftsmen with the right initials working in the right time period. In any event, these sugar... Click for details

American? Silver Sugar Tongs Circa 1760-70 - Maker's Mark T.H Only
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180106-17   $125.00


click for details
Offered is a nice pair of 18th Century silver sugar tongs dating by style to the 1760s or early 1770s, bearing only a maker's mark of T.H in a rectangle. This maker's mark is fairly crude and doesn't look like a British mark, but the proportions of this pair of tongs look more British than American to me. So, are these tongs British, and dodge paying duty? Were they perhaps made provincially within the UK proper, far away from an assay office? Could they be from somewhere else in the Empire,...
