Offered is a lovely American coin silver soup ladle by noted Washington, D.C. silversmith Robert Keyworth (born 1795 in England, died 1856 in Washington, D.C.). Keyworth was working on Pennsylvania, west of 9th Street, by 1820, and was had a long and successful career. He was active in the local militia, attaining the rank of Major in the 1st Regiment, D.C. Volunteers; he was also a committed Mason...

Offered is a very good and rare example of the maker's mark or retailer's mark of George Keesee of Richmond, Virginia, working circa 1831-47. Silver bearing Keesee's mark is rarely encountered, perhaps because he died at age 36 in 1847. This piece has a good clear mark for Keesee and manufacturer's marks for Philo Gilbert. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams...

Offered is a good American coin silver cream or other serving ladle, made circa 1857-64 by Hotchkiss & Schreuder of Syracuse, NY (apparently this version of their marks was in use in that period, though the firm continued to 1871 as a partnership). This piece also bears a retailer's mark of JOHN RICH. I am not familiar with this retailer. This ladle measures about 6 1/8 inches in length, and weighs about 22 grams...

Offered is a very good and large early American coin silver table spoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and a maker's mark of A.G.PECK. Little is known about the silversmith behind this mark, although an A. G. Peck was listed by Knittle as working in Ashtabula, Ohio circa 1823. Such a date would certainly fit this piece, which could have been made in Ohio based on style. It should also be noted that an Asahel G...

Offered is a fine and rare American coin silver (in this case in the sterling standard) beaker or julep cup by noted Philadelphia silversmiths Simon Chaudron and Anthony Rasch, who alone and in partnership as Chaudron's & Rasch made some of the most important American silver of the first quarter of the 19th Century. The partnership between Chaudron and Rasch lasted only three years and its work is highly sought after - particularly pieces like this one, marked STER*AMERI*MAN...

Offered is a fine early American coin silver table spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Harvey Lewis. Mr. Lewis is known for his Empire and late Neoclassical silver; his career spanned the period 1802-25. This piece probably dates to the 1815-25 period, but could be a few years earlier. It measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 76 grams. Condition is excellent, with little wear and no dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a good pair of American coin silver (many would consider this Southern coin silver) teaspoons bearing the retailer's mark of F. J. Posey. Frederick J. Posey (1815-1881) was active as a silversmith, jeweler, watch and clockmaker in Hagerstown, Maryland from at least 1842 until after 1860. He also reportedly worked as a watch and clockmaker in Shepherdstown, Virginia in 1842...

Offered is a lovely Georgian English sterling silver wine label or bottle ticket made by the noted Barnard family of silversmiths. The mark on this label is number 575 in Arthur Grimwade's "London Goldsmiths, 1697-1837" - it was entered into the assay office rolls in 1829 by Edward Barnard and his three sons, Edward Jr., John and William. Given the style of the sovereign head duty mark, this piece would date to between 1829 and 1834; the date letter is obscured. This wine label or bottle tick...

His available biographical information appears below. These spoons average about 6 1/8 inches in length and the three together weigh about 46 grams. There is no monogram or sign of erasure on any of the spoons. Condition is fair, with modest tip wear and dents and dings to the bowls. The maker's mark...

Offered is a good American coin silver youth fork in the fiddlethread pattern, by Brown & Kirby of New Haven, Connecticut, circa 1834-50 or perhaps 57. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. Condition is fair, with a little tine wear and a couple of scratches above the engraved period script owner's name of Printup. This is an unusual name, and perhaps the original owner's family can be traced in New Haven. All in all a nice little coin silver fork! Th...

Offered is an early silver teaspoon made by Wood & Hughes and retailed by Evansville, IN jeweler G.A. Bittrolff & Co., circa 1860-67. Mr. Bittrolff's biographical information appears below. This spoon was made during the transition from coin silver to the sterling standard. It measures about 6 inches in length, and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is fair, with some dings to the bowl and a slight wave in the handle. The marks are clear and legible. All in all a nice Indiana piece! The f...

Offered is a fine pair of American coin silver master salt spoons, executed by Wood & Hughes in a fancy pattern, for which I've not found a name. These spoons are in good condition, with little wear to the pattern, and a fair amount of gilding remaining to the bowls, especially on one spoon. The spoons are free of dents, splits or repairs. Each is engraved Mary in period script, and each bears the maker's mark of Wood & Hughes. These spoons average about 3 7/8 inches in length, and weigh 22 ...

Offered is a fine early American coin silver tablespoon by noted Harrisburg, Pennsylvania silversmith and clockmaker Joseph Doll, who worked in Harrisburg from about 1795 to his death in 1818. Doll was probably born in Lancaster in 1768, and was located on Second Street in Harrisburg by 1797. Silver bearing his mark is comparatively uncommon and is uniformly well executed. He is better known for his cased clocks, and perhaps known even more widely as a musical adapter and composer - specifically...

Offered is a fine and scarce pair of early Xenia (Greene County), Ohio coin silver teaspoons circa 1816-35 (see biographical information below) by William T. Stark. Although Stark seems to have had a long working life, by style these spoons should be no later than about 1830. Each spoon has a good clear maker's mark and a nicely engraved period script owner's initials. Both teaspoons are in overall good condition, with some dimples to the bowl but no large dents and no splits or repairs. This p...

Offered is a fine Southern coin silver sugar tongs by noted Norfolk, VA silversmith and jeweler Joseph Mosely Freeman, working in Norfolk alone or in partnership for most of the years between 1828 and 1871. These tongs have distinctive shoulders and are marked J.M.FREEMAN alone, and so probably date prior to his partnership with his son, and outside the dates of his other partnerships. Joseph Freeman was working alone between 1828 and 1832, 1836 to 1840, and 1844 to 1850. The most likely date...
