Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon by little-known silversmith Nathaniel Potter of the village of Huntington, Long Island, NY, circa 1825-35. However, I can't completely rule out that this is an alternate mark used by Niles Potter of Westerly, Rhode Island - both men are little-known, with few examples of their work extant. However, this mark is different than that attributed to Niles...

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...

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...

Offered is a rare and lovely early American coin silver spoon by Nazareth, Pennsylvania silversmith Josiah O. 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. It has a good clear maker's mark and a lovely period engraved script "ECD". This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams...

Offered is a very rare American coin silver spoon by R. & W. Wilson of Philadelphia - rare because of the other mark on the spoon - "CROWNS". This denotes the highest standard of silver used in production by the Wilsons, as described in an 1826 newspaper advertisement they published (please review all of the pictures). In two decades of looking at hundreds or thousands of Wilson pieces, this is the first I've come across with this mark...

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...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver birdback teaspoon by noted Philadelphia maker John Myers (fl. 1785-1804), with a fairly worn but legible bird. This piece is engraved with period script initials of "PS" and has a maker's mark of I.MYERS to the reverse. This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair, with some wear and dings to the bowl, and a very slight waviness to the stem. Please take a look at all the pictures...

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...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon from the late 18th Century, bearing period engraved block initials but without a maker's mark. Although this piece could be from anywhere in theory, it has certain proportions that might support a guess of a New Hampshire origin. Hard to explain - more of a "feel" thing. This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. There are som...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 1/2 inches in length and weighing about 9 grams, and dating by style to about 1780, give or take a few years. This piece is unmarked but does have period engraved block initials for the original owner. It is decorated with feather edging on the stem, and has a New England-style shell decoration to the back of the bowl. This piece feels like a smaller town piece, in that the engraving is less than expert a...

Offered is a nice long-handled condiment spoon bearing a rare mark - that of H. N. Greene of Mansfield, Ohio, working there circa 1855-70. 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. It measures about 5 3/16 inches in length, and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair, with some ripples to the handle and a ding to the bowl, but no splits...

Offered is a nice Kentucky silver teaspoon 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 table fork from the same service. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 21 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 fair at best, as there...

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon measuring about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighing about 52 grams. This piece bears the mark of Newell Harding of (during this period of 1820-30) Haverhill, MA, but Harding doesn't appear to be the maker, as his mark is overstriking that of another silversmith. It is not surprising that this would be the case, as this piece is frankly superior to much of Harding's work. Please take a look at all the pictures for closeups of the bowl, back of...

Offered is a good American coin silver dinner fork in one of Robert and William Wilson's proprietary patterns. I don't know its name, but it is a bead and shell pattern. This piece measures about 7 1/2 inches in length and weighs a substantial 51 grams. This fork has a maker's mark for the Wilsons to the reverse, and a period engraved script monogram of "MER" to the reverse. Condition is very good aside from some even tine wear; there are no splits or repairs. All in all a fine and useful p...
