Fayetteville, North Carolina Teaspoon by John Selph
click for details
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

Offered is a fine early American coin silver tea spoon by noted Philadelphia and New Orleans silversmith Anthony Rasch.
