This piece is not for sale, but help me solve the mystery of who made this piece, and I will send you a very nice coin silver spoon in thanks! These twist-arm American coin silver sugar tongs measure about 7 1/8 inches in length and weigh about 49 grams. The maker's mark is a fairly crude SR in a serrated punch. Please take a look at all the pictures...

Offered is a very rare example of the work of Guilford, Connecticut silversmith Samuel Parmelee (Parmele), working circa 1757 to perhaps his death in 1807. His work seems to be very rare from about 1775 and later, though this spoon has his documented mark and appears to date to about 1800. Samuel Parmelee served in the Revolutionary War, ultimately achieving the rank of Captain. This spoon measures about 5 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 11 grams...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 1/2 inches in length and weighing about 9 grams, and dating by style to about 1780, give or take a few years. This piece is unmarked but does have period engraved block initials for the original owner. It is decorated with feather edging on the stem, and has a New England-style shell decoration to the back of the bowl...

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 rare and lovely early American coin silver long-handled condiment spoon, perhaps for dry mustard, by noted Philadelphia silversmiths Jean-Simon Chaudron and Anthony Rasch, working together in partnership circa 1809-12. This piece bears a clear maker's mark for the partnership, as well as a period script monogram to the reverse of the handle...

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"...

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 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 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...

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...

Offered is an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon that by style appears to date to the 1750-70 timeframe; the maker's mark ends with an "E" that looks an awful lot like one of Samuel Edwards' marks, but I can't make out the first letter. The outline of the mark is right for Samuel Edwards as well, but the drop on the spoon is different from those I've seen used by Edwards. So, probably a different maker...

Offered is a very good group of early American coin silver teaspoons, all three by James Black (working circa 1796-1819), but with different workmen's marks, and with two different maker's marks for Black. The marks on these spoons were used in the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan - the definitive reference on the subject. These spoons range in date from about 1805 for the transitional fiddle spoon without shoulders, to about 1815-19 for the fiddle spoon with pointed shoulders, which...

Offered is a nice set of two early American coin silver teaspoons by Connecticut silversmith Nathaniel Shipman. These two spoons are each clearly marked and are also decorated with period engraved script monograms. These spoons each measure a little over 5 inches in length, and the pair weighs about 17 grams altogether. Condition of these spoons is fair to good overall, with some bumping to the bowls and stubborn tarnish spots, but no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely pair of early CT spoon...

NOT FOR SALE
For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite poss...

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". The ladle is marked to the reverse with one of McMulli...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons. This pair of tongs by style should date to about 1805-09 but could be a bit earlier. The maker's mark is one of Joseph Anthony's working alone, so this piece likely dates to no later than 1809. The maker's mark (see pics) is lightly struck, as is the case with most pieces by Mr. Anthony, and appears...

Offered is a nice little early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Delaware and Pennsylvania silversmith Isaac Woodcock, circa 1815. At this time, Isaac (son of noted silversmith Bancroft Woodcock) was working in Well's Valley, PA (between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg). This teaspoon bears one of Isaac Woodcock's full name maker's marks, and a period engraved script monogram that appears to be "NRG". This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is barely ...

Offered is a lovely example of a rare form in early American coin silver - a coffin-end pattern sauce or gravy ladle. This piece measures a little under 8 inches in length and weighs about 46 grams. It bears a lovely period script monogram of what appears to be "DSH". This piece has no maker's mark. Condition overall is very good, with no dents, splits or repairs; however there is a little spot on the underside of the handle where someone unfamiliar with antique silver did a scratch test (se...
