Rare Coin Silver Teaspoon by Charles & George Fletcher of Phila.
click for details
Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of Charles and George Fletcher of Philadelphia, brothers to the famous silversmith and proprietor Thomas Fletcher, whose firm Fletcher and Gardiner would set the standard for monumental silver for a time in Philadelphia. Charles and George united in partnership in July 1818, and dissolved their union by early 1824. Their run in business together appears to have been rather unsuccessful; aside from this teaspoon, I have observed... Click for details

Baldwin Gardiner Coin Silver Spoon Crested for the Morris Family

Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddlethread pattern by Baldwin Gardiner, working circa 1827-48 in New York City. Although this spoon is fairly nondescript in style and has a worn and scratched surface, it also happens to have an interesting armorial and motto - used by a major branch of the Morris clan of Wales, specifically the descendants of Lewis Morris, Lord of the Manor of Morrisania, New York, who arrived in New York in 1674 and was a progenitor of a large branch of...

Southern Coin Silver Fork by Samuel B. Purple of Columbus, Georgia
click for details
Offered is a fine American coin silver christening or dessert fork bearing the mark of Columbus, Georgia jeweler and silversmith Samuel B. Purple, working alone in Columbus from about 1845-57. This fork is a pattern example and probably dates to the latter part of Purple's career; it is assumed Purple retailed rather than manufactured this piece. This fork has a good clear mark as well as a well-executed period script monogram. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about... Click for details

Stockman & Pepper Coin Silver Tablespoon with Unrecorded Mark
click for details
Offered is a fine early American coin silver table spoon by the partnership of Philadelphia silversmiths Jacob Stockman and Henry J. Pepper, who advertised as gold and silver thimble manufacturers during their brief (1828-31) partnership. While the partnership had a lot of output, and its work is still commonly seen, the mark on this spoon is unrecorded and seems to be extremely rare. In almost two decades of involvement with American coin silver, it is the only example I've seen, and my focus... Click for details

Offered is a fine early American coin silver dessert spoon from rare Crawford County, PA (Meadville) silversmith and watchmaker Isaac Myers. In addition to this spoon, I have separately listed a similar dessert spoon from the same family, but with a different monogram.

Durgin

A substantial piece measuring 8 11/16" long and weighing 2.7 T. oz., this pea (vegetable) or ice spoon is a rare form in most flatware lines.

The large, pierced bowl is the defining feature of these items, and that is the case with this. Nearly round at 3" back to front and 2 1/2" in diameter, the bowl is 5/8" deep. The piercing is patterned and functional as well as decorative, to aid in draining.

The pattern, "Old Standish," dates from 1901 and reflects the then growing sentiment... Click for details

Gorham

Dating from 1870, "Louis XIV" was an early line pattern in Gorham's stable of designs. Knowles produced a near match in its "Emperor" pattern, and George Sharp also offered a third, unnamed kindred design, all indicating this motif had as much appeal in its time as it still exhibits today.

The handle tip is an anthemion form with a shield reserve which in this case has an embellished, Old English "R" monogram. The area below this has raised, line scrolling set against a stippled background.... Click for details

Early Wood & Hughes

The New York firm of Wood & Hughes had roots that reached deep into the 19th century, beginning with a partnership with William Gale in 1833. That lasted until 1845 when the company went forward under just the two names. In time, it became a major firm, generating some of the most impressive silver produced during the second half of the century.

This coin silver gravy ladle, dating c. 1860, traces to the days when the firm was just beginning to gain its stride.

It is lengthy at 7 3/8"... Click for details

Clean Gorham

An early 20th century pattern, "Norfolk" aka "Villa Norfolk" stands in contrast to the exuberance of so much 19th century design. A simple, double-lined, multi-scroll motif, it is clean, direct, and understated in manner.

This example is a 9 5/8" long, nearly 2.7 T. oz., cake saw. It has a solid, flat handle, and all-silver blade. The blade has a saw-tooth upper edge, which is characteristic of this item.

Without a monogram or removal, this is in exceptionally fine condition. There... Click for details

Rare Crested Pair of Philadelphia Coin Silver Spoons - G. K. Childs

Offered is a rare example of early American coin silver flatware made in an English style, with proportions, weight and engraving appropriate to that taste. Crested American coin silver after the Revolution is for obvious reasons fairly uncommon; spoons made to match English sets are even more scarce. Another distinguishing feature of these spoons, in addition to the pattern and the engraved armorials of a dove of peace, is the unpublished mark for George K. Childs of Philadelphia. Hollan's...

Offered is a very rare example of the work and maker's mark of William Wates Keyworth, silversmith of Washington, DC. William is related the much better known Robert Keyworth - they are both buried in the Keyworth Family Vault in the Congressional Cemetery in Washington. However, I've not yet found the exact family relationship. William seems to have died in August, 1838; prior to that he was working as a watchmaker, silversmith and jeweler at his stand (shop) opposite Gadsby's Hotel (located... Click for details
