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 interesting, fairly late American silver master salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes (1758-1820). This piece has a period engraved script monogram and is a standard circa 1810-20 fiddle pattern piece. The interesting part about this salt spoon is that it exhibits the remains of die-struck decoration to the bowl - something not often seen with salt spoons. This may have been a bird or some other device - one would have to take a look at what remains visible... Click for details

A Boston firm rooted in the Arts & Crafts tradition, Tuttle was known for its old English reproduction items, as well as its novel marking system.

The firm adopted the custom of identifying the year of manufacture of its pieces by imprinting them with the initials, set in a crescent, of the sitting President of the United States, beginning with the term of Calvin Coolidge.

This 5 1/8" long, quite heavy at approximately 1.7 T. oz., and consequently heavy gauge, sauce or cream ladle is... Click for details

Lincoln & Foss, Boston, Large Sterling Silver (Chicken) Tongs
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3406f   $265.00

click for details
Measuring 7 7/8" long and weighing just over 3.2 T. oz., this pair of tongs are large enough in relative terms to be described as immense. They may be an old implement that is sometimes referenced as (fried) chicken tongs.

They are stamped "Lincoln & Foss" for the mid 19th century (1848-57) Boston firm, and quite unusual for the date, "Sterling," rather than the expected coin silver.

The scroll pattern that appears on each leg is one that was probably produced by Farrington & Hunnewell,... Click for details

Towle LAFAYETTE nut spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2300   $90.00

click for details
length 8 1/2 inches, weight 2.55 Troy ounces, monogrammed as shown, fine condition.

Other pages on this internet show a scrawny 5 1/2 inch item which they're trying to pawn off as the nut spoon. We beg to differ. And if you'll allow me to indulge myself in some shameless salesmanship, I will state that pierced servers are eminently useful, and the pointed antique patterns fit in well with any others.

2299   $100.00

click for details
Philadelphia circa 1825, length 3 1/2 inches, weight .81 oz. Troy, monogrammed "JLH" in period script with flourishes. With pointed, chamfered shoulders and a flat portion at tip, these are in excellent condition and of above average quality.

Often referred to as "snuff spoons," they may also have been intended for use in children's play. We'll stay safe and simply call them miniature.

Dating from the 1850s, and measuring 8 7/8" long and weighing approximately 1.9 T. oz., this coin silver berry or other serving spoon is stamped "P.L.K." for the Philadelphia silversmith Peter L. Krider.
