Offered is an excellent and very early example of the work of the Moulton family of silversmiths, centered in and around Newburyport, Massachusetts. The mark on this spoon is typically associated with Joseph Moulton III (b. 1744, d. 1816), who flourished between 1764 and 1810. The earliest of Joseph Moulton III's work is in this form also used by his father, with a pronounced midrib and a shell heel. This piece features a legible maker's mark and a period engraved set of block initials. It m...

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver teaspoons by little-known Carlisle jeweler and silversmith Thomas Conlyn, who may have worked a bit in Philadelphia after finishing his apprenticeship with Charles Canby of Delaware, but who is known primarily as a Carlisle silversmith. This pair of spoons is nicely engraved "CAG" in period script, and each spoon has a great strike of Conlyn's maker's mark, as well as a leaf-type journeyman's mark or pseudo-hallmark. Conlyn's work is quite uncom...

Offered is a very uncommon item in Philadelphia coin silver - a sheaf of wheat pattern teaspoon. Aside from some sheaf of wheat pieces by R. & W. Wilson, this pattern and style of decoration is almost unknown in Philadelphia. This piece bears one of the maker's marks used by Thomas Whartenby, along with an eagle pseudo-hallmark. It has a very clear maker's mark, and also has a slightly faded period engraved script monogram. I haven't seen another decorated example by Whartenby, though he had...

This piece is graced with a period engraved script monogram with nice features, and has a legible maker's mark of G.WILSON in a rectangular punch, as well as a quality mark of STANDARD in a banner.

Offered is a good and rare early American coin silver spoon bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Philip Price, Jr., a clockmaker and watchmaker who entered business in Philadelphia in about 1812 and who stayed in the watchmaking and allied trades line until about 1825, when he turned to printing and other pursuits. This piece probably dates to the 1820s by style. It is graced with a period engraved script monogram and has a very clear strike of Price's mark. The mark on this spoon w...

Offered is a very rare example of the mark and work of Frederick W. Parrott (b. 1829 - d. 1917), a jeweler and watchmaker working in Philadelphia in the late 1840s, in Trenton, NJ between 1850-58, again in Philadelphia from 1858-60, in Bordertown, NJ for some time, and then in Philadelphia for the rest of his career. This spoon probably dates to his first Philadelphia period but could be from the Trenton years. It has an extremely clear and well-struck maker's mark of F.W.PARROTT in a rectangu...

Offered is a wonderful example of inland Pennsylvania silver at its finest - the work of silversmith John D. Haverstick (b. 1783 - d. 1853), part of the famous Lancaster family of silversmiths, and working in that town from about 1805-1809 and then in Carlisle approximately 1809 to 1825. Sometime after that he moved to Erie and was still there in 1850; it isn't clear whether any of his silver was made in Erie as by style it all could have been made 1825 or earlier.

This gorgeous piece proba...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon circa 1800-09 bearing the mark of Philadelphia silversmith John J. Parry, in this case as a retailer in that another mark (of the maker), which appears to be that of Charles Moore, is scratched out. This piece also has a worn period engraved script monogram.

Offered is a good early 19th Century American coin silver teaspoon by the celebrated Philadelphia partnership of Lewis & Smith. Harvey Lewis and Joseph D. Smith worked in partnership from about 1805 to 1811, and produced some of the most finely executed and beautifully engraved silver of their era. Many examples of their excellent holloware and flatware are extant in public collections. While this spoon may not rise quite to that level, it is still a good example and one that could be used on...

Offered is a truly lovely early American coin silver table spoon circa 1760-80, engraved with period block initials to the reverse and struck once with a maker's mark of SW, which appears to be one of the marks of Silas White (born circa 1737 in Southampton, NY, died 1798 in New York, NY), as this spoon bears a very distinctive drop seen on other spoons attributed to White, including one at Winterthur. Please see all of the photos. This piece measures about eight inches in length and weighs ab...
