Offered is a nice little American coin silver teaspoon by well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback, circa 1825. This piece bears a maker's mark for William as well as a city mark for Reading. This spoon is also graced with a period engraved script monogram of "AB". It measures about 5 9/16 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is only fair, as the piece is over-polished (though not machine buffed), and there are some small, shallow dings and dents to the bowl...

Offered is a lovely pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Kentucky silversmith E.C. Beard, working in Louisville alone and in partnership circa 1820-60. These spoons by style could date anywhere from 1830 to the 1850s, but are most likely from the 1830s or 1840s. Each is marked BEARD in a distinctive serrated punch with a funny curve to the left side. Each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram of "SW". Please take a look at all pictures...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Henry Erwin, circa 1816-34. Although spoons by Erwin are not uncommon and I have handled many, the pseudo-hallmark on these spoons to the right of the maker's mark are unique in my experience. What exactly they represent visually is a mystery - it looks to me like a hunting dog looking back over its shoulder when oriented so that the bottom is toward the name mark...

Offered is a very good Georgian English sterling silver teaspoon or coffee spoon with a decorated handle and die-stuck decoration of a vase or urn of flowers to the back of the bowl. Please click through all of the pictures. This piece has no monogram and no obvious sign of erasure. The bowl was gilded on both sides and traces of this gilding remain. The maker's mark is a bit rubbed but appears to be GS for George Smith. There is a also a lion passant hallmark...

Offered is a an interesting American coin silver teaspoon by the little-known maker R. Carroll, about whom little seems to have been documented. This is interesting in that his working place is demonstrated by the marks on this piece. In addition to the maker's mark of R.CARROLL, there is a mark of YOUNGSTOWN.O for Youngstown, Ohio. This piece measures about 5 15/16 inches in length, and weighs about 19 grams...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Wilmington silversmith James Guthre (1796-1877), who was working by about 1820 and continued to work for a fairly long period of time. Guthre was fairly prolific and this piece is a good example of his work. It bears a clear strike of his maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams...

Offered is a very good and heavy American coin silver teaspoon with die-struck sheaf-of-wheat decoration to the handle, surmounting a period engraved script monogram. This piece is struck with the maker's mark of G.MECUM in a serrated punch, for George Mecum, working in Boston circa 1825-46. This piece probably dates to the 1820s. It measures about 6 1/16 inches in length and weighs a very heavy 23 grams or so. Condition is very good overall, with a tiny and very shallow ding in the bowl and...

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver fiddlethread or French Thread pattern teaspoon bearing the mark of the well-known firm of A.B. Griswold & Co., and also marked N.O. for New Orleans. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 23 grams. Condition is fairly good, with no major dents and only moderate tip and surface wear; however there is a slight wave in the slim part of the stem, as can be seen in the photos. Some patience and careful bending and probably amend thi...

Offered is a lovely Baltimore coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith and watch and clock maker, John Lynch (1761-1848), probably circa the 1830s, but perhaps a little earlier or later. This piece has an engraved period script monogram and also features, in addition to a maker's mark for Mr. Lynch, several pseudo-hallmarks, including a union shield, an eagle, and the letter "S". These hallmarks probably post-date the Assay period in Baltimore history, and I've only observed them on a handful...

Offered is an excellent pair of very large early American coin silver tablespoons by the well-known partnership of Albany silversmiths Robert Shepherd and William Boyd, working circa 1806-30. This partnership's work seems to have been at its most prolific before 1820, and its work is typically quite fine indeed. These tablespoons each bear the firm's maker's mark, and each is engraved with a large, well-executed period script monogram of "AH". The maker's mark is legible on each tablespoon....

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver tablespoons by noted New York maker Albert Coles, in a pattern that may have been proprietary to his firm. I've seen teaspoons in this pattern over the years, and occasionally another form, but these are the first tablespoons. Each bears a maker's mark of A.COLES for Albert Coles (which indicates he both made and probably retailed these, as otherwise he would have had his manufacturing marks on these), and each also has an engraved period script...

Offered is a very nice large American coin silver teaspoon by jeweler James A. Webb, who established his store in Janesville, Wisconsin circa 1856, and was in business at least through the 1860s.

It is engraved with a period script monogram, and is clearly marked with a maker's mark or retailer's mark of J.A.WEBB.
