Offered is a fine and rare American coin silver dessert spoon by little-known Harrisburg, Pennsylvania silversmith and jeweler George W. McCalla. McCalla was working in Harrisburg in the 1860s, but his origins are unknown, at least to me. He died at the age of 46 in 1866 after suffering from a debilitating illness for some time.

Offered is a fine American coin silver table spoon circa 1825-50, marked "Jacob" in italicised letters in a conforming punch, with pseudo-hallmarks or manufacturer's marks of a Union shield and the letter "S". I've not come across a Union shield mark like this before, but think it is likely the work of a Maryland silversmith. George Jacob of Baltimore may be a possibility, but there may be other candidates. This piece has no monogram or sign of erasure. It measures about 8 7/8 inches in... Click for details

At 5 3/4" long, this pair of tongs are exceptionally long and commensurately heavy at nearly 1.7 T. oz. Whether intended to be used for ice, they certainly could serve that purpose.

As this pair are stamped "Sterling," they date post 1868 when Gorham adopted the sterling standard. Earlier examples of "Cottage" were made in coin silver. This is... Click for details
