Offered is an interesting set of four 19th Century Scottish sterling silver tea or coffee spoons embossed or decorated with what appears to be a grape vine motif, fully hallmarked for a maker of T&Co., and Glasgow, 1891. These spoons measure about 4 7/8 inches in length, and the set weighs about 57 grams altogether. Condition ranges from good to fair, with some two spoons in basically good condition with modest wear, and two having bowls out of round or slightly dimpled. It's still worth keep...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver cream or sauce ladle by Joseph Sewall Porter (1783-1862), working in Utica, NY circa 1803-62. This ladle probably dates to about 1820-35, by style.

It also has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a later (but 19th Century) engraved date of 1806 to the reverse. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 19 grams. It is in very goo...

Offered is a beat-up late 18th or early 19th Century American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Lownes (1758-1820). This piece has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a worn period engraved script monogram. It measures about 5 5/16 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. Condition is fair at best, with some dings and tip wear, and a fair amount of surface wear. There are no splits or repairs noted. I'd rather not see it scrapped, and it could still serve th...

Offered is a good American coin silver teaspoon by the Philadelphia partnership of Stauffer & Harley, working from the early 1850s through the early 1860s. This piece is engraved with a period script monogram as well as the date 1859 to the reverse, and may date to around that time - though the engraved date would probably be a little later. This piece also has a clear, well-struck maker's mark or retailer's mark. This spoon measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. It...

Offered is a scarce early American coin silver teaspoon by Chambersburg, Pennsylvania clockmaker and silversmith Charles Young (fl. 1791-1833), circa 1791-1800. It is unusual to find such early American silver from a Chambersburg craftsman, and Charles Young's work is rare.

This spoon is marked with a clear strike of Charles Young's maker's mark (see pictures), and this spoon is also decorated with a period engraved script monogram. This spoon measures about 5 3/8 inches in length, and...

Offered is a set of three American coin silver teaspoons circa 1835-50, judging by the marks from the Buffalo, NY area, engraved with a great armorial of an arm grasping a pennant or signal flag that displays three pellets or balls; this could be a family armorial, or an insignia associated with a military unit such as an artillery company. These spoons measure about six inches in length and the three weigh about 50 grams altogether. Condition is very good overall, with one spoon having a very...

Offered is a lovely Irish Georgian sterling silver hash spoon or stuffing spoon by noted Dublin silversmith Samuel Neville, and fully hallmarked (in a spot on the piece that is transitional) for Dublin, 1803 (or just possibly 1799). The prominent feature of this excellent serving piece is the armorial of a pelican in its piety, feeding its chicks with its own blood in the nest. This armorial is associated with the Stewart/Stuart clans of Ireland and elsewhere in the UK. This platter spoon als...

Offered is a good Ohio coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Joseph Budd, whose biographical information appears below. I'll be listing other items by Budd from a small collection in the coming days. This teaspoon is engraved "HLS" in period script and bears a clear maker's mark (the smaller of two known marks for Budd).

See my other listings for a pair of teaspoons from the same family, engraved "HMS".

This spoon measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weigh about 13 gram...

Offered is a nice and scarce American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddle and thread (fiddlethread) pattern, by Oscar S. Jennings, working in New York circa 1837-58 and in New Orleans around 1860-62. The fiddlethread pattern was popular in both New York and New Orleans throughout Jennings' working period, but it seems he was mostly focused on selling pistols and swords in New Orleans during the beginning of the Civil War - it's more likely, though not certain, that this spoon dates to his New Yo...

Offered is a nice and scarce American coin silver teaspoon dating to around the beginning of the 19th Century and made by George Hendel, a celebrated silversmith of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. In 2009, a tea service by Hendel sold at auction for $90,000. This teaspoon is slightly more affordable. It has a legible maker's mark of GH in an oval, and a period engraved script monogram of TMcM. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is fairly good, with...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon by a maker with a well-made "T.B" mark, circa 1805-15. Although this mark has been given to Newburyport, Mass. silversmith Theophilus Bradbury in one book on the basis of a single spoon with no provenance, that spoon and the several others I'm aware of with this mark have essentially nothing in common with Bradbury's known work, so he can be largely discounted as the putative maker of this piece.

Offered is a beat-up American coin silver spoon with a scarce mark of FOWLE&KIRKLAND in a serrated punch, used by the Northampton, MA partnership of Nathaniel Fowle and Samuel Warner Kirkland, circa 1828-33. This piece has a rubbed but legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. This spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length, and weighs about 15 grams. Condition is pretty poor overall, but it would be a shame to consign this to the smelter. All in all a nice Northampton coi...

Offered is a nice example of a coin silver spoon evidently made as a toy or for the use of a small child, measuring 4 3/16 inches in length and weighing about 7 grams. Ordinarily I might assume this is simply a spoon form (as opposed to ladle form) master salt spoon, but with the engraving of the name "Bertie" (a diminutive of "Robert"), I have to assume it was made for a child. This piece has no maker's mark, but by style it should date to the 1825-50 period. It has some wear and small dings...
