Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver spectacles by the important McAllister family of opticians and spectacle makers - in this case, the pair matches catalog drawings from the 1850s and 1860s, during the period the firm was headed by the William Y McAllister and Thomas H. McAllister, and was known as McAllister and Brother. The McAllister family are the most important makers in this field, and their spectacles are not uncommon, but are desirable.

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver eyeglasses or spectacles by noted silversmith Henry Sargeant, working in Springfield, MA circa 1825-40, and in Hartford, CT circa 1840--60. This piece dates to circa 1825-40, given that the frame is marked SPRINGFIELD below H.SARGEANT, and so it dates to circa 1825-40. This pair of spectacles measures about 4 5/8 inches in length, and weighs about 32 grams. Condition is good overall, with the frame in good shape, and the lenses with some ...

Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon marked T.&L.CRANSON in a serrated rectangular punch, circa 1830-50. The T. Cranson in this mark is probably the same person as the T.P. Cranson working in Poplar Ridge, New York (see my other listings for a pair of spoons marked T.P.CRANSON and POPLAR RIDGE). That's about all I can surmise about this piece, which has a rubbed but legible maker's mark, and a period engraved owner's name of P. Jennings. This piece measures about 6 5/16 inches in lengt...

Offered is a pair of American coin silver eyeglasses marked .HYDE in a rectangular punch, perhaps for James Nevins Hyde of New York and New Orleans, or perhaps more likely for James Hyde of Auburn, New York. There are a few other possibilities with the surname Hyde who were silversmiths or jewelers, and could be possibilities. This pair of spectacles measures about 4 5/8 inches across the temples, and weighs about 25 grams. Condition is fair at best, given that one arm is missing the loop (se...

This spoon is an interesting mystery, that might be easily solved, or not. If you can provide a definitive identification of the maker of this spoon, with a reference, you will receive a nice coin silver spoon in good condition, or $15 off your next order with me. This spoon resembles some spoons by William Moulton, and may be by him, though I've not located a reference to this specific maker's mark. It could also be by someone else. The heel is quite specific. The spoon appears dirty, but ...

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver dessert spoon by noted Norfolk, Virginia silversmith Joseph M. Freeman, with period engraving of "Dr. Willson" over "USN". This piece probably dates to the 1830s or 1840s, and Dr. Willson was presumably a Navy surgeon attached to the Atlantic Fleet at Norfolk at that time. Given the Navy's extensive records and the availability of resources at Norfolk and at the Navy Museum in Washington, it is quite likely Dr. Willson could be tracked down and pinpointed...

Offered is a lovely early silver tablespoon circa 1780-1800, attributed to Danish silversmith Soren Christian Bonde, working in Svendborg in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. He seems to have been born around 1751, and this spoon by style should date to about 1780-1800. This piece bears three legible maker's marks of SCB in a large punch, and also has a period engraved feathered script monogram that is more North American in style than is usually seen in Danish silver. It is possible th...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon bearing manufacturing marks of Hotchkiss & Schreuder, and a retailer's mark of E. P. Burt - perhaps a descendant of the famous Burt family of silversmiths, perhaps not. An Erastus Park Burt (b. 1816) worked as a jeweler and dry goods store owner in Oswego, NY in the 1850s and 60s - this is probably the E. P. Burt who marked this spoon. Mr. Burt was also the city treasurer of the city of Oswego six separate times in the 1850s and 1860s.
