Offered is a scarce example of the mark of Reading, Pennsylvania jeweler Solomon Weida, whose biographical information appears below. This piece is engraved with a period script monogram and has a good clear maker's mark. It measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fairly good, with some surface wear and stubborn tarnish spots, and one small, shallow ding to the bowl. All in all a nice example of this man's wares!

Offered is a nice set of two early American coin silver teaspoons by Connecticut silversmith Nathaniel Shipman. These two spoons are each clearly marked and are also decorated with period engraved script monograms. These spoons each measure a little over 5 inches in length, and the pair weighs about 17 grams altogether. Condition of these spoons is fair to good overall, with some bumping to the bowls and stubborn tarnish spots, but no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely pair of early CT spoon...

Offered is an early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark of New York City silversmith John Foster, working circa 1809-18. This fin-less fiddle spoon probably dates to the earlier side of Foster's career, though his working life seems to have been somewhat short. The maker's mark on this spoon is clear and well-struck; it is sometimes attributed to the Virginia John Foster, but that attribution seems to have been definitively debunked by Catherine Hollan in her "Virginia Silve...

Offered is an interesting and heavy early American coin silver table spoon by scarce Connecticut silversmith Christopher Gallup; by style, this piece should date to about 1810 but could be a few years earlier or later. This piece bears Gallup's maker's mark of CG in a serrated rectangle, and is engraved with period script initials CMG. This spoon measures about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 55 grams. Condition is fair, with the bowl a bit out of round and having modest tip wear, but...

Offered is a nice English sterling silver tablespoon in the Old English pattern, fully hallmarked for London, 1896. There is also a clear maker's mark that I haven't researched. This piece measures about 8 3/4 inches in length, and weighs about 77 grams. This piece has no crest or monogram and shows no obvious sign of erasure. Condition is very good overall, with moderate surface wear and scuffing from normal use, but no dents, splits or repairs. This would make a nice server or a fill-in p...

Offered is a good set of six Hanoverian pattern English Georgian sterling silver teaspoons, dating to about 1760-70 and bearing the maker's mark of "TD" or "ID" in script. This may be a Thomas Dealtry mark, or that of someone else. These spoons are each engraved to the reverse with owner's initials - three are engraved E*R and three are engraved A*R. The engraving is by the same hand, so perhaps each spouse got their initials on half the set! At any rate, it appears these spoons all originat...

Offered is a useful assembled set of English Georgian sterling silver spoons, with bowls at some point fluted, perhaps by the Victorians, to make them useful for grapefruit, sorbets and ices, etc. There are eight spoons total, and most of them are about 5 3/4 inches in length; the total weight is about 145 grams. There are no monograms or crests, and any erasures are old as there is no obvious sign of erasure. Condition is good overall - seven are in used but decent condition, without splits ...

Offered is a piece one doesn't often see in the United States - a late 18th Century (ca. 1790-1800) orange spoon (a Dutch specialty) made by Diederik Willem Rethmeyer, working in Amsterdam circa 1785-1811. I am told the style of this piece makes the last decade of the 18th Century the most likely span of manufacture, though the date could be a little earlier or later. This piece measures about 5 5/16 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. It has stylized crossed laurels or similar decora...

Offered is a fine set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by Harrisburg craftsman Joseph Doll (1768-1818), who is listed in that town from 1795 to 1818, primarily working as a silversmith and clockmaker. Mr. Doll's silver is desirable and fairly uncommon, and is sought after. These teaspoons each measure about 5 1/2 inches in length, and the set weighs a total of 38 grams. Condition is excellent overall, with one spoon in perfect condition, and the other two in very good condition. ...

NOT FOR SALE
For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite poss...

Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark L&B in large block letters. This piece dates to about 1810-20, and the squared shoulders and style of monogram would fit Philadelphia as well as inland PA, MD and VA. The best fit I can make for this mark is the partnership of Larit (Laret) & Brechemin of Philadelphia, working circa 1816-18; it an attribution based on a sample size of one, but perhaps has a basis. This teaspoon measures about 5 3/8 inches i...

Offered is a wonderful early American coin silver stuffing spoon 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 gorgeous and in superb condition, with minimal wear and no dings, dents, splits or repairs. It is nicely engraved with a period script monogram and has a clear, well-...

Offered is a scarce pair of St. Charles, Missouri coin silver table spoons by jeweler and watchmaker Ludwig Meyer (or possibly his son, August(us) A. Meyer), working in St. Charles circa 1835-74. These tablespoons probably date to the 1850s but could be a few years earlier or later. This pair is faintly monogrammed, with what appears to be period script initials 'SAA'. Each spoon bears a well-struck maker's mark or retailer's mark and a town mark for St. Charles. These spoons each measure ab...

Offered is a very scarce example of a quite early American coin silver platter spoon or stuffing spoon, measuring about 12 3/8 inches in length and weighing about 122 grams, by Christian Cornelius of Philadelphia. Mr. Cornelius, who came to the U.S. from Holland, worked only briefly as a silversmith in the U.S., from about 1810-14.
