This American coin silver tablespoon dating to about 1820-40 is not for sale, but rather one that I need some help with. It measures about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. It has a faint period script engraved monogram running across the top of the handle, and a maker's mark of D.G in a rectangular punch. This piece has a mid-Atlantic or Midwestern feel, though it could be from some places in the American South outside of the major cities. It is almost certainly not by David... Click for details

Offered is a rare American coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of a Minnesota jeweler, D. C. Greenleaf, working in St. Paul between the mid-1850s and his death around 1880. Although a 25-year old jeweler by the name of D.C. Greenleaf was recorded in the 1860 census for Shelby County, Tennessee, it is more likely that this spoon and mark relate to the Minnesota man, who had a long and successful career. In addition to clear marks, this spoon features a period engraved monogram. This piece... Click for details

Offered is a good Philadelphia coin silver spoon bearing the extremely rare mark of John & Phineas Fries, circa 1837 (the single year of their partnership). While coin silver spoons and other items bearing only the maker's mark of John Fries are somewhat common, and those with just Phineas Fries' maker's mark are scarce but not rare, the mark of their partnership is very hard to find.

They measure about 5 3/16 inches in length, and weigh a total of 71 grams. Condition is fairly... Click for details

Offered is a lovely set of five late Chinese Export Silver tea or coffee spoons in an Arts & Crafts or Art Deco style, bearing ideograms that appear to potentially be for jeweler Tai Shan, working in Peking (Beijing) circa 1890-1935. I could of course be wrong, and would welcome any corrections. Please review the pictures for a closeup of the marks. The front of these spoons are engraved or decorated with an ideogram, which likely is not a monogram specific to an individual but rather an... Click for details

Offered is a nicely preserved circa 1815-30 American coin silver teaspoon, with a maker's mark of C flanked by etoiles. I didn't research the mark, but it may be a mark used by Joseph H. Clark of Portsmouth, NH, as the spoon feels like it could be from that general area. It is very likely from New England, given the style, proportions and monogram. This piece has a good set of marks and a the engraved script monogram is period. This spoon measures about 5 5/16 inches in length and weighs... Click for details
