2620f   $95.00

Measuring 6 3/8" long and substantial weight at over 1.8 T. oz., this pair of tongs is marked with a crowned harp, Hibernia, and "GN" in an oval. These letters are ascribed to George Nangle of Dublin, whose dates are either side of 1800.

The elongated cup grips have high shoulders that, which, along with the length of the arms, have beveled edges. The arch... Click for details

While this 4 3/4" long, heavy at 1.4 T. oz., bon bon is akin to parallel items produced by such large manufacturers as Gorham and Whiting, this comes from an unexpected source, namely Roger Williams Silver Company of Providence, Rhode Island.

A successor to Howard Sterling Silver Co. c. 1900 according to Rainwater in her "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers," it merged in 1903 with Mauser and Hayes & MacFarland to form the Mount Vernon Company, so the Roger Williams moniker was... Click for details

Unusual Coin Silver Teaspoon by Joseph Shoemaker of Philadelphia
Silver : Coin Silver

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20150822-01   $15.00


click for details
Offered is an unusual example of an early American coin silver spoon made in the workshop of Joseph Shoemaker but also struck with a large mark of a "T" - the mark could be a journeyman's, but is so large and placed in such a way as to undercut Shoemaker's maker's mark. As such it is unlikely the mark was on the spoon when it was first marked by Shoemaker. It is possible the spoon was resold by someone else, but the most likely explanation is that it was an inventory stamp within the family. ... Click for details

Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of Charles and George Fletcher of Philadelphia, brothers to the famous silversmith and proprietor Thomas Fletcher, whose firm Fletcher and Gardiner would set the standard for monumental silver for a time in Philadelphia.

Their run in business together appears to have been rather unsuccessful; aside from this teaspoon, I have observed... Click for details
