Rare Philadelphia Teaspoon with Both of J. W. Gethen's Marks Ca. 1815
click for details
Offered is a very rare example (used in Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths") of a spoon bearing both of John W. Gethen's known marks. By style, this spoon should date to the 1810-15 range given its square shoulders, but it could be a bit earlier or later. Although Gethen lived until 1846, he seems to have made little silver after about 1819, and may have turned to other types of manufacturing. Most if not all of his IWG-marked spoons are stylistically associated with the first two... Click for details

Uncommon forms, bouillon ladles are typically larger than gravy but noticeably smaller than soups. They also have double spouts in the manner of punch ladles, which they could double for in some instances.

All of this is reflected in this example made by the Sterling Silver Manufacturing Company (later Saart) of Providence, Rhode Island.

It measures 7 1/2" long and weighs 1.3 T. oz. The flanged rim bowl is 3 1/4" wide, 2 1/8" front to back, and 1" deep. It has a frosted matte gold... Click for details

Durgin "Scroll" Elaborate Sterling Silver Sugar Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Durgin
click for details
Taking its name from a generic design term, Durgin's 1886 "Scroll" is a much more complex pattern than the designation might imply.

The scroll effect is derived from high relief leaf forms arrayed on the upper half of the handle.

Flower blossoms, perhaps wild rose or dogwood, are set below this, and lastly there is another section of leafy detailing. All in all, the pattern is something akin to a repousse with an Aesthetic influence.

This example is a 5 11/16" long, weighty at... Click for details

Early Coin Silver Tablespoon by John Frederick Ernst of Cooperstown NY

Offered is a large early American coin silver tablespoon marked ERNST in a rectangular punch; the monogram and style of the punch indicate this piece is definitely American, as does the style of the spoon itself. John Frederick Ernst, Jr. worked in Cooperstown from circa 1808 to his death in 1830, and though the Darling Foundation's book on New York silversmiths does not have a picture of a mark for him, he is the best fit to have made this piece by style.
