This design appears on the underside as well as the top and is marked simply Jones, Ball & Poor, a Boston maker / retailer, as well as a small and faint script monogram, Cheever. The condition is quite good, with light age-related wear – no bends or dents or pits. The length is 5.4 inches, the bowl is 1-15/16 inches and weighs 18... Click for details

Early Gorham Coin Pompeii Forks (4)

Early Gorham Coin Pompeii Forks (4)
click for details
The Classical elements of Gorham's Pompeii pattern – volutes, acanthus, anthemion – are as crisp as when they were new, with no heel, knife, or stacking scratches. Amazing that these four dinner-size (7.5 inch) forks could have survived over 150 years with no monogram! They were likely made in the year the pattern was introduced (1868) because they are coin (Gorham phased out coin silver in 1868) and they have 'Patent Applied For' which assures an early production. Weight is 212 grams.

“Elias Davis of Newburyport, Massachusetts, remains an elusive figure, mentioned in only a few documents,” writes Patricia E. Kane in her monumental and definitive tome, “Colonial Massachusetts Silversmiths and Jewelers.” Davis was born in Newburyport in 1746 and died there in 1783. Some references list his name as Edward Davis, or posit that there were two Newburyport silversmiths named Davis, but Kane thinks this is an error. "However, it is suggested here that they are one and the... Click for details

Birdback serving spoon by James Black, Phila.

Oval-end handle, c1800 -- feathered script mono T H C on front; 8-1/2" long. This spoon is also marked IWG for John Ward Gethen, also of Philly, which presents a bit of a puzzle. Both Black and Gethen were silversmiths, the first starting his career in 1795, the latter in 1811. It could be that Gethen added the piece to his inventory and sold it out of his shop. The spoon is in excellent condition, the extended bowl tip unworn. The bird is lightly struck, but all of its parts seem to be... Click for details

Deep, short front rib on handle, rattail extending 3/4 of the way down bowl, block mono G over I * S on reverse; 7-3/4" in length. Light tipwear, otherwise in excellent condition. We've been able to identify this TA mark by referring to the American Silversmiths Genealogical Project, which you can reach by googling American Silversmiths. This spoon is, without doubt, a rarity among Colonial silver.
