Important Decorated Basket with Flowers Spoon by Thomas Shields c.1770
click for details
Offered is an important early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Shields (working circa 1765-94). This spoon's decoration, like many of my Philadelphia spoons, was featured in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (see page 264). The die-struck decoration is certainly very well preserved, as is the maker's mark for Shields. Overall, condition is fair to good, with some tip wear but no dents, splits or repairs. This piece measures about 4 7/8 inches in... Click for details

Unusual Philadelphia Pictureback Teaspoon Circa 1790-1800

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver picture back teaspoon with a die-struck decoration to the back of the bowl that is unusual. The decoration is an abstraction of a shell, and almost looks like a splash of water drops or even of stars. This piece is unmarked but is stylistically closely related to marked Philadelphia pieces. This spoon's decoration, like many of my Philadelphia spoons, was featured in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (see page 259). This spoon is engraved... Click for details

Offered is a lovely and scarce early American coin silver birdback teaspoon by Philadelphia silversmith Henry Andrews, working circa 1785 to 1800.

This spoon, which measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams, features one of the two known birdback designs used by Andrews. The die-struck bird is in very good shape,...

Offered is an exceptional early American coin silver dessert spoon or large teaspoon by important Philadelphia silversmith John Germon, working from about 1782 to 1825 or so. This piece measures 6 3/8 inches in length, and weighs about 20 grams, so it is quite a bit larger than typical tea or coffee spoons of the period - it dates to the 1782-95 timeframe by style. However, it could simply be a very large teaspoon. This piece has a finely executed period engraved script monogram, a... Click for details

Offered is a fine and scarce 18th century French silver soup or punch ladle, dating to the era before the French Revolution, probably around 1784-89. The ladle is hallmarked with a clear maker's mark, and two marks of a ladder-back chair, which appears to signify the ladle comes from the Arras (Lille) area.
