Offered is a nice pair of American coin silver dessert spoons by little-known Connecticut silversmith Nathaniel Langdon Proctor (1824-1908), working in Oxford, CT circa 1845. It appears Mr. Proctor was not successful in his chosen career, as he was listed by the 1850 census as a 'pedler' (peddler). His mark certainly seems to be uncommon. These two dessert spoons each have a period engraved script monogram, and each has a well-struck example of Nathaniel L. Proctor's maker's mark. These spoo...

Offered is a lovely and scarce Maine coin silver dessert spoon by little-known Hallowell silversmith Sullivan Kendall (1787-1853), working in Hallowell between 1807 and 1850. This spoon by style should date to the latter part of Sullivan Kendall's career. In addition to a period engraved script monogram, this spoon has a very good, clear strike of Sullivan Kendall's maker's mark, S.KENDALL in roman capitals in a rectangular punch. Sullivan advertised making silver spoons to order, and was fai...

The tablespoon also has a period engraved script monogram of "PB". This piece measures about 8 1/2 inches in length and weighs 35 grams. Condition is very good overall, with very modest wear from normal us...

Offered is a rare and important early American coin silver sugar tongs by Chambersburg, Pennsylvania clockmaker and silversmith Charles Young (fl. 1791-1833), circa 1791-1800. It is extremely unusual to find such early American silver from a Chambersburg craftsman, and these tongs are an exceptional example of Charles Young's work, which is exceedingly rare. These tongs are marked with a clear strike of Charles Young's maker's mark once on each arm, and the tongs are also decorated with a peri...

Offered is a very scarce pair of early American coin silver table spoons by noted Philadelphia and later St. Louis silversmith Charles Frederick Billon. These by style would have been made in his St. Louis period. Each bears a legible maker's mark for Billon (one better than the other - see pictures), as well as a period engraved script monogram of "ED". These impressive tablespoons measure about 9 1/8 inches in length and weigh a total of about 100 grams. Condition is fairly good overall, w...

Offered is a nice example of the work of Massachusetts and New Hampshire silversmith William Coffin Little (1745-1816), who worked in Massachusetts in the late 18th Century, and in Salisbury, NH between about 1800 and his death in 1816. This spoon by style should date to about 1810, so would likely have been made in Salisbury. This piece has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a rubbed period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Cond...

Offered is a lovely Victorian English sterling silver master salt spoon by the noted firm of James and Josiah Williams of Bristol, England (though because Bristol had no assay office most of their silver was hallmarked at the Exeter assay office. Their information appears below. This piece is fully hallmarked as having been assayed at Exeter in 1865, and bears a clear maker's mark. It also has a nice engraved period script monogram. This master salt spoon measures about 3 13/16 inches in len...

Offered is a nice set of five American coin silver dessert spoons bearing the scarce maker's mark of Prouhet & Witt, a St. Louis partnership of Hyppolite Prouhet and Thomas D. Witt that lasted from 1857 to 1862 or so. Each spoon has a legible maker's mark and also features a period engraved script monogram. Please review all pictures. These spoons measure about 7 1/8 inches in length on average, and the set weighs a total of about 134 grams. Condition is fair at best, with a ripple in one ha...

This American coin silver tablespoon dating to about 1820-40 is not for sale, but rather one that I need some help with. It measures about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. It has a faint period script engraved monogram running across the top of the handle, and a maker's mark of D.G in a rectangular punch. This piece has a mid-Atlantic or Midwestern feel, though it could be from some places in the American South outside of the major cities. It is almost certainly not by David...

Offered is a very scarce example of the maker's mark or retailer's mark of John P. Shinckle, working in Philadelphia around 1825 for a short period. This piece has a clear maker's or retailer's mark, as well as a floret mark usually associated with John Curry. This spoon also features a period engraved script monogram. The mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Conditio...

Offered is a rare American coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of a Minnesota jeweler, D. C. Greenleaf, working in St. Paul between the mid-1850s and his death around 1880. Although a 25-year old jeweler by the name of D.C. Greenleaf was recorded in the 1860 census for Shelby County, Tennessee, it is more likely that this spoon and mark relate to the Minnesota man, who had a long and successful career. In addition to clear marks, this spoon features a period engraved monogram. This piece me...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia silversmith Jacob Stockman, working alone and in partnership circa 1819 to 1850 as a silversmith and pencil and thimble maker, and from 1850-55 as a pencil-maker and jeweler. This spoon has a well-struck maker's mark and a rubbed but legible period engraved script monogram. The maker's mark on this spoon is one of Jacob Stockman's more scarce marks. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. Cond...

Offered is a lovely Newport coin silver spoon by Rhode Island silversmith William Stoddard Nichols (b. 1785 - d. 1871), who was born and died in Newport, and who worked there as a silversmith and jeweler at least from 1808 into the 1860s. This piece has a clear maker's mark for Nichols, a full location mark for Newport, RI, and a fineness mark of PURE COIN. All of the marks are clear and legible (see all the pictures for closeups of the marks). This piece also features a period engraved scrip...

Offered is a good Philadelphia coin silver spoon bearing the extremely rare mark of John & Phineas Fries, circa 1837 (the single year of their partnership). While coin silver spoons and other items bearing only the maker's mark of John Fries are somewhat common, and those with just Phineas Fries' maker's mark are scarce but not rare, the mark of their partnership is very hard to find. The mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan, and in twenty ye...

Offered is a nice set of four unengraved French solid silver tea or coffee spoons, by style probably dating to the 1880-1920 period, and hallmarked for Paris, first standard (950) silver, though the standard is difficult to discern in these hallmarks. The maker's mark appears to be PD, with a device between the initials - perhaps the head of a bull or cow. These spoons have never had a monogram. They measure about 5 3/16 inches in length, and weigh a total of 71 grams. Condition is fairly go...

Offered is a lovely set of five late Chinese Export Silver tea or coffee spoons in an Arts & Crafts or Art Deco style, bearing ideograms that appear to potentially be for jeweler Tai Shan, working in Peking (Beijing) circa 1890-1935. I could of course be wrong, and would welcome any corrections. Please review the pictures for a closeup of the marks. The front of these spoons are engraved or decorated with an ideogram, which likely is not a monogram specific to an individual but rather an ideo...

Offered is a nicely preserved circa 1815-30 American coin silver teaspoon, with a maker's mark of C flanked by etoiles. I didn't research the mark, but it may be a mark used by Joseph H. Clark of Portsmouth, NH, as the spoon feels like it could be from that general area. It is very likely from New England, given the style, proportions and monogram. This piece has a good set of marks and a the engraved script monogram is period. This spoon measures about 5 5/16 inches in length and weighs abo...

Lander, working in Washingtonville, NY between 1826 and 1845, and between 1846 and 1870 in New York City. By style, this ladle would very likely date to his Washingtonville period. This ladle has manufacturer's marks and Lander's retailer's mark, and also has a period engraved script monogram. Condition is very good overall, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs.
