Norfolk, VA Coin Silver Spoon by Charles Frederick Greenwood, c1847-65
Silver : Coin Silver : Southern

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180102-03   $60.00

click for details
Offered is a good and scarce Southern coin silver teaspoon with the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Charles Frederick Greenwood, living in Edenton, North Carolina in 1846 and then opening a small silversmith and jeweler's shop in Norfolk, VA in 1847. This spoon bears the earlier of his two marks, and he seems to have adopted sterling fairly early, so it would most likely date to the 1847-65 period, probably on the earlier end. This spoon is engraved with a period script monogram of 'FP' and... Click for details

Wendt "Moresque" Sterling Silver Croquette Server
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3368f   On Hold

click for details
Fully emblematic of the style, Wendt's "Moresque" was produced in 1873 during the Persian Revival period in silver design that generated such landmark patterns as Whiting's "Arabesque," Gorham's "Hindostanee," and Tiffany's "Persian," among many others.

"Moresque" is arguably the most complex of any iteration in this mode, and within its own line had variations.

Some examples have upturned and others downturned, handles. The pattern itself incorporates a plain, circular reserve... Click for details

Gorham & Webster "Reverse Tipt" Six Coin Silver Teaspoons, Immaculate
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3366f   $135.00

click for details
Dating to the earliest decades of Gorham's history, these six, matched, coin silver, spoons are marked "Gorham & Webster," for a partnership that traces to 1831-37.

Each one measures 7 1/2" long, which is an unusual size by contemporary convention in that it is lengthier than a dessert spoon but not quite as long as a tablespoon. In their time, when large scale was favored, these would have served as standard place pieces.

They have a substantial feel, although they weigh marginally... Click for details

Offered is a very fine and scarce pair of early American coin silver tablespoons marked with a standard mark of "5 FRANCS", by the noted Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson, working circa 1825-50. Surprisingly little is known about this firm, despite its prominence and the great numbers of spoons and other pieces that survive bearing one of the firm's marks.
