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...

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver table spoons in an uncommon and perhaps rare pattern, bearing NY manufacturer's marks (the pseudo-hallmarks) and a retailer's mark of S.Y. & Co. - the retailer could have been anywhere, but perhaps this one has been identified by someone. Despite many years of handling coin silver, I've not come across this particular pattern variation before; it is quite attractive. These tablespoons are also engraved with a period owner's name in script...

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...

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...

Offered is a lovely and large late 18th Century American coin silver table spoon by well-known Preston, CT silversmith Samuel Avery (1760-1836), whose father John was also a prominent silversmith. Samuel Avery was quite successful and a fair amount of his silver survives; he went through a number of maker's marks over time. This piece likely dates to the 1790-1800 period, give or take a couple of years...

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 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 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 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 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...

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...

This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about 25 grams. It is quite sturdy. Condition is excellent, with...

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...
