Offered is a nice and scarce American coin silver teaspoon dating to around the beginning of the 19th Century and made by George Hendel, a celebrated silversmith of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. In 2009, a tea service by Hendel sold at auction for $90,000. This teaspoon is slightly more affordable. It has a legible maker's mark of GH in an oval, and a period engraved script monogram of TMcM. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is fairly good, with...

Offered is a very rare example of the work of John Hickman, silversmith of Kentucky. Mr. Hickman is recorded in Louisville between about 1832 and 1850, and in Taylorsville between 1850-62. He may have been the John Hickman killed in the war, but a John E. Hickman, jeweler, was recorded in Shelbyville in the 1870s. This spoon dates by style to the 1820s or early 1830s, and the mark and monogram would also be consistent with an early date. Please take a look at all of the pictures. It is ...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver dessert spoon by noted Cincinnati silversmith, watchmaker and clockmaker Alexander McGrew (1775 - 1843), who was working in Cincinnati circa 1805-36, and perhaps a bit earlier or later. In addition to his main career, Alexander was also director of the Ohio Mechanics Institute (a school for the trades) and involved in the development of railroads in the Midwest. This dessert spoon has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a lovely period engraved scri...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon by a maker with a well-made "T.B" mark, circa 1805-15. Although this mark has been given to Newburyport, Mass. silversmith Theophilus Bradbury in one book on the basis of a single spoon with no provenance, that spoon and the several others I'm aware of with this mark have essentially nothing in common with Bradbury's known work, so he can be largely discounted as the putative maker of this piece.

Offered is a beat-up American coin silver spoon with a scarce mark of FOWLE&KIRKLAND in a serrated punch, used by the Northampton, MA partnership of Nathaniel Fowle and Samuel Warner Kirkland, circa 1828-33. This piece has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. This spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length, and weighs about 15 grams. Condition is pretty poor overall, but it would be a shame to consign this to the smelter. All in all a nice Northampton coi...

Offered is a nice example of a coin silver spoon evidently made as a toy or for the use of a small child, measuring 4 3/16 inches in length and weighing about 7 grams. Ordinarily I might assume this is simply a spoon form (as opposed to ladle form) master salt spoon, but with the engraving of the name "Bertie" (a diminutive of "Robert"), I have to assume it was made for a child. This piece has no maker's mark, but by style it should date to the 1825-50 period. It has some wear and small dings...

Offered is a beat-up but quite scarce example of a Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon, circa 1810-14, bearing the maker's mark of Thomas W. Harper (the manufacturer) and Joseph Anthony & Son (the retailer); silver with any of Mr. Anthony's marks is uncommon, let alone with Harper's mark also. This piece has worn but legible marks and a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. Condition is poor overall, with a lot of surface wear and s...

Offered is a nice shellback coin silver silver spoon marked with probably New York manufacturing marks, and the name of the retailer, one J.K. McDonald. This person was probably in New York, but I'm not completely sure. This spoon has legible marks and a period engraved monogram. It measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 19 grams. Condition is fair, with a fair amount of wear and some small dings here and there, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice coin silver spoon!

Offered is a city-marked New Hampshire coin silver spoon by Stanford Hovey and Amos Parker, working as Hovey, Parker & Co. circa 1850-52 in Manchester, NH. This spoon has good marks and a period engraved owner's name on the handle, which is unusual enough to likely be traceable. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. Condition is fair, with some dings and bends but no splits or repairs. All in all an interesting piece with a relatively scarce maker's mark...

Offered is a nice Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon by noted maker Samuel R. Warrington, working from the 1820s until about 1858. This spoon has a legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 9 grams. Condition overall is good, with modest signs of wear from normal use, and not splits or repairs. All in all a nice little Philadelphia coin silver spoon!

Offered is a nice American coin silver spoon circa 1815, give or take five years, with a maker's mark of "O.&C." and a period engraved script monogram of "UT". The maker is unknown, at least to me - while Ott & Cluff of Virginia has been suggested, this spoon feels to be a bit late for that partnership. As such, it is a bit of a mystery! This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some small waves in the handle and a few minor d...

Offered is a very nice coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker Frederick Smith, working as a silversmith and jeweler from about 1833-45, and as a case maker and pocket-book maker thereafter. This spoon has a rubbed but legible maker's mark for Smith, as well as a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 11 grams. Condition is fairly good overall, with a slight wave in the handle and a small ding in the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All i...

Offered is a lovely and earlier coin silver spoon by Philadelphia silversmith, clockmaker and jeweler Nicholas LeHuray, Jr. (b. 1797 - d. 1846), working circa 1821-46 in that city. Nicholas LeHuray, Jr. made or sold some very fine flatware, and occasional hollowware. His work is not all that scarce but is usually very desirable. Check my other listings for a slightly later and larger set of four teaspoons by LeHuray, Jr. This teaspoon is from the 1820s, on the early end of Nicholas' care...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver dessert spoon with a unicorn armorial by noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward Lownes; unlike the plethora of crested "National Trust Replica" crested spoons bearing Lownes' maker's mark, this one is the real deal - a period Philadelphia spoon circa 1820-35, with a lovely armorial of a unicorn's head. This piece measures about 7 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 40 grams. The armorial and the maker's mark are both in great shape. The bowl was...

Offered is a nice 19th Century American coin silver sugar shell by unknown silversmith or jeweler H. J. Low, possibly a man named Henry J. Low purportedly working in Fitchburg, Massachusetts in the mid-19th Century. I haven't found a verifiable reference for this mark, which is H.J.LOW in a rectangular punch. It doesn't appear that this Mr. Low is related to the much more famous Low family of silversmiths/jewelers in Boston in the same era - at least not closely. This piece has a good clear m...

Offered is a lovely set of six American coin silver teaspoons by Providence silversmith Christopher Burr (b. 1787 - d. 1884), working alone from 1818 through at least 1850 as a silversmith and jeweler. These spoons are fairly early, circa 1818-30. Each has a clear maker's mark as well as a period engraved script "MM" monogram. These spoons measure about 5 3/8 inches in length, and the set weighs about 53 grams altogether. Condition is good overall, though the spoons have minor bends and ding...

Offered is a nice early 19th Century American coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker John Kinnicutt Pitman (1779 - 1819), working in Providence, Rhode Island between about 1800 and 1819. This piece has a good legible maker's mark for John K. Pitman, also used by his father (who died in 1804), according to William Voss' website. This spoon also has a good period engraved script "JES" monogram. This spoon measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. Condition is fair ov...

Offered is a really lovely American coin silver master salt spoon by Thomas H. Carson and Green Hall, working in partnership as Carson & Hall between 1814 and 1819 in Albany, New York. This piece has a clear, well-struck maker's mark and a good period engraved script monogram. It measures about 4 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition overall is good, with minor signs of use and wear but no splits or repairs. The shape and proportions are especially nice on this example. A...
