Offered is a useful English sterling silver Georgian sauce or gravy ladle, bearing hallmarks including a lion passant and date letter that appear to correspond to those used in 1767. I can't make out the maker's mark, but the initials used appear to include a "W". There is no engraved crest or monogram, and no obvious sign of erasure though doubtless there was one at one time. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 41 grams. The bowl is pleasingly deep, and this pi...

Offered is a nice decorative American coin silver handled cup, probably a gift to a child upon christening or other special occasion. This piece is engraved with a period script monogram to the reserve in the front, and does not have a maker's mark. It measures about 3 1/4 inches high to the top of the handle, and weighs about 68 grams. Condition is good overall, aside from the foot, which is dented and out of round. Surprisingly, there is no push of the foot into the interior of the body. ...

Offered is a nice little Russian silver spoon, in a historical or traditional style, hallmarked on the side of the stem for St. Petersburg, circa 1889. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair at best as the handle has some twisting and waviness. However, this piece could still be used as a sugar spoon, for tea, etc. All in all a nice old Russian silver spoon!

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon measuring about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighing about 52 grams. This piece bears the mark of Newell Harding of (during this period of 1820-30) Haverhill, MA, but Harding doesn't appear to be the maker, as his mark is overstriking that of another silversmith. It is not surprising that this would be the case, as this piece is frankly superior to much of Harding's work. Please take a look at all the pictures for closeups of the bowl, back of...

Offered is a nice Kentucky silver table fork from the Louisville establishment of Gustav Adolph Schultz (b. 1842, d. 1892), engraved for the Pate family of that city.

Offered is a nice long-handled condiment spoon bearing a rare mark - that of H. N. Greene of Mansfield, Ohio, working there circa 1855-70. This is the first and only piece of silver bearing this maker's mark that I've seen. This piece is engraved in period script for the original owner, and has a very clear and well struck maker's mark. It measures about 5 3/16 inches in length, and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair, with some ripples to the handle and a ding to the bowl, but no splits...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 1/2 inches in length and weighing about 9 grams, and dating by style to about 1780, give or take a few years. This piece is unmarked but does have period engraved block initials for the original owner. It is decorated with feather edging on the stem, and has a New England-style shell decoration to the back of the bowl. This piece feels like a smaller town piece, in that the engraving is less than expert a...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon from the late 18th Century, bearing period engraved block initials but without a maker's mark. Although this piece could be from anywhere in theory, it has certain proportions that might support a guess of a New Hampshire origin. Hard to explain - more of a "feel" thing. This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. There are som...

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver teaspoons by Poplar Ridge, New York silversmith T. P. Cranson, about whom little seems to be known. By the style of a few pieces observed, he seems to have worked in the 1820s through perhaps the 1840s. These teaspoons have legible maker's marks, and have a the great addition of a town mark for Poplar Ridge. Please review all the photos. There are no monograms, but there probably was an erasure at one point, as the spatulate end of the front o...
