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 very good set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Amable Brasier (b. 1764 - d. 1842), working in that city between about 1795 and 1826. These three teaspoons are in a fin-less fiddle pattern and probably date to between 1800 and 1810. Each piece is expertly engraved 'EW' in period script. Each spoon also bears Brasier's maker's mark - one mark is rubbed but legible, and the other two are clear and well-struck...

Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver teaspoons marked R.Wilson in script, for Robert Wilson, silversmith of New York and then Philadelphia, prior to his death in 1824. Mr. Wilson's sons, Robert and William, went on to great success after Robert Sr.'s death, establishing one of the most prolific silver manufacturing operations in the first half of the 19th Century...

Offered is an excellent pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by Philadelphia silversmith John Owen, working circa 1802-31. These teaspoons are each initialed "SA" in period script, and each has a clear, well-struck maker's mark of J.OWEN in a serrated rectangular punch. These spoons measure about 5 inches in length and the pair weighs about 21 grams altogether. Condition is excellent, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of this man's output!

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 lovely and amazingly well-preserved pair of early American coin silver tablespoons 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. These tablespoons are outstanding examples of his craft...

Another mystery piece and mark, at least to me! Perhaps I've overlooked something obvious about this crested silver cream ladle, circa 1810-25, but I am assuming it to be American coin silver, probably from the New England region. However, I've had no luck tracking down a potential maker, despite a good maker's mark with relatively uncommon initials. The maker's mark is a crude "SL", indicating perhaps more provincial or small-town manufacture, though this is not dispositive...

Offered is a very rare early American coin silver teaspoon by Philadelphia silversmith Peter Gallard, working circa 1800-22. This piece by style should date to the 1810-22 period; see my other listings for a teaspoon that is probably from the first decade of Mr. Gallard's career. This spoon has a clear maker's mark and a good period engraved script monogram of "AS"...

Offered is a very sought-after table spoon from the heavy and luxurious American coin silver fiddlethread pattern made by celebrated Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Fletcher, circa 1827-42. Fletcher's fiddlethread is probably the height of quality for this pattern in America prior to the Civil War - it is uniformly excellent, and heavy. It virtually always has a well-done period script monogram to the reverse ("SHS" on this piece), making it quite possible to build a full service in this pattern...

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 fine American coin silver teaspoon by the noted Philadelphia partnership of Jehu & William L. Ward, working in that city between 1837 and 1850, when Jehu died. This piece bears one of several maker's marks used by the prolific pair, and the mark on this particular spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan. This spoon also has a good engraved period script monogram. It measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is good overall, ...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by jeweler and silversmith Samuel W. Pepper, son of the much more well-known Henry J. Pepper, silversmith of Wilmington and Philadelphia. Samuel worked only a year or two in Delaware, spending the majority of his career in Philadelphia. His spoons are usually marked as here - just PEPPER, incuse. This piece has a clear mark and a period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is g...
