Rare Long-Handled Coin Silver Condiment Spn, Shurtz & Lyon, Baltimore

Offered is a rare example of the output of the short-lived partnership of Baltimore jewelers William D. Shurtz and Ira C. Lyon working in Baltimore at 107 Baltimore Street between 1845 and 1846. Perhaps because of the brevity of their partnership, these men are not well recorded working together; however, they published announcements of the commencement and the dissolution of their partnership in the Baltimore Sun, which I can supply if interested. Shurtz & Lyon was succeeded by Blake & Lyon... Click for details

A 6 3/8" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., piece, this sugar spoon has a generously-proportioned shell form bowl.

Dating circa 1863, it is an example of William B. Durgin's "Medallion." Based on classical figures, this motif was popular among manufacturers of the period.

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

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by Dedham, Massachusetts silversmith Benjamin Bussey (1757-1782), whose work is rarely seen. He worked from 1778 to an unknown date - this pair of tongs dates to about 1785-95, so at least to that period. He apparently moved to Boston around 1792, and may have shifted his focus at that time. This piece measures about 6 3/4 inches in length, and weighs about 34 grams. The period engraved script monogram of "MS" is surrounded... Click for details

Offered is a nice American coin silver long-handled salt spoon or condiment spoon, circa 1810-30, marked D.OLIVER in a rectangular punch.
