Offered is an important early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Shields (working circa 1765-94). This spoon's decoration, like many of my Philadelphia spoons, was featured in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (see page 264). The die-struck decoration is certainly very well preserved, as is the maker's mark for Shields. Overall, condition is fair to good, with some tip wear but no dents, splits or repairs. This piece measures about 4 7/8 inches in... Click for details

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver picture back teaspoon with a die-struck decoration to the back of the bowl that is unusual. The decoration is an abstraction of a shell, and almost looks like a splash of water drops or even of stars. This piece is unmarked but is stylistically closely related to marked Philadelphia pieces. This spoon's decoration, like many of my Philadelphia spoons, was featured in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (see page 259). This spoon is engraved... Click for details

Offered is an exceptional early American coin silver dessert spoon or large teaspoon by important Philadelphia silversmith John Germon, working from about 1782 to 1825 or so.

However, it could simply be a very large teaspoon. This piece has a finely executed period engraved script monogram, a... Click for details

Offered is an important find - an early American coin silver dessert spoon by John Beck, a silversmith working in Warrior's Mark, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania around 1824-30.
