Tracing to the mid 19th century, this pair of coin tongs are early production items from Cincinnati's premier silver and jewelry house, "Duhme & Co.," as indicated by the stamp on the inside of each arm.

They are large at 6 5/8" long, and heavy at 1.7 T. oz., and combine a variety of period design elements. They may be pickle tongs, for use with a tall caster.

Offered is a good pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Virginia silversmith Jehu Williams, Sr., working first in Fredericksburg and then for the majority of his career in Lynchburg. For most of his time in Lynchburg, Williams was in partnership with John Victor - the partnership began around 1814 and lasted until Victor's death in 1845. Williams then worked alone from 1845 to 1856 and with his son from 1856 to Jehu Sr.'s death in 1859. The mark on these spoons is attributed by Hollan to... Click for details

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the rare maker's mark of silversmith and clockmaker William Drysdale (working in Philadelphia circa 1816-56), who despite his long working life left little of his work to posterity. The mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan, and I've not seen another example. This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. It features a clear maker's mark, a floret mark... Click for details

Offered is a very good pair of American coin silver table spoons by Philadelphia merchant and jeweler Theodore LeHuray, circa 1846-51. These tablespoons are rare survivors in that Theodore only went into the jewelry and silversmithing business for a few years, after his father (Nicholas LeHuray, Jr.) died in 1846. His attempt to carry on the family firm under his own name appears to have been unsuccessful, and he soon turned to other pursuits. The maker's mark of T LE HURAY in conjoined boxes is...

Offered is an excellent and scarce pair of American coin silver tea spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin, each bearing one of his rarest maker's marks - J.M'MULLIN in a rectangular punch. Mr. McMullin was successful and prolific, and had numerous maker's marks over his long career, but only one used a "J" for his first initial, rather than an "I". In about fifteen years of collecting Philadelphia silver specifically, these are the only examples of this maker's mark I was able... Click for details

Each arm is stamped "F. [for Foster] Tinkham," born in Middleboro, Massachusetts, and documented working in New York City in 1840 as a jeweler and watchmaker.

The "Fiddle" shape of the arms on these correlates with that date.

They are in remarkably fine condition, and especially so for an item the better part of... Click for details

Offered is an excellent and desirable American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddle and shell pattern by noted Philadelphia jewelers and silversmiths Thibault & Brothers, working in that town circa 1810-37. By style, this spoon probably dates to 1820 or later. This piece has a good engraved period script monogram and a well-struck, clear maker's mark. The die-struck shell decoration is relatively unworn. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition is... Click for details

Offered is a nice American coin silver long-handled salt spoon or condiment spoon, circa 1810-30, marked D.OLIVER in a rectangular punch. This mark is attributed by Ensko to a Daniel Oliver of Philadelphia, circa 1805, but Hollan was unable to uncover any objective evidence supporting this attribution for her book "Philadelphia Silversmiths". Nonetheless, the mark on this spoon was included in the book for discussion purposes. I have not been able to locate any additional information on this... Click for details

Offered is an interesting American coin silver teaspoon by Henry McKeen of Philadelphia, working as a watchmaker and silversmith in that town between about 1823 and 1861. This piece is in a late 18th or very early 19th Century style, and is not typical of McKeen's usual fiddle pattern spoons. It may have been made to match an earlier English or American set of spoons. In any event, it is the Old English style, and has a period script monogram consistent with spoons of that generation. The... Click for details

Offered is a Philadelphia coin silver dessert spoon by well-known silversmith George K. Childs, whose work is often seen, but almost exclusively with his G.K.CHILDS mark. Two other marks, G.CHILDS and the G.K.C. mark on this piece, are much, much rarer. I've observed only one example each of those two marks in the past fifteen years, and the mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. The maker's mark is clear and well-struck. This piece measures... Click for details
