Offered is an excellent early Marietta coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Elisha Pratt (b. 1798 - d. 1855), who was trained by his father, silversmith Azariah Pratt in Marietta, his apprenticeship beginning around 1815 or a bit earlier. By the 1820s, Elisha would have been working on his own in Marietta, though the first formal note of his profession as a silversmith seems to date to 1828. By the 1850 census, Elisha Pratt was described as a gunsmith...

Offered is a circa 1824-40 American coin silver teaspoon by Syracuse silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Hiram Judson, working circa 1824 to his death in 1853. By style, this piece would be on the early end of his career. The maker's mark of H.JUDSON is well struck, and there is another, very interesting mark in a shield form, perhaps heraldic. This mark doesn't appear to be associated with any other Judson pieces observed online, and may have been the mark of a transiting journeyman...

Offered is a nice set of four American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith John Morin, working circa 1808-32. These are probably from 1815-20 by style, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. These spoons measure about 5 3/4 inches in length, and the set of four weighs about 66 grams altogether...

Offered is a really nice example of noted Philadelphia silversmith James Watson's early maker's mark - J.WATSON in script in a conformed punch. The mark on one of these spoons was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. These two Philadelphia coin silver teaspoons are very well made and each has a period engraved script monogram in addition to the maker's mark and a small star mark that is probably for a journeyman...

Offered is a very fine and early Lily of the Valley pattern (also known as LILJEKONVAL pattern) Scandinavian / Danish silver dessert spoon by noted silversmith Georg Jensen, circa 1915 to judge by the period engraving. Jensen himself designed this pattern circa 1913, so this is an early production piece. The marks appear to be slightly different than those typically seen, but I think it is unlikely they are spurious given the period engraving, which is to finely executed to be incorrect...

Offered is a very nice Italian silver grappa or tot cup from the 19th Century, hallmarked for Naples. This cup has a hallmark for Naples but no maker's mark. This piece measures a little over 1 1/2 inches high and weighs about 16 grams. This piece is in good condition overall, with minor signs of wear and use, but no major dents and no splits or repairs.

Offered is a nice little American coin silver salt spoon marked J.B.SHEPARD in a rectangular punch, circa 1825-50. The location of this silversmith is unknown to me - if anyone can educate me, it would be most welcome! This piece is not engraved, and it is difficult to tell if it once had a monogram. The maker's mark is a little rubbed but is legible. This piece measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 5 grams...

Offered is a nice American coin silver sauce ladle with fluted bowl and a great strike of the maker's mark. This piece also has period engraving to the handle. I didn't track down this tradesman, but would be interested in hearing about his whereabouts. This ladle measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. Condition is very good, with modest wear but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a nice useful serving piece and a nice example of this mark!

Mr. Boardman's biography appears below. This fork is listed singly because it has an excellent maker's mark. This piece also has a worn monogram.

Offered is a lovely and well-made American coin silver serving ladle in a great transitional size midway between soup ladles and sauce or gravy ladles - at 10 1/4 inches in length it is the perfect size for display or use at today's table. This piece bears the maker's mark or retailer's mark of W. Brown & Co., presumably for William Brown & Co. of Baltimore (working 1856-66), though there were a number of William Browns working in Philadelphia and by style this piece could be from either locale...

Offered is an important and interesting pair of Kentucky coin silver spoons by noted Frankfort silversmith, watchmaker and fishing reel maker Benjamin F. Meek, working circa 1830s - 1870s in the silversmithing line on and off. Although Meek's work is always sought-after, this pair of spoons has something more special about them. They are engraved "Parsonage" over "MEC" - presumably for the parsonage (home of the pastor) of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Frankfort, or another nearby. Church...
