Offered is a very scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Horace P. Woodbridge, who appears to have worked in St. Louis around 1835. His mark is known on at least one piece that also bears a city mark of ST.LOUIS. See "Missouri's Silver Age" by Norman Mack, page 150. Mr. Woodbridge apparently died young at age 47; it is unknown how long he was able to make or mark silver. This salt spoon is quite small at about 3 1/2 inches in length, and weighs about 6 grams...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver table spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Harvey Lewis. Mr. Lewis is known for his Empire and late Neoclassical silver; his career spanned the period 1802-25, though he may have worked as late as 1827, whereupon he became ill and largely retired. He died about 1835. These tablespoons measure a little over 9 inches in length, and together weigh about 100 grams. They are monogrammed with a period engraved script "SJ" or ""SI"...

Offered is a fine early American coin silver beaker by Philadelphia silversmith John Aitken, working in that city from at least 1780 through about 1808. Aitken's biography is given in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" and elsewhere. This beaker is graced with a very well executed period script monogram, the large size of which indicates a likely earlier date for the beaker, perhaps around 1780-95. The maker's mark is also legible...

Biographical information on Mr. Beatty follows the description of this piece. This spoon is engraved "R.McClure" in period script and has good legible mark.

Offered is a set of three heavy coin silver table forks by little-known Pottsville and Lebanon, Pennsylvania jeweler James H. Kelly. The first mention I have found of Kelly is a newspaper advertisement run in 1846 by Kelly, seeking an apprentice watchmaker to work with him in Pottsville. Mr. Kelly stayed in Pottsville until at least the late 1850s, as his son was born in Pottsville in 1855 and the family relocated to Lebanon, PA when the son was "quite small." In Lebanon, James H. Kelly opera...

Offered is a lovely decorated early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia makers Aime and Charles Brandt, working in partnership circa 1800-14. This spoon has a unique shape and is very well engraved with decorative elements as well as a script monogram. The shape is similar to certain spoons by William Walker, but was probably made by the Brandts. This piece also bears a die-struck shell decoration to the heel. The maker's mark is quite legible. Condition overall is very good...

Offered is a good American coin silver (many would consider this Southern coin silver) teaspoon bearing the maker's mark of F. J. Posey. Frederick J.

The spoon measures a litt...

Offered is a fine and rare American coin silver dessert spoon by little-known Harrisburg, Pennsylvania silversmith and jeweler George W. McCalla. McCalla was working in Harrisburg in the 1860s, but his origins are unknown, at least to me. He died at the age of 46 in 1866 after suffering from a debilitating illness for some time. His wife carried on with the shop and its operations for another three years, until closing the business at the end of 1869. This dessert spoon measures about 7 1/4 ...

Offered is a rare and fine early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Fincastle and Liberty, Virginia silversmith Charles Aunspaugh (b. 1799, d. 1887). Aunspaugh lived and worked most of his life in Fincastle (and was even apparently postmaster of Fincastle for a period of time), though he spent a few years (possibly in partnership throughout) in Liberty. Little is known about Aunspaugh's life, and only a few teaspoons are known as evidence of his work. This spoon probably dates to a...
