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 pair of very good American coin silver teaspoons by Baltimore silversmith Robert Brown, circa 1825-40; these each have a typical shape and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. What sets them apart, however, is the rare variant mark for Robert Brown - "R-.BROWN." - this is the first time I've seen a dash over the pellet after the first name. These little oddities can be fascinating. In any event, these are nicely made spoons with good weight. They measure about 5 9/1...

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!

This piece has a legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 6 1/8 inches in length, and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minor signs of normal use but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a nice Chicago 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 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...

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 nice Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon by scarce maker Frederick (H?) Smith of Philadelphia, working as a silversmith and jeweler between about 1833 and 1845, and alter as a case maker and pocket book manufacturer. The marks on this particular spoon were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This spoon also has a period engraved script monogram.

Offered is an excellent set of four well-made coin silver teaspoons 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 earlier teaspoon by LeHuray, Jr. This set of teaspoons is from the 1825-46 period (probably the 1830s), ...

Offered is an excellent and rare example of the wares of Bittrolff Brothers, a partnership in Evansville, Indiana around 1858-61 (I can supply digital newspaper clippings of the start and end of this partnership), between John Louis Bittrolff, Jr. (who went by "Louis"), and George H. Bittrolff. The Bittrolff jewelry business started with the father, John Louis, Sr., and the sons purchased his interest in 1858. After 1861 they set up competing businesses, offering Evansville a choice of jewelry...

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...

Each tablespoon has a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark, as well as a PURE COIN mark. Each of these spoons also has a well-executed period script engraved "LEM" monogram. These spoons measure a little under 9 inches in length on average, and the pair weighs a total of about 80 grams. Condition is fair ove...

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...

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...
