Unknown Coin Silver 8.5" Spoon

Postby hpidaves » Mon Oct 14, 2019 9:34 pm

Here is an unknown coin silver 8 1/2" serving spoon, the only mark is "COIN" on the reverse behind the bowl. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi, your lovely piece is in the Crete pattern by Knowles & Ladd of Rhode Island c1864-1875. Hope that helps

Thank you so much -- how on earth did you know that? There are no markings except for "COIN".

Hi again. Sorry for the delayed response. There is a site, sterlingsilverfashions. I knew roughly what era it was from and checked the patterns for the most likely makers until I found yours. Very useful free site for American silver

There are Knowles patterns on this site as well. Click on the Knowles link in American marks.

Sorry no disrespect to 925-1000. It's the best. I just use the other site for American flatware patterns 1st because it undeniably has the largest selection.
