Beitel, who was born and died in Nazareth (b. 1811, d. 1898, and worked there all his life. Mr. Beitel apprenticed under Jedediah Weiss in 1825, and this spoon probably dates to shortly after that.

Offered is a rare example of the work of important Franco-American silversmith Jean-Simon Chaudron, who enjoyed much success in Philadelphia alone and in partnership between 1793 and 1820; Chaudron's work is highly sought after for its quality. Despite prospering in Philadelphia, Chaudron moved after 1820 to Demopolis, Alabama to be part of the Franco-American "Vine and Olive Colony"...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon from the late 18th Century, bearing period engraved block initials but without a maker's mark. Although this piece could be from anywhere in theory, it has certain proportions that might support a guess of a New Hampshire origin. Hard to explain - more of a "feel" thing. This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs...

This fork has a maker's mark for the Wilsons to the reverse, and a period engraved script monogram of "MER" to the reverse.

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 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 lovely and very early American coin silver table spoon by New York silversmith Peter Vergereau. According to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:

"Peter Vergereau is probably the individual born into New York City’s French community and baptised at the Église Françoise à la Nouvelle York on August 21, 1700. He was granted freeman status in 1721, which would have been the logical time for him to begin practicing his craft after an average apprenticeship. Vergereau was married ...

Offered is a lovely pair of late 18th Century Rhode Island coin silver table spoons by noted silversmith Thomas Arnold (b. 1735 - d. 1828), working in Newport between about 1760 and 1817. These tablespoons are decorated with period engraved script monograms, the placement and style of which closely relates to the engraving on other Thomas Arnold spoons of the period. These spoons by style should date to about 1785-1800, but could be a few years earlier or later. Each spoon is marked with bot...

Offered is an excellent early American coin silver dessert spoon by noted Lancaster, PA silversmith William Haverstick, Sr. (1756-1823), circa 1790-1800. Although many teaspoons by William Haverstick Sr. and Jr. (who used the same mark) have been observed, and a fair number of tablespoons, dessert spoons are much more rare. This particular piece measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 35 grams. It is graced with a very well executed period script engraved monogram of "AC" and 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.

Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is excell...

This spoon has a clear maker's mark and a good period engraved script monogram of "EG". This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition overall is very good, with modest surface wear...

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. This...
