This spoon is an interesting mystery, that might be easily solved, or not. If you can provide a definitive identification of the maker of this spoon, with a reference, you will receive a nice coin silver spoon in good condition, or $15 off your next order with me. This spoon resembles some spoons by William Moulton, and may be by him, though I've not located a reference to this specific maker's mark. It could also be by someone else. The heel is quite specific...

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver dessert spoon by noted Norfolk, Virginia silversmith Joseph M. Freeman, with period engraving of "Dr. Willson" over "USN". This piece probably dates to the 1830s or 1840s, and Dr. Willson was presumably a Navy surgeon attached to the Atlantic Fleet at Norfolk at that time. Given the Navy's extensive records and the availability of resources at Norfolk and at the Navy Museum in Washington, it is quite likely Dr. Willson could be tracked down and pinpointed...

It also features a good period engraved script "EJM" monogram. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams...

NOT FOR SALE - Here's a challenge - a circa 1790-1810 American coin silver tablespoon marked only IS in a large serrated punch, with a nicely engraved period script monogram of GJM and a V-shaped drop. This piece measures about 9 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 59 grams. It came in a lot with a piece by Caleb Bentley of DC, VA and MD, and it has the look of rural VA, MD or PA. I haven't seen this particular mark before, and am hoping someone else has...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver table spoon by Prisca Levan Mannerback (Mannerbach), son of the well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback. The younger Mannerbach/Mannerback, who went by Levan based on his maker's mark, started working under his own mark not much earlier than 1825, given that he was born in 1807, and that would make him 18 in 1825. This piece probably dates to the 1825-40 period. You can see all the pictures by clicking on the first picture...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon with a very unusual maker's mark of Zahm's Corner. This refers to the shop in the late 1860s or 1870s run by the silversmith E. J. Zahm. The shop was at the corner of N. Queen St. and Center Square. This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition overall is good, with modest wear from normal use but no dents aside from normal small dimples, and no splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example from the ...

These spoons each bear the Wilsons' maker's mark and a city mark of PHILADA, and each has a well done period engraved script monogram. Please take a look at the various pictures. These spoons measure between 7 1/8 inches and 7 1/4 inches in length, and the total weight of the group is about 226 grams. Th...

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. Marquand produced and sold h...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Shoemaker, circa 1805-15. This piece has a good period engraved script monogram and a clear maker's mark. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. Condition is fair at best, with some dents to the bowl and a slight twist to the handle, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of a short-lived style in Philadelphia coin silver!

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. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite poss...

Offered is a good and scarce pair of American coin silver table spoons from Hagerstown, Maryland. Some consider silver from Maryland towns like Hagerstown to be Southern coin silver due to the sympathies of many of the inhabitants. 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...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver coffee spoon or teaspoon by noted New York silversmith Silas White (b. ca. 1737 - d. 1798), circa 1775-85 by style, and probably on the earlier end of that range. This piece has one of White's maker's marks documented at Winterthur and elsewhere, and shares the distinctive drop with other spoons bearing his mark. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved block initial monogram. This spoon measures about 4 3/8 inches in length...

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably T...

Offered is a very early early (circa 1760-80) American coin silver tea or coffee spoon that appears to have a maker's mark of BB, for which there would be several candidates. This piece measures about 4 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. This spoon has some condition issues in that there is a fissure on the front stem from the stress of where the maker's mark was struck, and the spoon has been buffed. There are also some planishing marks visible on the end of the underside of the...

Offered is a very good American coin silver dessert spoon bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Samuel A. Mansfield (born 1826 in Delaware, died 1907 in Philadelphia), who probably apprenticed under Thomas Megear of Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia, and who was living with Megear in 1850. This spoon may date to around that period as the STANDARD mark used on this spoon is from a die owned by Megear. Mansfield later moved in with his brother and was working as a watchmaker, silversmith,...
