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...

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...

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...

Offered is a nice unmarked coin silver teaspoon, probably from the greater Boston area or elsewhere in New England, engraved with a period script monogram. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some wear and some small dings to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable coin silver spoon reaching its two-hundredth birthday!

Offered is an interesting and odd American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 7/8 inches in length and weighing about 12 grams, marked CLARK in crude roman caps. I can't tell whether this is a legitimate mark, or a spurious mark meant to emulate one for Joseph Clark, Jr. - the placement of the letters are quite close to his known full name mark, and the die looks consistent with one that was worn and cut down. However, the piece has some question marks...

Offered is an interesting early silver spoon that I strongly suspect is coin silver; it was part of an assembled collection out of Massachusetts. This piece appears to be marked "BS" or perhaps "RS", but then it is subject to interpretation. There is the remnant of another mark, but it isn't a lion passant as the orientation of the lion would be all wrong. This piece appears to date to about 1760-80. It measures about 4 1/16 inches in length, and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon in the coffin end style by noted Providence, Rhode Island silversmith Walter Cornell, working between about 1780 and 1801. This piece has a clear maker's mark and a period set of engraved block initials; unusually, there are four initials rather than three. This piece is in good condition overall, with modest signs of use but with no major dents and no splits or repairs. It measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams...

Offered is an excellent and quite rare pair of very early Wisconsin coin silver table spoons by the La Crosse, Wisconsin firm of Rose & Bro., established in that town in 1856. The partners were George B. Rose and his brother Louis; each man was born and trained in Germany, and emigrated to the United States in the 1852-53 timeframe...

Offered is a good Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon by jeweler and watchmaker William D. Rapp. Mr. Rapp was working in Philadelphia between about 1828 and 1858, and perhaps also had a brief presence in Norristown. His maker's marks are known mostly on counterstamped coins and tokens, rather than on flatware. About 30 such coins have reportedly been found, and only one or two spoons...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon, circa 1795-1805, by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 6 inches in length and weighing about 19 grams. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "SM". This spoon is marked to the reverse with one of McMullin's earlier maker's marks...

Offered is a pair of early American coin silver teaspoons decorated in the New York fashion, and marked R&C in script in a conformed punch, most likely for Riker & Clapp, working in New York City between 1800 and 1802. This may be a mark that was not long in service, as it seems very uncommon. These spoons have rubbed but legible maker's marks, and a period engraved monogram to each handle. They measure about 5 1/2 inches in length, and weigh a total of about 25 grams. Condition is fair at b...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver gravy ladle or sauce ladle by Edward and David Kinsey of Cincinnati, working circa 1844-61. This piece has a twist handle and excellent decoration, as well as a period monogram to the front, and a period inscription to the back. The inscription is almost certainly of the same date as the monogram. The monogram is distinctive enough to permit a possibility of tracking down the original owner, but then, Cincinnati is a large town! This piece measures ab...

Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon by little-known silversmith Nathaniel Potter of the village of Huntington, Long Island, NY, circa 1825-35. However, I can't completely rule out that this is an alternate mark used by Niles Potter of Westerly, Rhode Island - both men are little-known, with few examples of their work extant. However, this mark is different than that attributed to Niles. Nathaniel Potter was working before 1800 and into the late 1820s at least; in the 1830s he b...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by Prisca Levan Mannerback (Mannerbach), son of the well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback. The younger Mannerbach/Mannerback, who went by Levan based on his maker's mark, started working under his own mark not much earlier than 1825, given that he was born in 1807, and that would make him 18 in 1825. For that reason, it is surprising how early this spoon is by style, with a slim fiddle handle and no shoulders. It could be one of ...

Offered is a good set of three American coin silver teaspoons bearing the mark of Johann Matthias Bonnet, Sr. (b. 1811, d. 1882), working in Zanesville from 1835 to his death. Bonnet was primarily a clockmaker and retailer, but also sold jewelry and silver flatware. These spoons probably date to the 1835-50 period, and are each marked with a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark for Bonnet. Each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. These spoons each measure about 5 1/2 inches in...

Offered is a rare and lovely early American coin silver spoon by Nazareth, Pennsylvania silversmith Josiah O. Beitel, who was born and died in Nazareth (b. 1811, d. 1898, and worked there all his life. Mr. Beitel apprenticed under Jedediah Weiss in 1825, and this spoon probably dates to shortly after that. It has a good clear maker's mark and a lovely period engraved script "ECD". This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair at best, some di...

Offered is a very rare American coin silver spoon by R. & W. Wilson of Philadelphia - rare because of the other mark on the spoon - "CROWNS". This denotes the highest standard of silver used in production by the Wilsons, as described in an 1826 newspaper advertisement they published (please review all of the pictures). In two decades of looking at hundreds or thousands of Wilson pieces, this is the first I've come across with this mark. This piece has a very clear maker's mark and fineness ma...
