Coin Silver Teaspoon by Granville W. Lukens of Philadelphia and NJ

Offered is a good American coin silver spoon probably made in Philadelphia circa 1850 and retailed by Granville W. Lukens, a Quaker born in Bucks County who appears to have been a peddler/merchant rather than a trained silversmith. After a short period in Philadelphia around 1850, he seems to have settled in Burlington County, NJ. The mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. ... Click for details

Offered is a rare example of the output of the short-lived partnership of Baltimore jewelers William D. Shurtz and Ira C. Lyon working in Baltimore at 107 Baltimore Street between 1845 and 1846.
