Re: LC Bailey Silver Spoon- Coin Silver?

I can offer some advice that may help. If it is plated rather than solid silver, it will not be bendy or springy but rather stiff. Also, the piece will almost certainly have lost plating in places that get the most wear such as the bottom of the bowl, the tip of the bowl and the edges. The under met...

Re: German? Dognose Rattail spoon

That's all I have at the moment. After Thursday I'll share my collection of 18th-century English Dinner knives and Dutch Birth Spoons. I don't have any pictures on hand though. I think that's all of my 17th-century pieces though except for a Nuremberg cup I have a coming. My collection is fairly hea...

John Aldwinckle & Thomas Slater London 1892 Figural Serving Spoon Not that old of a spoon but I posted this because I was hoping someone might be able to confirm a theory. I believe this was part of a set of 4 serving pieces with each depicting a different female representing one of the 4 season...

Re: London 1837 William IV Sterling & Ox Blood Coral Handle Fork

Thanks, Phil, I believe your right with William Forrester. I think the piece is designed to be used, possibly an early lemon fork? I don't know when lemon forks first started showing up though.

French Silver Ebony & Steel Dinner Fork c.1730's There are no markings but I have seen similar steel forks attributed to France from around 1730 but I could be wrong. The Ferrule and caps are silver, the wood ebony, and tines steel. I have 3 of these but this is the only one of the set that is c...

18th century William Hollingshead Philadelphia Shell Back Spoon

William Hollingshead Philadelphia Shell Back Spoon The bowl of the spoon has seen better days. William Hollingshead was born in NJ in 1728 and died in Bucks PA in 1808. He worked as a silversmith in Philadelphia from 1754 to 1785. This spoon could date from any point within that period. https://i.po...

Augsburg 1744 Spoon

Augsburg 1744 Spoon The Spoon is dated 1744 but it is engraved later "Amanda Gol 1763". I am not sure of the maker though. It appears to be marked ID but the makers die appears to have been worn and slightly broken when he used it so it's not clearly legible. https://i.postimg.cc/QFt6RbGF/...

1705 Newcastle Francis Batty II Hanovarian Rattail Spoon In the pictures, you cannot make out the maker mark as it is very light. But in person, you can see it is the mark of Francis Batty the 2nd. I'm not quite sure how it makes sense though as I don't think he had a mark until 1706 but someone wit...
