Offered is a lovely American coin silver sugar sifter in an unknown but attractive pattern, bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Harbottle & Smith, retailers of Auburn, NY circa 1850-67. The partners were George Harbottle and Charles Augustus Smith. This piece measures about 7 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 54 grams...

Offered is a good pair of American coin silver sugar tongs decorated with die-struck basket of flowers motifs to each arm, and bearing the maker's mark of jeweler and silversmith Charles Bond of Boston, working circa 1825. This piece has a period engraved script monogram of "MJB" and is in good condition, with moderate surface wear and a few signs of use, but no dents, splits or repairs. It measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 38 grams...

Offered is a lovely and scarce large American coin silver gravy or sauce ladle by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 8 1/4 inches in length and weighing about 60 grams. This piece by style should date to about 1810 but could be a few years earlier or later. It is certainly more than two centuries old. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "HT"...

Offered is a good heavy mid-Eighteenth Century English sterling silver Hanoverian Pattern tablespoon, engraved with a worn armorial of a hound of some sort, and bearing hallmarks indicating London manufacture. I didn't check the maker's mark, but it should be relatively easy to track down. This piece measures about 8 1/16 inches in length and weighs a good 68 grams or so. Condition is good overall, with some surface wear but good color and no dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a nice English Georgian sterling silver Hanoverian pattern tablespoon bearing a well-executed period armorial of a hawk or falcon. This piece measures about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. Condition is fair at best, as the bowl has been reshaped and the stem may have a well done repair, given that the maker's mark is missing. However, this would make a decent fill-in piece for a set or a server for casual use...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved English sterling silver master butter knife or cheese knife, hallmarked for London, 1834-35 and with a maker's mark of JW in script, probably for John James Whiting. This piece measures about 7 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. It is expertly engraved with period script initials, probably "FHO". Condition is excellent with minimal surface wear, good color, and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a lovely piece and a great holiday item!

Offered is a nice early crested Georgian English sterling silver sauce or gravy ladle by noted London silversmith Richard Crossley, fully hallmarked for 1782. The armorial is of what appears to be a lion's paw emerging from a coronet and grasping an escallop (scallop shell); I've not researched the armorial to determine the family, but it is probably traceable. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 52 grams...

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. This spoon has a very unusual midrib that branches out into almost a diam...

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. All in all a fine example of this...

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. All in all a nice usable pi...

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. This spoon measures about 4 3/8 inches in length and...

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. These spoons each measure about 12 1/4 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about...

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...
