Offered is a good early American coin silver master salt spoon marked A JONES and SPRINGFIELD and also marked with a large and interesting eagle mark. This maker's mark is attributed to Albert Jones, traditionally listed as working in Greenfield, MA circa 1825-35. This same maker's mark has been found on pieces also marked GREENFIELD, without the eagle mark. So, it appears that at least for a short period (perhaps at the start of his career), Albert Jones worked in Springfield...

Offered is a fine and rare set of Western Maryland coin silver tea spoons by little-known Cumberland City (Allegany County) jeweler and watchmaker John H. Kelenbeck, circa 1860. Mr. Kelenbeck appears to have started his career in Baltimore, as a John Kehlenbeck, watch & clock maker, jeweler, is listed in "Silver in Maryland" as working in that city circa 1845-51. That same volume references that the jewelry firm of "Kellenbeck & Johnson" was working in Cumberland circa 1867. However, Mr...

All in all a fine example of American silver!

Offered is a fine and very early example of the work of Fayetteville, NC silversmith John Selph, working circa 1807 to 1838. Selph's work is quite scarce, and this piece is the earliest I've seen by style. The square shoulders and tapered transitional handle put this in the first decade of Selph's career, most likely somewhere between 1807-15. This piece bears a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram that is a little rubbed but appears to be ERW. Condition is decent ov...

Offered is a fine early American coin silver tea spoon by noted Philadelphia and New Orleans silversmith Anthony Rasch. This spoon is interesting in that it is one of the few pieces of flatware Rasch marked STERLING SILR.; only a few Philadelphia and Baltimore silversmiths seem to have been doing this in the first two decades of the 19th Century. The maker's mark and standard mark on this spoon are well-struck and clear, and the spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. This piece pro...

Offered is a rare early American coin silver table spoon by Lancaster, PA silversmith George Haverstick (b. 1788, d. 1824).

This piece measures about 9 7/16 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. Condition is good overall, with moderate wear to the surface but no major dents and no splits o...

Offered is a rare early American coin silver table spoon by Richard Flower, Jr., working in Philadelphia circa 1783-86. After 1786 he appears to have turned to other professions. Flower is known for his birdback spoons, which are quite uncommon. This is the only example of his work I've come across. The maker's mark is very well struck and clear, and the period engraved script monogram is well executed. The bird (pictured) is a dove, and is fairly well preserved. Condition overall is fair,...
