A 7" long, 1.3 T. oz., place or dessert piece, this spoon traces to the early decades of the 19th century.

It is marked "B&SD" for Benjamin and Samuel Demilt. Multiple sources date this New York City partnership to 1820-35.

20190424-03   $47.50

Offered is a very rare example of the mark of William A. Lloyd, which has only been seen on a handful of pieces to date, including a splendid tea set a few years back. Lloyd doesn't appear in the directories or censuses, and seems to have had a short working career. This tablespoon bearing his mark and also the manufacturer's mark of John W. Gethen seems to date to about 1800-10. It is engraved with a period script monogram, and marked W.A.Lloyd in script in a rectangular punch, struck... Click for details

20180424-01   $29.50


click for details
Offered is a nice pair of New York coin silver teaspoons circa 1825-40 by J.BELL with pseudo-hallmarks; this mark has sometimes been given to John Bell of New York City, but he seems to have worked too early for the style of these spoons unless they were in the last year or two of his career. There were also at least two J. Bells working in Ogdensburg, NY between 1810 and 1850 or 60, and this could be the mark of one of those men. In any event, these are two nicely marked spoons with a good... Click for details

Offered is a quite rare English sterling silver meat skewer hallmarked for Exeter, 1823, by master silversmith Joseph Hicks. Exeter silver is uncommon enough, and this form is quite rare outside of the major production centers like London. This piece is fully marked with clear, well-struck hallmarks and a legible maker's mark. It is also engraved with a period script monogram of "RR". This skewer is by far the largest and heaviest I've come across, and feels like a sword blade. Please take... Click for details

"Jenny Lind" was a pattern first introduced by New York City's Albert Coles in 1850, although numerous contemporaneous manufacturers took up the design, leaving extant pieces that bear a variety of makers' marks.

This example, a 7 1/4", weighty at 1.5 T. oz., place, aka oval soup or dessert, spoon is a rarity though in that it is stamped "11" (one of Baltimore's individualized standard marks, for a .917 silver content, midway between coin and sterling) and "A.E.W" for Baltimore's Andrew...
