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

Kirk & Son 11 oz. Silver Heavy Chased Dessert Spoon

Baltimore assay standards were particular to that city and bore their own marks.

This 7 1/4" long, weighty at 1.6 T. oz., dessert or place spoon reflects that particularity. It is stamped "11 oz." which indicates a silver content between coin and sterling.

It is also marked "S.K & Son," for Samuel Kirk & Son. This combination of identifiers suggests a date circa 1830, with the standard mark passing out of use about then and this particular maker identification coming into use about... Click for details

Albert Coles

Produced circa 1860 by New York City's Albert Coles, this pickle fork and knife set are an idiomatic form for the period.

The knife measures 6 7/8" long while the fork measures 6 1/4". The combined weight is approximately 2.1 T. oz., but a substantial portion of this is the filling in the handles.

The pattern is a "Leaf" variant with other elements that resemble common motifs of the time. In this case, the look is quite similar to Polhamus' "Armor."

The blade of the knife is... Click for details

A very good early American coin silver table spoon marked W.MILLER with a pseudo-hallmark of an eagle. This mark is sometimes given to a South Carolina silversmith by the name of William Miller, but the weight of evidence is that this mark is one of the marks used by Philadelphia silversmith William Miller, working circa 1810-40. So, likely not Southern coin silver. This spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only moderate wear from normal usage. It is... Click for details

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

A scarce American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith and watchmaker John Townsend, circa 1825-50. John Townsend's son John K.
