Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by itinerant Maryland and Pennsylvania silversmith and clockmaker Emanuel (or Emmanuel) Holsey (ca. 1798 - 1849), who apprenticed to Henry Biershing in Hagerstown, MD around 1815 and who was working on his own in Williamsport, MD circa 1820-21, Hagerstown circa 1821-23, Chambersburg, PA circa 1823-39, and perhaps in Union County, PA circa 1839-49, where he died. Holsey's silver is graced with his relatively crude maker's mark and a great eagle pse...

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker John Reynolds (1770-1832), working from the 1790s through 1808 and probably much later. By style, this spoon should date to circa 1810 or later. This is one of several marks attributed to Reynolds; others include a different initials mark, and the mark J.Reynolds in script. This mark is shown in several reference works on Maryland silver. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. I...

Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony and his son Michael. This partnership was short-lived, lasting only from 1810-14. The two spoons here were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" despite the rubbing of the marks, due to the extreme rarity of the mark of this partnership. The spoons are each also marked with the manufacturer's mark of Thomas Harper (working circa 1811-17), who also made silver for (Jean) Sim...

Offered is a fine early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr., circa 1790-1800. This teaspoon is initialed "CB" in period script and bears one of Richardson's larger maker's marks. This piece measures about 5 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition is good overall, with some surface wear and some minor dents and dings to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. There could have been a silver test given there is a small notch on the...

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr., circa 1790-1800. This teaspoon is initialed "SM" in period script and bears one of Richardson's smaller (and less common) maker's marks. This piece measures about 5 9/16 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is good overall, with some surface wear but no dents, splits or repairs. The surface is a little bright but I am fairly sure it was not machine buffed. All in ...

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by Burlington, NJ silversmith Nathaniel Coleman, circa 1790-1805. Coleman worked in Burlington from about 1790 to about 1835. Although the maker's mark is partly rubbed on this spoon, the part that is visible matches one of Nathaniel Coleman's known marks. This spoon is also engraved with an 1804 date, probably done later to commemorate an event like a wedding or birth. The front of the spoon bears a period engraved monogram. This piece m...

Offered is a fine and scarce rural Virginia coin silver master salt spoon bearing the maker's mark E.WILTSE for either Edmund Wiltse (working in Farmville, VA circa 1826-48) or his son Edward (working in Farmville circa 1847-99). I suspect this to be the work of the father, as this spoon has no manufacturer's marks (most of the later pieces do) and by style probably dates to the 1835-45 timeframe. However, there is no way to be sure. This piece measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs...

This piece bears Richards' maker's mark as well as a period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 4 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is very good, with no major dings or dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a fine earlier example of an American coin silver salt spoon!

Offered is a good little example of pre-Revolutionary American coin silver, in the form of a shell-back teaspoon circa 1760-75.

It measures about 4 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fairly good overall, with no splits or repairs. The only issue of note is that the shell decoration was struck with such force as to be visible wi...

Offered is a fine antique, William IV, Regency period, sterling silver, fiddle pattern dessert spoon and teaspoon made by Mary Chawner of London. Mary Chawner was the widow of William Chawner II and took over his business upon his death - her mark is often seen as the business continued to flourish under her leadership between 1834 and 1840.

Offered is a very good pair of American coin silver sugar tongs by the well known firm of Robert & William Wilson of Philadelphia. Surprisingly little is known about this firm, despite its prominence and the numbers of pieces that survive bearing one of the firm's marks. This pair of sugar tongs measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 54 grams. Each arm is marked with the Wilsons' maker's mark, and the exterior surface is finely engraved with decorative patterns. Perhaps one in ...

Offered is a fine early fiddle pattern American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark B.LORD, for Benjamin Lord, a silversmith who began his career in Rutland, Vermont and moved to Athens, Georgia by 1831. Benjamin died in Athens in 1843. His two sons, Benjamin Buel Lord and Ebenezer Lord, also worked in Athens, and in theory his son Benjamin B. Lord could have marked this spoon. By style, this spoon could date from the 1820s or 1830s, so it is unknown whether or not it was made in Ge...
