Offered is a lovely pair of circa 1846 Queen's pattern coin silver dessert forks, measuring about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighing about 58 grams for the pair. These forks are marked with the retailer's mark of Harris, Stanwood & Co. of Boston (working circa 1842-47) and manufacturer's marks of Gale & Hughes, with a pattern mark for 1846. Each fork is also engraved "P" in period script lettering to the reverse. These forks are small but heavy, and although both forks have sings of use (e.g...

Offered is a fine and heavy early American coin silver table spoon by noted Reading, PA jeweler Henry Kessler, working in that town from about 1850-82. This piece appears to date from the 1850s, and bears Kessler's mark and a town mark for Reading. This piece measures about 8 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. It is engraved in period script, and the monogram may be SAD, SD or perhaps SN. Condition on this piece is very good, with one minor and shallow ding, but no splits or rep...

Offered is a fine carte de visite by important 19th Century photographer George Norman Barnard (1819-1902), who is best known for his important wartime images of the South, first while accompanying General Sherman on his Georgia campaign. Barnard's book, "Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign", is one of the most important collections of images of the Civil War. Barnard also recorded important images of the destruction in Charleston in around March 1865, and then went on to Columbia and the...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved Ivy pattern pierced ladle with gilt bowl, by Henry Hebbard (patented circa 1865) and later Whiting. This piece dates to the first years of the sterling era, probably around 1865-75. It measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 40 grams. The only marks are the patent date mark and a sterling mark, as this piece seems not to have made it to sale by a retailer. This piece was never engraved with a monogram or crest - perhaps it was taken home ...

These spoons measure about 8 3/8 inches to 8 1/2 inches in length, and weigh a total of about 111 grams. Condition is fair, with the bowls being a bit out of round and with some small dings, and light tip wear, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a nice pair, good ...

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver tablespoon in a specific variation of the fiddle pattern with flared shoulders and pointed end that I've observed only in Kentucky pieces. This piece is engraved with a worn period script family name, and is marked only W.P.LOOMIS, for the Frankfort, KY silversmith, jeweler and watchmaker. He seems to have first appeared in Frankfort around 1809, and was born in Massachusetts circa 1794. This tablespoon, measuring about 8 3/4 inches in length and weighin...

Offered is a lovely and rare example of the earlier of two maker's marks used by S. Robb, a mysterious figure working in Xenia and/or Chillicothe, Ohio, probably between about 1820 and 1840.

This piece appears to be from the 1820s, given the wrigglework arch drop and the shoulders. This spoon has a nicely executed period engraved script monogram and an excellent strike of Robb's integrated eagle maker's mark, probably cut by the same die-sinker who made similar marks for Arundel Hill and Th...

Offered is a lovely and heavy early Victorian English sterling silver fish server by the well-known partnership of London silversmiths William Theobalds and Robert Metcalfe Atkinson, working together circa 1838-40. Though short-lived, this partnership produced a fair amount of high-quality flatware and servers.

This fish slice has a nicely executed pierced pattern, and extremely clear and well preserved hallmarks and maker's mark. It also has one of the most unusual family crests or armori...

Offered is a interesting American coin silver cream or sauce ladle by Constant Southworth (a rare mark by a little-known maker). 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.

This piece measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 23 grams. Condition is fair, as there is no monogram and the piece was likely buffed at so...

Offered is a very rare set of three early American coin silver tea spoons by Easton, Maryland silversmith Robert Kersey, about whom little has been published. Birdback teaspoons by Mr. Kersey with the same maker's mark that appears on these spoons are known, and Kersey's traditional working date is given as circa 1793. It is evident from the style of these spoons that he worked a while longer, as the squared shoulders were in use mostly from 1805-10, give or take a couple of years. These teaspoo...

This piece has a clear, well-struck mark and a period engraved script monogram. This table spoon measures about 8 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 44 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of Dayton coin silver from more than 150 years ago!

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver table spoons by noted New York City silversmith Garret Forbes (1785-1851), who worked primarily from about 1805 to about 1820. These spoons each have a very clear maker's mark (see pics) and a finely engraved period script monogram. The spoons each measure about 8 3/4 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about 110 grams. Condition is good overall, with a slightly bright but not machine-buffed surface, and a minor waviness in the ...

Offered is an interesting fiddle pattern American coin silver teaspoon with a faded period engraved script monogram, and a maker's mark of J.HARTT. This mark has been tentatively ascribed to Judah Hart(t), who spent most of his working life in Connecticut, and then moved to Brownhelm, Ohio in 1822. Judah Hart died in Brownhelm in 1824 and is buried there. It is possible this spoon was made in Ohio, and it certainly dates to the late period in Mr. Hart(t)'s career. This piece measures about 6...

This piece also has a period engraved script monogram that is partially rubbed. This spoon measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 21 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some surface wear and a few dimples in the bowl, but no splits or repairs. This is a nice example of an interestin...

Offered is a gorgeous pair of American coin silver sugar tongs by noted silversmith Harvey Lewis (1783-1835), working in Philadelphia circa 1805-11 in partnership as Lewis & Smith, and working alone in Philadelphia circa 1812-25, before his health declined and he gave up silversmithing. Despite a shorter working career, Harvey Lewis established himself as one of the leading silversmiths of his day in Philadelphia, and his work is nearly always superb. His pieces are represented in every major ...

Offered is a good Tuscan pattern American coin silver tablespoon, circa 1850, retailed by Harbottle & Smith of Auburn, NY. This pattern was patented by Michael Gibney in 1846, and has remained popular ever since. This tablespoon measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs a good 62 grams, or about two troy ounces. It is engraved with a fancy script monogram that appears to be somewhat later, probably over an erasure. It is well done, however. Condition overall is very good, with minima...
