Offered is a good pair of early Victorian English sterling silver master salt spoons by noted female silversmith Elizabeth Eaton, widow of William Eaton. These are in the King's Pattern, with diamond heel, and have commensurate size and weight. They measure about 4 1/4 inches in length and weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a period engraved script monogram, and each is marked with Elizabeth Eaton's maker's mark (registered around 1843) and full hallmarks for London...

Offered is a lovely and scarce American coin silver serving piece bearing the maker's mark of George C. Shreve, working in San Francisco from about 1852 on. This piece appears to be a buckwheat or tomato server, but I am happy to be corrected if this piece had a different purpose. This server measures about 8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. It is decorated with a period Gothic initial "C" and clearly marked. The engraving on this piece is excellent and highly decorative...

Offered is an exquisite late 18th Century American coin silver soup ladle decorated in a circa 1790-1800 style, probably made in the mid-Atlantic, perhaps inland Pennsylvania given the slight midrib to the reverse and the narrow, elongated engraved reserve for the period monogram, which appears to be "YDC". This soup ladle is unsigned but nonetheless stands out for its style and workmanship. This piece is heavy and well-made, measuring about 14 inches and weighing about 162 grams...

Offered is a fine late 17th Century or very early 18th Century trefid table spoon bearing the maker's mark "IS" struck four times as the only mark.

This mark appears in Figure 8 of the article "In Search of John Smith" (a well-known Taunton and Barnstaple silversmith) by Tim Kent, F.S.A., which appeared in the January/February 2005 edition of The Finial (Volume 15/03). The spoon in that article was an acanthus-back trefid, also struck four times with this exact mark...

Offered is an interesting and unusual early 18th Century Brittania standard English silver tablespoon hallmarked for London, and what appears to be the year 1715 or so. The maker's mark is poorly struck but looks like it may be "Sc", which would make it likely the maker is William Scarlett, specialist spoonmaker of London working in this period. Scarlett was prolific and experimented with form, so that would make sense...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver spoon in the coffin-end pattern marked WILLARD, probably for a silversmith named A. Willard who may have worked in Utica. The spoon has a "Utica look" - however, I could be wrong. In any event, it is a lovely little piece. This spoon measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. There is no monogram or obvious sign of erasure...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon made by Ebenezer Moulton of Newburyport and Boston, MA, circa 1795-1805. The Moulton family of silversmiths is famous and well-documented. This teaspoon has a period engraved script monogram and a well-struck maker's mark. It measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is only fair as there is a scratch above the monogram and surface wear overall. There are no splits or repairs...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver coffee spoon or teaspoon by noted New York silversmith Silas White (b. 1754 - d. 1798), circa 1775-85 by style, and probably on the earlier end of that range. This piece has one of White's maker's marks documented at Winterthur and elsewhere, and shares the distinctive drop with other spoons bearing his mark. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved block initial monogram...

Offered is a lovely and scarce matched pair of quite early Old English Feather Edge pattern platter spoons or stuffing spoons, each fully hallmarked for London, 1774 and each bearing the maker's mark of noted London silversmith Thomas Chawner. Each server is engraved with an armorial of a dog, perhaps a spaniel of some kind. This is the earliest matched pair of stuffing spoons that I have come across...

Offered is a lovely and quite rare example of the silverwork of Bernard Hendel, better known as a clockmaker and the least known of the Hendel brothers. Bernard worked from about 1811 to 1844, and a number of clocks bearing his name alone or in conjunction with his brother Jacob are known. However, there is almost no silver bearing his name. This is only the second spoon I've come across by Bernard Hendel, and it is a good one. By style it should date to about 1825, but could be a little ear...

Offered is a lovely pair of antique Scottish provincial silver sugar tongs, circa the first or early second quarter of the 19th Century. This piece is struck twice on one arm with a maker's mark of "E", often assigned to James Erskine of Aberdeen; the other arm bears a hallmark that looks like a circle or ring. This piece also has a period engraved monogram done in a typically Scottish style. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 42 grams. All in all a lovely exam...

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs marked Gordon in italicized lettering on each arm; this mark resembles one of the maker's marks attributed by the Darling Foundation to George Gordon of Newburgh, NY, working circa 1800-24. The only difference is that the mark in the Darling book also has a first name initial - G.GORDON in italicized lettering. It may be that the die for this mark was damaged and re-cut to eliminate all but the last name. It is also just possi...

Offered is a very fine pair of West Virginia coin silver dessert spoons by scarce Wheeling maker Artemas O. Fairchild, who commenced his business around 1839 and after many years relocated to Missouri. These spoons by style should date to the first years of his West Virginia period. Each spoon is engraved with a complicated period script monogram and each has a good legible maker's mark. These spoons each measure about 7 inches in length and the pair weighs about 58 grams. Condition is good ...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears...

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably T...

Offered is a nice circa 1815 American coin silver teaspoon bearing one of the maker's marks used by Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Whartenby, as well as an engraved period script monogram. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is good overall with some surface wear and signs of normal use, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of this man's output!

Offered is a scarce pair of late Kentucky coin silver spoons bearing the mark of jeweler Frank Maier of Bowling Green, KY. Maier, a German immigrant, came first to Louisville and lived there until about the age of 25, whereupon he moved to Bowling Green and established his own jewelry store around 1881. These two teaspoons each measure about 5 3/4 inches in length, and the pair weighs a total of about 32 grams. Each spoon bears a nicely executed period engraved script monogram of "BVY" or "BU...

Offered is a lovely and rare early American coin silver table spoon circa 1843 - 1860s by silversmith and jeweler George W. Cook, working in Boonville throughout that period. This piece is engraved with a period script monogram and has a fantastic maker's mark that incorporates a city mark - it reads COOK.BOONVILLE and is clear and legible. This tablespoon measures about 9 inches in length and weighs about 54 grams. Condition is good overall, with some tip and surface wear and a few small din...
