Theodore Schwabe Tablespoon Ca. 1846-56, Zanesville, OH

A fine and rare American coin silver tablespoon by little-known Zanesville, Ohio jeweler Theodore Schwabe, working circa 1846-58. This is the only example of Schwabe's work that I've encountered or heard of. Schwabe was also a clockmaker, and an eight-day clock is known bearing his name. Schwabe advertised as a manufacturer of Masonic jewelry in 1858; he died in that year. Silver bearing Schwabe's mark appears to be quite rare, and this is a good example, with an extremely clear maker's... Click for details

This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs... Click for details

Many 19th century social conventions seem at odds with current practices. Such is the manner of notating gifts or presentations. The first person of interest in today's world is the recipient, while the second one is the giver; the order is "to" and "from." The 19th century practice was typically the reverse of this, with the giver the more significant figure.

That custom is evidenced by the inscription on this large, 9 3/8" long, 2.1 T. oz., coin silver serving spoon. The front is... Click for details
