Offered is a lovely set of four early American coin silver table spoons by Rhode Island silversmith Walter Cornell (b. 1729 - d. 1801), working either in Providence, according to some publications, or in Newport, according to others, between 1780 and 1801. It is unclear what he was doing prior to 1780, as it would be unusual to commence business as a silversmith and clockmaker at the age of 50. It is possible that at different periods he was working in Newport and Providence; however, late in... Click for details
Offered is a lovely and very early American coin silver table spoon by New York silversmith Peter Vergereau. According to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:
"Peter Vergereau is probably the individual born into New York City’s French community and baptised at the Église Françoise à la Nouvelle York on August 21, 1700. He was granted freeman status in 1721, which would have been the logical time for him to begin practicing his craft after an average apprenticeship. Vergereau was married... Click for details

Offered is a lovely pair of late 18th Century Rhode Island coin silver table spoons by noted silversmith Thomas Arnold (b. 1735 - d. 1828), working in Newport between about 1760 and 1817. These tablespoons are decorated with period engraved script monograms, the placement and style of which closely relates to the engraving on other Thomas Arnold spoons of the period. These spoons by style should date to about 1785-1800, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon is marked with... Click for details
Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon decorated in a feather-edge Old English pattern style, with a period block monogram and worn die-struck shell decoration. This piece does not appear to have a maker's mark, but by style can be dated to the 1780-90 period, give or take a couple of years. It measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some modest tip wear and some very small dimples to the bowl. The handle... Click for details
Offered is an excellent early American coin silver dessert spoon by noted Lancaster, PA silversmith William Haverstick, Sr. (1756-1823), circa 1790-1800. Although many teaspoons by William Haverstick Sr. and Jr. (who used the same mark) have been observed, and a fair number of tablespoons, dessert spoons are much more rare. This particular piece measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 35 grams. It is graced with a very well executed period script engraved monogram of "AC" and... Click for details
Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is... Click for details
For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite... Click for details
Offered is an early American coin silver tablespoon by noted New York silversmith Daniel Van Voorhis, circa 1780-90. This piece could have been made when Van Voorhis was working in New York, in Princeton, NJ, or in Philadelphia. It appears by style to date to the 1780s. This piece measures about 8 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 54 grams. In addition to a maker's mark (full name) and pseudo-hallmark, this piece is decorated with engraving including a period script monogram. Condition... Click for details
