Two Benedict, New York,
click for details
These two, coin silver, spoons are matching in all ways save for their sizes. One is an 8 9/16" long, 2.1 T. oz. tablespoon, and the other a 7", 1.0 T. oz. place or dessert spoon.

They are marked "Benedict," for Samuel Ward Benedict, a well-known New York City jeweler and watchmaker, working 1818-60.

In his work on marks, John McGrew attributes the "bust, lion, C" pseudo hallmark that also appears on them to the "Gilbert-Cunningham/Cooper Complex."

They are a "Prince Albert" pattern... Click for details

J.E. Caldwell Bright Cut Coin Silver Hot Cake Lifter

Dating circa 1865, this server measures 8 1/8" long and weighs 1.9 T. oz. It is a hotcake, aka pancake, lifter, which is a form characterized by a flat, generally round, functional end that is well adapted to its purpose.

This is an especially fine example in mint condition. It is Philadelphia in origin, marked "J.E. Caldwell & Co.," who would have retailed it. It is of a style and quality that suggests George Sharp or Peter Krider as a likely manufacturer.

The handle has a rounded,... Click for details

L. Le Gross
click for details
Measuring 7 3/8" long and weighing just over .9 T. oz., this c. 1835 "Tipt" coin silver dessert or place spoon is marked "L. Le Gross."

Identification for this, presumably, retailer is elusive, but other pieces with the same name bear the pseudo hallmark of silversmith Richard Huntington of Utica, so this likely places Le Gross in central New York.

It is a well-formed item, with a broad end, and high, rounded shoulders off the somewhat elongated, pointed tip bowl.

Offered is a fine early fiddle pattern American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark B.LORD, for Benjamin Lord, a silversmith who began his career in Rutland, Vermont and moved to Athens, Georgia by 1831. Benjamin died in Athens in 1843. His two sons, Benjamin Buel Lord and Ebenezer Lord, also worked in Athens, and in theory his son Benjamin B. Lord could have marked this spoon. By style, this spoon could date from the 1820s or 1830s, so it is unknown whether or not it was made in... Click for details

Exotic Shiebler Sterling Silver Wine Taster or Nut Spoon
click for details
George Shiebler's work is nothing if not imaginative and it often inspires speculation about design sources and function.

That is the case with this 5 7/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., presumably wine taster, or possibly nut spoon, with a likely late 19th century date.

It has an oversized, seemingly carved, roughly rectangular, 3 1/2" by 2 1/4", handle.

The design is enigmatic, and could trace to multiple origins.

Overall the imagery suggests it found inspiration in Aztec themes.... Click for details

One of Philadelphia's most prominent 19th century silversmiths, Peter L. Krider operated as sole manufacturer and in several partnerships over his career.

This mug is stamped with the "crossed K & B" symbol for the "Krider & Biddle" partnership, along with the model number "433."

There has been some difference of opinion about the exact dates of this pairing. The most recent, and likely most reliable, scholarship on Philadelphia silversmiths has been offered in a volume by Catherine... Click for details

Elegant on several counts, this 7" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon traces to Philadelphia. It is stamped "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for that City's carriage trade firm, but was likely made by one of several major local manufacturers.

Its features bespeak its origins, and quite impressively so. It has a twisted stem in the central portion of the handle, suggesting a date from the mid 1860s when this detail was popular.

The handle end is broad, with a slightly tipt... Click for details
