The term coin silver usually refers to the silver flatware and hollow-ware made before 1870. The silver content is less than that of sterling silver which is 92.5% silver; the content of coin silver is 90%.

This wonderful coin silver sauce/cream ladle is circa 1780. The handle as well as the under-side of the bowl is delicately etched with a geometric floral motif. There is an attached hook on the underside of the handle so it can be suspended on the side of its server. It is not marked coin but is stamped twice "CH" in a square. This could be Christopher Hughes, Baltimore, MD, originally from Ireland, who worked from 1771-1790; or Charles Hall, Lancaster, PA, who worked from 1755-1780. On the under-side of the handle are faintly engraved the names of several individuals and the dates 1847 and 1854. These would have been added later if the actual maker is Hughes or Hall. A super piece if late 1700's or mid 1800's. The ladle measures 7 1/4" in length and the bowl is 2 1/4" across with pouring lip. Wonderful vintage condition with very minor bruising to the bowl. It weighs 1.5 ounces.
