11 coin silver King's banquet sized dinner forks
click for details
Gale & Mosely, New York circa 1830, double struck-- for the uninitiated, this means the pattern is both front and back, length just shy of 8 1/2 inches, some very slight tine wear on a few (we've pictured the worst one in enlargement number four) but superb overall condition, weight 30.74 Troy ounces (!!) or 2.79 each on average, no monogram.

One would be hard-pressed indeed to find a better set of dinner forks.

There are varying attributions for the "Parkman" stamp that appears on the backside of this 9" long, 1.8 T. oz. coin silver tablespoon. Assigned by Winterthur as an alternate mark for Thomas Parkman born about 1767 in Hartford, and working there until 1793, then Boston, next followed by Hudson, New York about 1795, possibly in association with a group of Quakers. A reliable online source opines this mark may be that for Charles Parkman, 1785-1834, but the c. 1790 style of this is too early for... Click for details

Mug with uniquely American agricultural motif

In 1825, the Erie Canal opened, sending to NYC and beyond the agricultural riches of Ohio and ultimately the entire midwest. For 10 years -- from 1825-35 -- this cornucopia was celebrated in the arts, including the art of silvermaking. The basket-of-flowers and sheaf-of-wheat flatware patterns are examples; so too is this mug with its band of farm produce and equipment -- corn-filled wagon, barn, windmill, beehives, farm house, corn crib, scythe, rake, and a sheaf-of-wheat design repeated 10...
