Superb Fiddlethread Long-Handled Condiment Spoon by Thomas Fletcher
Silver : Coin Silver

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180106-09   $75.00


click for details
Offered is a very sought-after long-handled condiment spoon from the heavy and luxurious American coin silver fiddlethread pattern made by celebrated Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Fletcher, circa 1827-42. Fletcher's fiddlethread is probably the height of quality for this pattern in America prior to the Civil War - it is uniformly excellent, and heavy. It virtually always has a well-done period script monogram to the reverse ("CM" on this piece), making it quite possible to build a full... Click for details

Offered is a very good group of early American coin silver teaspoons, all three by James Black (working circa 1796-1819), but with different workmen's marks, and with two different maker's marks for Black.

This spoon is engraved with a period script monogram of 'FP' and... 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
