Offered is a lovely set of four early American coin silver table spoons by Rhode Island silversmith Walter Cornell (b. 1729 - d. 1801), working either in Providence, according to some publications, or in Newport, according to others, between 1780 and 1801. It is unclear what he was doing prior to 1780, as it would be unusual to commence business as a silversmith and clockmaker at the age of 50...

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...

Offered is a lovely and early American coin silver tea or coffee spoon circa 1775-85, by maker "JA"; I've not solved the maker of this mark (if you can, I will send you a coin silver teaspoon!), but a Hanoverian pattern teaspoon circa 1760-70 with the same mark is shown in the Winterthur online collection. In addition to the maker's mark, this piece is decorated with a period engraved block initial monogram of "O*F"...

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...

Offered is a very good and quite heavy American coin silver table spoon and two matching and equally substantial table forks in the fiddlethread pattern by Marquand & Co., working in New York circa 1833-39. These pieces are marked with a clear, well-struck maker's mark and is also engraved with a very well done period script monogram of NDCM. Interestingly, the forks have a different pseudo-hallmark (an eagle) than does the tablespoon (a lion)...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon decorated in a feather-edge Old English pattern style, with a period block monogram and worn die-struck shell decoration. This piece does not appear to have a maker's mark, but by style can be dated to the 1780-90 period, give or take a couple of years. It measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some modest tip wear and some very small dimples to the bowl...

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...

Offered is a fine group of three American coin silver egg spoons by the noted Philadelphia firm of Bailey & Co., circa 1863. Each spoon has a full set of marks for Bailey & Co., as well as manufacturer's marks presumably for George Sharp, and a tiny engraved date of 1863 to the reverse. This date is likely contemporaneous with the period script monogram inside the shield on the front of each spoon, and these pieces were probably given as a gift at a wedding or other important occasion...

This piece has a clear set of marks and a period engraved script monogram to the front of the handle. There is also a later monogram to the back of the handle. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams...

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 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. 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...

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. Condition is fair, with the bowl a bit out of round and having modest tip wear, but...

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 American coin silver teaspoon by the partnership of brothers Bela Scoville Squire and Seth P. Squire, working in partnership from about 1845-53 in New York City. This isn't a rare mark, or a particularly distinguished spoon, but it is in excellent condition has good weight, and bears attractive period engraving for the original owner, one C. A. Bamford. This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about 25 grams. It is quite sturdy. Condition is excellent, with...
