Offered is a good Tuscan pattern American coin silver tablespoon, circa 1850, retailed by Harbottle & Smith of Auburn, NY. This pattern was patented by Michael Gibney in 1846, and has remained popular ever since. This tablespoon measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs a good 62 grams, or about two troy ounces. It is engraved with a fancy script monogram that appears to be somewhat later, probably over an erasure. It is well done, however. Condition overall is very good, with minima...

Offered is a lovely and unusual (perhaps modeled on ancient Roman examples, perhaps the product of Victorian imagination) English sterling silver serving piece or perhaps a dessert or ice cream fork, by John and Henry Lias and fully hallmarked for London, 1846. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs a heavy 38 grams. There is no crest, armorial or monogram and no erasure. This would be a great serving piece for small items at the holidays or on any special occasion. All ...

Offered is a lovely set of four early American coin silver table spoons by Rhode Island silversmith Walter Cornell (b. 1729 - d. 1801), working either in Providence, according to some publications, or in Newport, according to others, between 1780 and 1801. It is unclear what he was doing prior to 1780, as it would be unusual to commence business as a silversmith and clockmaker at the age of 50. It is possible that at different periods he was working in Newport and Providence; however, late in ...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved American coin silver table spoon by noted Baltimore silversmith Charles Louis Boehme.

According to the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA), "Charles Louis Boehme (1774-1868) came to Baltimore from Philadelphia in 1799, first advertising in May of that year as a “Gold, Silver Smith, and Jeweller” who “makes and sells every article in the above business.” Directories list Boehme on Baltimore Street as a silversmith from 1801 through 18...

Offered is a lovely and very early American coin silver table spoon by New York silversmith Peter Vergereau. According to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:

"Peter Vergereau is probably the individual born into New York City’s French community and baptised at the Église Françoise à la Nouvelle York on August 21, 1700. He was granted freeman status in 1721, which would have been the logical time for him to begin practicing his craft after an average apprenticeship. Vergereau was married ...

Offered is a lovely and scarce long-handled Alabama coin silver condiment spoon, perhaps a spoon for dry mustard, by the well-known firm of L'Hommedieu Brothers, working in Mobile circa 1842-61. This piece has a very clear, well-struck maker's mark and is engraved with a period script monogram. It measures about 5 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is good overall, with some small dents or dings in the bowl, and a slight waviness in the handle, but no splits or repairs....

Offered is a very good early American coin silver master salt spoon in the coffin-end or coffin handle pattern, probably made in the Northeastern United States (perhaps NY, RI or thereabouts) circa 1800-10. This piece is decorated with a period engraved script monogram of "FB" and does not have a maker's mark. This piece measures a little over 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams. Condition is excellent, with no dents, splits or repairs. There is a small spot of stubborn tarnish o...

Offered is a lovely and early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon circa 1775-85, by maker "JA"; I've not solved the maker of this mark (if you can, I will send you a coin silver teaspoon!), but a Hanoverian pattern teaspoon circa 1760-70 with the same mark is shown in the Winterthur online collection. In addition to the maker's mark, this piece is decorated with a period engraved block initial monogram of "O*F". One can dream up an instant ancestor for the original owner of this spoon, e....

Offered is a lovely pair of late 18th Century Rhode Island coin silver table spoons by noted silversmith Thomas Arnold (b. 1735 - d. 1828), working in Newport between about 1760 and 1817. These tablespoons are decorated with period engraved script monograms, the placement and style of which closely relates to the engraving on other Thomas Arnold spoons of the period. These spoons by style should date to about 1785-1800, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon is marked with bot...

Offered is a very good and rare early American coin silver teaspoon by William McNeely (1791-1842), who worked in Morgantown, Virginia (later West Virginia) circa 1812-18, and then relocated to Ohio, working in Paris, Stark County circa 1818 and then St. Clairsville, Belmont County circa 1819 to at least 1829. By style, this piece could have been made in either state, but is more likely to be on the early side and therefore perhaps made in Morgantown. The unusually shaped neck is similar to th...

Offered is a very good and quite heavy American coin silver table spoon and two matching and equally substantial table forks in the fiddlethread pattern by Marquand & Co., working in New York circa 1833-39. These pieces are marked with a clear, well-struck maker's mark and is also engraved with a very well done period script monogram of NDCM. Interestingly, the forks have a different pseudo-hallmark (an eagle) than does the tablespoon (a lion). The tablespoon measures about 8 5/8 inches in leng...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon decorated in a feather-edge Old English pattern style, with a period block monogram and worn die-struck shell decoration. This piece does not appear to have a maker's mark, but by style can be dated to the 1780-90 period, give or take a couple of years. It measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some modest tip wear and some very small dimples to the bowl. The handle ...

Offered is an interesting, fairly late American silver master salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes (1758-1820). This piece has a period engraved script monogram and is a standard circa 1810-20 fiddle pattern piece. The interesting part about this salt spoon is that it exhibits the remains of die-struck decoration to the bowl - something not often seen with salt spoons. This may have been a bird or some other device - one would have to take a look at what remains visible ...

Offered is a good and scarce example of the mark of Kentucky jeweler John Beauchamp, working in Bowling Green, KY circa 1847-71. This piece measures about 3 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 9 grams. There is no monogram but no obvious sign of erasure. The manufacturer's marks and Beauchamp's mark are clear and crisp. Condition is good overall, with only moderate wear from normal use and no splits, dents or repairs. All in all a fine piece of Bowling Green coin silver!

This ladle measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 91 grams, or almost three troy ounces. Condition is fair to good overall, with some surface wear and rubbi...
