After 1846, Albert continued to work as a silversmith, but moved his shop to Bangor and worked there until about 1880. This piece was almost certainly made during Albert's Portland years, and the mark of TITCOMB in a serrated punch could have been used by him... Click for details

York, PA Coin Silver Teaspoon by John Brenise Ca. 1825

Offered is a scarce York, Pennsylvania coin silver teaspoon by John Brenise (1793 - 1846), who would have been working independently by about 1815 but for whom records are spotty. He is generally described as working in the 1830s and later, but this spoon is clearly earlier in style (probably circa 1825), and there is no reason to suppose he would have had a decade or more hiatus in his silversmithing and clockmaking career after his apprenticeship was completed. This teaspoon has an engraved... Click for details

Offered is a good set of four Ohio coin silver spoons by little-known Cincinnati silversmith and jeweler Abraham Palmer, working circa 1833 into the 1860s. Palmer apprenticed in the house of Samuel Kirk & Co. in Baltimore, and commenced business on his own in Ohio around 1833.

Gravelle. By style these tongs could have been made in either locale. They measure about 6 inches in length and weigh about 30 grams. Condition is fair,... Click for details
