Offered is an extraordinary set of four early American coin silver dessert spoons by Washington, DC silversmiths Joseph Bentley and William Wood, circa 1809. This brief partnership, conducted at the Washington Navy Yard, lasted only from December 1808 through the end of August 1809, when it was dissolved by mutual consent. Silver bearing the mark of this partnership is of course extremely rare, and this set of dessert spoons with extremely well preserved maker's marks is very likely the best s...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia watchmaker and jeweler Benjamin Robinson, working circa 1818-44. This piece has a good clear mark for. Mr. Robinson and a city mark for Philadelphia; it also has the eagle with shield mark thought perhaps to denote manufacture by R. & W. Wilson, though to my knowledge this hasn't been proved. Please take a look at all the photographs. This piece is also engraved with a period script monogram. It measures about 5 3/4 inches...

These spoons were located separately many years apart, but originate from the same service and have now been reunited. The dessert spoons measure about 6 7/8 inches in length and the teaspoons about 5 7/8 inches in length...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by silversmith Guy Loomis circa 1825-45; it has a clear maker's mark for Loomis and is engraved with period script initials "LL" for the original owner. By style, it could date either to Loomis' time in Sheffield, Massachusetts (circa 1816-37), or to his Erie period, from 1837 to 1874. This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is excellent overall, with minor signs of wear from normal use, but n...

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 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 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...

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 fair at best, as there...

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 ...
