Circa 1858 Gorham
click for details
One of Gorham's earliest coin silver master salts, this is also an exceptionally fine example of the form.

Model number "18," as identified on the underside, along with the rare "left lion" version of Gorham's hallmark, the word "Coin," and the name of the retailer, "W.H. Talbot & Co.," Indianapolis. Interestingly, most sources cite Talbott for spelling of this firm, with the exception of Kovel's which cites Hiatt "The Silversmiths of Kentucky" as its source and uses a single "T."

On the surface, a typical piece of its period, this 6 3/16" long sugar spoon, marked "R. Fisher Jr. 331 Broadway. N.Y.," 1846-50, is actually a superior example.

The "French Thread" aka "Fiddle Thread" pattern stands alongside many other iterations of this popular design, and the shell bowl is a common form. The... Click for details

Portraying a young Dionysus, this motif carries through the entire Hotchkiss & Schreuder, Syracuse, NY, line of "Medallion" flatware.

Teaspoons are commonly found in this pattern, and other pieces somewhat readily so, but this large, 5 7/8" long, weighty 1t 1.6 T. oz., pair of tongs rarely surface.

The arms are mirror images of each other, with the portraiture of a young man set in profile, showing tumbling hair encircled by a garland of ivy. He has a wistful, forward-looking gaze,... Click for details

Fayette, Missouri or Lyons, Iowa Coin Silver Spoon - John H. Potts
click for details
Offered is a good example of early Midwestern coin silver, a teaspoon marked and perhaps made by clock and watch maker, jeweler, silversmith and dentist John H. Potts, working in Fayette, Missouri in the 1840s, and possibly in Lyons, Iowa by the 1850s. Potts was a working jeweler at least into the late 1860s, though I haven't fully researched him. He was in partnership with Henry W. Kring around 1841 in Fayette. An advertisement in the the "Boon's Lick Times" of Fayette, Missouri in 1844... Click for details

Coin Silver Teaspoon by Lucas Ryerson

Offered is a scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Lucas Ryerson (1771 - 1855). Ryerson was born and died in New Jersey, but his exact working dates and locations are something of a mystery. He is often described as having spent the majority of his working life in York, PA, moving back to New Jersey only around 1840 to continue working as a silversmith and clockmaker. However, this seems to be contradicted by the known events and listings in his life that took place largely... Click for details

Benjamin Lord, Vermont and Georgia, Long, Coin Silver Teaspoon

An unusual size at 6 1/2" long, this spoon is marked "B[enjamin]. Lord." It weighs just over .6 T. oz.

Sources indicate that Lord was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in 1770, was working in Rutland, Vermont, in 1797, and finally in Athens, Georgia, from 1831 until his death.

The style of this is early 19th century and likely dates from his Vermont years, but could trace to his Athens period.

It is very finely made, having a broad end with an extremely narrow shank. It and the... Click for details

Early Georgian Sterling Silver Onslow Pattern Stuffing Spoon c.1768-73

Offered is a fine and rare example of a period George III "Onslow" or "Scroll" pattern stuffing or platter spoon, sometimes also called a gravy spoon. This pattern is highly sought after, to the point that there are many later alterations out there. However, those spoons are not generally joined in the same way the period Onslow serving pieces were; a period spoon should have a scarf joint joining the cast scroll end to the stem, as this spoon does (see pictures). And, this spoon bears the... Click for details
