Dating from the mid 19th century, these two coin silver spoons have New England origins. One is marked "W.J.

Both pieces have "Tipt" ends and shell bowls, but each is distinct in how these are presented.

Fayetteville, North Carolina Teaspoon by John Selph

Offered is a fine and very early example of the work of Fayetteville, NC silversmith John Selph, working circa 1807 to 1838. Selph's work is quite scarce, and this piece is the earliest I've seen by style. The square shoulders and tapered transitional handle put this in the first decade of Selph's career, most likely somewhere between 1807-15. This piece bears a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram that is a little rubbed but appears to be ERW. Condition is decent... Click for details

Rare Anthony Rasch Teaspoon Marked STERLING SILR.

Offered is a fine early American coin silver tea spoon by noted Philadelphia and New Orleans silversmith Anthony Rasch. This spoon is interesting in that it is one of the few pieces of flatware Rasch marked STERLING SILR.; only a few Philadelphia and Baltimore silversmiths seem to have been doing this in the first two decades of the 19th Century. The maker's mark and standard mark on this spoon are well-struck and clear, and the spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. This piece... Click for details

Offered is a rare early American coin silver table spoon by Richard Flower, Jr., working in Philadelphia circa 1783-86. After 1786 he appears to have turned to other professions. Flower is known for his birdback spoons, which are quite uncommon. This is the only example of his work I've come across. The maker's mark is very well struck and clear, and the period engraved script monogram is well executed. The bird (pictured) is a dove, and is fairly well preserved. Condition overall is fair,...

Offered is a rare American coin silver teaspoon marked by David Henry Bishop of Bethlehem. David H. Bishop (b. November 19, 1815, d. December 10, 1874) was apprenticed to Charles F. Beckel to learn the clockmaking business, and according to Whisker (whose book has his first and middle names transposed), took over from Beckel in 1830, while still a boy. Bishop was apparently listed as both a silversmith and a clockmaker, but his silver seems to be exceedingly uncommon, so he may have focused on... Click for details
