Offered is a nice pair of English silver sugar tongs dating to 1800 and bearing a maker's mark of IE, perhaps for John Edington or perhaps someone else. In any event, not one of the large, prolific firms like Chawner & Co. or the Bateman family, but rather a lesser-known, probably specialist maker. These tongs are in a plain Old English Pattern form, with a simple, Scottish-style (lacking feathering) engraved script monogram...

Offered is an American coin silver tablespoon in the fiddlethread pattern, made or more likely retailed by watchmaker and jeweler Andrew Poetz (b. 1827 - d. 1899), who according to his obituary arrived in Mobile, Alabama in 1850 and began working under his own name four years later. He seems to have had success from the time he opened his shop and throughout his life in Mobile - his tomb is quite distinguished...

Offered is an American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark of Chauncey Johnson, who worked there from about 1820 into the 1840s, before relocating to Bastrop, Texas. This spoon can be dated to the 1820-27 period as it bears two strikes of a manufacturer's mark of an eagle head looking left, attributed by John R. McGrew to Green Hall of Albany, working circa 1810-27. This same mark appears frequently on work marked by Nehemiah B...

Offered is an extremely rare example of the mark of Peter Joubert of Philadelphia, working there between 1806-30. Despite a fairly long career, his mark is hardly ever seen, and this is the only example I've encountered. The mark on these particular spoons was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. These spoons measure about 6 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 33 grams altogether...

Offered is a very good and quite rare example of the maker's mark of Edward Mackinley of Philadelphia. The mark on this particular spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Cathy Hollan. The mark is well-struck, and is fully legible though slightly rubbed. This piece measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no notable dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example of an extremely rare mark!

Offered is a nice Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of J.LEWIS, for John Lewis, working circa 1830-61. Despite Lewis' long career, this is the only example observed of his mark. The mark on this particular spoon was used for Hollan's work on Philadelphia silversmiths. It measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. It has a clear, well-struck mark and a period engraved script monogram...

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmiths and jewelers Francis and Frederick Thibault, working in partnership circa 1807-09. This is a quite early example of the fully developed fiddle form that would take precedence in Philadelphia in the 1810-25 period; the feature that gives away its age is the slight squaring of the shoulders. This spoon has a legible maker's mark or retailer's mark and a worn but legible period engraved script monogram...

This piece has a good period engraved script monogram and a clear maker's mark. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. Condition is fair at best, with some dents to the bowl and a slight twist to the handle, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of a short-lived style in Philadelphia coin silver!

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...

Offered is a very good and scarce 18th Century Scottish silver decanter label or bottle ticket, engraved for Madeira, by William and Patrick Cunningham of Edinburgh, circa 1790. As with some of these small pieces, this bottle ticket bears only the Cunningham's earlier maker's mark of WPC in a rectangular punch. This piece measures about 1 3/4 inches across and weighs about 9 grams. It is in good antique condition, with no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely and useful item, and nice to fi...

Offered is a lovely sterling silver and baleen toddy ladle, measuring a full fifteen inches in length and weighing a good fifty grams. This piece is quite long for the period in which it was made, probably between 1780 and 1850. There are no hallmarks or maker's marks evident on the piece, but there is a period script monogram of HM. The monogram is in simple script and not feathered - typical of Scottish pieces. Given that it is not hallmarked, it could be either Scottish provincial, or jus...

Offered is a very good, and possibly unique, early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Richard Parker, working briefly circa 1785 and then disappearing from the records. According to Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (the mark on this particular spoon was used for that book), birdbacks by Parker are known, so he may have had some success in the field for a brief time. However, this is the only example of Parker's work that I've ever seen. This piece measures about 5 5...
