Rare Tennessee coin silver coffee pot, marked "W. H. Calhoun Tenn." with three pseudohallmarks (William H. Calhoun, Nashville, Tennessee, working 1839-1865, refer to Caldwell’s Tennessee Silversmiths, pp. 49-53). Engraved in one of the cartouche shields, "To Mrs H. Bruner 1865". The engraving would be a later date, as Calhoun’s mark on the coffee pot is associated with his work in the 1850s. Elaborate floral and leaf repousse engraving, branch design handle, flower finial. Condition – excellent, missing ivory insulators for handle. 12 3/8" height, approx. 35 oz troy. Circa 1855. Comment – the coffee pot form marked by a Tennessee silversmith is very rare, as no other documented examples are known.
