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 ...

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...

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...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddle pattern by noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward Lownes (1792-1834), and bearing one of his more attractive and uncommon maker's marks. 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 lovely and unusual (perhaps modeled on ancient Roman examples, perhaps the product of Victorian imagination) English sterling silver serving piece or perhaps a dessert or ice cream fork, by John and Henry Lias and fully hallmarked for London, 1846. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs a heavy 38 grams. There is no crest, armorial or monogram and no erasure. This would be a great serving piece for small items at the holidays or on any special occasion. All ...

Offered is a lovely and very early American coin silver table spoon by New York silversmith Peter Vergereau. According to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:

"Peter Vergereau is probably the individual born into New York City’s French community and baptised at the Église Françoise à la Nouvelle York on August 21, 1700. He was granted freeman status in 1721, which would have been the logical time for him to begin practicing his craft after an average apprenticeship. Vergereau was married ...

Offered is a lovely pair of late 18th Century Rhode Island coin silver table spoons by noted silversmith Thomas Arnold (b. 1735 - d. 1828), working in Newport between about 1760 and 1817. These tablespoons are decorated with period engraved script monograms, the placement and style of which closely relates to the engraving on other Thomas Arnold spoons of the period. These spoons by style should date to about 1785-1800, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon is marked with bot...

Offered is a very good and rare early American coin silver teaspoon by William McNeely (1791-1842), who worked in Morgantown, Virginia (later West Virginia) circa 1812-18, and then relocated to Ohio, working in Paris, Stark County circa 1818 and then St. Clairsville, Belmont County circa 1819 to at least 1829. By style, this piece could have been made in either state, but is more likely to be on the early side and therefore perhaps made in Morgantown. The unusually shaped neck is similar to th...

Offered is an interesting, fairly late American silver master salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes (1758-1820). This piece has a period engraved script monogram and is a standard circa 1810-20 fiddle pattern piece. The interesting part about this salt spoon is that it exhibits the remains of die-struck decoration to the bowl - something not often seen with salt spoons. This may have been a bird or some other device - one would have to take a look at what remains visible ...

Offered is an excellent early American coin silver dessert spoon by noted Lancaster, PA silversmith William Haverstick, Sr. (1756-1823), circa 1790-1800. Although many teaspoons by William Haverstick Sr. and Jr. (who used the same mark) have been observed, and a fair number of tablespoons, dessert spoons are much more rare. This particular piece measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 35 grams. It is graced with a very well executed period script engraved monogram of "AC" and h...

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 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 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...
