Offered is a lovely pair of antique English Georgian sterling silver sugar tongs, which are unusual in that the maker's mark is struck inside one grip, and the hallmarks are struck inside the other grip. The maker's mark is "BW" in a rectangular punch; I've not traced this maker, and it appears to be an uncommon mark. These tongs are nicely decorated with spiral engraving on the outsides of the grips, and good engraved decoration along the edges of the body. This piece measures about 5 1/4 in...

Offered is a lovely Channel Islands coin silver spoon from the island of Jersey and the hand of noted silversmith Charles William Quesnel (1790-1856), circa 1810-20. This piece is scarce because for whatever reason, teaspoons are less common than tablespoons from the Channel Islands, at least in the style and period of this piece. This spoon is in a recognizable and largely unique Channel Islands style, and includes a three-letter block monogram typical of these spoons. Quesnel's maker's mark...

Offered is a rare example of West Virginia coin silver spoons bearing the mark of John William Mather, jeweler of Parkersburg (fl. 1868-75). The marks on these tablespoons are very interesting - instead of a COIN mark for fineness, there is a mark of SILVER, and the maker's mark/retailer's mark of Mather is quite nice, with JOHN W.MATHER in a banner over PARKERSBURG.W.VA in a shaped punch, flanked by a star. The marks on these spoons are clear and well-struck, and each table spoon also has a p...
