Julius Hollister, whose name along with the words "Pure Coin" appears on the backside of this 5 3/4" long, .6 T. oz., fork, began working in Hartford, Connecticut in 1841, then relocated to Oswego, New York, with a short time in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

While Hollister was of no particular distinction, this pickle or early pastry fork is an unusual form in that it has four tines, the lowest one of which is widened. Most examples of such mid 19th century pieces have three tines.

3535f   On Hold


click for details
Dating from the mid 19th century, and tracing to the American Midwest, this 7 1/8" long, 1.0 T. oz., master butter knife shows exceptional refinement.

The blade and handle both have sculpted margins and are set at a right angle to one another. The stem of the handle is narrow and blocky, while the blade is thick where it joins the handle. This lends the piece strength at a stress point, and adds an architectural design component.

Both sides of the blade are engraved in a matching,... Click for details

Old Friends

This 7 3/8" long, T. oz., 1840s, "Reverse Tipt" 1.0 T. oz., dessert or place spoon tells a story that such items rarely do.
