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!

Offered is a very good, and possibly unique, early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Richard Parker, working briefly circa 1785 and then disappearing from the records. According to Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (the mark on this particular spoon was used for that book), birdbacks by Parker are known, so he may have had some success in the field for a brief time. However, this is the only example of Parker's work that I've ever seen...

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...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon by prolific maker Osborn Conrad, working in Philadelphia circa 1841-51. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. It has a clear maker's mark and a large, somewhat simplified but period monogram, done by a novice engraver. Condition is good overall, with some bumps to the bowl but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable spoon!

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 1800-10 period; see my other listings for a teaspoon that is probably from the second decade of Mr. Gallard's career. 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...

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 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 good 18th Century American coin silver tablespoon by Norwalk, CT silversmith and Revolutionary War veteran Jacob Jennings (b. 1739 - d. 1817), working in Norwalk circa 1763-1810. By style, this piece should date to the 1780s, though it could date to the 1790s as well. This large and impressive tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 60 grams. It is superbly engraved with a period feathered script monogram of "GMA" - please see all the pictures...

Offered is an interesting and heavy early American coin silver table spoon by scarce Connecticut silversmith Christopher Gallup; by style, this piece should date to about 1810 but could be a few years earlier or later. This piece bears Gallup's maker's mark of CG in a serrated rectangle, and is engraved with period script initials CMG. This spoon measures about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 55 grams...

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 American coin silver teaspoon bearing the retailer's mark of Bethlehem jeweler and watchmaker James K. Rauch, who was in business for about 65 years. His biographical information appears below. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram of "MSB" to the front. It also has an interesting close-to-period script monogram of "H de S" to the reverse. This piece also bears a manufacturer's mark for James Watts of Philadelphia. The spoon probably da...

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 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 an early American coin silver tablespoon by noted New York silversmith Daniel Van Voorhis, circa 1780-90. This piece could have been made when Van Voorhis was working in New York, in Princeton, NJ, or in Philadelphia. It appears by style to date to the 1780s. This piece measures about 8 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 54 grams. In addition to a maker's mark (full name) and pseudo-hallmark, this piece is decorated with engraving including a period script monogram. Condition ...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver spoon in the coffin-end pattern marked WILLARD, probably for a silversmith named A. Willard who may have worked in Utica. The spoon has a "Utica look" - however, I could be wrong. In any event, it is a lovely little piece. This spoon measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. There is no monogram or obvious sign of erasure. All in all a fine example of this...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon made by Ebenezer Moulton of Newburyport and Boston, MA, circa 1795-1805. The Moulton family of silversmiths is famous and well-documented. This teaspoon has a period engraved script monogram and a well-struck maker's mark. It measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is only fair as there is a scratch above the monogram and surface wear overall. There are no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable pi...
