Offered is a nice little Russian silver spoon, in a historical or traditional style, hallmarked on the side of the stem for St. Petersburg, circa 1889. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair at best as the handle has some twisting and waviness. However, this piece could still be used as a sugar spoon, for tea, etc. All in all a nice old Russian silver spoon!

Offered is a useful English sterling silver Georgian sauce or gravy ladle, bearing hallmarks including a lion passant and date letter that appear to correspond to those used in 1767. I can't make out the maker's mark, but the initials used appear to include a "W". There is no engraved crest or monogram, and no obvious sign of erasure though doubtless there was one at one time. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 41 grams. The bowl is pleasingly deep, and this pi...

Offered is a lovely and early American coin silver tablespoon by Tennessee silversmith Joseph T. Elliston (b. 1779 - d. 1856), who was purportedly Nashville's first silversmith. He also served as the fourth mayor of Nashville. This piece dates to about 1805-15, and Elliston is thought to have ceased making silver by around 1820, given the forms observed with his mark. This piece has a good legible maker's mark. The monogram, if there was one, is long gone, though there is no obvious sign of ...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Henry Erwin, circa 1816-34. Although spoons by Erwin are not uncommon and I have handled many, the pseudo-hallmark on these spoons to the right of the maker's mark are unique in my experience. What exactly they represent visually is a mystery - it looks to me like a hunting dog looking back over its shoulder when oriented so that the bottom is toward the name mark. These spoons also have period en...
