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.

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.

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 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 good early American coin silver table spoon circa 1810-25 by well-known silversmith Thomas McConnell, who worked from about 1797 to 1818 in Wilmington, Delaware (with a brief stint in Baltimore in 1814 or so), and then in Richmond, Virginia from 1818 until his death in 1825. This piece could have been made in either location as McConnell had known production under taxation in both locations, though the majority of his work that has a provenance points to a Delaware origin.

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker John Reynolds (1770-1832), working from the 1790s through 1808 and probably much later. By style, this spoon should date to circa 1810 or later. This is one of several marks attributed to Reynolds; others include a different initials mark, and the mark J.Reynolds in script. This mark is shown in several reference works on Maryland silver. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. I...
