Old Friends  
3369f   $42.00

Measuring 3" closed and 5" long fully opened, this circa 1850 knife has two blades, the larger one for cutting and the smaller one that resembles an awl, for piercing the skin of fruit.

Stamped "Coin" on the larger blade, there is no further identification, save that this belonged to "Emily" as engraved in script on the reserve area on one side of the engine turned surfaces of the handle.

There is a repeating line and star design on the upper edge of one of the blade braces, and a line... Click for details

Norfolk, VA Coin Silver Spoon by Charles Frederick Greenwood, c1847-65

20180102-03   $60.00


click for details
Offered is a good and scarce Southern coin silver teaspoon with the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Charles Frederick Greenwood, living in Edenton, North Carolina in 1846 and then opening a small silversmith and jeweler's shop in Norfolk, VA in 1847. This spoon bears the earlier of his two marks, and he seems to have adopted sterling fairly early, so it would most likely date to the 1847-65 period, probably on the earlier end. This spoon is engraved with a period script monogram of 'FP' and... Click for details

Gorham & Webster "Reverse Tipt" Six Coin Silver Teaspoons, Immaculate

Old Friends

Dating to the earliest decades of Gorham's history, these six, matched, coin silver, spoons are marked "Gorham & Webster," for a partnership that traces to 1831-37.

Each one measures 7 1/2" long, which is an unusual size by contemporary convention in that it is lengthier than a dessert spoon but not quite as long as a tablespoon. In their time, when large scale was favored, these would have served as standard place pieces.

They have a substantial feel, although they weigh marginally... Click for details

Offered is a very fine and scarce pair of early American coin silver tablespoons marked with a standard mark of "5 FRANCS", by the noted Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson, working circa 1825-50. Surprisingly little is known about this firm, despite its prominence and the great numbers of spoons and other pieces that survive bearing one of the firm's marks. Despite the prevalence of silver by the Wilson's, almost nothing survives of their silver items marked with various standard... Click for details

Offered is a nice American coin silver salt shovel by prolific Lancaster, Pennsylvania jewelers, watchmakers and silversmiths Michael Zahm and John W. Jackson, working in partnership as Zahm & Jackson from about 1845 on. This spoon is in poor condition, with a dinged up and split bowl and worn maker's mark - however, I just can't stand to see it go into the melting pot, and hope someone will want to "adopt" it! It measures about 4 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams. This piece... Click for details

Offered is an early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark of New York City silversmith John Foster, working circa 1809-18. This fin-less fiddle spoon probably dates to the earlier side of Foster's career, though his working life seems to have been somewhat short. The maker's mark on this spoon is clear and well-struck; it is sometimes attributed to the Virginia John Foster, but that attribution seems to have been definitively debunked by Catherine Hollan in her "Virginia...
