Offered is a very nice American coin silver dessert spoon by S. M. Hopper of Philadelphia, working at 66 Chesnut Street when this spoon was made, per the maker's mark and address mark on the spoon. That indicates the spoon was made between 1847 and 1856. The marks on this particular spoon were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. This piece also has a nicely engraved period script monogram. It measures about 7 inches in length and weighs about 27 grams...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver teaspoon by well-known Philadelphia jeweler and spoon manufacturer Phineas Fries, working there from 1837 through the 1870s or later. This spoon most likely dates to the 1840s or 1850s but could be a little later. It is engraved with a period script monogram and is struck with a clear maker's mark and, unusually, a COIN standard mark - not common for this firm...

Offered is a nice fluted-bowl American coin silver master salt spoon by well-known Philadelphia makers Butler & McCarty. This piece probably dates to the 1850s. It is uncommon in that it bears the initials-only maker's mark the partnership used infrequently on flatware, and more often on spectacles and other smalls. This piece also has a period engraved script monogram. It measures about four inches in length and weighs about 8 grams...

Offered is a rare example of the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Alfred C. Doron (b. 1833 - d. 1905), a little-known watchmaker and jeweler working in Burlington and/or Mt. Holly, New Jersey in the 1850s through the 1890s. He was likely a son of one John Doron, watchmaker, born in 1801 and working in Burlington County, New Jersey as well. Alfred Doron was born in Vincentown, one of the towns where John Doron had resided...

Offered is a truly lovely pair of early American coin silver teaspoons made by Silas White Howell (b. 1770 - d. 1805), who was working in Morristown, New Jersey as a silversmith and clockmaker by about 1792 and was still there in 1796; by 1797 he had relocated to Albany, New York and lived and worked in that area until his death in 1805...

Offered is a good and scarce Southern coin silver teaspoon with the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Charles Frederick Greenwood, living in Edenton, North Carolina in 1846 and then opening a small silversmith and jeweler's shop in Norfolk, VA in 1847. This spoon bears the earlier of his two marks, and he seems to have adopted sterling fairly early, so it would most likely date to the 1847-65 period, probably on the earlier end...

Offered is a good fiddlethread pattern American coin silver teaspoon made by Watts and bearing the retailer's mark of jewelers Theodore Smith and Ferdinand J. Dreer, Jr., working in partnership in Philadelphia from at least 1866 (see pictures for an 1866 ad of theirs) through the 1890s. This piece has a clear mark for the partnership, which until now I had not seen an example of. It also has a good period engraved script monogram, and manufacturer's marks for James Watts of Philadelphia...

Offered is a very fine and scarce pair of early American coin silver tablespoons marked with a standard mark of "5 FRANCS", by the noted Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson, working circa 1825-50.

Offered is a nice American coin silver salt shovel by prolific Lancaster, Pennsylvania jewelers, watchmakers and silversmiths Michael Zahm and John W. Jackson, working in partnership as Zahm & Jackson from about 1845 on. This spoon is in poor condition, with a dinged up and split bowl and worn maker's mark - however, I just can't stand to see it go into the melting pot, and hope someone will want to "adopt" it! It measures about 4 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams. This piece feature...

Offered is an early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark of New York City silversmith John Foster, working circa 1809-18. This fin-less fiddle spoon probably dates to the earlier side of Foster's career, though his working life seems to have been somewhat short. The maker's mark on this spoon is clear and well-struck; it is sometimes attributed to the Virginia John Foster, but that attribution seems to have been definitively debunked by Catherine Hollan in her "Virginia Silve...

Offered is a fine set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by Harrisburg craftsman Joseph Doll (1768-1818), who is listed in that town from 1795 to 1818, primarily working as a silversmith and clockmaker.
