Offered is a interesting American coin silver table spoon by Constant Southworth (a rare mark by a little-known maker), and partly over-struck by Guy Loomis. Mr. Southworth was born in 1802 in Sheffield, Massachusetts, and married there in 1823. By 1830 he was working about 6 1/2 miles away in Great Barrington, continuing there until after 1850. He died in 1876. It is quite likely Constant Southworth knew Guy Loomis (1795-1874), who spent the first period in his career (circa 1816-37)... Click for details

It is also inscribed "Viola" on the backside of the handle.

In good condition, it retains excellent form and... Click for details

For our first listing of 2018, let's return to some good old fashioned pattern silver, a subject in which few folks seem to have any interest but we'll give it a shot because I'm a glutton for punishment and thrive on rejection.

Retailed by Boston's own late lamented and very elegant Bigelow Kennard, this implement is 8 5/8 inches long, weighs 2.76 Troy ounces, has no monogram and is in excellent condition. If memory serves me correctly, this is the first pea spoon we've ever offered in... Click for details

Charming items, and generally one of the harder to find (or not even available) serving pieces in most patterns, jelly cake servers are characterized by their long, narrow, trowel-like, blades.

20180107-12   Sold

Offered is a very good, and possibly unique, early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Richard Parker, working briefly circa 1785 and then disappearing from the records. According to Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (the mark on this particular spoon was used for that book), birdbacks by Parker are known, so he may have had some success in the field for a brief time. However, this is the only example of Parker's work that I've ever seen. This piece measures about 5... Click for details

Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is... Click for details
