A lovely early American coin silver teaspoon by silversmith John Owen of Philadelphia, circa 1815. Owen is known for his birdback teaspoons, but this spoon has a bowlback decoration of a spangle or crown (or possibly even a stand of tulips!) that is unrecorded in Hollan, or elsewhere to my knowledge. In fifteen years of dealing in coin silver, I have never seen another. This spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only light wear from normal usage. It is...

This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs... Click for details

A good small American coin silver teaspoon by an undocumented silversmith with maker's mark of O. Pierce (first name unknown), circa 1812-24.
