Offered is a superb set of six early American coin silver spoons by Philadelphia silversmith William Long, working from about 1807-22. Mr. Long left few items bearing his mark, which is an interesting shape and quite nice. These spoons are well made and each is decorated with an engraved period script monogram and a clear mark. They probably date to around 1810 by style but could date to any part of Mr. Long's relatively short career. These spoons measure about 5 15/16 inches in length on av...

Offered is a very good Scottish sterling silver spoon hallmarked for Glasgow, 1821. The pattern is a fiddle thread and shell or King's shape variant, and is single-struck. The engraving includes a number below the monogram, something occasionally seen on flatware where the owner wanted a little extra security against light-fingered servants or guests. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is good overall, with modest wear and a few tiny dings h...

It has an engraved gothic monogram and bears a set of clear, well-struck marks. Condition overall is very good, with some surface wear but no dents, splits or repairs. ...

Offered is a scarce early American coin silver tablespoon by John P. Shinckle of Philadelphia, and bearing his mark as well as manufacturer's marks in the form of florets, used by John Curry. Shinckle's mark is uncommon as he seems not to have been successful; I've seen only one other spoon with his mark, also with a Curry floret. This tablespoon has legible marks and also has a period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 48 grams. Condi...

Offered is a set of three American coin silver teaspoons in John Polhamus' attractive Oriental Pattern (1855), and bearing his mark and the patent mark, as well as the retailer's mark of N. E. Crittenden of Cleveland. These teaspoons each measure about 5 7/8 inches in length, and the set weighs about 62 grams altogether. Condition is mixed, with each spoon having some wear and one spoon having a ding to the bowl. These spoons are certainly worth having your local silversmith clean up! Each s...

Offered is a good and scarce set of American coin silver table knives with pitch-filled hollow handles in an olive pattern variant. It is hard to find these knives in this length, let alone a matching set! These knives each have a set of manufacturer's marks on the blades, as well as a small period engraved script monogram. These knives measure about 8 1/4 inches in length on average, and although the handles are filled, the total weight is 196 grams, mostly from the blades. Condition is good...

Offered is an extremely rare set of early American coin silver spoons by Philadelphia silversmith John D. Shepper, who probably apprenticed under Samuel Williamson and whose biographical information can be found in Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths". What you won't find in the book is a picture of Shepper's mark, and these spoons are the only pieces I've ever heard of by him. It is a gorgeous maker's mark, and hard to miss. These spoons measure about 5 5/8 inches in length on aver...

UPDATE - mentioned in the Darling Foundation book with no location or full name given. Theory relates to the maker being one "Alanson Pierson" of Cooperstown, NY, but need more evidence. A coin silver spoon to the person who can definitively solve this!

This item is not for sale; rather, I am seeking input from anyone who may have relevant information about the maker of this spoon, who doesn't appear to have been documented in the standard references. The maker's mark is "A.Pierson" in ...

Offered is a very good American coin silver condiment spoon with a long handle, in a pattern patented in 1850 but with which I am not familiar. It is quite an attractive piece. There is no maker's or retailer's mark on this piece, just a patent date and a PURE COIN mark. This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is very good with light wear but no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine coin silver serving piece!

Offered is an excellent set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Jacob Brittin, circa 1807-14 or so. These spoons are in the Old English pattern and each have die-struck shell decoration to the heel as well as period engraved script "MS" monograms. In my other listings I have listed a later spoon made by William Ogle to match this set. This listing just covers the three Jacob Brittin teaspoons. Each spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and th...

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia watchmaker and silversmith William Ogle, working in the 1820s and 1830s.

Those spoons will be listed as a separate listing following this one. This piece is in the Old English pattern and is decorated with a period engraved script monogram of "MS"; the maker's mark is slightly rub...
