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 an interesting early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark L&B in large block letters. This piece dates to about 1810-20, and the squared shoulders and style of monogram would fit Philadelphia as well as inland PA, MD and VA. The best fit I can make for this mark is the partnership of Larit (Laret) & Brechemin of Philadelphia, working circa 1816-18; it an attribution based on a sample size of one, but perhaps has a basis...

Offered is a wonderful early American coin silver stuffing spoon 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 gorgeous and in superb condition, with minimal wear and no dings, dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a scarce pair of St. Charles, Missouri coin silver table spoons by jeweler and watchmaker Ludwig Meyer (or possibly his son, August(us) A. Meyer), working in St. Charles circa 1835-74. These tablespoons probably date to the 1850s but could be a few years earlier or later. This pair is faintly monogrammed, with what appears to be period script initials 'SAA'. Each spoon bears a well-struck maker's mark or retailer's mark and a town mark for St. Charles...

This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about 25 grams. It is quite sturdy...

Mr. Cornelius, who came to the U.S. from Holland, worked only briefly as a silversmith in the U.S., from about 1810-14.

Offered is a lovely, well made and well preserved early American coin silver table spoon by noted Norfolk silversmith and jeweler Joseph Clarico (b. 1785 - d. 1828), working in Norfolk at least from about 1810 to his death in 1828. His advertisements indicated all kinds of silverwork could be made by his shop, so he or journeymen working for him appear to have made some or all of the silver he sold. This piece probably dates to the latter part of his career, based on the discussion about his s...

Offered is a rare example of the use of die-struck sheaf-of-wheat decoration in Philadelphia; the Thibault family and the Wilsons used it a bit, but few examples exist bearing the mark of others, such as the well-known firm of Fletcher & Gardiner. In several decades of following Philadelphia coin silver, I can think of only one other occasion where I've observed sheaf-of-wheat spoons with Fletcher & Gardiner's maker's mark.

The decoration on this particular pair of teaspoons is extremely we...

Offered is a lovely and amazingly well-preserved set of five American coin silver spoons by well-known Wilmington, DE silversmith General James Wolf, working circa 1800-22 in that city. Although "General" is part of his given name, Mr. Wolf did serve in the military during the War of 1812, and attained the rank of Major. Wolf's silver-work is sought after and desirable; he made a variety of flatware and hollowware forms over the course of his career, and he was quite productive. Although I've...

Offered is a good and scarce pair of American coin silver table spoons from Hagerstown, Maryland.

These spoons bear the maker's mark of Thomas Alexander Boullt (1818-1876), a well-known Hagerstown silversmith, jeweler, watchmaker and clockmaker. Take a look at all the pictures In the latter part of his long (1846-70s) career, Boullt was advertising as a jeweler a...
