20190526-03   Sold


click for details
Offered is a scarce example of the work of Nashville, Tennessee silversmith John M. Smith, circa 1835. Smith had at least two maker's marks, and probably worked for a number of years, but seems to have advertised in only one instance. This piece bears what is probably the later of his two marks, and the punch was worn and chipped by the point this spoon was struck with the mark, so perhaps toward the end of his working career, around 1835. This tablespoon measures about 8 7/8 inches in length... Click for details

An unusual and highly specialized place piece, American melon forks followed after a form that evolved in mid 19th century France. Few American makers produced them, so they are truly hard to find items.

It has sculpted margins decorated in scroll, leaf, flower, beading and lattice detail. The pattern at one and the same time appears Victorian and Elizabethan in nature.

This example is a 6 5/8" long, heavy at approximately 1.4 T. oz., tea or... Click for details
