These spoons are slightly different at the neck and have a minor difference in the engraving, but have the same bowl shape and general proportions; they came on the market at the same time and from the same state as the Bentley & Wood spoons, and may...

Offered is an extraordinary set of four early American coin silver dessert spoons by Washington, DC silversmiths Joseph Bentley and William Wood, circa 1809. This brief partnership, conducted at the Washington Navy Yard, lasted only from December 1808 through the end of August 1809, when it was dissolved by mutual consent. Silver bearing the mark of this partnership is of course extremely rare, and this set of dessert spoons with extremely well preserved maker's marks is very likely the best... Click for details

Iowa Coin Silver Tablespoon by John H. Potts of Lyons, Ca. 1854-70

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon retailed by Lyons, Iowa jeweler John H. Potts, working in that town from 1854 to his death in 1914. This piece probably dates to no later than about 1870, and most likely is from the 1860s. The John H. Potts whose retailer's mark appears on this spoon (which is also marked Lyons for the city), is apparently not the same man who was advertising as a silversmith and dentist in Fayette, Missouri in 1844 - the Iowa J. H. Potts was born in Harper's... Click for details

George Sharp "Emperor" Unusual Coin Silver Serving Fork
Silver : Coin Silver : Serving Pieces

Old Friends  
3659f   $105.00


click for details
Measuring 7 3/4" long and weighing 2.0 T. oz., this fork has rounded shoulders and three wide and lengthy tines, the outer two of which are splayed.

The form is uncommon and hence of uncertain function. It may be a spinach or toast/bread fork, or for another purpose yet. The proportions assure it is definitely original and not adapted from another piece as, for example, most potato forks are derived from dinner forks.

The maker was George Sharp, Philadelphia, as indicated by his "lion, S,... Click for details
