Catherine Hollan in "Philadelphia Silversmiths" lists William Faber as working by 1828 and joined by sons Charles and William as "Faber & Sons" in 1866, which name and firm lasted until 1887.

Good Pair Teaspoons by Henry Erwin of Philadelphia, w/Pseudo-Hallmark

20181006-03   $47.50


click for details
Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Henry Erwin, circa 1816-34. Although spoons by Erwin are not uncommon and I have handled many, the pseudo-hallmark on these spoons to the right of the maker's mark are unique in my experience. What exactly they represent visually is a mystery - it looks to me like a hunting dog looking back over its shoulder when oriented so that the bottom is toward the name mark. These spoons also have period... Click for details

height 7 1/2 inches, width across handle 5 1/4 inches, weight 18 Troy ounces, capacity one quart, marked as shown in fourth enlargement. A classic, organic shape made famous by the Jensen Silversmithy (and featured on the dj of Janet Drucker's popular book), this design was conceived by Rohde in 1925, but did not enter production until 1930 because it was considered too radical.

This lovely example is entirely hand wrought, and dates from 1948. There have been a few dents removed from... Click for details

For those of you who wonder what that unusual symbol between the Whiting trademark and "sterling" might mean, we suspect that is a letter h inside a circle, meaning 'heavy,' since these weigh a bit more than the average Lily butter spreader.

He was in fact the second manufacturer, after Michael Gibney to patent a flatware design, with that on these six, matching, coin silver tea or dessert forks, dating to 1847 as indicated by the "Patent 1847" mark on the reverse. The... Click for details
