Offered is a lovely early American coin silver salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes. This piece has decoration in vogue in Philadelphia in the 1800-05 timeframe, and the decoration surrounds a period engraved script monogram. This piece also has a legible maker's mark. It measures about 4 inches in length and weighs around 9 grams. Condition is fair, with the bowl a little bit twisted, and some ripples to the handle (see pics) but no splits or repairs. All in all a lov...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddlethread pattern, made by Wood & Hughes and retailed by Walter Pearce & Company, working in Norfolk, VA circa 1831-44 and then in Mobile, Alabmaa circa 1844-67. This piece would certainly date to Pearce's Mobile period, probably the 1859-67 period. This piece has legible marks and a rubbed period engraved script monogram. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. Condition is fair, with moderate tip ...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith George Franciscus, who began his career in Baltimore around 1800, but who moved to Lancaster by about 1819, working there for the rest of his career, until about 1840. This piece can be confidently ascribed to Franciscus' Lancaster period, both by style and by the fact that it came with a number of other pieces from the local Lancaster area. This bears a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. ...

Offered is a nice early 19th Century pair of New Haven, Connecticut coin silver table spoons by noted silversmith Charles Hequembourg (1760-1851), who was born in France and who worked in Hartford from about 1790 to 1804, then in New Haven from about 1804-23, when he moved to Albany, NY. He worked in Albany, New York City and Buffalo into the 1840s, but died in New Haven. This pair of tablespoons should date to his New Haven period, about 1815, give or take a half a decade. This pair of spoon...

Offered is a nice late coin silver teaspoon bearing a rubbed but legible maker's mark or retailer's mark for John M. Peddinghaus, working in Colchester, Connecticut between about 1835 and 1865, and then in Marietta, Ohio around 1866. This spoon was probably made or sold by Peddinghaus toward the end of his career. It is engraved with a period script owner's name. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some light dings to th...

Offered is a pair of American coin silver teaspoons by noted early small-town Ohio silversmith Henry (Harry) Safford. Biographical information on Mr. Safford follows discussion of the spoons. These teaspoons each bear a period engraved script monogram of 'RB', and each also has a good clear maker's mark. This pair of spoons measure about 5 5/8 to 5 3/4 inches in length, and the total weight for the pair is about 28 grams. Condition overall is very fair, with some wear and dings to the bowls,...

Offered is a good American coin silver teaspoon with a clear maker's mark for Davis & Morong, a short-lived (circa 1820) partnership between Thomas Aspinwall Davis and Thomas N. Morong, both of Boston. This is the first example I've seen of this mark. This spoon is also engraved with a period script monogram. This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about twelve grams. Condition is fair, with light tip wear, some bumps and dings to the bowl, and a couple of bends to the hand...

Offered is a nice Canadian coin silver master salt spoon by William Norris Venning (b. 1795 in England, d. 1877 in New Brunswick), circa 1840. Venning worked circa 1819-71, so this salt spoon could a few years earlier or later than 1840. This piece measures about 4 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. It has an engraved period script monogram and a legible maker's mark. Condition is good overall, with some modest signs of use but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in al...

Offered is an American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark of Chauncey Johnson, who worked there from about 1820 into the 1840s, before relocating to Bastrop, Texas. This spoon can be dated to the 1820-27 period as it bears two strikes of a manufacturer's mark of an eagle head looking left, attributed by John R. McGrew to Green Hall of Albany, working circa 1810-27. This same mark appears frequently on work marked by Nehemiah B. Bassett (died 1819) alone and in partnership as Bassett & Wa...

Offered is a very nice fiddle pattern American coin silver table spoon by the well-known Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson, working circa 1825-50. This piece measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 62 grams, or around two troy ounces. It has a clear maker's mark and a well-executed period script monogram. Aside from a small spot of corrosion on the handle, which is not very noticeable, condition is pretty much pristine, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or rep...

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmiths and jewelers Francis and Frederick Thibault, working in partnership circa 1807-09. This is a quite early example of the fully developed fiddle form that would take precedence in Philadelphia in the 1810-25 period; the feature that gives away its age is the slight squaring of the shoulders. This spoon has a legible maker's mark or retailer's mark and a worn but legible period engraved script monogram. The ...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Shoemaker, circa 1805-15. This piece has a good period engraved script monogram and a clear maker's mark. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. Condition is fair at best, with some dents to the bowl and a slight twist to the handle, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of a short-lived style in Philadelphia coin silver!

Offered is a lovely American coin silver cream pitcher or creamer, circa 1825-40, and by style almost certainly made in Philadelphia. Philadelphia creamers and tea service pieces generally are among the most attractive and well-designed in the first half of the 19th Century.

This piece is decorated with milled bands that are very similar to one used by John or Samuel Warrington, and this band has only been observed on Philadelphia pieces to date, although it is certainly possible to find Ma...

Offered is a interesting American coin silver table spoon by Constant Southworth (a rare mark by a little-known maker), and partly over-struck by Guy Loomis. Mr. Southworth was born in 1802 in Sheffield, Massachusetts, and married there in 1823. By 1830 he was working about 6 1/2 miles away in Great Barrington, continuing there until after 1850. He died in 1876. It is quite likely Constant Southworth knew Guy Loomis (1795-1874), who spent the first period in his career (circa 1816-37) workin...

Offered is a very good and scarce 18th Century Scottish silver decanter label or bottle ticket, engraved for Madeira, by William and Patrick Cunningham of Edinburgh, circa 1790. As with some of these small pieces, this bottle ticket bears only the Cunningham's earlier maker's mark of WPC in a rectangular punch. This piece measures about 1 3/4 inches across and weighs about 9 grams. It is in good antique condition, with no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely and useful item, and nice to fi...

Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is excell...
