Offered is a nice George III English sterling silver fish server fully hallmarked for London, 1802 and made by a maker using the mark SI or IS. This piece has a nice period engraved armorial of a rooster and clear, well-struck marks. It measures just a little under 12 inches in length and weighs about 128 grams. Condition is fair, as it has some surface wear from a lot of polishing (though not a machine buffing, at least in the recent past), probably from someone using a little to much elbow...

This mark is attributed by Ohio collectors to David Bush Anderson, Sr., though this has not been published so far as I know. If you have a different attribution, I would welcome the information. I have found a few spoons bearing this mark... Click for details

Gorham Martelé shaped rectangular bowl
click for details
Let's take a moment to reflect upon why a dealer, or at least Yours Truly, chooses to add an item to inventory.

Over the years, we've handled many many pieces of Martelé, and if you dear reader will forgive me for a bit of crudeness, most of them are "trashed." Specifically, the detail is severely worn away, leaving the beauty of the overall design still appreciable but no longer intact.

Why? Because Gorham made a bit of a bargain with the devil, and used .950 or .9584 silver to... Click for details

This cup has a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark for Semken, and is very well engraved with the dedication inscription, which is touching. I have rarely seen a piece of coin silver hollowware, especially a handled cup, in better condition. There is little in the way of signs of use... Click for details

Offered is a nice example of American coin silver bearing the maker's mark of little-known Baltimore silversmith Charles H. Pepar, who was advertising in the Baltimore Sun in the 1840s. The book "Silver in Maryland" describes his birthdate as about 1812, and notes he was working at least from 1845. The fineness mark of 10.15 on these would not have been seen after about 1860, and the style of these spoons is consistent with the 1840-60 period. Each spoon has a legible maker's mark and a period... Click for details
