Offered is a nice example of an American coin silver school medal or 'award of merit' - this one dating to 1868, and awarded by the Trinity Sunday School of Hoboken, New Jersey, to Maggie Greaf, for "For Regular Attendance and Most Worthy Conduct." This piece measures about 1 1/4 inches across and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is good aside from some surface marks and tarnish. There appear to be no maker's marks. All in all a lovely example of this form!

Offered is a good pair of American coin silver spoons by the little-seen maker Cyrus King Wentworth (1816-47), who worked for a few years in Boston after his apprenticeship and then spent the rest of his career in Georgia, first in Milledgeville (1840-44) and then in Macon (1844-47) before his untimely death. The Georgia Museum of Art has at least one piece made by Wentworth & Co., and it is likely these spoons were made in Georgia, though they could also have been made during Wentworth's Bosto...

Offered is a nice "married" (matched up later, but not an original pair) set of two Victorian English sterling silver master salt spoons in the desirable Onslow pattern, popular in the 18th Century. Each spoon is by noted silversmith Charles Stuart Harris (whose biographical details appear below), and it appears one spoon was assayed in 1885, and the other in 1890. The hallmarks and maker's mark appear on the bowl of one spoon, and on the handle of the other, and one spoon has a gilt bowl whil...

Offered is a superb pair of American coin silver dessert spoons by Philadelphia silversmith Phineas Fries (fl. 1837-61), circa 1837-50, featuring the die-struck "rose and vine" reserves on the handles for which Mr. Fries is best known.

It is believed that this highly attractive pattern was manufactured only by the Fri...

A bit of a challenge - if you can solve the mark on this spoon and provide a verifiable reference, you'll win either $15 off your next order, or a coin silver spoon - your choice!

This teaspoon is not monogrammed, and bears a mark of G? that may or may not be an F, an H or something else. By style, it should date to between 1805 and 1830. This piece may well not be American - the proportions and drop suggest Bermuda or a similar locale. It measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weigh...

Offered is a lovely American coin silver spoon by Philadelphia maker Henry McKeen, working from about 1823 to about 1865; this piece probably dates to 1850 or earlier. It is initialed "JES" in period engraved script, and has a legible maker's mark and the Philadelphia eagle trademark, which may or may not be a manufacturer's mark used by the Wilson brothers. This teaspoon measures about 6 1/16 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal wear and no...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon that is Philadelphia in form, and bears the maker's mark of B.R in a serrated punch; this mark appears to be an initials-only mark for Benjamin Robinson (1818-44), and the letters are closely related to his B.ROBINSON mark in a serrated punch. This is an attribution, but a fairly solid one. This piece measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. It is decorated with a period engraved script "AR" monogram. This piece is in fa...

This large teaspoon is engraved with a period monogram of "SST" and one of John McMullin's maker's marks - in this case one used mostly in the first two decades of the 19th Century. This piece measures about 6 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. Condition is very good overall, with modest wear from normal use and a bit of wear t...

It has a period engraved script set of dedication monograms, and a good clear maker's mark. Condition is fair overall, with the bowl somewhat out of round (a silversmith could probably safely straighten it) and with a little tip wear but no splits or repairs. Please review all pictures.

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.

Offered is a nice American coin silver sauce or cream ladle by William and Archibald Cooper (working circa 1835-37 in Cincinnati, OH and circa 1837-46 in Louisville, KY - they also opened a branch store in Frankfort, KY circa 1842). The COOPER maker's mark on this ladle is one that was probably used by the two brothers in partnership. It is slightly rubbed but quite legible. There is no monogram or sign of erasure. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 23 grams. ...
