Offered is a fine example of the work of New York silversmith John Burt Lyng (born circa 1740, died 1785), whose work appears only infrequently. This pair of feather-edge coin silver tablespoons dates by style to the period of 1770-85, and each bear's Lyng's maker's mark and a city mark for New York. A very similar spoon to this pair can be found in the online collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. John Burt Lyng is a major maker whose shop was at one time next door to that of Myer Myer...

Offered is a fine and rare example of the silverwork of Harrisburg silversmith Joseph Doll (b. 1768 - d. 1818), who is listed in that town from 1795 to 1818, primarily working as a silversmith and clockmaker. Mr. Doll was born in York, PA and may have trained there, but the majority of his working career seems to have been spent in Harrisburg. His silver is desirable and fairly uncommon, but what makes this ladle really interesting and rare is the period engraving of H.Doll in script, presumab...

Offered is a fine late 17th Century or very early 18th Century trefid table spoon bearing the maker's mark "IS" struck four times as the only mark.

This mark appears in Figure 8 of the article "In Search of John Smith" (a well-known Taunton and Barnstaple silversmith) by Tim Kent, F.S.A., which appeared in the January/February 2005 edition of The Finial (Volume 15/03). The spoon in that article was an acanthus-back trefid, also struck four times with this exact mark. The spoon was shown wi...

Offered is an interesting and unusual early 18th Century Brittania standard English silver tablespoon hallmarked for London, and what appears to be the year 1715 or so. The maker's mark is poorly struck but looks like it may be "Sc", which would make it likely the maker is William Scarlett, specialist spoonmaker of London working in this period. Scarlett was prolific and experimented with form, so that would make sense. This spoon has a very unusual midrib that branches out into almost a diam...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon (given the size) circa 1790, unmarked but with well-executed engraved and worked decoration. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is good overall with one or two very small and shallow dimples but no splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of an early American coin silver spoon!

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver spoon in the coffin-end pattern marked WILLARD, probably for a silversmith named A. Willard who may have worked in Utica. The spoon has a "Utica look" - however, I could be wrong. In any event, it is a lovely little piece. This spoon measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. There is no monogram or obvious sign of erasure. All in all a fine example of this...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon made by Ebenezer Moulton of Newburyport and Boston, MA, circa 1795-1805. The Moulton family of silversmiths is famous and well-documented. This teaspoon has a period engraved script monogram and a well-struck maker's mark. It measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is only fair as there is a scratch above the monogram and surface wear overall. There are no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable pi...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver coffee spoon or teaspoon by noted New York silversmith Silas White (b. 1754 - d. 1798), circa 1775-85 by style, and probably on the earlier end of that range. This piece has one of White's maker's marks documented at Winterthur and elsewhere, and shares the distinctive drop with other spoons bearing his mark. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved block initial monogram. This spoon measures about 4 3/8 inches in length and...

Offered is a lovely set of four American coin silver table spoons by New York City silversmith Teunis Denyse Dubois, with beautiful engraved decoration and a period script "R" monogram. See my other listings for a tablespoon by William Roe with the same monogram, from the same family. These spoons measure a bit under 9 1/4 inches in length on average, and the set of four weighs a total of about 236 grams. Condition overall is good, with some surface wear and a few small dimples, but no major ...

Offered is a very nice late 18th Century coin silver tablespoon by well-known NY silversmith William Roe (b. 1743 - d. 1830), working circa 1776-1800 in Albany, in partnership in Kingston circa 1800-05, in Troy from circa 1805-25, and then in New York City circa 1825 to his death in 1830. By style, this piece should date to the 1790s, but could be a few years earlier or later. This piece bears Mr. Roe's maker's mark (one of several he used over a very long career), and a sheaf of wheat pseudo-...

Offered is a lovely and scarce matched pair of quite early Old English Feather Edge pattern platter spoons or stuffing spoons, each fully hallmarked for London, 1774 and each bearing the maker's mark of noted London silversmith Thomas Chawner. Each server is engraved with an armorial of a dog, perhaps a spaniel of some kind. This is the earliest matched pair of stuffing spoons that I have come across. These spoons each measure about 12 1/4 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about...

Offered is a lovely and quite rare example of the silverwork of Bernard Hendel, better known as a clockmaker and the least known of the Hendel brothers. Bernard worked from about 1811 to 1844, and a number of clocks bearing his name alone or in conjunction with his brother Jacob are known. However, there is almost no silver bearing his name. This is only the second spoon I've come across by Bernard Hendel, and it is a good one. By style it should date to about 1825, but could be a little ear...

Offered is a fine and rare set of early Chinese Export Silver teaspoons in the military fiddle and thread pattern, by the major Chinese silversmith Linchong (or Lin Chong, Lynchong), working in Canton circa 1810-30 and perhaps a little later. He is known to have been working on New China Street in Canton in 1820. Like most Canton silversmiths, little has been published about Linchong in English-language reference works, but his work is widely admired and considered to compare favorably to Engl...

Offered is a lovely pair of antique Scottish provincial silver sugar tongs, circa the first or early second quarter of the 19th Century. This piece is struck twice on one arm with a maker's mark of "E", often assigned to James Erskine of Aberdeen; the other arm bears a hallmark that looks like a circle or ring. This piece also has a period engraved monogram done in a typically Scottish style. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 42 grams. All in all a lovely exam...

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering. It may be that the die for this mark was damaged and re-cut to eliminate all but the last name. It is also just possi...

Offered is a very fine pair of West Virginia coin silver dessert spoons by scarce Wheeling maker Artemas O. Fairchild, who commenced his business around 1839 and after many years relocated to Missouri. These spoons by style should date to the first years of his West Virginia period. Each spoon is engraved with a complicated period script monogram and each has a good legible maker's mark. These spoons each measure about 7 inches in length and the pair weighs about 58 grams. Condition is good ...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears...
