Offered is a Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon bearing the die-struck wreath decoration pioneered and probably controlled by the Fries family of silversmiths, but occasionally seen on spoons bearing the marks of other Philadelphia firms. This one is marked by Lewis Ladomus and probably dates to the 1850s. This piece measures just under 6 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is poor in that the bowl has a split (see pictures) and is out of round...

Offered is a good transitional finless fiddle coin silver teaspoon by Litchfield, Connecticut and Brattleboro, Vermont silversmith Isaac Thompson (1777 - 1844). Thompson was working alone in Litchfield from about 1805 to 1811 and in Brattleboro between about 1811 and 1817. This spoon was probably made in Connecticut but could have been made in either locale. This piece measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams...

Offered is a nice coin silver tea spoon retailed by noted silversmith Samuel Richards of Philadelphia, and given the floret mark used by John Curry, probably manufactured by him. This piece has good clear marks and a period engraved "MMG" script monogram. It measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition is fair, with some tip wear and a dent to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of these marks!

Offered is a lovely pair of transitional shoulder-less Southern coin silver tea spoons by noted Virginia and Kentucky silversmith Asa Blanchard, circa 1807-15 by style and given their Kentucky origin. The maker's mark on these spoons (mark "d" in Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths", corresponding to mark "29C" in Boultinghouse's "Silversmiths of Kentucky") has only been found on pieces with Kentucky provenances...

Offered is a very rare example of the work and maker's mark of Jean-Felix LeFevre (1780 - 1813), silversmith of Philadelphia. This piece is in fair condition at best, with a lot of surface wear and a dinged and dented bowl, but has a decent legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. LeFevre's work is usually quite good, though this spoon is a bit lighter than most of his spoons. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams...

Offered is a rare set of four Southern coin silver spoons by Shelbyville silversmith Warren B. Ewing, working from about 1845 to his death in 1876. Each of these spoons is marked WBE incuse, which is a much scarcer mark used by Ewing than is his full name mark. Each spoon has the typical style and proportions of Ewing's work, and each has a legible maker's mark. There is no sign of a monogram or erasure. By style, these spoons probably date to before the Civil War...

Offered is an excellent 18th Century English silver pair of cast sugar tongs bearing the maker's mark B*M for Benjamin Mordecai/Benjamin Montigue, working in London circa 1770 and later. This pair of tongs should date to about 1775 based on style. This piece is in excellent condition with no evidence of splits or repairs and with a good surface and marks. It measures about 5 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 32 grams...

Offered is a good American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Samuel Hutchinson, working in that city circa 1828-39. This teaspoon bears a clear, well-struck maker's mark for Hutchinson, and in this case he was probably the retailer rather than the maker as the spoon also has a floret mark used by John Curry and was probably made by Curry. Like many pieces made by Curry, this has good weight and balance. It measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams...

Offered is an excellent American coin silver dessert spoon in the fiddlethread or fiddle and thread pattern, bearing the maker's mark of Lows, Ball & Co., circa 1840. This piece measures about 6 7/8 inches in length and weighs a heavy 46 grams or so. It is engraved with a period script monogram to the reverse. Condition is excellent, with modest wear from normal use but no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a good piece in a desirable pattern and a useful and scarce size!

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward Lownes (1792-1834), who was prolific and accomplished in his short life. This fiddle pattern teaspoon is large for its type at about 6 1/4 inches in length and about 24 grams in weight. It bears a well-executed period engraved script monogram and a very clear maker's mark. It also has a floret pseudo-hallmark used by John Curry, who could have been the manufacturer of this piece...

Offered is a very scarce example of the work of Delaware silversmith and clockmaker William F. Robinson (b. 1810 - d. 1849), who worked briefly in Philadelphia in the 1830s, and then spent the last decade of his life working in Wilmington. Silver bearing his mark is uncommon. This teaspoon bears a rubbed but legible maker's mark of W.F.ROBINSON in a rectangular punch, and has an engraved period script monogram. It measures about 6 3/16 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams...

Offered is a rare 270-year old Norwegian master salt spoon by Frederikshald (now known as Halden) silversmith Lorentz Hoffman (alternate spelling, Hofmand), who was born circa 1692 and died in 1767. This piece is marked LH over 1746 for the maker's mark and year of manufacture, and FH for Frederikshald. These marks appear in "Norske Solvstempler" by Jorunn Fossberg, page 29. The third mark may be an assay master's mark, but I can't be certain. It is quite uncommon to see domestic Norwegian s...

Offered is a very fine pair of unusually well-decorated English Victorian sterling silver fiddle pattern sugar tongs, with extensive relief engraving to the bow and both arms, down to the grips. This piece also features a nicely done period script monogram of "AT & MT". The tongs are fully hallmarked for London, 1872, and bear a maker's mark of what appears to be TH over TH. Please click on the picture to see the rest of the pictures, including details of the decoration and the maker's mark a...

Offered is a good pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Virginia silversmith Jehu Williams, Sr., working first in Fredericksburg and then for the majority of his career in Lynchburg. For most of his time in Lynchburg, Williams was in partnership with John Victor - the partnership began around 1814 and lasted until Victor's death in 1845. Williams then worked alone from 1845 to 1856 and with his son from 1856 to Jehu Sr.'s death in 1859. The mark on these spoons is attributed by Hollan to ...

Offered is one of the most eye-catching and unusual English sterling silver fish slices I've ever seen, let alone come across. Please carefully review all the pictures. This piece is fully hallmarked for London, 1843, and appears to bear a maker's mark used by specialist maker John James Whiting. This fish server has interesting die-struck rococo decoration to the handle, and gorgeous pierced work to the blade, which spells FISH in fancy script. The piercing is so ornate that it takes a mome...

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the rare maker's mark of silversmith and clockmaker William Drysdale (working in Philadelphia circa 1816-56), who despite his long working life left little of his work to posterity. The mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan, and I've not seen another example. This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. It features a clear maker's mark, a floret mark assoc...

Offered is a very good pair of American coin silver table spoons by Philadelphia merchant and jeweler Theodore LeHuray, circa 1846-51. These tablespoons are rare survivors in that Theodore only went into the jewelry and silversmithing business for a few years, after his father (Nicholas LeHuray, Jr.) died in 1846. His attempt to carry on the family firm under his own name appears to have been unsuccessful, and he soon turned to other pursuits. The maker's mark of T LE HURAY in conjoined boxes is...
