Offered is a lovely pair of two-century old Swedish silver sugar tongs, by a silversmith with the initials SMI, SHI, IHS or IMS, working in Göteborg (Gothenburg) around 1814, the date of assay of this piece. This pair of sugar tongs is quite nice in terms of decoration, and has a period script monogram to one arm. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 36 grams. Condition is very good, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a very rare example of the work of Guilford, Connecticut silversmith Samuel Parmelee (Parmele), working circa 1757 to perhaps his death in 1807. His work seems to be very rare from about 1775 and later, though this spoon has his documented mark and appears to date to about 1800. Samuel Parmelee served in the Revolutionary War, ultimately achieving the rank of Captain. This spoon measures about 5 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 11 grams...

Offered is a nice unmarked coin silver teaspoon, probably from the greater Boston area or elsewhere in New England, engraved with a period script monogram. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair overall, with some wear and some small dings to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice usable coin silver spoon reaching its two-hundredth birthday!

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...

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 nice American coin silver master salt spoon by Jabez Gorham and son John Gorham of Providence, Rhode Island, working in partnership between 1841 and 1850.

This piece is also engraved with the family name of the original owner(s). It measures about 3 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 5 grams...

Offered is a pair of early American coin silver teaspoons decorated in the New York fashion, and marked R&C in script in a conformed punch, most likely for Riker & Clapp, working in New York City between 1800 and 1802. This may be a mark that was not long in service, as it seems very uncommon. These spoons have rubbed but legible maker's marks, and a period engraved monogram to each handle. They measure about 5 1/2 inches in length, and weigh a total of about 25 grams...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver gravy ladle or sauce ladle by Edward and David Kinsey of Cincinnati, working circa 1844-61. This piece has a twist handle and excellent decoration, as well as a period monogram to the front, and a period inscription to the back. The inscription is almost certainly of the same date as the monogram...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver teaspoon by Prisca Levan Mannerback (Mannerbach), son of the well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback. The younger Mannerbach/Mannerback, who went by Levan based on his maker's mark, started working under his own mark not much earlier than 1825, given that he was born in 1807, and that would make him 18 in 1825. For that reason, it is surprising how early this spoon is by style, with a slim fiddle handle and no shoulders...

Offered is a good set of three American coin silver teaspoons bearing the mark of Johann Matthias Bonnet, Sr. (b. 1811, d. 1882), working in Zanesville from 1835 to his death. Bonnet was primarily a clockmaker and retailer, but also sold jewelry and silver flatware. These spoons probably date to the 1835-50 period, and are each marked with a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark for Bonnet. Each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram...

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". This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair at best, some di...

Offered is a very rare American coin silver spoon by R. & W. Wilson of Philadelphia - rare because of the other mark on the spoon - "CROWNS". This denotes the highest standard of silver used in production by the Wilsons, as described in an 1826 newspaper advertisement they published (please review all of the pictures). In two decades of looking at hundreds or thousands of Wilson pieces, this is the first I've come across with this mark. This piece has a very clear maker's mark and fineness ma...

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 ...

This piece is engraved with period script initials of "PS" and has a maker's mark of I.MYERS to the reverse. This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about 12 grams.

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 pair of American coin silver teaspoons by Poplar Ridge, New York silversmith T. P. Cranson, about whom little seems to be known. By the style of a few pieces observed, he seems to have worked in the 1820s through perhaps the 1840s. These teaspoons have legible maker's marks, and have a the great addition of a town mark for Poplar Ridge. Please review all the photos. There are no monograms, but there probably was an erasure at one point, as the spatulate end of the front o...

Offered is a nice long-handled condiment spoon bearing a rare mark - that of H. N. Greene of Mansfield, Ohio, working there circa 1855-70. This is the first and only piece of silver bearing this maker's mark that I've seen. This piece is engraved in period script for the original owner, and has a very clear and well struck maker's mark. It measures about 5 3/16 inches in length, and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair, with some ripples to the handle and a ding to the bowl, but no splits...

Offered is a nice Kentucky silver teaspoon from the Louisville establishment of Gustav Adolph Schultz (b. 1842, d. 1892), engraved for the Pate family of that city. Please see my other listings for three tablespoons and a table fork from the same service. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 21 grams. It bears a manufacturer's mark for Wood & Hughes and a retailer's mark of G.A.SCHULTZ. It probably dates to the very early 1870s. Condition is fair at best, as there...
