This spoon, which measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams, features one of the two known birdback designs used by Andrews. The die-struck bird is in very good shape,...

Offered is an exceptional early American coin silver dessert spoon or large teaspoon by important Philadelphia silversmith John Germon, working from about 1782 to 1825 or so. This piece measures 6 3/8 inches in length, and weighs about 20 grams, so it is quite a bit larger than typical tea or coffee spoons of the period - it dates to the 1782-95 timeframe by style. However, it could simply be a very large teaspoon. This piece has a finely executed period engraved script monogram, a... Click for details

Offered is an important find - an early American coin silver dessert spoon by John Beck, a silversmith working in Warrior's Mark, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania around 1824-30.

Gorham

This pattern is identified in the Gorham archives (housed at Brown University and cataloged by scholar Sam Hough) as "Old English." It is commonly referred to, however, as "Seal Top" after the round, flat disk that surmounts the end of the faceted shank, which in turn follows after a traditional "old English" form.

Almost never marked, it frequently goes unrecognized for what it is, namely coin silver produced by the above maker. Wood & Hughes made a nearly identical pattern with the same... Click for details
