Offered is a good pair of American coin silver spoons by the little-seen maker Cyrus King Wentworth (1816-47), who worked for a few years in Boston after his apprenticeship and then spent the rest of his career in Georgia, first in Milledgeville (1840-44) and then in Macon (1844-47) before his untimely death.

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver

Let's face it: after months and months of enduring the pandemic, you're probably ready for a drink and perhaps two. Might as well do it in style with this high quality antique julep cup.

Though other (albeit some slightly cheaper; some not) examples by Mr. Hudson have come on the market, none that I've seen have --at just shy of six (5.94) Troy ounces --been so heavy and well constructed. A few very minor dings but fine overall condition and monogrammed in period script as shown.... Click for details
