Offered is a lovely and early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon circa 1775-85, by maker "JA"; I've not solved the maker of this mark (if you can, I will send you a coin silver teaspoon!), but a Hanoverian pattern teaspoon circa 1760-70 with the same mark is shown in the Winterthur online collection. In addition to the maker's mark, this piece is decorated with a period engraved block initial monogram of "O*F". One can dream up an instant ancestor for the original owner of this spoon, e....

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 a very good and quite heavy American coin silver table spoon and two matching and equally substantial table forks in the fiddlethread pattern by Marquand & Co., working in New York circa 1833-39. These pieces are marked with a clear, well-struck maker's mark and is also engraved with a very well done period script monogram of NDCM. Interestingly, the forks have a different pseudo-hallmark (an eagle) than does the tablespoon (a lion). The tablespoon measures about 8 5/8 inches in leng...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon decorated in a feather-edge Old English pattern style, with a period block monogram and worn die-struck shell decoration. This piece does not appear to have a maker's mark, but by style can be dated to the 1780-90 period, give or take a couple of years. It measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some modest tip wear and some very small dimples to the bowl. The handle ...

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 a good and scarce example of the mark of Kentucky jeweler John Beauchamp, working in Bowling Green, KY circa 1847-71. This piece measures about 3 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 9 grams. There is no monogram but no obvious sign of erasure. The manufacturer's marks and Beauchamp's mark are clear and crisp. Condition is good overall, with only moderate wear from normal use and no splits, dents or repairs. All in all a fine piece of Bowling Green coin silver!

Offered is a nice early 19th Century Georgian sterling silver sauce or gravy ladle in the fiddlethread and shell pattern, bearing the maker's mark of William Eley & William Fearn, and hallmarked for 1820. This piece has a period engraved faded armorial of a lion holding a device between its paws, while looking to its rear. This ladle measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 91 grams, or almost three troy ounces. Condition is fair to good overall, with some surface wear and rubbi...

Offered is a fine set of five American coin silver teaspoons by Buffalo, NY spoonmaker Philo Dubois (1812-1887), circa 1850. These spoons measure a large 6 1/2 inches in length, and weigh about 125 grams altogether. They are engraved with period script initials "CML" and have clear maker's marks. Condition on these spoons is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. However, one spoon has an area of scratching to the underside of the handle, perhaps due to a silver test. All in a...

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 fine group of three American coin silver egg spoons by the noted Philadelphia firm of Bailey & Co., circa 1863. Each spoon has a full set of marks for Bailey & Co., as well as manufacturer's marks presumably for George Sharp, and a tiny engraved date of 1863 to the reverse. This date is likely contemporaneous with the period script monogram inside the shield on the front of each spoon, and these pieces were probably given as a gift at a wedding or other important occasion. Each s...

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.

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...
