Offered is a lovely American coin silver gravy ladle or sauce ladle by Edward and David Kinsey of Cincinnati, working circa 1844-61. This piece has a twist handle and excellent decoration, as well as a period monogram to the front, and a period inscription to the back. The inscription is almost certainly of the same date as the monogram. The monogram is distinctive enough to permit a possibility of tracking down the original owner, but then, Cincinnati is a large town! This piece measures ab...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by Prisca Levan Mannerback (Mannerbach), son of the well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback. The younger Mannerbach/Mannerback, who went by Levan based on his maker's mark, started working under his own mark not much earlier than 1825, given that he was born in 1807, and that would make him 18 in 1825. For that reason, it is surprising how early this spoon is by style, with a slim fiddle handle and no shoulders. It could be one of ...

Offered is a good set of three American coin silver teaspoons bearing the mark of Johann Matthias Bonnet, Sr. (b. 1811, d. 1882), working in Zanesville from 1835 to his death. Bonnet was primarily a clockmaker and retailer, but also sold jewelry and silver flatware. These spoons probably date to the 1835-50 period, and are each marked with a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark for Bonnet. Each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. These spoons each measure about 5 1/2 inches in...

Beitel, who was born and died in Nazareth (b. 1811, d. 1898, and worked there all his life. Mr. Beitel apprenticed under Jedediah Weiss in 1825, and this spoon probably dates to shortly after that.

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon with a very unusual maker's mark of Zahm's Corner. This refers to the shop in the late 1860s or 1870s run by the silversmith E. J. Zahm. The shop was at the corner of N. Queen St. and Center Square. This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition overall is good, with modest wear from normal use but no dents aside from normal small dimples, and no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example from the ...

Offered is a rare example of the work of important Franco-American silversmith Jean-Simon Chaudron, who enjoyed much success in Philadelphia alone and in partnership between 1793 and 1820; Chaudron's work is highly sought after for its quality. Despite prospering in Philadelphia, Chaudron moved after 1820 to Demopolis, Alabama to be part of the Franco-American "Vine and Olive Colony". Chaudron soon gave up farming and moved to Mobile, where he lived for the next few decades until his death in ...

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver teaspoons by Poplar Ridge, New York silversmith T. P. Cranson, about whom little seems to be known. By the style of a few pieces observed, he seems to have worked in the 1820s through perhaps the 1840s. These teaspoons have legible maker's marks, and have a the great addition of a town mark for Poplar Ridge. Please review all the photos. There are no monograms, but there probably was an erasure at one point, as the spatulate end of the front o...

This is the first and only piece of silver bearing this maker's mark that I've seen. This piece is engraved in period script for the original owner, and has a very clear and well struck maker's mark.

Please see my other listings for three tablespoons and a table fork from the same service. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 21 grams.

Offered is a lovely pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Kentucky silversmith E.C. Beard, working in Louisville alone and in partnership circa 1820-60. These spoons by style could date anywhere from 1830 to the 1850s, but are most likely from the 1830s or 1840s. Each is marked BEARD in a distinctive serrated punch with a funny curve to the left side. Each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram of "SW". Please take a look at all pictures. These spoons each measure about 5 7/8 ...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Henry Erwin, circa 1816-34. Although spoons by Erwin are not uncommon and I have handled many, the pseudo-hallmark on these spoons to the right of the maker's mark are unique in my experience. What exactly they represent visually is a mystery - it looks to me like a hunting dog looking back over its shoulder when oriented so that the bottom is toward the name mark. These spoons also have period en...
