Coin Silver Teaspoon by Lucas Ryerson

Offered is a scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Lucas Ryerson (1771 - 1855).

He is often described as having spent the majority of his working life in York, PA, moving back to New Jersey only around 1840 to continue working as a silversmith and clockmaker. However, this seems to be contradicted by the known events and listings in his life that took place largely... Click for details
