Large, Octagonal Fletcher Repousse Coin Silver Mug
click for details
Stamped with a broken die ". Fletcher" on the underside, with the letter before the period rubbed away, this mug is likely by Thomas Fletcher of Boston and Philadelphia, although his brother Henry of Boston and Lexington, Kentucky, used a similar mark.

In either case, it is a noteworthy item. Thomas Fletcher was long associated with Sidney Gardiner and the two of them produced some of the most significant silver of the 19th century.

This piece is a 3 1/2" tall to the rim, 3 7/8" to the... Click for details

C.&A.W. Johnson, Albany,
click for details
Working with his brother, Alonzo, in Albany, New York, 1831-38, Chauncey Johnson is identified as a silversmith and jeweler.

In addition to the "C. & A.W. Johnson" for that partnership stamped on this 8 1/2" long, 1.5 T. oz., tablespoon, it also carries an "eagle, D, bust" pseudo hallmark. In his benchmark work on these marks, McGrew associates this with Hall and Hewson, also of Albany, which suggests a relationship between these two parties.

A straightforward, down-turned "Reverse... Click for details

Circa 1860 Twist Handle Philadelphia Coin Soup Ladle
click for details
This 11 1/2" long, just under 4.2 T. oz., soup ladle incorporates several particularly appealing elements favored in mid 19th century American silver originating in sophisticated urban centers. In that regard, while marked only "Coin," the style of this piece rather conclusively suggests a Philadelphia source such as James Watts or one of his contemporaries.

It has a robust, twisted shank with a broad, scalloped edge, terminal. This is artfully engraved and bright cut in a period design... Click for details
