Classical, Ram's Head, Columnar, Silver Candlesicks

These four, matched, silver candlesticks are estate items with a continuous history in one family that traces to the 19th century. The particulars of the origin of these, however, are lost to memory, which leaves full identification inferential.

They are probably silverplate and probably English. Each piece has three symbol touch marks on the lower edge, but these are heavily rubbed. While perhaps recognizable to a knowing eye, not so for this listing.

Each piece stands 10" tall and... Click for details

Fayetteville, North Carolina Teaspoon by John Selph
click for details
Offered is a fine and very early example of the work of Fayetteville, NC silversmith John Selph, working circa 1807 to 1838. Selph's work is quite scarce, and this piece is the earliest I've seen by style. The square shoulders and tapered transitional handle put this in the first decade of Selph's career, most likely somewhere between 1807-15. This piece bears a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram that is a little rubbed but appears to be ERW. Condition is decent... Click for details

Rare Anthony Rasch Teaspoon Marked STERLING SILR.

Offered is a fine early American coin silver tea spoon by noted Philadelphia and New Orleans silversmith Anthony Rasch. This spoon is interesting in that it is one of the few pieces of flatware Rasch marked STERLING SILR.; only a few Philadelphia and Baltimore silversmiths seem to have been doing this in the first two decades of the 19th Century.

The maker's mark is very well struck and clear, and the period engraved script monogram is well executed. The bird (pictured) is a dove, and is fairly well preserved. Condition overall is fair,...
