Early Durgin
click for details
Erroneously attributed by Tere Hagen in her reference work on flatware identification to Reed & Barton, this floral pattern is an early line pattern that was produced by William Durgin. Hagen calls it "Spray" but there is no documentation to that effect. The design features a charming bouquet of flowers, leaves, and grasses tied in a bow.

Examples of this show up in both coin and sterling silver, and only occasionally with the Durgin name or mark. This is stamped "Sterling" and "Pat.... Click for details

Fayetteville, North Carolina Teaspoon by John Selph

Offered is a fine and very early example of the work of Fayetteville, NC silversmith John Selph, working circa 1807 to 1838. Selph's work is quite scarce, and this piece is the earliest I've seen by style. The square shoulders and tapered transitional handle put this in the first decade of Selph's career, most likely somewhere between 1807-15. This piece bears a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram that is a little rubbed but appears to be ERW. Condition is decent... Click for details

Rare Anthony Rasch Teaspoon Marked STERLING SILR.

Offered is a fine early American coin silver tea spoon by noted Philadelphia and New Orleans silversmith Anthony Rasch. This spoon is interesting in that it is one of the few pieces of flatware Rasch marked STERLING SILR.; only a few Philadelphia and Baltimore silversmiths seem to have been doing this in the first two decades of the 19th Century.
