$22.50
Offered is a nice set of English Georgian sterling silver sugar tongs for everyday use; these have a maker's mark of IL and Georgian-era hallmarks for London, 1814, as well as a museum inventory mark from 1966. These were de-accessioned by a Southern institution and were acquired with a number of other pieces from the same de-accessioning. This set of tongs also has a gothic initial monogram, which probably replaced an original script monogram that was erased. These tongs measure about 5 1/2 ...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver egg spoon or large condiment (dry mustard or horseradish?) spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Whartenby, circa 1820, give or take five years. This piece was de-accessioned recently by a Southern institution, and judging by the museum inventory number to the reverse, it was originally gifted in 1966. This piece bears a good strike of Whartenby's initials maker's mark and the eagle head mark used in conjunction with that mark. It measures abo...

Offered is a nice set of five Southern coin silver teaspoons by Louisville, Kentucky silversmith and jeweler William Kendrick, working circa 1842-73. These teaspoons were probably retailed by Kendrick, rather than manufactured by him; they bear his mark and a standard mark, as well as period engraved script monograms. These teaspoons were among a group of silver items recently de-accessioned by a Southern institution, and it looks from the inventory numbers on the back of the spoons as though ...

Offered is an early 19th Century American coin silver sugar tongs, deaccessioned from a Southern museum, but which were made by Cazenovia/Pompey, New York silversmith and clockmaker Jehiel Clark (1764 or 1781-1855), who was working in Cazenovia by about 1808 or 1810, and worked for several decades before turning over his business to his son. This piece is marked J.CLARK in a rectangular punch, with a large standing eagle mark that McGrew attributes to a New York manufacturer (Foster). This se...

This is an interesting teaspoon with some British Colonial aspects, which may or may not be American coin silver, Canadian, or something else. If anyone can solve this with a solid attribution, they will win a coin silver teaspoon or $15 off their next order - their choice! This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 19 grams. It is marked CS in a primitive punch (could be GS, but more likely CS). All in all an enigmatic piece, with a standard British-style period scrip...

Offered is a nice example of the wares of Columbus, Georgia jeweler Abram Henry Dewitt, working circa 1847-60; these spoons are a museum deaccession as noted by the affixed denotations on the back - they were purchased by the institution (apparently the Mobile Art Museum) in 1980 and are now back in circulation. These spoons are in the fiddlethread pattern and have period monograms to the reverse of the handles. They measure about 5 3/4 inches in length and weigh a total of about 38 grams. One...

Offered is a lovely early 19th Century American coin silver teaspoon by noted Chambersburg silversmith Alexander Scott, circa 1810-22 based on style.

Offered is a lovely American coin silver pie server bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Elbridge T Adell (1836–1888), who apprenticed under Albert Wakefield of Somerworth, NH, and then by the 1860s had opened his own jewelry shop in Lewiston, Maine, where he worked until his death in 1888.

Offered is a very scarce pair of early 19th Century American coin silver teaspoons by important Philadelphia silversmith John D. Germon (1751-1829), whose work is featured in many public collections but which is rarely seen in the marketplace. This pair of teaspoons dates to about the last fifteen years of Germon's active period, which seems to have ended around 1825. Each spoon is marked with Germon's maker's mark, and is engraved "CME" in period script for the original owner(s). These spoon...

Offered is an excellent American coin silver long-handled condiment spoon or ladle, done in the Prince Albert pattern and engraved with a good period script set of initials. The maker's mark or retailer's mark of William Boning on this piece is W.BONING incuse; it is one of two William Boning marks recently discovered, the other being in a rectangular punch. Neither mark appears in "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan, probably due to the rarity of pieces marked by this man. This pi...

Offered is a scarce and attractive pair of 19th Century neoclassical Italian silver spoons, by a silversmith named Castagna or Castagma, who I've not found anything about. In addition to the maker's mark, each spoon is marked with a fineness mark of 800. These spoons probably date to the second or third quarter of the 19th Century, judging by the marks and the style. They measure a bit over 5 1/2 inches in length and weigh a total of about 26 grams for the pair. Condition overall is very goo...

Offered is a nice American coin silver cream ladle marked PACKARD in moderately crude letters in a rectangular punch; this maker's mark has been attributed to Jonathan Packard (1789-1854), who worked in Northampton, MA from 1811-14, in Albany, NY from 1814-18, and in Rochester, NY from 1819-54. He met an untimely end in 1854 when he was beaten to death by three drunken men while on his way home.

This ladle measures about six inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. It is engraved wi...

Offered is a very nicely engraved American coin silver sugar shell bearing the mark of Delaware jeweler Charles F. Rudolph (working circa 1856-1908). This piece probably dates to the 1850s or 1860s.

Offered is a very nice American coin silver table spoon bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of C. H. Thompson, a little-known watchmaker and jewelry repairer and purveyor, working in Michigan from the 1850s through at least the 1880s. Although not well-documented, he was in Coldwater, MI in the 1850s, and at some point moved north, working out of Mt. Pleasant in Isabella County by the 1870s. This tablespoon would seem to date by the style of mark and monogram to the 1850s or perhaps ev...

Offered is a very nice early 19th Century American coin silver condiment spoon by noted Baltimore, MD and then Lancaster, PA silversmith George Franciscus, working circa 1800-18 in Baltimore and 1819-40 in Lancaster. This piece could have been made in Baltimore but the lack of other marks such as Baltimore assay marks, and the wear to Franciscus' maker's mark, suggest this piece was made in Lancaster between 1819 and about 1830 at the latest. This piece is initialed "MM" in period engraved scr...
