20170817-01   $135.00

Offered is a lovely and quite rare example of the silverwork of Bernard Hendel, better known as a clockmaker and the least known of the Hendel brothers. Bernard worked from about 1811 to 1844, and a number of clocks bearing his name alone or in conjunction with his brother Jacob are known. However, there is almost no silver bearing his name. This is only the second spoon I've come across by Bernard Hendel, and it is a good one. By style it should date to about 1825, but could be a little... Click for details

Measuring 5 3/4" long and weighing approximately 1.0 T. oz. combined, this matched pair of teaspoons are stamped "I or J Lee" in script lettering, which mark Belden in "Marks of American Silversmiths," citing two sources, identifies as "possibly that of a Middletown, Conn., silversmith working ca. 1790-1800."

The style of this suggests the earlier end of that date range.

They have rounded ends, with very slight beveling on the backsides. The fronts are engraved in a fancy script... Click for details

Sources indicate that Charles C. Shaver and Henry S. Brown, the makers of this 6 1/2" long, 1.0 T. oz., ladle formed their partnership while both of them were working for Maynard & Taylor, and whose silver portion of that business they bought out to establish their own firm in 1856.

The partnership only lasted two years as Shaver contracted typhoid fever and sold out to Brown, whose interest he bought back in 1863 after recovering from his illness. All this history indicates the "Brown &... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3207f   $70.00

A Renaissance Revival design dating from 1870, John Wendt's "Florentine" is a dense pattern that shows Moorish influences.

This example is a 6 1/8" long, .8 T. oz., sugar, or perhaps small preserve, spoon with two characteristics that set it apart.

One is the flange rim, elaborately shaped bowl with intricate engraving set against a satin matte, gold wash (front and back sides) ground.

The style of this 6 1/8" long, .8 T. oz., early pastry, or possibly pickle, fork places it c. 1865.

It is marked "Warner," and "Coin," for Baltimore's Andrew Ellicott Warner, Jr., whose working dates were 1864-93 according to the Baltimore Museum of Art reference "Maryland Silver," so this is an example of his earliest production.

The design is suggestive of work particularly popular in Philadelphia at the time. It has a twisted central shank leading to a flat, scalloped edge, upper... Click for details

Offered is a lovely example of the work of New York City silversmith Samuel Bowne (1778-1817), working circa 1798 to his death in 1817. Mr. Bowne apparently was not all that successful as a silversmith, as he went bankrupt in 1802 and only recovered after several years. His work, however, is lovely and this piece is a good example. This teaspoon bears a very good strike of Bowne's maker's mark and is engraved with a period script monogram within an ovoid reserve. This piece measures about 5... Click for details

Offered is a very rare example of the work of Hanover, Pennsylvania clockmaker and silversmith Jacob Hostetter, Sr., working circa 1788-1797. While a number of clocks by Hostetter are known, this is the example of his work as a silversmith that I have ever seen. It has a slightly chattered but legible maker's mark and also features a period engraved script monogram. The most interesting feature of this piece is the unique die-struck shell decoration surmounting a row of tulip blooms. This... Click for details

E. Borhek, Philadelphia, "Reverse Tipt" Coin Silver Teaspoon
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3195f   $24.00

In her benchmark work on Philadelphia silversmiths, Catherine Hollan identifies "E. Borhek," the mark on this 5 11/16" long, .5 T. oz., as Edward, 1806-87. She notes that 1835-37, he was known as "Borhex."

In his later years he operated as an optician and spectacle maker, although as this spoon attests, silver was his stock in trade in earlier years.

This is a well-crafted piece, which a broad handle end with a subtly tipt backside, a line drop on the heel, and high, angular shoulders... Click for details
