Scarce Harrisburg, PA Dessert Spoon - George W. McCalla
click for details
Offered is a fine and rare American coin silver dessert spoon by little-known Harrisburg, Pennsylvania silversmith and jeweler George W. McCalla. McCalla was working in Harrisburg in the 1860s, but his origins are unknown, at least to me. He died at the age of 46 in 1866 after suffering from a debilitating illness for some time. His wife carried on with the shop and its operations for another three years, until closing the business at the end of 1869. This dessert spoon measures about 7 1/4... Click for details

Offered is a rare and fine early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Fincastle and Liberty, Virginia silversmith Charles Aunspaugh (b. 1799, d. 1887). Aunspaugh lived and worked most of his life in Fincastle (and was even apparently postmaster of Fincastle for a period of time), though he spent a few years (possibly in partnership throughout) in Liberty. Little is known about Aunspaugh's life, and only a few teaspoons are known as evidence of his work. This spoon probably dates to... Click for details

Offered is a very scarce and interesting example of the American coin silver wares made by early 19th Century silversmith, jeweler and clock and watch maker William W. Bell (1777-1842). In addition to his career as a silversmith, Mr. Bell also had other pursuits - he is noted as having been an officer (Ensign) in the War of 1812, and he was the appointed Postmaster for Gettysburg from 1829-41. Bell appears to have worked his entire career (about 1800 to his death in 1842) in Gettysburg, and... Click for details

Fine Maryland? Tablespoon, Maker's Mark & Union Shield
click for details
Offered is a fine American coin silver table spoon circa 1825-50, marked "Jacob" in italicised letters in a conforming punch, with pseudo-hallmarks or manufacturer's marks of a Union shield and the letter "S". I've not come across a Union shield mark like this before, but think it is likely the work of a Maryland silversmith. George Jacob of Baltimore may be a possibility, but there may be other candidates. This piece has no monogram or sign of erasure. It measures about 8 7/8 inches in... Click for details

This pair of coin silver tongs measure a lengthy 6 1/4" long and weigh nearly 1.7 T. oz.

Stamped "Rockwell" along with a sheaf of wheat pseudo hallmark, this identifier is attributed to Edward Rockwell by both Louise Belden and John McGrew in their respective works on marks. He is to be distinguished from Samuel D. Rockwell with whom Edward was in partnership 1815-47, with some similarity of marks.

This item appears to date from Edward's early working years, 1803-14. It has a broad... Click for details

Large Gorham

At 5 3/4" long, this pair of tongs are exceptionally long and commensurately heavy at nearly 1.7 T. oz. Whether intended to be used for ice, they certainly could serve that purpose.

The pattern is Gorham's "Cottage," which according to company archives, was in active production for approximately forty years, beginning in 1861. As this pair are stamped "Sterling," they date post 1868 when Gorham adopted the sterling standard. Earlier examples of "Cottage" were made in coin silver. This is... Click for details

Born in 1825 in Weymouth, Massachusetts, on Boston's South Shore, Asa Fairbanks Trufant is listed working as a merchant in nearby Abington, dying in 1879.

Given the "Fiddle Tipt" pattern on this 7 1/4" long, just over .8 T. oz., dessert or place spoon, it would have dated from his earliest working years.

It is monogrammed "JT to EJT" in fancy script lettering and is in exceptionally fine condition. It remains well-formed and retains a perfectly shaped bowl that is free of dents, burrs,... Click for details

Offered is an extremely scarce example of a coffin-end spoon definitively from Philadelphia; in fact, this is the only such example I've ever observed. Coffin-end spoons from New York and New England are quite readily found, but the style never took hold in Philadelphia, and is virtually never seen. This spoon was made by John W. Gethen and retailed by Allen Armstrong, who was working circa 1806-16. This piece features good clear marks and a period engraved script monogram. Condition is... Click for details
