Offered is an excellent Southern coin silver teaspoon in the fiddlethread pattern, bearing only a maker's mark for George MacPherson, working in Natchez circa 1843-71. Most of the silver sold by MacPherson was made by Wood & Hughes, but some pieces found in Natchez bear only MacPherson's mark, as with this piece; the theory is that such pieces could have been made locally. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs a heavy 33 grams...

Offered is a very good American coin silver fork in the fiddlethread pattern by Samuel Kirk & Son, dating to the period of 1846-61, when the particular maker's mark found on this piece was in use. This fork is also engraved with a period armorial of a mailed arm grasping a broken lance or spear, perhaps for the Player family. This piece measures about 6 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 53 grams. It may be a dessert fork or a salad fork, and has very good weight...

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver tablespoon in a specific variation of the fiddle pattern with flared shoulders and pointed end that I've observed only in Kentucky pieces. This piece is engraved with a worn period script family name, and is marked only W.P.LOOMIS, for the Frankfort, KY silversmith, jeweler and watchmaker. He seems to have first appeared in Frankfort around 1809, and was born in Massachusetts circa 1794...

Offered is a lovely and rare example of the earlier of two maker's marks used by S. Robb, a mysterious figure working in Xenia and/or Chillicothe, Ohio, probably between about 1820 and 1840.

This piece appears to be from the 1820s, given the wrigglework arch drop and the shoulders...

Offered is a interesting American coin silver cream or sauce ladle by Constant Southworth (a rare mark by a little-known maker). Mr. Southworth was born in 1802 in Sheffield, Massachusetts, and married there in 1823. By 1830 he was working about 6 1/2 miles away in Great Barrington, continuing there until after 1850. He died in 1876.

This piece measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 23 grams. Condition is fair, as there is no monogram and the piece was likely buffed at so...

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. These teaspoo...

This piece has a clear, well-struck mark and a period engraved script monogram. This table spoon measures about 8 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 44 grams.

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver table spoons by noted New York City silversmith Garret Forbes (1785-1851), who worked primarily from about 1805 to about 1820.

The spoons each measure about 8 3/4 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about 110 grams.

Offered is an interesting fiddle pattern American coin silver teaspoon with a faded period engraved script monogram, and a maker's mark of J.HARTT. This mark has been tentatively ascribed to Judah Hart(t), who spent most of his working life in Connecticut, and then moved to Brownhelm, Ohio in 1822. Judah Hart died in Brownhelm in 1824 and is buried there. It is possible this spoon was made in Ohio, and it certainly dates to the late period in Mr. Hart(t)'s career. This piece measures about 6...

Offered is a gorgeous pair of American coin silver sugar tongs 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 ...

Offered is a good Tuscan pattern American coin silver tablespoon, circa 1850, retailed by Harbottle & Smith of Auburn, NY. This pattern was patented by Michael Gibney in 1846, and has remained popular ever since. This tablespoon measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs a good 62 grams, or about two troy ounces. It is engraved with a fancy script monogram that appears to be somewhat later, probably over an erasure. It is well done, however. Condition overall is very good, with minima...
