Offered is a very fine early American coin silver pair of master salt spoons by the short-lived partnership of Rowland Parry and James Musgrave, working in Philadelphia as Parry & Musgrave from 1792 to 1795. Silver bearing their mark is uncommon. These spoons are a very good example of an 18th century form, and are quite scarce from this era in American silver. Each bears the partnership's mark of P&M, and each has period engraved script monogram of RP to the front and a slightly later but... Click for details

A lovely early American coin silver teaspoon by silversmith John Owen of Philadelphia, circa 1815. Owen is known for his birdback teaspoons, but this spoon has a bowlback decoration of a spangle or crown (or possibly even a stand of tulips!) that is unrecorded in Hollan, or elsewhere to my knowledge. In fifteen years of dealing in coin silver, I have never seen another. This spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only light wear from normal usage. It is...

A good small American coin silver teaspoon by an undocumented silversmith with maker's mark of O. Pierce (first name unknown), circa 1812-24. Although this mark has traditionally been associated with a Boston tradesman circa 1824, which would fit by style, there is also an Oliver Pierce, "jeweller" (or silversmith), listed in the New York city directory for 1812, at 189 William St. He is not listed in the 1813 directory. Although this piece is too late for that date, it is possible Oliver... Click for details

William Burdick Early 19th c. Coin Serving Spoon

Biographical material about William Pendleton Burdick, the maker of this spoon, indicates he was something of an itinerant. Born in Vermont about 1792, he worked in Hartford, Connecticut in various partnerships, then in Ithaca, New York, and finally in San Francisco, and died in Iowa.

This piece is a 9 3/8" long, not quite 2.0 T. oz., table or serving spoon. The style, with a plain end, central rib back, and plain drop, suggests it was made during his Ithaca years, c. 1815-20. It has a... Click for details

This large ladle, well wrought by the most prominent silversmith of Reading, Pennslvania, is at first sight startling in its elegance. The long neck and thin fiddle terminal, graced by a finely engraved script monogram, make it an exceptional piece for the period when forms often were clumsy. The overall balance of design is remarkable. It dates to about 1820. Mannerback, who was born on August 4, 1762, learned the jewelry trade which he carried on for more than 50 years.

Mug with uniquely American agricultural motif

In 1825, the Erie Canal opened, sending to NYC and beyond the agricultural riches of Ohio and ultimately the entire midwest. For 10 years -- from 1825-35 -- this cornucopia was celebrated in the arts, including the art of silvermaking. The basket-of-flowers and sheaf-of-wheat flatware patterns are examples; so too is this mug with its band of farm produce and equipment -- corn-filled wagon, barn, windmill, beehives, farm house, corn crib, scythe, rake, and a sheaf-of-wheat design repeated 10...

In her work, "Silversmiths of Lancaster, Pennsylvannia, 1730-1850," Vivian Gerstell describes Charles Hall (1742-1783) as a "prominent citizen as well as silversmith." She further remarks that he "played a prominent role in Lancaster during the Revolution. In 1774, he was a member of the Committee of Correspondence and of the Committee of Observation." This modest, and rather primitive looking, small spoon bears his identified "C. Hall" on the reverse, along with a second mark which is... Click for details
