Silver : Coin Silver : Serving Pieces

Old Friends  
3375f   $85.00

Having a double Philadelphia provenance, this coin silver spoon is marked with James Watts' horse head emblem, and "George M. Bechtel" for the well-known retailer, 1850-60, later in partnership with George Eno.

It is a substantially sized piece at 9" long and weighing just under 1.5 T. oz.

Having a scalloped handle with an engraved surface, it reads as both characteristic for the period and for Philadelphia. The backside is plain save for the marks.

There is a handsome, feathered... Click for details

Polhhamus "Ionic" Sterling Silver Place Spoon Retailed by Tiffany & Co
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3374f   $34.00


click for details
One of Tiffany's favored suppliers before it began to produce its own silver, was New York City's John Polhamus, who was the manufacturer of this 7" long, heavy at 1.6 T. oz., dessert or place spoon.

The pattern is "Ionic," patented in 1860, as marked on the reverse. Other identifiers include "J.P.," "Tiffany & Co.," and "Sterling." Tiffany was early to require a sterling, rather than the then dominant coin, standard.

"Ionic" is double die struck, meaning the design appears on both... Click for details

Good Coin Silver Teaspoon by William Seal of Philadelphia Ca. 1815
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180107-08   $27.50


click for details
Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith William Seal, born and perhaps trained in Virginia but known to be working alone and in partnership in Philadelphia between 1810 and 1822. He lived until 1853 but the style of his silver does not post-date about 1820. This piece is in good condition overall, with moderate wear and no dents, splits or repairs. It is nicely engraved with a period script monogram and has a legible maker's mark as well as... Click for details

Fine Set of Three Philadelphia Coin Silver Spoons by Amable Brasier

Offered is a very good set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Amable Brasier (b. 1764 - d. 1842), working in that city between about 1795 and 1826. These three teaspoons are in a fin-less fiddle pattern and probably date to between 1800 and 1810. Each piece is expertly engraved 'EW' in period script. Each spoon also bears Brasier's maker's mark - one mark is rubbed but legible, and the other two are clear and well-struck. These spoons each measure... Click for details

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver teaspoons marked R.Wilson in script, for Robert Wilson, silversmith of New York and then Philadelphia, prior to his death in 1824. Mr. Wilson's sons, Robert and William, went on to great success after Robert Sr.'s death, establishing one of the most prolific silver manufacturing operations in the first half of the 19th Century. Robert Wilson Sr.'s work is typically marked with a maker's mark of RW in an oval, and is usually recognizably New... Click for details

All in all a fine example of this man's output!

Pair of Late 18th Century Coin Silver Sugar Tongs - Standish Barry?
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180107-01   $95.00


click for details
Offered is a nice pair of late 18th Century American coin silver sugar tongs marked only with a maker's mark of S.B - a mark given in Belden's "American Silversmiths" to Col. Standish Barry of Baltimore, MD. See Belden, page 49, mark d. for Barry. The strength of the attribution to Barry in Belden is based on stylistic similarities to known Belden work, and the relatively small number of potential craftsmen with the right initials working in the right time period. In any event, these sugar... Click for details

American? Silver Sugar Tongs Circa 1760-70 - Maker's Mark T.H Only
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180106-17   $125.00


click for details
Offered is a nice pair of 18th Century silver sugar tongs dating by style to the 1760s or early 1770s, bearing only a maker's mark of T.H in a rectangle. This maker's mark is fairly crude and doesn't look like a British mark, but the proportions of this pair of tongs look more British than American to me. So, are these tongs British, and dodge paying duty? Were they perhaps made provincially within the UK proper, far away from an assay office? Could they be from somewhere else in the Empire,...

Interesting American Silver Teaspoon Circa 1750-70 - Maker?
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180106-16   $65.00


click for details
Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon that by style appears to date to the 1750-70 timeframe; the maker's mark ends with an "E" that looks an awful lot like one of Samuel Edwards' marks, but I can't make out the first letter. The outline of the mark is right for Samuel Edwards as well, but the drop on the spoon is different from those I've seen used by Edwards. So, probably a different maker. Does anyone have a theory? This piece is engraved with block... Click for details

20180106-13   NOT FOR SALE

Another mystery piece and mark, at least to me! Perhaps I've overlooked something obvious about this crested silver cream ladle, circa 1810-25, but I am assuming it to be American coin silver, probably from the New England region. However, I've had no luck tracking down a potential maker, despite a good maker's mark with relatively uncommon initials. The maker's mark is a crude "SL", indicating perhaps more provincial or small-town manufacture, though this is not dispositive. This piece... Click for details

Offered is a very rare early American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia silversmith Peter Gallard, working circa 1800-22. This piece by style should date to the 1800-10 period; see my other listings for a teaspoon that is probably from the second decade of Mr. Gallard's career. This spoon has a clear maker's mark and a good period engraved script monogram of "EG". This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition overall is very good, with modest surface wear... Click for details

Excellent Fiddlethread Pattern Tablespoon by Thomas Fletcher of Phila.

Offered is a very sought-after table spoon from the heavy and luxurious American coin silver fiddlethread pattern made by celebrated Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Fletcher, circa 1827-42. Fletcher's fiddlethread is probably the height of quality for this pattern in America prior to the Civil War - it is uniformly excellent, and heavy. It virtually always has a well-done period script monogram to the reverse ("SHS" on this piece), making it quite possible to build a full service in this... Click for details

Offered is a very good group of early American coin silver teaspoons, all three by James Black (working circa 1796-1819), but with different workmen's marks, and with two different maker's marks for Black. The marks on these spoons were used in the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan - the definitive reference on the subject. These spoons range in date from about 1805 for the transitional fiddle spoon without shoulders, to about 1815-19 for the fiddle spoon with pointed shoulders, which... Click for details

The mark on this particular spoon is uncommon and was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan. This piece also has a good period engraved script monogram.

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by jeweler and silversmith Samuel W. Pepper, son of the much more well-known Henry J. Pepper, silversmith of Wilmington and Philadelphia. Samuel worked only a year or two in Delaware, spending the majority of his career in Philadelphia. His spoons are usually marked as here - just PEPPER, incuse.
