Offered is a nice Canadian coin silver master salt spoon by William Norris Venning (b. 1795 in England, d. 1877 in New Brunswick), circa 1840. Venning worked circa 1819-71, so this salt spoon could a few years earlier or later than 1840. This piece measures about 4 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. It has an engraved period script monogram and a legible maker's mark. Condition is good overall, with some modest signs of use but no major dents and no splits or repairs...

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 a nice Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon by watchmaker and jeweler Hugh Mulligan. The mark on this particular spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Cathy Hollan. This piece has a clear mark and an engraved period script monogram. It measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is fair, with some small bumps to the bowl and a moderate to the handle. All in all a good example of this particular mark!

Offered is a very nice fiddle pattern American coin silver table spoon by the well-known Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson, working circa 1825-50. This piece measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 62 grams, or around two troy ounces. It has a clear maker's mark and a well-executed period 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...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Shoemaker, circa 1805-15. 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!

Offered is a lovely American coin silver cream pitcher or creamer, circa 1825-40, and by style almost certainly made in Philadelphia. Philadelphia creamers and tea service pieces generally are among the most attractive and well-designed in the first half of the 19th Century...

Offered is a interesting American coin silver table spoon by Constant Southworth (a rare mark by a little-known maker), and partly over-struck by Guy Loomis. 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...

Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by prolific maker Osborn Conrad, working in Philadelphia circa 1841-51. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. It has a clear maker's mark and a large, somewhat simplified but period monogram, done by a novice engraver. Condition is good overall, with some bumps to the bowl but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable spoon!

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith William Seal, born and perhaps trained in Virginia but known to be working alone and in partnership in Philadelphia between 1810 and 1822. He lived until 1853 but the style of his silver does not post-date about 1820. This piece is in good condition overall, with moderate wear and no dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a very good set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Amable Brasier (b. 1764 - d. 1842), working in that city between about 1795 and 1826. These three teaspoons are in a fin-less fiddle pattern and probably date to between 1800 and 1810. Each piece is expertly engraved 'EW' in period script. Each spoon also bears Brasier's maker's mark - one mark is rubbed but legible, and the other two are clear and well-struck. These spoons each measure...

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver teaspoons marked R.Wilson in script, for Robert Wilson, silversmith of New York and then Philadelphia, prior to his death in 1824. Mr. Wilson's sons, Robert and William, went on to great success after Robert Sr.'s death, establishing one of the most prolific silver manufacturing operations in the first half of the 19th Century. Robert Wilson Sr.'s work is typically marked with a maker's mark of RW in an oval, and is usually recognizably New ...

Offered is an excellent pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith John Owen, working circa 1802-31. These teaspoons are each initialed "SA" in period script, and each has a clear, well-struck maker's mark of J.OWEN in a serrated rectangular punch. These spoons measure about 5 inches in length and the pair weighs about 21 grams altogether. Condition is excellent, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of this man's output!

Offered is a nice pair of late 18th Century American coin silver sugar tongs marked only with a maker's mark of S.B - a mark given in Belden's "American Silversmiths" to Col. Standish Barry of Baltimore, MD. See Belden, page 49, mark d. for Barry. The strength of the attribution to Barry in Belden is based on stylistic similarities to known Belden work, and the relatively small number of potential craftsmen with the right initials working in the right time period. In any event, these sugar to...

Offered is a nice pair of 18th Century silver sugar tongs dating by style to the 1760s or early 1770s, bearing only a maker's mark of T.H in a rectangle. This maker's mark is fairly crude and doesn't look like a British mark, but the proportions of this pair of tongs look more British than American to me. So, are these tongs British, and dodge paying duty? Were they perhaps made provincially within the UK proper, far away from an assay office? Could they be from somewhere else in the Empire,...
