3 Pieces Farrington & Hunnewell
click for details
Not formally named, the pattern on these three pieces is an "Oak and Acorn" motif that was produced by Boston's Farrington & Hunnewell. It dates c. 1865.

It is an engaging, double die struck (meaning it appears on both sides of the handle) design, singular for its time, and considerably more detailed than the common patterns of the period, such as "Olive" and its variants.

It was produced over a period of time that straddled the switch from a coin to a sterling silver standard, with... Click for details

Sharp for Tiffany

Marked with both Philadelphia's George Sharp's "double lion and S" and "Patent" marks as well as "Tiffany & Co.," this salad serving fork and spoon have a double provenance that bespeaks the finest of mid 19th century silver manufacturing and retailing. Curiously, they are not stamped "Sterling," which standard Tiffany typically required in the 1860's from which they date, so they are possibly coin silver rather than sterling.

They are exceptionally large items, with the fork measuring 10... Click for details
