Offered is a very scarce set of four early North Carolina coin silver teaspoons by noted silversmith John Selph, working in Fayetteville from about 1804 through 1837, the year before his death. Most if not all of Selph's work is of his own manufacture, particularly the early pieces like these shoulder-less transitional fiddle spoons, which should date to the first decade or so of his career. Each spoon is clearly marked with a well-struck maker's mark, and each has a nicely executed period scr...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Greencastle, Indiana (1860-1887) jeweler Alexander R. Brattin, who trained in Cincinnati in one of the large shops (perhaps Duhme & Co.), and then established his own firm in Greencastle just prior to the outbreak of war. He seems to have found much success there, and opened branch locations in Danville and Spencer in the mid-to-late 1880s. He moved on to Kansas City and then St. Louis late in life, and passed away in 1897 or so. This sp...

Offered is a lovely set of 19th Century French silver tea or coffee spoons by Paris silversmith Fran├žois Pamphile Josan; these date to the post-1838 period. The gilding on each spoon is strong, and the design is nicely struck. Each spoon bears Josan's maker's mark and a fineness mark, perhaps for second standard (800/1000 fineness). These spoons are nicely decorated and have no engraved initials or crests, or any sign of erasure. These spoons measure about six inches in length, and the set ...

Offered is a lovely set of five early American coin silver teaspoons circa 1820-30 by York, Pennsylvania clockmaker and silversmith Richard Koch, working there between 1805 and his death in 1836, and succeeded by his nephew, Frederick B. Cook. Mr. Koch is known for his bird-back spoons and fine craft, but his silver is quite uncommon and he advertised mostly in German-language publications - hence he is not better documented. This set of spoons represents an good example of his craft. Each sp...

Offered is a lovely and quite early George II English sterling silver basting spoon or hash spoon by noted specialist spoonmaker Philip Roker II, working from the 1720s on. The maker's mark on this spoon was registered in August 1720 and used at least through 1735, and this piece is consistent with similar hash spoons with date letters in the 1730s. Interestingly, the marks accompanying Roker's maker's marks are pseudo-hallmarks, apparently occasionally used by Roker to give the appearance of ...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver dessert spoon in a single-struck variant of the Queen's pattern, by noted silversmith Frederick Marquand (b. 1799 - d. 1882), working in Savannah, GA between 1820-26 and in New York between 1826-39. Marquand was so successful that he retired at about age 40 in 1839 to manage his large land holdings and estates. He died in Connecticut, at his country house, having been born in that state in the last days of the 18th Century. Marquand produced and sold h...

Offered is a lovely old American coin silver table spoon by a maker who doesn't seem to have been documented, using the maker's mark R.MERRICK in a serrated punch. Examples of this man's work are in the Winterthur collection, with no location posited. It is evident, however, from the crudeness of the punch that a large-city origin point is unlikely. This piece is faintly engraved JK in period script. This tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. The maker'...

Offered is a very nice large American coin silver teaspoon by jeweler James A. Webb, who established his store in Janesville, Wisconsin circa 1856, and was in business at least through the 1860s. He died in 1885. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. It is engraved with a period script monogram, and is clearly marked with a maker's mark or retailer's mark of J.A.WEBB. Condition is very good overall, with modest tip and surface wear, but no major dents an...

Offered is a rare example of American coin silver made in Elyria, Ohio (a town somewhat west of Cleveland, near Lake Erie) - by the partnership of Seymour W. Baldwin and Orrin Cowles, working in partnership in Elyria between 1834 and 1839. This pair of sugar tongs measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 35 grams. The maker's mark of BALDWIN&COWLES in a rectangular punch is rubbed but quite legible. To see the maker's mark, click on the picture and scroll through the picture set...

Offered is a lovely Baltimore coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith and watch and clock maker, John Lynch (1761-1848), probably circa the 1830s, but perhaps a little earlier or later. This piece has an engraved period script monogram and also features, in addition to a maker's mark for Mr. Lynch, several pseudo-hallmarks, including a union shield, an eagle, and the letter "S". These hallmarks probably post-date the Assay period in Baltimore history, and I've only observed them on a handful...

This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 23 grams. Condition is fairly good, with no major dents and only moderate tip and surface wear; however there is a slight wave in the slim part of the stem, as can be seen in the photos. Some patience and careful bending and probably amend thi...

This piece bears the maker's mark of CLARK in a rectangular punch for Levi Clark, and is also graced with a period script monogram.

Offered is a very good and heavy American coin silver teaspoon with die-struck sheaf-of-wheat decoration to the handle, surmounting a period engraved script monogram. This piece is struck with the maker's mark of G.MECUM in a serrated punch, for George Mecum, working in Boston circa 1825-46. This piece probably dates to the 1820s. It measures about 6 1/16 inches in length and weighs a very heavy 23 grams or so. Condition is very good overall, with a tiny and very shallow ding in the bowl and...

Offered is a very scarce example of a Sheaf-of-Wheat pattern coin silver spoon from the Midwest - in this case from the Ashtabula, Ohio area. The maker is A.G. Peck, about whom little is known; he is believed to have worked in the Ashtabula area in the 1820s. This piece has an engraved period script monogram and a rubbed but legible maker's mark. Please click through the pictures to see everything. The die-struck sheaf-of-wheat decoration is in good shape. This piece measures about 6 1/16 i...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Wilmington silversmith James Guthre (1796-1877), who was working by about 1820 and continued to work for a fairly long period of time. Guthre was fairly prolific and this piece is a good example of his work. It bears a clear strike of his maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition overall is good, with a very minor, shallow dimple or two...

Offered is a an interesting American coin silver teaspoon by the little-known maker R. Carroll, about whom little seems to have been documented. This is interesting in that his working place is demonstrated by the marks on this piece. In addition to the maker's mark of R.CARROLL, there is a mark of YOUNGSTOWN.O for Youngstown, Ohio. This piece measures about 5 15/16 inches in length, and weighs about 19 grams. Condition is good overall, with a few tiny dimples to the bowl and one or two stub...

This piece bears a clear maker's mark for the partnership, as well as a period script monogram to the reverse of the handle. As can be seen in the pictures (please click through all of them), there is a also a small mark on the upper end of the handle where a silver...

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...
