Offered is a nice little Russian silver spoon, in a historical or traditional style, hallmarked on the side of the stem for St. Petersburg, circa 1889. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair at best as the handle has some twisting and waviness. However, this piece could still be used as a sugar spoon, for tea, etc. All in all a nice old Russian silver spoon!

Offered is a useful English sterling silver Georgian sauce or gravy ladle, bearing hallmarks including a lion passant and date letter that appear to correspond to those used in 1767. I can't make out the maker's mark, but the initials used appear to include a "W". There is no engraved crest or monogram, and no obvious sign of erasure though doubtless there was one at one time. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 41 grams...

Offered is a lovely and quite early George II English sterling silver basting spoon or hash spoon by noted specialist spoonmaker Philip Roker II, working from the 1720s on. The maker's mark on this spoon was registered in August 1720 and used at least through 1735, and this piece is consistent with similar hash spoons with date letters in the 1730s...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved Ivy pattern pierced ladle with gilt bowl, by Henry Hebbard (patented circa 1865) and later Whiting. This piece dates to the first years of the sterling era, probably around 1865-75. It measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 40 grams. The only marks are the patent date mark and a sterling mark, as this piece seems not to have made it to sale by a retailer...

Offered is a lovely and heavy early Victorian English sterling silver fish server by the well-known partnership of London silversmiths William Theobalds and Robert Metcalfe Atkinson, working together circa 1838-40. Though short-lived, this partnership produced a fair amount of high-quality flatware and servers.

This fish slice has a nicely executed pierced pattern, and extremely clear and well preserved hallmarks and maker's mark...

Offered is an interesting and unusual early 18th Century Brittania standard English silver tablespoon hallmarked for London, and what appears to be the year 1715 or so. The maker's mark is poorly struck but looks like it may be "Sc", which would make it likely the maker is William Scarlett, specialist spoonmaker of London working in this period. Scarlett was prolific and experimented with form, so that would make sense. This spoon has a very unusual midrib that branches out into almost a diam...

Offered is a rare 270-year old Norwegian master salt spoon by Frederikshald (now known as Halden) silversmith Lorentz Hoffman (alternate spelling, Hofmand), who was born circa 1692 and died in 1767. This piece is marked LH over 1746 for the maker's mark and year of manufacture, and FH for Frederikshald. These marks appear in "Norske Solvstempler" by Jorunn Fossberg, page 29. The third mark may be an assay master's mark, but I can't be certain. It is quite uncommon to see domestic Norwegian s...

This piece is fully hallmarked for London, 1843, and appears to bear a maker's mark used by specialist maker John James Whiting. This fish server has interesting die-struck rococo decoration to the handle, and gorgeous pierced work to the blade, which spells FISH in fancy script. The piercing is so ornate that it takes a mome...
