Applied Medallion Engine Turned Coin Pie Server
click for details
Dating from the 1860s, this pie server features two popular design features of the period. One is the applied classical head of the sort that gave this genre, "Medallion," its name. The second feature is the engine turned surface of the blade. This was a widely used decorative technique at the time, one because it was appealing, and likely two, because it showed off a specialized capacity of the manufacturers.

This measures 9" long and weighs 2.0 T. oz. The blade is 4 1/4 by 2 5/8" at... Click for details

A good early American coin silver table spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Harvey Lewis, circa 1820-25.

Philadelphia Coin Silver Tablespoon by William Miller

A very good early American coin silver table spoon marked W.MILLER with a pseudo-hallmark of an eagle. This mark is sometimes given to a South Carolina silversmith by the name of William Miller, but the weight of evidence is that this mark is one of the marks used by Philadelphia silversmith William Miller, working circa 1810-40. So, likely not Southern coin silver. This spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only moderate wear from normal usage. It is... Click for details

Theodore Schwabe Tablespoon Ca. 1846-56, Zanesville, OH

A fine and rare American coin silver tablespoon by little-known Zanesville, Ohio jeweler Theodore Schwabe, working circa 1846-58. This is the only example of Schwabe's work that I've encountered or heard of. Schwabe was also a clockmaker, and an eight-day clock is known bearing his name. Schwabe advertised as a manufacturer of Masonic jewelry in 1858; he died in that year. Silver bearing Schwabe's mark appears to be quite rare, and this is a good example, with an extremely clear maker's... Click for details

Philadelphia Coin Silver Pictureback Spoon Circa 1815

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...

A scarce American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith and watchmaker John Townsend, circa 1825-50. John Townsend's son John K. Townsend was also a watchmaker, as well as a dentist, and so this spoon could have been the work of the son, though more likely the father. The mark on the spoon is J.TOWNSEND in a rectangle, and the spoon is also decorated with period script monograms of "ALH" to the front and "AH" to the back. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs... Click for details

A good American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia watchmaker and clockmaker George K. Lentz, working circa 1825 at 96 N. 4th Street. This is the first and only example I've seen of silver marked by Lentz.
