This piece also has an engraved period script monogram. It measures about six inches in length and weighs about 19 grams...

Offered is an early American coin silver spoon with a maker's mark of T. Campbell, possibly for watchmaker/jeweler Thomas Campbell of New York and then Philadelphia, or perhaps not. Hollan records this Campbell as working in NY from 1817 on, so perhaps not early enough. Thomas Boyle Campbell of Virginia used a different maker's mark and his silver is somewhat different in style, so I don't think there is a connection there...

Offered is a nicely decorated late 18th Century American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Philadelphia, PA and Lansingburgh, NY silversmith David Smith, working in Philadelphia circa 1778-87, and in Lansingburgh from about 1787-93. This piece is engraved with a period monogram within a nicely done reserve, in the New York style. As such, the spoon likely dates from Mr. Smith's Lansingburgh years. The maker's mark is rubbed but legible...

Offered is an interesting and odd American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 7/8 inches in length and weighing about 12 grams, marked CLARK in crude roman caps. I can't tell whether this is a legitimate mark, or a spurious mark meant to emulate one for Joseph Clark, Jr. - the placement of the letters are quite close to his known full name mark, and the die looks consistent with one that was worn and cut down. However, the piece has some question marks...

Offered is an interesting early silver spoon that I strongly suspect is coin silver; it was part of an assembled collection out of Massachusetts. This piece appears to be marked "BS" or perhaps "RS", but then it is subject to interpretation. There is the remnant of another mark, but it isn't a lion passant as the orientation of the lion would be all wrong. This piece appears to date to about 1760-80. It measures about 4 1/16 inches in length, and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon, circa 1795-1805, by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 6 inches in length and weighing about 19 grams. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "SM". This spoon is marked to the reverse with one of McMullin's earlier maker's marks...

Offered is a rare and lovely early American coin silver spoon by Nazareth, Pennsylvania silversmith Josiah O. 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. It has a good clear maker's mark and a lovely period engraved script "ECD"...

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 ...

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". Chaudron soon gave up farming and moved to Mobile, where he lived for the next few decades until his death in ...

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. There are som...

Offered is a good American coin silver dinner fork in one of Robert and William Wilson's proprietary patterns. I don't know its name, but it is a bead and shell pattern. This piece measures about 7 1/2 inches in length and weighs a substantial 51 grams. This fork has a maker's mark for the Wilsons to the reverse, and a period engraved script monogram of "MER" to the reverse. Condition is very good aside from some even tine wear; there are no splits or repairs. All in all a fine and useful p...

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 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 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 ...
