Offered is a very rare set of three early American coin silver tea spoons by Easton, Maryland silversmith Robert Kersey, about whom little has been published. Birdback teaspoons by Mr. Kersey with the same maker's mark that appears on these spoons are known, and Kersey's traditional working date is given as circa 1793. It is evident from the style of these spoons that he worked a while longer, as the squared shoulders were in use mostly from 1805-10, give or take a couple of years...

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...

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...

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...

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 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...

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...

Offered is a good transitional finless fiddle coin silver teaspoon by Litchfield, Connecticut and Brattleboro, Vermont silversmith Isaac Thompson (1777 - 1844). Thompson was working alone in Litchfield from about 1805 to 1811 and in Brattleboro between about 1811 and 1817. This spoon was probably made in Connecticut but could have been made in either locale. This piece measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is very good with minimal wear and no splits or r...

Offered is a very rare example of the work and maker's mark of Jean-Felix LeFevre (1780 - 1813), silversmith of Philadelphia. This piece is in fair condition at best, with a lot of surface wear and a dinged and dented bowl, but has a decent legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. LeFevre's work is usually quite good, though this spoon is a bit lighter than most of his spoons. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. All in all a good exa...

Offered is a challenge - identify the silversmith who made this spoon, with a verifiable and supportable attribution, and I will send you a surprise coin silver teaspoon in good condition (worth about $15-20) as a prize! I haven't yet found this mark anywhere, and thought it an interesting experiment to leverage the talents of some of the silver enthusiasts and experts out there.

This piece measures about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 64 grams. It is marked "R.L" in an squarish punc...

Offered is a lovely set of four early American coin silver teaspoons by the well-respected Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes. By style, this set probably dates to the 1790-1800 period, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon has a period engraved script monogram and a legible maker's mark. These spoons measure between about 5 3/4 inches and 6 inches in length, and the set weighs about 84 grams altogether. Condition overall is good, with each spoon having moderate surface w...

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker John Reynolds (1770-1832), working from the 1790s through 1808 and probably much later. By style, this spoon should date to circa 1810 or later. This is one of several marks attributed to Reynolds; others include a different initials mark, and the mark J.Reynolds in script. This mark is shown in several reference works on Maryland silver. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. I...

Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony and his son Michael. This partnership was short-lived, lasting only from 1810-14. The two spoons here were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" despite the rubbing of the marks, due to the extreme rarity of the mark of this partnership. The spoons are each also marked with the manufacturer's mark of Thomas Harper (working circa 1811-17), who also made silver for (Jean) Sim...
