Offered is a lovely early American coin silver table spoon in the coffin-end pattern bearing the maker's mark MOULTON incuse, which appears to be given to Ebenezer Noyes Moulton (working in Boston, MA between about 1790 and 1820). The Moulton family of silversmiths was extensive and prolific, and this is a nice example. This piece has a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 8 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 48 grams...

Offered is a good early 19th Century American coin silver teaspoon by the celebrated Philadelphia partnership of Lewis & Smith. Harvey Lewis and Joseph D. Smith worked in partnership from about 1805 to 1811, and produced some of the most finely executed and beautifully engraved silver of their era. Many examples of their excellent holloware and flatware are extant in public collections...

Offered is a nice and very scarce example of the work of Philadelphia silversmith and jeweler George Walker, who worked in that city from about 1795 to about 1822. This piece bears a clear strike of one of Walker's known marks, and is also engraved with a period monogram. Please take a look at all photos. This spoon measures about 5 5/16 inches in length and weighs about 9 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some surface wear and a number of small dings, but no splits or repairs...

Offered is a truly lovely early American coin silver table spoon circa 1760-80, engraved with period block initials to the reverse and struck once with a maker's mark of SW, which appears to be one of the marks of Silas White (born circa 1737 in Southampton, NY, died 1798 in New York, NY), as this spoon bears a very distinctive drop seen on other spoons attributed to White, including one at Winterthur. Please see all of the photos...

This piece is not for sale, but help me solve the mystery of who made this piece, and I will send you a very nice coin silver spoon in thanks! These twist-arm American coin silver sugar tongs measure about 7 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 49 grams. The maker's mark is a fairly crude SR in a serrated punch. Please take a look at all the pictures...

Offered is a rare and lovely early American coin silver long-handled condiment spoon, perhaps for dry mustard, by noted Philadelphia silversmiths Jean-Simon Chaudron and Anthony Rasch, working together in partnership circa 1809-12. This piece bears a clear maker's mark for the partnership, as well as a period script monogram to the reverse of the handle...

Offered is a lovely Baltimore coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith and watch and clock maker, John Lynch (1761-1848), probably circa the 1830s, but perhaps a little earlier or later. This piece has an engraved period script monogram and also features, in addition to a maker's mark for Mr. Lynch, several pseudo-hallmarks, including a union shield, an eagle, and the letter "S"...

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...

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...

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...

Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon that by style appears to date to the 1750-70 timeframe; the maker's mark ends with an "E" that looks an awful lot like one of Samuel Edwards' marks, but I can't make out the first letter. The outline of the mark is right for Samuel Edwards as well, but the drop on the spoon is different from those I've seen used by Edwards. So, probably a different maker...

For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite poss...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears...

Offered is a nice little early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Delaware and Pennsylvania silversmith Isaac Woodcock, circa 1815. At this time, Isaac (son of noted silversmith Bancroft Woodcock) was working in Well's Valley, PA (between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg). This teaspoon bears one of Isaac Woodcock's full name maker's marks, and a period engraved script monogram that appears to be "NRG". This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is barely ...

Offered is a lovely example of a rare form in early American coin silver - a coffin-end pattern sauce or gravy ladle. This piece measures a little under 8 inches in length and weighs about 46 grams. It bears a lovely period script monogram of what appears to be "DSH". This piece has no maker's mark. Condition overall is very good, with no dents, splits or repairs; however there is a little spot on the underside of the handle where someone unfamiliar with antique silver did a scratch test (se...

Offered is a very rare example of the work and maker's mark of Jean-Felix LeFevre (1780 - 1813), silversmith of Philadelphia. This piece is in fair condition at best, with a lot of surface wear and a dinged and dented bowl, but has a decent legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. LeFevre's work is usually quite good, though this spoon is a bit lighter than most of his spoons. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. All in all a good exa...

Offered is a challenge - identify the silversmith who made this spoon, with a verifiable and supportable attribution, and I will send you a surprise coin silver teaspoon in good condition (worth about $15-20) as a prize! I haven't yet found this mark anywhere, and thought it an interesting experiment to leverage the talents of some of the silver enthusiasts and experts out there.

This piece measures about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 64 grams. It is marked "R.L" in an squarish punc...

Offered is a fine and very early Ohio coin silver master salt spoon or condiment spoon by Columbus and Wooster silversmith Lindel (or Lindol) Sprague. Mr. Sprague was born October 12, 1798 in Cooperstown, New York. According to information online, he appears to have been apprenticed to William Platt of Columbus, OH around 1810, and by 1815 was in business for himself. He was master to his brother Hezekiah from around 1817 to 1820 in Columbus, before relocating to Wooster around 1820. He work...
