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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 fine carte de visite by important 19th Century photographer George Norman Barnard (1819-1902), who is best known for his important wartime images of the South, first while accompanying General Sherman on his Georgia campaign. Barnard's book, "Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign", is one of the most important collections of images of the Civil War. Barnard also recorded important images of the destruction in Charleston in around March 1865, and then went on to Columbia and the...

Offered is a very fine and earlier American coin silver cream pitcher by noted Philadelphia silversmith Robert Swan, working circa 1799-1817. This piece by style probably dates to around 1805-10. It is not a commonly seen style relative to earlier and later styles, and it has a nice presence to it. There is no engraving or sign of erasure in terms of monograms or family crests. The maker's mark used by Robert Swan is struck once inside the foot. This piece measures about 6 13/16 inches high...

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 rare and fine example of the work of the short-lived partnership of brothers Thomas Warner and Andrew Ellicott Warner, Sr., who formed their joint venture in 1805 and ended it when Thomas went to fight the British in the War of 1812. Each brother was exceptionally successful in his own right, working alone or otherwise, but for whatever reason work by the partnership is difficult to find, particularly with such a nice set of marks, including the partnership's maker's mark, the eagl...

Offered is a lovely set of 19th Century French silver tea or coffee spoons by Paris silversmith François 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 ...

Rutland lived only to the age of 42, dying in 1828. This piece is nicely pierced and has a very finely engraved period script monogram of WMH. It measures about 13 inches in length and weighs about 153 grams. Condition is good overall, with signs of normal usage but no big dings and no splits or repairs. A...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver birdback spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Abraham Dubois (born ca. 1751, died 1807), who flourished both in this profession and as a trader in goods, primarily in the West Indies. Dubois made some very fine silver, including outstanding coffee pots and sugar urns. This teaspoon dates to about 1785 by style, give or take five years, and is marked with Dubois' full name maker's mark. It is also engraved with period owner's initials, and the ba...

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 ...
