Coin Silver Master Butter Knife in Henry Hebbard's 1866
click for details
Offered is a very good and early example of an iconic American coin silver pattern - "Ivy" (also known as "Devil's Mask") by Henry Hebbard, and first patented in 1866. A few years after Hebbard's initial introduction of this pattern, the dies and rights were purchased by Whiting, and most pieces in this pattern bear that firm's marks. However, this piece has the manufacturer's mark of Henry Hebbard, and was likely produced in the late 1860s. It also has a period engraved script monogram, and... Click for details

Pair of Irish Provincial Silver Teaspoons Circa 1820
click for details
Offered is a good pair of early 19th Century Irish provincial silver teaspoons, probably made in Cork, but marked only STERLING and lacking a maker's mark. These are certainly early 19th Century and Irish, and the specific maker could perhaps be determined by comparing the dies for STERLING used by the various Cork silversmiths. In any event, these teaspoons are nice examples of nearly 200-year old provincial Irish silver that can be used on a day-to-day basis. Each spoon bears an engraved... Click for details

Philadelphia Coin Silver Salt Spoon w/Rare Mark for Michael Gouiran

Offered is a very rare example of the wares of Philadelphia silversmith and jeweler Michael Gouiran, working in that city circa 1820-33. I've never seen another piece with Gouiran's mark, despite seeking out Philadelphia silver intensively for over fifteen years. The mark on this piece will likely be used in any update to Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" as there may be no other surviving example. This salt spoon is engraved with a period script monogram of "B" and bears a rubbed but... Click for details

St. Joseph, Missouri Coin Silver Soup Ladle - Agricultural Soc. Prize!

Offered is a gorgeous American coin silver soup ladle from St. Joseph, MO silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Charles Edwin Baldwin, Sr., circa 1855-65. Although Mr. Baldwin moved to St. Joseph circa 1850 and was the first silversmith in that town, the ladle should be from 1855 or later due to the engraving, which provides "N.W.A.S." over "Mo.", denoting the North-western Agricultural Society (of Missouri).

This Society was one of several formed by an 1855 Act of the Missouri State... Click for details

This mark belongs to one of the Pitman family of silversmiths, working in Providence, RI. I'm not sure of the particular silversmith, but it is likely either John K. Pitman or Samuel Pitman, based on style. It could also possibly be the work of Benjamin Pitman. It should date to about 1815. This piece bears a period engraved script... Click for details

Offered is a lovely American coin silver berry scoop or spoon, with gilding to the front of the bowl (about 80 percent remains) but not to the reverse. This piece is marked only COIN, so I am not sure of the manufacturer.

Whiting

Introduced in 1885, Whiting's "Lily of the Valley" immediately established itself as an outstanding pattern, and has remained sought after ever since.

Sculptural in nature, it features a raised stalk of blossoms enveloped by leaves, which form the margins of the handle. The ground behind the blossoms is lined, again representative of the leaves, and this also serves as an enhancing design element.

In sum, it reflects influences from the innovative design sensibilities of the Aesthetic... Click for details
