Offered is a fine set of three American coin silver tea spoons marked by Louis Muh, noted silversmith, jeweler, watchmaker and retailer of New Orleans, LA. Muh worked in New Orleans between about 1823 and 1853; he advertised his retirement in newspapers by July 1853. Although Muh appears to have had a long and successful career, silver bearing his mark is still quite uncommon...

Offered is a very good coin silver teaspoon marked Jacob in a conforming punch, with a sterling mark of STER and a harp mark. These marks are very much like Irish provincial marks, but this teaspoon is definitely an American piece, probably from the Baltimore area. In 2014 I sold a tablespoon with the same maker's mark, but with a Union Shield pseudo-hallmark and another mark of the letter S...

Offered is a fine and scarce early Xenia (Greene County), Ohio coin silver dessert spoon circa 1816-35 (see biographical information below) by William T. Stark. Although Stark seems to have had a long working life, by style this spoon should be no later than about 1835. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and nicely engraved period script owner's initials. It is in overall good condition, with some dimples to the bowl but no large dents and no splits or repairs...

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 an unusually well-preserved Pennsylvania coin silver pictureback tea spoon by William Haverstick, Sr. or Jr. of Lancaster; rather than the somewhat more common birdback type, this is a wheatback spoon found only on spoons made by members of the Haverstick family. This particular spoon is engraved with period block initials and has a late,maker's mark, when the die was already wearing out. The die-struck wheat decoration, however, is quite well struck and is about 70 to 80 percent un...

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". Condition ...

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. This beaker or julep cup measures about 3 inches to the to...
