Offered is an early American coin silver tablespoon by noted New York silversmith Daniel Van Voorhis, circa 1780-90.

Offered is a very good and quite heavy American coin silver table spoon in the fiddlethread pattern by Marquand & Co., working in New York circa 1833-39.

Offered is a very good early English sterling silver master salt spoon, circa 1770-80. This piece is nicely decorated with feather-edging and engraved with an armorial of a dragon's head. See my other listings for a contemporaneous master salt cellar with the same crest. This master salt spoon is very unusual in that it is not only a duty dodger, with nothing but maker's marks, but also has two different maker's marks. One is TE, perhaps for Thomas Evans of London, and the other is TE over G...

Offered is a lovely English Georgian sterling silver master salt cellar by the noted partnership of Robert Hennell I and David Hennell I, fully hallmarked for London, 1770. This partnership was in effect circa 1763-73 when David Hennell I, the father, retired. This firm continued for decades under multiple generations of this prolific family of silversmiths. This piece is nicely crested with an armorial of a dragon's head. See my other listings for a feather-edge master salt spoon with the s...

Offered is a truly lovely American coin silver dessert spoon by noted Virginia silversmith James Gaskins, working in Norfolk circa 1770-76, Portsmouth between about 1780-1804, and Norfolk again between 1804 and 1806. This spoon would very likely have been made in Portsmouth, and probably dates to about 1785-90, but could be a few years earlier or later. See my other listings for another dessert spoon from this set. This piece is expertly engraved with a period script monogram that appears to ...

Offered is a lovely and scarce large American coin silver gravy or sauce ladle by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 8 1/4 inches in length and weighing about 60 grams. This piece by style should date to about 1810 but could be a few years earlier or later. It is certainly more than two centuries old. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "HT". The ladle is marked to the reverse with one of McMulli...

Offered is an unusually early pair of English Britannia standard rattail Hanoverian pattern tablespoons by Thomas Spackman (working circa 1700-19 in London), made by the Victorians into berry spoons. Typically, berry spoons started out as late 18th century spoons, though earlier spoons such as these were also used when available. This pair is very nicely done, and luckily still has a good maker's mark on one spoon. Each spoon measures a little under 8 inches in length, and the pair weighs a t...

Offered is a good heavy mid-Eighteenth Century English sterling silver Hanoverian Pattern tablespoon, engraved with a worn armorial of a hound of some sort, and bearing hallmarks indicating London manufacture. I didn't check the maker's mark, but it should be relatively easy to track down. This piece measures about 8 1/16 inches in length and weighs a good 68 grams or so. Condition is good overall, with some surface wear but good color and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine early...

Offered is a nice English Georgian sterling silver Hanoverian pattern tablespoon bearing a well-executed period armorial of a hawk or falcon. This piece measures about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. Condition is fair at best, as the bowl has been reshaped and the stem may have a well done repair, given that the maker's mark is missing. However, this would make a decent fill-in piece for a set or a server for casual use. The repairs have been done well, and this piece prese...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved English sterling silver master butter knife or cheese knife, hallmarked for London, 1834-35 and with a maker's mark of JW in script, probably for John James Whiting. This piece measures about 7 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. It is expertly engraved with period script initials, probably "FHO". Condition is excellent with minimal surface wear, good color, and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a lovely piece and a great holiday item!

Offered is a nice early crested Georgian English sterling silver sauce or gravy ladle by noted London silversmith Richard Crossley, fully hallmarked for 1782. The armorial is of what appears to be a lion's paw emerging from a coronet and grasping an escallop (scallop shell); I've not researched the armorial to determine the family, but it is probably traceable. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 52 grams. Condition is fair to good overall, with some surface wear...

Offered is a lovely and scarce American coin silver serving piece bearing the maker's mark of George C. Shreve, working in San Francisco from about 1852 on. This piece appears to be a buckwheat or tomato server, but I am happy to be corrected if this piece had a different purpose. This server measures about 8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. It is decorated with a period Gothic initial "C" and clearly marked. The engraving on this piece is excellent and highly decorative. Conditi...
