Offered is a nicely decorated late 18th Century American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Philadelphia, PA and Lansingburgh, NY silversmith David Smith, working in Philadelphia circa 1778-87, and in Lansingburgh from about 1787-93. This piece is engraved with a period monogram within a nicely done reserve, in the New York style. As such, the spoon likely dates from Mr. Smith's Lansingburgh years. The maker's mark is rubbed but legible. This spoon measures about 5 7/16 inches in length an...

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 nice set of four early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Providence, Rhode Island silversmith and instrument maker William Hamlin, working in Providence from about 1792 through at least the 1820s as a silversmith, engraver and scientific instrument maker, and thereafter as a instrument maker. He is perhaps known best as engraver of landscape views and of bank notes. He served as a Lieutenant in the Rhode Island militia in 1778. This set of four teaspoons measure on average ...

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 ...

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...

Offered is an excellent early American coin silver master salt spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Whartenby, and bearing one of his many maker's marks. 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 lovely early American coin silver teaspoon by Connecticut silversmith Edmund Hughes, who was working in Hampton, CT between 1800 and 1804, and in Middletown, CT thereafter between 1805 and 1827, alone and in partnership. By the style of this piece, it certainly is possible if not probable that it was made in Hampton in the 1800-04 period. This piece has a lightly engraved period feathered script monogram of "AB" and a rubbed but still legible maker's mark. It measures about 5 1/4...

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 good pair of heavy American coin silver table spoons bearing manufacturing marks for Wood & Hughes and a retailer's mark for George W. Chatterton, Sr., who was apprenticed to the jewelry trade in Ithaca, NY and who immediately thereafter moved to Springfield, Illinois, where he found much success and was in business between about 1838 and 1873. Mr. Chatterton is best known due to a happenstance in history - he was the jeweler patronized by Abraham Lincoln when Mr. Lincoln needed we...

Offered is a Nazareth, Pennsylvania silver spoon in the sterling standard, circa 1870s, and marked by retail jeweler and watchmaker John F. Giering, who was born in Lehigh County in 1850 and who opened his store in Nazareth in about 1872. This piece has a rubbed period engraved script monogram, and a clear example of Giering's mark. The spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. It is in poor condition with wear and dents, but no splits or repairs. However, it is ...

Offered is a rare example of the maker's mark of John Brenise & Co., working in York between the 1820s or so and about 1840. Little is known about Brenise except perhaps in the immediate vicinity of York. This piece has a lovely period engraved script monogram and a well-struck, clear maker's mark. Condition is poor, with a badly done repair to the bowl. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. All in all a good example of one of this York silversmith's ma...

Offered is an early American coin silver spoon with a maker's mark of T. Campbell, possibly for watchmaker/jeweler Thomas Campbell of New York and then Philadelphia, or perhaps not. Hollan records this Campbell as working in NY from 1817 on, so perhaps not early enough. Thomas Boyle Campbell of Virginia used a different maker's mark and his silver is somewhat different in style, so I don't think there is a connection there. This piece has a clear maker's mark and a lightly engraved period scr...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by Bethlehem silversmith and member of the Moravian community John Matthew Miksch.

This piece also has an engraved period script monogram. It measures about six inches in length and weighs about 19 grams. Condition is fair, with some rippling in the handle and dings and dimples in the bowl a...

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...

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...
