A 6 7/16" long, .9 T. oz. piece, this sugar spoon has a broad scallop shell bowl with high shoulders leading to a narrow handle that broadens into an oval, tipped end.

It is marked "H.I. Sawyer," for Henderson Inches Sawyer, who worked in New York City 1835-45, then Hartford, Connecticut, 1845-58.

It also carries a "lion" pseudo hallmark that McGrew identifies in his benchmark work on marks as characteristic of the Hartford area, so this item likely traces to Sawyer's (earlier based on... Click for details

Farrington & Hunnewell
click for details
A favorite theme among American silver manufacturers of the 19th century, especially the 1850-75 period, there are many extant expressions of the "Grape" motif.

Few equal, and none exceeds, the design on this 7" long, approximately 1.3 T. oz., coin silver preserve spoon made by Boston's Farrington & Hunnewell. The portraiture is artful, realistic and balanced. While decorative, it is constrained, resulting in a design that would have been appealing even to the most decorous of Victorian...

After 1846, Albert continued to work as a silversmith, but moved his shop to Bangor and worked there until about 1880. This piece was almost certainly made during Albert's Portland years, and the mark of TITCOMB in a serrated punch could have been used by him... Click for details

Offered is a nice early pair of American coin silver sugar tongs with acorn grips, bearing the obliterated but still legible maker's mark of William Hart, who may have been working as a silversmith in Baltimore between 1810 and 1816, and who worked briefly in Philadelphia thereafter as a silversmith, before selling all of his stock to Rene L. Gravelle. By style these tongs could have been made in either locale. They measure about 6 inches in length and weigh about 30 grams. Condition is fair,... Click for details

Gorham
click for details
Dating c. 1860, "Bust" is one of those patterns that helped created what might be called Gorham's first golden age of design.

The defining feature of the line is a cast, in most instances female, "bust" that surmounts the slender, square handle.

A product of the Classical Revival movement of the period, the figure sits atop a pedestal base, much as she might be presented in a museum or salon, or in a wall niche in an athenaeum.

This piece is a 5 7/8" long, not quite 1.0 T. oz., coin... Click for details

J.E. Caldwell, Philadelphia, Engraved Coin Silver Preserve Spoon

Elegant on several counts, this 7" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon traces to Philadelphia. It is stamped "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for that City's carriage trade firm, but was likely made by one of several major local manufacturers.

Its features bespeak its origins, and quite impressively so. It has a twisted stem in the central portion of the handle, suggesting a date from the mid 1860s when this detail was popular.

The handle end is broad, with a slightly tipt... Click for details
