20170715-03   $65.00

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering. It may be that the die for this mark was damaged and re-cut to eliminate all but the last name. It is also just... Click for details

Early Philadelphia Coin Silver Sugar Tongs by Joseph Anthony of Phila.
Silver : Coin Silver : 18th and Early 19th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20170714-02   $67.50


click for details
Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears... Click for details

Hebbard & Moore "Engraved Ivy" Twist Handle Sterling Silver Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3172f   $32.00


click for details
A 6" long, .7 T. oz., this piece was likely an individual for ice cream spoon, although it could even have been a sugar.

Stamped "H & M" for the partnership of (Henry) Hebbard & (George) Moore, New York City, it dates 1861-65.

It is also stamped "Sterling," and while coin silver was still the dominant standard in this period, Hebbard retailed much of his output through Tiffany, which required sterling, so he likely produced with this in mind.

The design is singular, but... Click for details

The handle is slender and elongated, and is joined to a 2" diameter, round shell bowl with a scalloped rim and a flat bottom. This is finished on both sides with a bright gold wash that extends to the lower of two... Click for details

Very Rare Decorated Coin Silver Salt Spoon by Thomas Burger Ca.1805-06
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware : 18th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts

click for details
Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably... Click for details
