Offered is a rare set of six American coin silver spoons by celebrated silversmith John Germon of Philadelphia, working circa 1785-1825, if I recall correctly. Available biographical information on Germon is in Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths." Mr. Germon's work is nearly always of the highest quality, and he had a number of different, aesthetically pleasing, maker's marks. These teaspoons by style should date to about the 1805-15 timeframe, and each bears Germon's maker's mark of his sur...

Offered is a nice pair of American coin silver fiddle thread pattern master salt spoons by Samuel Kirk, circa 1825-50. These spoons bear period script engraved monograms and Kirk's maker's mark, along with an 11oz silver fineness mark. These spoons measure about four inches in length and weigh a total of about 28 grams for the pair. Condition is only fair as the spoons have probably been buffed, but there are no major dings and no splits or repairs. All in all a good pair of Baltimore coin s...

Offered is a scarce American coin silver dessert spoon by A. C. Billon of Davenport, Iowa, circa 1849-65. Billon, whose first name appears from period newspaper notices to have been Alfred, started the first jewelry store in Davenport in 1849, and may have been in business as late is the 1890s. He may or may not have been related to the famous silversmith Charles Frederick Billon of St. Louis, and his progeny. This dessert spoon should date by style to the 1849-65 era. It is marked with Bill...

Offered is a good American coin silver table spoon by well-known Philadelphia silversmith (John) Christian Wiltberger (1769-1851), working from the 1790s into circa 1820 or perhaps later. This piece is an interesting example in that it has more of a New York feel than most of his pieces. It measures about 8 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 52 grams. This piece has a legible maker's mark and a very good period script engraved monogram. Condition is fairly good, with some tip wear and min...

Offered is a very fine large Georgian sterling silver stuffing spoon or platter spoon made by Edinburgh silversmith William Marshall and hallmarked for 1816-17. Scottish silver platter spoons are harder to find than English examples, and this one is in good condition, with no splits or repairs. There is one very small and shallow dimple in the bowl, and one tiny scratch on the handle. This piece bears clear hallmarks and a well-struck maker's mark, and it is also engraved with a period script...

Offered is a fine American coin silver soup ladle by little-known Cincinnati silversmith Francis Clark, working only from about 1846-50. This piece measures about 13 inches in length and weighs about 156 grams. It features period engraving of "M. S. Smith" presumably for the original owner. The unusual thing about this piece is that it bears a well-struck city mark of CINCINNATI in addition to the maker's mark. Condition on this piece is good, with no dents, splits or repairs; however, the s...

Offered is a fine Georgian English sterling silver wine label or bottle ticket in the "two putti" style, first introduced by Sandilands Drinkwater in the mid-18th Century, and widely copied by 18th and 19th Century specialist label makers thereafter. This piece is hallmarked for 1807, and the maker's mark of J.A may be for Joseph Angell. This piece measures about 2 3/8 inches across and weighs about 28 grams.

Offered is a fine and useful English sterling silver wine label or bottle ticket made in the Georgian era, and hallmarked apparently for 1806 and probably London. The maker's mark is partially rubbed, but appears to be ?S over ?B. This piece is made to be used to denote Madeira wine, from the Portuguese island. It measures about 1 3/4 inches wide and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is very good overall, with a very slight ripple to one side that is difficult to discern. All in all a lovely ...

Offered is an exceptional set of five American coin silver table spoons in the rare (for American silver this early) Regency pattern "Hourglass", with Union Shell heels. This pattern is very similar to the Kings and Queens or Rosette patterns, and is distinguished primarily by the hourglass device partway down the handle. These pieces, bearing the maker's mark of the Thibault family of silversmiths (Felix, Francis and Frederick, brothers, and possibly Francis Sr., the father), working in Phila...

Offered is a very fine and rare set of six early American coin silver dessert spoons bearing the maker's mark of Andrew Ellicott Warner, Sr., and fully marked with Baltimore assay marks for the year 1819. It is challenging to find a complete set of dessert spoons this far back, much less a set with Baltimore assay office hallmarks. This substantial set bears clear marks on each spoon, as well as a period script monogram. The spoons average about 7 3/8 inches in length, and they weigh about 24...

This is the hardcover version, which is going for a minimum of $500 on Amazon. This copy is in excellent condition, with only modest wear from normal use and no damage or discoloration to the pages. This is the seminal reference on Cork silversmiths, and it is surprisingly helpful for the advanced coll...

Offered is a fine and very early Ohio coin silver master salt spoon or condiment spoon by Columbus and Wooster silversmith Lindel (or Lindol) Sprague. Mr. Sprague was born October 12, 1798 in Cooperstown, New York. According to information online, he appears to have been apprenticed to William Platt of Columbus, OH around 1810, and by 1815 was in business for himself. He was master to his brother Hezekiah from around 1817 to 1820 in Columbus, before relocating to Wooster around 1820. He work...
