Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia silversmith John Fries, who was working in that city from about 1830 to 1858 or later. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is good, with only modest wear from normal use but with some minor scratches to the end of the underside of the handle. There are no splits or repairs. All in all a ...

Offered is a very good American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Thomas F. Albright (born circa 1811), working in that city circa 1835 to about 1860 or later. This spoon probably dates to the 1835-50 range as it bears the Philadelphia eagle pseudo-hallmark or trademark in use mainly between 1825 and 1850 or so. This spoon also has a clear, well-struck maker's mark, which was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece ...

Offered is a rare example of the work of Frankford (in NE Philadelphia) clock and watch maker and silversmith Samuel Huckel (b. 1798 - d. 1883). This teaspoon by style should date to the early part of Huckel's career, circa 1818-30. His silver flatware is very hard to find, and the mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece measures about 5 11/16 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. It has a good clear maker's mark and features...

Offered is a fine early set of 18th Century American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Daniel Dupuy Sr. (b. 1719 - d. 1807). The mark on these is given to him rather than to his son in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths", but of course the son could have used any of the father's marks at some point. These spoons should date by style to the 1785-95 period, though they could be a little later. There are five spoons in total. Four are in fairly good condition, with some surf...

Offered is a quite early (probably late 18th Century) Swedish silver teaspoon bearing only the Swedish "triple crown" control mark a maker's mark of LGW, apparently for Lorenz Georg Weis (b. 1762 - d. 1829), working in Norrköping from around 1791 (and probably earlier as he would have been 29 by then) to his death in 1829. This piece lacks a date letter but would appear to date to early in his career, probably before 1800. This piece also has a period engraved monogram to the reverse. It mea...

Offered is a good Victorian English sterling silver master salt spoon crested with an armorial of a duck, by noted London silversmith Charles Boynton (II), and fully hallmarked for London, 1863. This piece measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 6 grams. Condition is good overall, with some wear but no splits or repairs. The bowl is intentionally shallow. All in all a nice useful piece, over 150 years old!

Offered is a good pair of earlier Chicago coin silver spoons, bearing the mark of Samuel Hoard & Co., in business at 117 Lake St. from about 1850 to 1854. Chicago silversmiths, jewelers and watchmakers are not widely documented, and it is always a treat to find silver bearing their marks. These teaspoons also each have a period engraved script monogram. They measure about 5 7/8 inches in length on average, and the pair weighs a total of about 28 grams. Condition overall is good, with modest ...

Offered is a nice earlier French silver sugar shaker, referred to as a cuillere a sucre or saupoudreuse, en argent massif, or solid silver. This piece is fully hallmarked for Paris, 1819-38, and bears the maker's mark of Edmond Jamet, a specialist spoonmaker working in Paris around 1820-22. This mark appears as no. 00967 in Arminjon. This piece is fairly large at about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 74 grams. It is hand pierced and is in the fiddlethread or fiddle and thread pattern...

Offered is a good set of Georgian Irish sterling silver sugar tongs, fully hallmarked for Dublin, circa 1828-29, with a maker's mark of WC, most likely for Dublin silversmith William Cummins. According to web sources, Cummins worked from 1813 to 1846, was quite successful, and was expert at his craft. His name was apparently sometimes spelled “Comyns”. This set of sugar tongs measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs a solid 46 grams. There is no monogram or armorial, and no sign o...

Offered is a fine early Winchester, Virginia coin silver ladle (probably a sauce ladle but perhaps a cream ladle) by by well-known Virginia silversmith James Meredith, who spent the majority (1812-60) of his career working in or around Winchester, VA. Judging by style, this piece should date to about 1825-35, but could be somewhat earlier or later. While spoons by Meredith are not uncommon, pieces like this ladle are much harder to find. As one can imagine, only the most successful citizens mi...

Offered is a good Elmira, NY coin silver cream ladle by silversmith and jeweler Socrates Ayers (1814 - 1897), who worked in Elmira for most or all of his career. This piece is in very good condition, with only modest wear from normal use and no dents, splits or repairs. It has an unusual maker's mark that incorporates the city mark in the same punch. This piece also features a period engraved script monogram. This ladle measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. All in...

Offered is a good early American coin silver condiment spoon by celebrated silversmith John McMullin (1765 - 1843), working in Philadelphia from about 1795 through his death, mostly alone but in partnership between around 1811-1815. By style this piece would definitely fit in the 1795-1800 period, but could be a little later. It measures about 4 3/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. This piece has a good legible mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. Condition is...

Offered is a nice little American coin silver master salt spoon by silversmith Albert Titcomb (1802 - 1890), who was working in Portland, ME between about 1823-35 alone and between 1835-46 in partnership with Philip Titcomb in Portland. After 1846, Albert continued to work as a silversmith, but moved his shop to Bangor and worked there until about 1880. This piece was almost certainly made during Albert's Portland years, and the mark of TITCOMB in a serrated punch could have been used by him a...

Offered is a fine large American coin silver condiment spoon (probably a dry mustard spoon or horseradish spoon) by the Trenton, New Jersey partnership of Samuel and Edmund Roberts, whose biographical information follows the description of the piece. This spoon measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair, with some fine scratching on the surface, but no dents, splits or repairs. This piece has a period engraved script monogram and rubbed but legible make...

Offered is a nice set of four American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith, jeweler and spectacle maker Christian Smith, working circa 1820-33. These spoons each feature a period engraved script monogram and an attractive script maker's mark, as well as the ubiquitous Philadelphia eagle trademark of this period. These teaspoons measure about 5 3/8 inches in length on average, and the set of four weighs about 48 grams altogether. Condition ranges from good to excellent, with seve...

Offered is a nice serviceable but worn early American coin silver teaspoon by major Philadelphia and Quaker silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr., circa 1790. This spoon features die-struck birdback decoration, though it is about 80 percent worn off. The bowl also has wear and a few small dings. There are no splits or repairs. This spoon has a period engraved block monogram and the maker's mark for Richardson, Jr. is struck twice near the top of the stem. This is one of the earliest spoons I'v...

Offered is a scarce York, Pennsylvania coin silver teaspoon by John Brenise (1793 - 1846), who would have been working independently by about 1815 but for whom records are spotty. He is generally described as working in the 1830s and later, but this spoon is clearly earlier in style (probably circa 1825), and there is no reason to suppose he would have had a decade or more hiatus in his silversmithing and clockmaking career after his apprenticeship was completed. This teaspoon has an engraved ...

Offered is a good set of four Ohio coin silver spoons by little-known Cincinnati silversmith and jeweler Abraham Palmer, working circa 1833 into the 1860s. Palmer apprenticed in the house of Samuel Kirk & Co. in Baltimore, and commenced business on his own in Ohio around 1833. Although he worked alone for much of his career, the silver most commonly seen with a connection to him is that from a partnership with William Owen, Sr. as Palmer & Owen in the 1850s. Silver bearing one of his maker's ...
