Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver tablespoons by noted New York maker Albert Coles, in a pattern that may have been proprietary to his firm. I've seen teaspoons in this pattern over the years, and occasionally another form, but these are the first tablespoons...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver creamer (formerly a christening cup, but with a spout expertly added in the 19th Century) by Grosjean & Woodward of New York for Tiffany & Company, goldsmiths and silversmiths, at 550 Broadway. The original owner, Mary Myers Howard (1859-1937) was part of a prominent family that originated in North Carolina but eventually settled around Hagerstown, Maryland. Mary herself was born in Florida, before the family moved North...

Offered is a rare example of American coin silver made in Elyria, Ohio (a town somewhat west of Cleveland, near Lake Erie) - by the partnership of Seymour W. Baldwin and Orrin Cowles, working in partnership in Elyria between 1834 and 1839. This pair of sugar tongs measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 35 grams. The maker's mark of BALDWIN&COWLES in a rectangular punch is rubbed but quite legible. To see the maker's mark, click on the picture and scroll through the picture set...

Offered is a very nice large American coin silver teaspoon by jeweler James A. Webb, who established his store in Janesville, Wisconsin circa 1856, and was in business at least through the 1860s. He died in 1885. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. It is engraved with a period script monogram, and is clearly marked with a maker's mark or retailer's mark of J.A.WEBB...

Offered is a lovely old American coin silver table spoon by a maker who doesn't seem to have been documented, using the maker's mark R.MERRICK in a serrated punch. Examples of this man's work are in the Winterthur collection, with no location posited. It is evident, however, from the crudeness of the punch that a large-city origin point is unlikely. This piece is faintly engraved JK in period script. This tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by Kentucky silversmith James S. Sharrard, who purportedly started off in business in Georgetown, KY circa 1838, was in Paris, KY in 1840, and settled in Shelbyville, KY by 1841, working there until 1856, when he moved to Henderson, KY and worked there with his sons until about 1863. After that he resided in Louisville, KY until his death in 1880...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver dessert spoon in a single-struck variant of the Queen's pattern, by noted silversmith Frederick Marquand (b. 1799 - d. 1882), working in Savannah, GA between 1820-26 and in New York between 1826-39. Marquand was so successful that he retired at about age 40 in 1839 to manage his large land holdings and estates. He died in Connecticut, at his country house, having been born in that state in the last days of the 18th Century...

Offered is a lovely set of five early American coin silver teaspoons circa 1820-30 by York, Pennsylvania clockmaker and silversmith Richard Koch, working there between 1805 and his death in 1836, and succeeded by his nephew, Frederick B. Cook. Mr. Koch is known for his bird-back spoons and fine craft, but his silver is quite uncommon and he advertised mostly in German-language publications - hence he is not better documented. This set of spoons represents an good example of his craft...

Offered is a lovely pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by Norfolk, Virginia silversmith Charles Branda, and bearing his maker's mark on each arm. This pair of sugar tongs is also engraved with a period script monogram to the bow. By style, this piece should date to about 1825, give or take five years. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 45 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal surface wear and no dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a good pair of American coin silver sugar tongs bearing the mark of the firm of Augustus Hayden and William G. Whilden, working in Charleston, S.C., 1855 - 1863 or 1865. In addition to having a great deal of success as purveyors of silver flatware and hollowware, jewelry and the like, Hayden & Whilden were purveyors of military weapons and flags for the South during the Civil War. The partnership of Hayden and Whilden ended when William G. Whilden became a lieutenant in the elite Con...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver birdback spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Abraham Dubois (born ca. 1751, died 1807), who flourished both in this profession and as a trader in goods, primarily in the West Indies. Dubois made some very fine silver, including outstanding coffee pots and sugar urns. This teaspoon dates to about 1785 by style, give or take five years, and is marked with Dubois' full name maker's mark. It is also engraved with period owner's initials, and the ba...

Offered is a lovely example of the work of important Philadelphia silversmith Harvey Lewis, who is one of the pantheon of major silversmiths in American history. This teaspoon, dating by style to about 1810-15 give or take half a decade, is distinguished by its rare mark, which was mentioned but not photographed for Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths". In the several decades I've been involved with antique silver, this is the only example of this mark that I've come across, despite ...

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver master salt spoons or shovels by noted New York City silversmith William Adams (b. 1802 - d. 1861), an important and successful maker who received the commission for the Mace of the U.S. House of Representatives. Adams was listed in NYC directories between 1829 and 1862 (the latter being based on 1861 information). It is likely these particular spoons are from the first half of Adams' career. They measure about 3 3/8 inches in length each, and ...

Offered is a very interesting American coin silver table fork by Taylor & Hinsdale of New York, and bearing the mark of that firm as well as manufacturer's marks made to resemble English marks, albeit only vaguely. This piece perhaps was made to match an English set, though, given the form and weight - it measures about 8 inches in length and weighs about 63 grams. The armorial on this piece is period and is fascinating - it is of a rather wild-eyed priest holding a cross in one hand and a ros...

Offered is a rare and fine example of the work of the short-lived partnership of brothers Thomas Warner and Andrew Ellicott Warner, Sr., who formed their joint venture in 1805 and ended it when Thomas went to fight the British in the War of 1812. Each brother was exceptionally successful in his own right, working alone or otherwise, but for whatever reason work by the partnership is difficult to find, particularly with such a nice set of marks, including the partnership's maker's mark, the eagl...

Offered is a lovely and large late 18th Century American coin silver table spoon by well-known Preston, CT silversmith Samuel Avery (1760-1836), whose father John was also a prominent silversmith. Samuel Avery was quite successful and a fair amount of his silver survives; he went through a number of maker's marks over time. This piece likely dates to the 1790-1800 period, give or take a couple of years. It has a period engraved set of block initials for the monogram, and a well-struck maker's ...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Greencastle, Indiana (1860-1887) jeweler Alexander R. Brattin, who trained in Cincinnati in one of the large shops (perhaps Duhme & Co.), and then established his own firm in Greencastle just prior to the outbreak of war. He seems to have found much success there, and opened branch locations in Danville and Spencer in the mid-to-late 1880s. He moved on to Kansas City and then St. Louis late in life, and passed away in 1897 or so. This sp...
