Offered is a very scarce and early example of Kentucky coin silver by prominent Lexington silversmith Samuel Ayres, whose biographical information appears below. This piece is marked with a maker's mark of "S.AYRES LEX K" in a banner. By style this piece would appear to date to between 1800 and 1810. There is no monogram or sign of erasure, and the maker's mark is rubbed but legible. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon in a style consistent with 18th Century Pennsylvanian German silversmiths, and marked LH - probably for Lewis (Ludwig) Heck, working in Lancaster circa 1780-1817. This piece probably dates to about 1790-1800. It has an engraved monogram that could be period but appears a bit later in terms of the depth of the engraving. This piece measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is a lovely set of four American coin silver teaspoons or coffee spoons (they measure only 5 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 33 grams altogether) by Philadelphia silversmith William Baily, Jr., circa 1830-50. Each spoon has a period engraved script monogram of "CP" and a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark. Condition is good overall, with a few minor dings and bends, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice set for everyday use!

Offered is a lovely example of the work of Pennsylvania silversmith John D. Haverstick, a member of the celebrated Haverstick family of silversmiths. John D. Haverstick was working in Lancaster circa 1805-09; in Carlisle circa 1809-25; and in Erie after 1825. This probably dates to the Carlisle period, but could be a late Lancaster piece...

Offered is a very fine pair of early American coin silver table spoons bearing the mark of Harrisburg craftsman George Beatty. Beatty seems to have focused mainly on clocks, and his silver generally bears the "Philadelphia Eagle" manufacturer's mark, thought to have been in use between 1825 and 1850. Biographical information on Mr. Beatty follows the description of this piece...

Offered is a nice example of the work of the celebrated Baltimore silversmith William Ball (working circa 1789-1815), whose work is surprisingly scarce. This is the first piece of his that I've come across. This piece is marked with Ball's maker's mark twice, and the clearer of the two marks is pictured here (see all pictures by clicking on the first one). This spoon is also graced with a period engraved script monogram and a nicely decorated handle...

Offered is a nice pair of New York coin silver teaspoons circa 1825-40 by J.BELL with pseudo-hallmarks; this mark has sometimes been given to John Bell of New York City, but he seems to have worked too early for the style of these spoons unless they were in the last year or two of his career. There were also at least two J. Bells working in Ogdensburg, NY between 1810 and 1850 or 60, and this could be the mark of one of those men...

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...

Not For Sale
NOT FOR SALE - Here's a challenge - a circa 1790-1810 American coin silver tablespoon marked only IS in a large serrated punch, with a nicely engraved period script monogram of GJM and a V-shaped drop. This piece measures about 9 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 59 grams. It came in a lot with a piece by Caleb Bentley of DC, VA and MD, and it has the look of rural VA, MD or PA.

Offered is a very nice American coin silver table spoon 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. This piece probably dates to the 1825-40 period. You can see all the pictures by clicking on the first picture. This piece has...

Offered is a very fine example of the early maker's mark of noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward P. Lescure, who was working between 1822 and about 1836, and then intermittently through about 1861. While Lescure's later mark is well-known and seen periodically, this early mark is all but unknown, and perhaps only a tiny fraction of Lescure's extant work bears this mark. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. It has a faded period engraved script monogram....
