Antique American Coin Silver Place Flatware

Repoussι • Manufacturer • Holloware • Flatware • Miscellaneous • Coin Silver • Foreign • Indexes

This page will feature Coin Silver Place Flatware mostly made prior to 1870 including Knives, Forks and Spoons. Silver Spoons were made in fairly large quantities and make up by far the greatest amount of surviving flatware of this period. Silver Forks are occasionally seen that date from the first quarter of the 19th century but it is not until the later 1840's with the introduction of die-stamped patterns that significant numbers were made and survived. Silver Knives are even rarer than the forks; mother-of-pearl and agate handled examples are sometimes found and die-stamped examples from the 1840's and later are found with both hollow and flat handles and silver blades (some steel bladed examples were made but are extremely rare survivals). Links to the marks and/or interesting decorative details have been provided for some pieces. For later pieces please check our Place Flatware.

Some pieces on this page will have links to their marks and/or decoration. A piece may be marked On Hold, Layaway, or Sold to designate its lack of availability. Please use the inventory number during correspondence to help us identify a particular item. To examine our latest additions please check out our New Listings.
