A fine and rare early American coin silver coffee spoon or tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Jacob Frank, working from 1778 to 1794. This spoon and its rare die-struck foliate bowl decoration are featured in "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan; this spoon is the only example I have come across of Frank's work. The spoon's decoration is in relatively good shape, considering the age, and the mark is well-struck and very clear. This piece has no monogram and there is no sign of erasure. ... Click for details

There are varying attributions for the "Parkman" stamp that appears on the backside of this 9" long, 1.8 T. oz. coin silver tablespoon. Assigned by Winterthur as an alternate mark for Thomas Parkman born about 1767 in Hartford, and working there until 1793, then Boston, next followed by Hudson, New York about 1795, possibly in association with a group of Quakers. A reliable online source opines this mark may be that for Charles Parkman, 1785-1834, but the c. 1790 style of this is too early for... Click for details
