Offered is a lovely fiddlethread pattern Irish Georgian (well, almost!) condiment (perhaps mustard) spoon fully hallmarked for Dublin, 1831, and bearing the maker's mark of noted silversmith James Le Bas (died 1845). At the time this spoon was assayed, Le Bas was listed as being at 17 Bishop Street. This piece is engraved with a nice armorial of a tethered or chained cat, and has a good set of marks. It measures about 4 1/8 inches in length, and weighs about 14 grams...

Offered is a striking and superb American coin silver table spoon by little-known New Lisbon, Ohio silversmith and clockmaker Charles D. Hostetter, son of the famous clockmaker Jacob Hostetter, whose biographical information appears below. Charles D. Hostetter was working in New Lisbon by about the late 1820s, if not earlier, and worked alone from at least 1831, the time of his father's death, through 1840 or so...

Offered is a scarce example of the work of Nashville, Tennessee silversmith John M. Smith, circa 1835. Smith had at least two maker's marks, and probably worked for a number of years, but seems to have advertised in only one instance. This piece bears what is probably the later of his two marks, and the punch was worn and chipped by the point this spoon was struck with the mark, so perhaps toward the end of his working career, around 1835...

Offered is a very rare and exciting find, a quite early Indiana coin silver spoon by Vincennes silversmith Isaac Newton Whittelsey (b. 1798 - d. 1870), working in Vincennes by 1820. By style, this teaspoon should date to the 1820s or early 1830s. The maker's mark on this spoon is lightly rubbed but completely legible, and is a scarce mark indeed. This piece is also graced with a period engraved script monogram of "C". This spoon measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams...

Offered is a nice example of the maker's mark or retailer's mark used by George W. Stewart of Lexington, KY, working there circa 1843-52. This piece is not in great condition, with a worn and dented bowl that also has a small split, but the mark is clear and well struck, and includes a city and state reference. This spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. All in all a nice old Southern coin silver spoon!

Offered is a very scarce and early example of Kentucky coin silver by prominent Lexington silversmith Samuel Ayres, whose biographical information appears below. This piece is marked with a maker's mark of "S.AYRES LEX K" in a banner. By style this piece would appear to date to between 1800 and 1810. There is no monogram or sign of erasure, and the maker's mark is rubbed but legible. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon in a style consistent with 18th Century Pennsylvanian German silversmiths, and marked LH - probably for Lewis (Ludwig) Heck, working in Lancaster circa 1780-1817. This piece probably dates to about 1790-1800. It has an engraved monogram that could be period but appears a bit later in terms of the depth of the engraving. This piece measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is a lovely set of four American coin silver teaspoons or coffee spoons (they measure only 5 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 33 grams altogether) by Philadelphia silversmith William Baily, Jr., circa 1830-50. Each spoon has a period engraved script monogram of "CP" and a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark. Condition is good overall, with a few minor dings and bends, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice set for everyday use!

Offered is a lovely example of the work of Pennsylvania silversmith John D. Haverstick, a member of the celebrated Haverstick family of silversmiths. John D. Haverstick was working in Lancaster circa 1805-09; in Carlisle circa 1809-25; and in Erie after 1825. This probably dates to the Carlisle period, but could be a late Lancaster piece...

Offered is a very fine pair of early American coin silver table spoons bearing the mark of Harrisburg craftsman George Beatty. Beatty seems to have focused mainly on clocks, and his silver generally bears the "Philadelphia Eagle" manufacturer's mark, thought to have been in use between 1825 and 1850. Biographical information on Mr. Beatty follows the description of this piece...

Offered is a nice example of the work of the celebrated Baltimore silversmith William Ball (working circa 1789-1815), whose work is surprisingly scarce. This is the first piece of his that I've come across. This piece is marked with Ball's maker's mark twice, and the clearer of the two marks is pictured here (see all pictures by clicking on the first one). This spoon is also graced with a period engraved script monogram and a nicely decorated handle. This piece measures about 8 7/8 inches in...

Offered is a nice pair of New York coin silver teaspoons circa 1825-40 by J.BELL with pseudo-hallmarks; this mark has sometimes been given to John Bell of New York City, but he seems to have worked too early for the style of these spoons unless they were in the last year or two of his career. There were also at least two J. Bells working in Ogdensburg, NY between 1810 and 1850 or 60, and this could be the mark of one of those men. In any event, these are two nicely marked spoons with a good pe...

Offered is a gorgeous American coin silver cream pitcher by noted silversmith Harvey Lewis (1783-1835), working in Philadelphia circa 1805-11 in partnership as Lewis & Smith, and working alone in Philadelphia circa 1812-25, before his health declined and he gave up silversmithing. Despite a shorter working career, Harvey Lewis established himself as one of the leading silversmiths of his day in Philadelphia, and his work is nearly always superb. His pieces are represented in every major Americ...

This piece is marked G.M.ZAHM in a rectangular punch, and is engraved "CR" in period script for the original owner. Interestingly, the engraver slipped a bit and there is a line from the end of the R down the handle. This piece measures about 3 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 6 grams. Condition overal...
