Offered is a nice Kentucky silver table fork from the Louisville establishment of Gustav Adolph Schultz (b. 1842, d. 1892), engraved for the Pate family of that city. Please see my other listings for three tablespoons and a teaspoon from the same service. This table fork measures about 7 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 49 grams. It bears a manufacturer's mark for Wood & Hughes and a retailer's mark of G.A.SCHULTZ. It probably dates to the very early 1870s. Condition is good overall, w...

Offered is a nice American coin silver sauce ladle by F. Franks & Co., and also marked DOLLARS in reference to the standard of silver used. This piece has a somewhat worn period engraved script monogram, and a legible maker's mark. The mark denoting fineness is very well struck. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. Condition is very good overall, with moderate surface wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a nice small serving piece in coin s...

Offered is an excellent set of five hard-to-find American coin silver dessert spoons in the fiddle and thread pattern, by Robert and William Wilson of Philadelphia, working circa 1820s-1850s. These spoons each bear the Wilsons' maker's mark and a city mark of PHILADA, and each has a well done period engraved script monogram. Please take a look at the various pictures. These spoons measure between 7 1/8 inches and 7 1/4 inches in length, and the total weight of the group is about 226 grams. Th...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Wilmington silversmith James Guthre (1796-1877), who was working by about 1820 and continued to work for a fairly long period of time. Guthre was fairly prolific and this piece is a good example of his work. It bears a clear strike of his maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition overall is good, with a very minor, shallow dimple or two...

Offered is a lovely old American coin silver table spoon by a maker who doesn't seem to have been documented, using the maker's mark R.MERRICK in a serrated punch. Examples of this man's work are in the Winterthur collection, with no location posited. It is evident, however, from the crudeness of the punch that a large-city origin point is unlikely. This piece is faintly engraved JK in period script. This tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. The maker'...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver dessert spoon in a single-struck variant of the Queen's pattern, by noted silversmith Frederick Marquand (b. 1799 - d. 1882), working in Savannah, GA between 1820-26 and in New York between 1826-39. Marquand was so successful that he retired at about age 40 in 1839 to manage his large land holdings and estates. He died in Connecticut, at his country house, having been born in that state in the last days of the 18th Century. Marquand produced and sold h...

Offered is a lovely and quite early George II English sterling silver basting spoon or hash spoon by noted specialist spoonmaker Philip Roker II, working from the 1720s on. The maker's mark on this spoon was registered in August 1720 and used at least through 1735, and this piece is consistent with similar hash spoons with date letters in the 1730s. Interestingly, the marks accompanying Roker's maker's marks are pseudo-hallmarks, apparently occasionally used by Roker to give the appearance of ...

Offered is a lovely set of 19th Century French silver tea or coffee spoons by Paris silversmith Fran├žois Pamphile Josan; these date to the post-1838 period. The gilding on each spoon is strong, and the design is nicely struck. Each spoon bears Josan's maker's mark and a fineness mark, perhaps for second standard (800/1000 fineness). These spoons are nicely decorated and have no engraved initials or crests, or any sign of erasure. These spoons measure about six inches in length, and the set ...

Offered is a fine carte de visite by important 19th Century photographer George Norman Barnard (1819-1902), who is best known for his important wartime images of the South, first while accompanying General Sherman on his Georgia campaign. Barnard's book, "Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign", is one of the most important collections of images of the Civil War. Barnard also recorded important images of the destruction in Charleston in around March 1865, and then went on to Columbia and the...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved Ivy pattern pierced ladle with gilt bowl, by Henry Hebbard (patented circa 1865) and later Whiting. This piece dates to the first years of the sterling era, probably around 1865-75. It measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 40 grams. The only marks are the patent date mark and a sterling mark, as this piece seems not to have made it to sale by a retailer. This piece was never engraved with a monogram or crest - perhaps it was taken home ...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddle pattern by noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward Lownes (1792-1834), and bearing one of his more attractive and uncommon maker's marks. This piece also has a period engraved script monogram that is partially rubbed. This spoon measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 21 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some surface wear and a few dimples in the bowl, but no splits or repairs. This is a nice example of an interestin...

Offered is a gorgeous pair of American coin silver sugar tongs by noted silversmith Harvey Lewis (1783-1835), working in Philadelphia circa 1805-11 in partnership as Lewis & Smith, and working alone in Philadelphia circa 1812-25, before his health declined and he gave up silversmithing. Despite a shorter working career, Harvey Lewis established himself as one of the leading silversmiths of his day in Philadelphia, and his work is nearly always superb. His pieces are represented in every major ...

Offered is an interesting, fairly late American silver master salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes (1758-1820). This piece has a period engraved script monogram and is a standard circa 1810-20 fiddle pattern piece. The interesting part about this salt spoon is that it exhibits the remains of die-struck decoration to the bowl - something not often seen with salt spoons. This may have been a bird or some other device - one would have to take a look at what remains visible ...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith George Franciscus, who began his career in Baltimore around 1800, but who moved to Lancaster by about 1819, working there for the rest of his career, until about 1840. This piece can be confidently ascribed to Franciscus' Lancaster period, both by style and by the fact that it came with a number of other pieces from the local Lancaster area. This bears a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. ...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Shoemaker, circa 1805-15. This piece has a good period engraved script monogram and a clear maker's mark. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. Condition is fair at best, with some dents to the bowl and a slight twist to the handle, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of a short-lived style in Philadelphia coin silver!

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 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,...
