Offered is a lovely 18th Century American coin silver table spoon by noted Quaker silversmith Joseph Shoemaker, working in Philadelphia circa 1785-1829. This particular piece dates to about 1790-1800. It has a legible maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram. Interestingly, it also still has an accompanying tag from Gebelein, who not only made reproductions of colonial silver, but also sold many fine pieces of early American silver. This tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in le...

Offered is a very rare early Southern coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith Thomas McCowat, who worked in Leesburg, Virginia between about 1804-21, in Frankfort, Kentucky around 1823, and in Nashville and Jackson, Tennessee thereafter. By style, this piece should certainly date to early in McCowat's Leesburg years, probably prior to 1810. McCowat's work is quite uncommon, and this piece is a good example of his work, both for the legible maker's mark as well as for the coffin-end style...

Offered is a very good set of Kentucky coin silver teaspoons by noted Maysville silversmith and watchmaker Joseph S. Gilpin, who was established in Maysville by the 1830s. His jewelry shop was robbed there in 1842, and he was robbed again by Union troops during the war. He died sometime between 1865 and 1867.

These spoons each have a period engraved script monogram, and each has a good legible maker's mark, some slightly rubbed. The interesting thing about these particular spoons is t...

Offered is a good example of a Philadelphia coin silver spoon, in this case by noted silversmith James Peters, working circa 1813-50. This spoon is probably from the 1830s.

Offered is a very fine American coin silver teaspoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and the maker's mark of J.F.ROBINSON; this mark has been attributed both to John Foulk Robinson (1812-67), working in Wilmington, Delaware, and to his brother Jacob F. Robinson (1819-67), who started out in Delaware but who worked in Indiana in the 1850s and then to Paris, Kentucky in the 1860s. The style of this piece is classic Delaware/Pennsylvania, and so most likely made in Wilmington by one brot...

It measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 27 grams. Condition is very good overall, with modest surface wear but no tip wear and no dents, splits or repairs.

Offered is an excellent pair of American coin silver spoons by the little-known partnership of Titlow & Fry, working in Philadelphia circa 1844-48. The maker's mark used by this partnership seems to be quite rare in that no example was found for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan, though the mark is described in the book. This pair of spoons is heavy and well made; the spoons measure about 6 1/8 inches in length on average, and weigh a total of about 41 grams. In additio...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon marked FARNHAM&OWEN, for a partnership that I've been unable to pin down as to location. I doubt this piece was made in Boston, despite having been attributed to a Farnham there. This piece should date to about 1825-45 based on style, but could be a little older or younger. It features a clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram of "SJC". This spoon measures about 5 11/16 inches in length, and weighs about 13 grams. Condition is...

Offered is a good early American coin silver teaspoon marked A*E and engraved with a period script "A" owner's initial. This maker's mark has been attributed to Windham, CT silversmith Alfred Elderkin, working there circa 1780s until sometime in the first decades of the 19th Century. The maker's mark on this spoon is clear and legible. This spoon measures about 5 5/16 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is fair at best, with a fair amount of dimpling and wear to the bowl, a...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Massachusetts silversmith Earl Woodworth (1802-64), working in Hampden, MA circa 1820-25, and in Springfield, MA circa 1825-50. This spoon appears to date to Woodworth's Springfield period.

This spoon has a good strike of Woodworth's maker's mark of E.WOODWORTH in a serrated punch, with the "E" slightly rubbed but still legible. There is also a very nicely engraved period script monogram of "BR". This spoon measures ...

Offered is a mystery late 18th Century American coin silver birdback teaspoon marked I*D, quite possibly an unrecorded mark used by John David of Philadelphia, or less likely a mark used by Joshua Dorsey, also of Philadelphia. Perhaps an attribution can be made based on the pictureback decoration of the eagle, though it is quite worn. This spoon has a clear maker's mark and a period engraved block-letter monogram. It measures about 5 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 11 grams. Condition ...

Offered is an interesting late 18th Century American coin silver teaspoon with die-struck foliate scroll decoration to the back of the bowl, similar to Boston spoons a bit earlier in date. This spoon appears to date to about 1785-1800 by style, but could be a bit earlier or later. It is marked J*N in a rectangular punch, and the punch is a bit primitive, but that doesn't guarantee this is a small-town piece. I'm not sure of the maker, but John Nelson of Portsmouth, NH is a possibility, though...

Offered is a quite rare American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark of P.FERRIS&BRO, which was used during the very brief (1853 or so) partnership between Peter Ferris of Philadelphia and his brother Edward F. Ferris. This may be the only known piece with this mark. This teaspoon has a legible maker's mark as well as a period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is fairly good overall, with some small bumps...
