Offered is a quite rare English sterling silver meat skewer hallmarked for Exeter, 1823, by master silversmith Joseph Hicks. Exeter silver is uncommon enough, and this form is quite rare outside of the major production centers like London. This piece is fully marked with clear, well-struck hallmarks and a legible maker's mark. It is also engraved with a period script monogram of "RR". This skewer is by far the largest and heaviest I've come across, and feels like a sword blade...

Offered is a lovely circa 1807-21 Cork silver spoon by Irish provincial silversmiths Carden Terry & Jane Williams, working in partnership from about 1807, the date of Jane's widowhood, through Carden Terry's death in 1821. This piece probably dates to the early part of the partnership by style. It is in the Celtic Pointed pattern and bears a period engraved script monogram of "MK" as well as a well-struck maker's mark and standard mark of STERLING, typical of Cork pieces...

Offered is a very nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith and jeweler Nicholas Le Huray (or LeHuray) Jr., working circa 1821-46 in that city. Nicholas Junior's work is always desirable and usually very finely done. This spoon is no exception, with a lively period engraved script monogram, and nice proportions. Please scroll through all the pictures by clicking on the first picture. This spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams...

Offered is a very good pair of American coin silver teaspoons by a member of the Rhoads family of jewelers and watchmakers, working in Lancaster from at least the 1840s on. These spoons are marked RHOADS incuse and have an eagle mark as well. They also have a very nicely executed period engraved script monogram. The maker's mark on each spoon is nice and clear. The style of these spoons points to the 1840s or early 1850s, though they could be a bit earlier or later...

Not For Sale
NOT FOR SALE - Here's a challenge - a circa 1790-1810 American coin silver tablespoon marked only IS in a large serrated punch, with a nicely engraved period script monogram of GJM and a V-shaped drop. This piece measures about 9 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 59 grams. It came in a lot with a piece by Caleb Bentley of DC, VA and MD, and it has the look of rural VA, MD or PA. I haven't seen this particular mark before, and am hoping someone else has...

Offered is a very finely decorated American coin silver fish server by Albert Coles & Co. of New York City, circa 1835-50 and retailed by (probably) George Gelston of the same city. The GELSTON mark on this piece may not be firmly attributed, but may fit George S. Gelston the best given Coles' working dates. This piece is not engraved with a crest or monogram, and there is no obvious sign of an erasure. It is a larger piece, measuring about 12 1/2 inches in length and weighing about 148 grams...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver table spoon 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. This piece probably dates to the 1825-40 period. You can see all the pictures by clicking on the first picture. This piece has...

Offered is a very fine example of the early maker's mark of noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward P. Lescure, who was working between 1822 and about 1836, and then intermittently through about 1861. While Lescure's later mark is well-known and seen periodically, this early mark is all but unknown, and perhaps only a tiny fraction of Lescure's extant work bears this mark. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. It has a faded period engraved script monogram....

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon bearing early marks for Thomas J. Megear, silversmith of Wilmington (1831-32) and then Philadelphia (1832 to about 1860). This spoon is of the right style to have been made in the 1830s, and so could be from either location. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. It has a good clear maker's mark and a slightly faded period engraved script monogram. Condition overall is fair, with moderate wear overall, but n...

Offered is a new mark that may be the retailers' mark of a partnership between Malcom MacNeil (McNeil) of Philadelphia and his son John A. MacNeil (McNeil). I've never come across this mark before, but the spoon was manufactured by Watts of Philadelphia and is of the right time period for this father and son to have formed a partnership. The marks are nicely struck, and this spoon also has an excellently engraved period script monogram. This spoon measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and wei...
