Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver tablespoons by noted New York maker Albert Coles, in a pattern that may have been proprietary to his firm. I've seen teaspoons in this pattern over the years, and occasionally another form, but these are the first tablespoons. Each bears a maker's mark of A.COLES for Albert Coles (which indicates he both made and probably retailed these, as otherwise he would have had his manufacturing marks on these), and each also has an engraved period script...

length 6 inches, total Troy weight 9.1 ounces, marked and monogrammed as shown in enlargements, excellent condition. We also have dinner forks available, length 7 7/8 inches, weight 1.75 oz each.

Offered is a lovely old American coin silver table spoon by a maker who doesn't seem to have been documented, using the maker's mark R.MERRICK in a serrated punch. Examples of this man's work are in the Winterthur collection, with no location posited. It is evident, however, from the crudeness of the punch that a large-city origin point is unlikely. This piece is faintly engraved JK in period script. This tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. The... Click for details

Whiting "Egyptian" Figural Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3610dd   $95.00


click for details
Featuring a pharaoh or sphinx-like figure flanked by ibis birds at the handle tip, and papyrus leaves midway down, Whiting's "Egyptian" was issued in 1875 during a time when this theme was experiencing a revival.

It is a fuller expression of the motif than the company's "Lotus" pattern of about the same period--and nearly a mirror image of Gorham's line by the same name and time--in that it incorporates more detailed and literal imagery.

The bowl on this 6 7/8" long, approximately 1.1 T.... Click for details

This 7 5/8" long, approximately 1.3 T. oz., coin silver, preserve or jelly spoon has a double provenance in that it is stamped with a Gothic "W&H" for Philadelphia's Watts & Harper manufacturer, and with the name "C.F. Greenwood," for the Norfolk, Virginia, jeweler.

Catherine Hollan in Philadelphia Silversmiths gives narrow dates for the W&H partnership, 1859-61/62, while Cutten's Silversmiths of Virginia indicates Greenwood began his business about 1850.
