Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by prolific maker Osborn Conrad, working in Philadelphia circa 1841-51. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. It has a clear maker's mark and a large, somewhat simplified but period monogram, done by a novice engraver. Condition is good overall, with some bumps to the bowl but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable spoon!

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith William Seal, born and perhaps trained in Virginia but known to be working alone and in partnership in Philadelphia between 1810 and 1822. He lived until 1853 but the style of his silver does not post-date about 1820. This piece is in good condition overall, with moderate wear and no dents, splits or repairs. It is nicely engraved with a period script monogram and has a legible maker's mark as well as Seal...

Offered is a very good set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Amable Brasier (b. 1764 - d. 1842), working in that city between about 1795 and 1826. These three teaspoons are in a fin-less fiddle pattern and probably date to between 1800 and 1810. Each piece is expertly engraved 'EW' in period script. Each spoon also bears Brasier's maker's mark - one mark is rubbed but legible, and the other two are clear and well-struck. These spoons each measure...

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver teaspoons marked R.Wilson in script, for Robert Wilson, silversmith of New York and then Philadelphia, prior to his death in 1824. Mr. Wilson's sons, Robert and William, went on to great success after Robert Sr.'s death, establishing one of the most prolific silver manufacturing operations in the first half of the 19th Century. Robert Wilson Sr.'s work is typically marked with a maker's mark of RW in an oval, and is usually recognizably New ...

Offered is an excellent pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith John Owen, working circa 1802-31. These teaspoons are each initialed "SA" in period script, and each has a clear, well-struck maker's mark of J.OWEN in a serrated rectangular punch. These spoons measure about 5 inches in length and the pair weighs about 21 grams altogether. Condition is excellent, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of this man's output!

Offered is a nice pair of late 18th Century American coin silver sugar tongs marked only with a maker's mark of S.B - a mark given in Belden's "American Silversmiths" to Col. Standish Barry of Baltimore, MD. See Belden, page 49, mark d. for Barry. The strength of the attribution to Barry in Belden is based on stylistic similarities to known Belden work, and the relatively small number of potential craftsmen with the right initials working in the right time period. In any event, these sugar to...

Offered is a nice pair of 18th Century silver sugar tongs dating by style to the 1760s or early 1770s, bearing only a maker's mark of T.H in a rectangle. This maker's mark is fairly crude and doesn't look like a British mark, but the proportions of this pair of tongs look more British than American to me. So, are these tongs British, and dodge paying duty? Were they perhaps made provincially within the UK proper, far away from an assay office? Could they be from somewhere else in the Empire,...

Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon that by style appears to date to the 1750-70 timeframe; the maker's mark ends with an "E" that looks an awful lot like one of Samuel Edwards' marks, but I can't make out the first letter. The outline of the mark is right for Samuel Edwards as well, but the drop on the spoon is different from those I've seen used by Edwards. So, probably a different maker. Does anyone have a theory? This piece is engraved with block...

NOT FOR SALE
Another mystery piece and mark, at least to me! Perhaps I've overlooked something obvious about this crested silver cream ladle, circa 1810-25, but I am assuming it to be American coin silver, probably from the New England region. However, I've had no luck tracking down a potential maker, despite a good maker's mark with relatively uncommon initials. The maker's mark is a crude "SL", indicating perhaps more provincial or small-town manufacture, though this is not dispositive. This piece meas...

Offered is a very rare early American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia silversmith Peter Gallard, working circa 1800-22. This piece by style should date to the 1800-10 period; see my other listings for a teaspoon that is probably from the second decade of Mr. Gallard's career. This spoon has a clear maker's mark and a good period engraved script monogram of "EG". This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition overall is very good, with modest surface wear...

Offered is a very sought-after table 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 ("SHS" on this piece), making it quite possible to build a full service in this pattern...

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. The marks on these spoons were used in the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan - the definitive reference on the subject. These spoons range in date from about 1805 for the transitional fiddle spoon without shoulders, to about 1815-19 for the fiddle spoon with pointed shoulders, which...

Offered is a good American coin silver teaspoon by the partnership of Jehu and William L. Ward, working in Philadelphia from the late 1830s through Jehu's death in 1850; silver with the partnership's maker's marks continued to be offered for a couple of years thereafter. The mark on this particular spoon is uncommon and was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan. This piece also has a good period engraved script monogram. This spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and w...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by jeweler and silversmith Samuel W. Pepper, son of the much more well-known Henry J. Pepper, silversmith of Wilmington and Philadelphia. Samuel worked only a year or two in Delaware, spending the majority of his career in Philadelphia. His spoons are usually marked as here - just PEPPER, incuse. This piece has a clear mark and a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is g...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver dessert spoon by S. M. Hopper of Philadelphia, working at 66 Chesnut Street when this spoon was made, per the maker's mark and address mark on the spoon. That indicates the spoon was made between 1847 and 1856. The marks on this particular spoon were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece also has a nicely engraved period script monogram. It measures about 7 inches in length and weighs about 27 grams. Conditi...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver teaspoon by well-known Philadelphia jeweler and spoon manufacturer Phineas Fries, working there from 1837 through the 1870s or later. This spoon most likely dates to the 1840s or 1850s but could be a little later. It is engraved with a period script monogram and is struck with a clear maker's mark and, unusually, a COIN standard mark - not common for this firm. The marks on this particular spoon were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Cat...

Offered is a nice fluted-bowl American coin silver master salt spoon by well-known Philadelphia makers Butler & McCarty. This piece probably dates to the 1850s. It is uncommon in that it bears the initials-only maker's mark the partnership used infrequently on flatware, and more often on spectacles and other smalls. This piece also has a period engraved script monogram. It measures about four inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some small dings to the ...
