Offered is a lovely American coin silver gravy ladle or sauce ladle by Edward and David Kinsey of Cincinnati, working circa 1844-61. This piece has a twist handle and excellent decoration, as well as a period monogram to the front, and a period inscription to the back. The inscription is almost certainly of the same date as the monogram. The monogram is distinctive enough to permit a possibility of tracking down the original owner, but then, Cincinnati is a large town! This piece measures ab...

Offered is a pair of early American coin silver teaspoons decorated in the New York fashion, and marked R&C in script in a conformed punch, most likely for Riker & Clapp, working in New York City between 1800 and 1802. This may be a mark that was not long in service, as it seems very uncommon. These spoons have rubbed but legible maker's marks, and a period engraved monogram to each handle. They measure about 5 1/2 inches in length, and weigh a total of about 25 grams. Condition is fair at b...

Offered is a nice American coin silver master salt spoon by Jabez Gorham and son John Gorham of Providence, Rhode Island, working in partnership between 1841 and 1850. Their maker's mark (one of several used by the partnership) is "J.G. & Son." in a banner. The maker's mark on this piece is well-struck and well preserved. This piece is also engraved with the family name of the original owner(s). It measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 5 grams. Condition is fair, with some ...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon, circa 1795-1805, by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 6 inches in length and weighing about 19 grams. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "SM". This spoon is marked to the reverse with one of McMullin's earlier maker's marks. Condition is very good overall, with modest wear from normal use and one tiny ding to the bowl, but no splits or rep...

Offered is an interesting and odd American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 7/8 inches in length and weighing about 12 grams, marked CLARK in crude roman caps. I can't tell whether this is a legitimate mark, or a spurious mark meant to emulate one for Joseph Clark, Jr. - the placement of the letters are quite close to his known full name mark, and the die looks consistent with one that was worn and cut down. However, the piece has some question marks. There is a later m...

Offered is a nice unmarked coin silver teaspoon, probably from the greater Boston area or elsewhere in New England, engraved with a period script monogram. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some wear and some small dings to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable coin silver spoon reaching its two-hundredth birthday!

Offered is a very rare example of the work of Guilford, Connecticut silversmith Samuel Parmelee (Parmele), working circa 1757 to perhaps his death in 1807. His work seems to be very rare from about 1775 and later, though this spoon has his documented mark and appears to date to about 1800. Samuel Parmelee served in the Revolutionary War, ultimately achieving the rank of Captain. This spoon measures about 5 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 11 grams. The maker's mark is well-struck and st...

Offered is a lovely pair of two-century old Swedish silver sugar tongs, by a silversmith with the initials SMI, SHI, IHS or IMS, working in Göteborg (Gothenburg) around 1814, the date of assay of this piece. This pair of sugar tongs is quite nice in terms of decoration, and has a period script monogram to one arm. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 36 grams. Condition is very good, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example ...

This piece has a period engraved script monogram to the front of the handle, and later engraving to the reverse. This piece measures about 8 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 42 grams. Condition is very good overall, with only minor wear, no major dents, and no splits or repairs. All in all a nice old Chicago silver tablespoon!

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon retailed by Lyons, Iowa jeweler John H. Potts, working in that town from 1854 to his death in 1914. This piece probably dates to no later than about 1870, and most likely is from the 1860s. The John H. Potts whose retailer's mark appears on this spoon (which is also marked Lyons for the city), is apparently not the same man who was advertising as a silversmith and dentist in Fayette, Missouri in 1844 - the Iowa J. H. Potts was born in Harper's...

This piece is engraved "Sarah Wilson" to the reverse in period script. The maker's mark is clear and legible. This piece measures about 3 11/16 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is very good, with minor wear from normal use but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example of this mark a...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by silversmith Guy Loomis circa 1825-45; it has a clear maker's mark for Loomis and is engraved with period script initials "LL" for the original owner. By style, it could date either to Loomis' time in Sheffield, Massachusetts (circa 1816-37), or to his Erie period, from 1837 to 1874. This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is excellent overall, with minor signs of wear from normal use, but n...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of John Valiant of Palmyra, as well as a mark for the city. John Valiant is recorded in "Missouri's Silver Age" as arriving in Missouri in 1848 from parts unknown; this may or may not be correct as his daughter's obituary put his arrival date as 1837 and the Marion County genealogy folks indicate his arrival date was about 1838. In any event, the spoon offered here probably dates to the 1840s or 1850s. It measures about 5 3...

Offered is an excellent pair of Philadelphia coin silver dessert spoons by noted silversmiths Lewis & Smith, circa 1805-11, with a pair of Philadelphia coin silver teaspoons by Edward Lownes of the same date, all bearing the same exceptionally engraved period script monogram. These spoons were located separately many years apart, but originate from the same service and have now been reunited. The dessert spoons measure about 6 7/8 inches in length and the teaspoons about 5 7/8 inches in length...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia watchmaker and jeweler Benjamin Robinson, working circa 1818-44. This piece has a good clear mark for. Mr. Robinson and a city mark for Philadelphia; it also has the eagle with shield mark thought perhaps to denote manufacture by R. & W. Wilson, though to my knowledge this hasn't been proved. Please take a look at all the photographs. This piece is also engraved with a period script monogram. It measures about 5 3/4 inches...

Offered is an extraordinary set of four early American coin silver dessert spoons by Washington, DC silversmiths Joseph Bentley and William Wood, circa 1809. This brief partnership, conducted at the Washington Navy Yard, lasted only from December 1808 through the end of August 1809, when it was dissolved by mutual consent. Silver bearing the mark of this partnership is of course extremely rare, and this set of dessert spoons with extremely well preserved maker's marks is very likely the best s...

Offered is a lovely set of three large and heavy early coin silver table spoons, unmarked but stylistically related to the set of four dessert spoons by Bentley & Wood (Washington, DC circa 1809) just listed, with the same engraved initial of "B". These spoons are slightly different at the neck and have a minor difference in the engraving, but have the same bowl shape and general proportions; they came on the market at the same time and from the same state as the Bentley & Wood spoons, and may ...

This piece is not for sale, but help me solve the mystery of who made this piece, and I will send you a very nice coin silver spoon in thanks! These twist-arm American coin silver sugar tongs measure about 7 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 49 grams. The maker's mark is a fairly crude SR in a serrated punch. Please take a look at all the pictures. The engraved arms and circular reserve might indicate a Western Pennsylvania or Midwestern, or perhaps Shenandoah Valley origin, but so far I'...
