Good and Rare Marietta, Ohio Coin Silver Spoon by Elisha Pratt

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20191110-04   $29.50


click for details
Offered is an excellent early Marietta coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Elisha Pratt (b. 1798 - d. 1855), who was trained by his father, silversmith Azariah Pratt in Marietta, his apprenticeship beginning around 1815 or a bit earlier. By the 1820s, Elisha would have been working on his own in Marietta, though the first formal note of his profession as a silversmith seems to date to 1828. By the 1850 census, Elisha Pratt was described as a gunsmith. This spoon by style should... Click for details

Syracuse, NY Coin Silver Spoon by Hiram Judson w/Interesting Mark

Offered is a circa 1824-40 American coin silver teaspoon by Syracuse silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Hiram Judson, working circa 1824 to his death in 1853. By style, this piece would be on the early end of his career. The maker's mark of H.JUDSON is well struck, and there is another, very interesting mark in a shield form, perhaps heraldic. This mark doesn't appear to be associated with any other Judson pieces observed online, and may have been the mark of a transiting journeyman. In any... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4033f   $110.00

Alvin's 1899 "Edward VII is nearly without parallel in the realm of silver patterns.

The only similarly themed line is Whiting's "Heraldic," while a weak third is Baker-Manchester's "Spartan."

All three feature a knight's helmet at the handle end, which in Alvin's instance is also embellished with scrolling acanthus leaves.

Nice Georg Jensen "Lily of the Valley" Pattern Dessert Spoon Ca. 1915
Silver : Sterling

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20191103-19   $25.00


click for details
Offered is a very fine and early Lily of the Valley pattern (also known as LILJEKONVAL pattern) Scandinavian / Danish silver dessert spoon by noted silversmith Georg Jensen, circa 1915 to judge by the period engraving. Jensen himself designed this pattern circa 1913, so this is an early production piece. The marks appear to be slightly different than those typically seen, but I think it is unlikely they are spurious given the period engraving, which is to finely executed to be incorrect. This...
