14 1/4" Coin Ladle William Mannerback Reading PA c.1820

This large ladle, well wrought by the most prominent silversmith of Reading, Pennslvania, is at first sight startling in its elegance.

Mug with uniquely American agricultural motif

In 1825, the Erie Canal opened, sending to NYC and beyond the agricultural riches of Ohio and ultimately the entire midwest. For 10 years -- from 1825-35 -- this cornucopia was celebrated in the arts, including the art of silvermaking. The basket-of-flowers and sheaf-of-wheat flatware patterns are examples; so too is this mug with its band of farm produce and equipment -- corn-filled wagon, barn, windmill, beehives, farm house, corn crib, scythe, rake, and a sheaf-of-wheat design repeated 10 t...

In her work, "Silversmiths of Lancaster, Pennsylvannia, 1730-1850," Vivian Gerstell describes Charles Hall (1742-1783) as a "prominent citizen as well as silversmith." She further remarks that he "played a prominent role in Lancaster during the Revolution. In 1774, he was a member of the Committee of Correspondence and of the Committee of Observation." This modest, and rather primitive looking, small spoon bears his identified "C. Hall" on the reverse, along with a second mark which is illegib... Click for details

W. Gale Coin Silver 3 Piece Tea Set
click for details
Coin silver tea set by William Gale of NYC c. 1816-1827. Gale worked c. 1816-1866 but always with another or others after 1827 and with a joint mark as far as I can determine, thus the attribution to 1816-27. The pieces are engraved on the right hand side with a "W' in script, but the monograms are quite rubbed. The base of the teapot has an old repair with silver solder which is barely noticeable. A very nice set.
