Offered is a scarce American coin silver youth set (or at least the fork and knife) in the fiddlethread pattern by Marquand & Co., led by Frederick Marquand (active in Savannah, Georgia and New York City). This set would have been made in New York City between 1833 and 1838. As such, they can't be considered Southern coin silver. The hollow handles and good condition of the pieces are unusual features for this date, and the knife bears a well-struck maker's mark for this firm. The fork has... Click for details

Offered is a good American coin silver (southern coin silver) dessert spoon by William P. Poindexter, silversmith of Lexington, Kentucky. Poindexter was a fairly prolific Kentucky silversmith, but it's nice to find a dessert spoon, as they are quite a bit less common than either tea or table spoons. This piece has a slightly rubbed but still very legible maker's mark and is also engraved "Willie" in period script. It measures about 7 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 30 grams. Condition...

Offered is a rare example of the maker's mark and product offered by Lewis Veron & Co., a fancy-goods store famous for receiving various contracts to decorate the White House. Despite a single-minded focus on Philadelphia silver for about a decade, I never came across a piece bearing the maker's mark (really a retailer's mark) of Veron, whose silver seems to have been supplied by either the Thibaults, the Fletchers, Thomas Whartenby or some combination thereof. It is obvious from this piece... Click for details

Offered is a very good early American coin silver table spoon by the very short-lived and little-documented partnership of McCollin & Hemphill, who appeared in only one city directory, that for 1834.

Until this spoon was found, no mark had been documented for this partnership; perhaps a new edition of "Philadelphia Silversmiths" will include this mark. This spoon is nicely made with a good period engraved script monogram... Click for details
