Alvin "Edward VII" Large & Heavy Sterling Silver Cold Meat Fork

Alvin
click for details
A "noble" pattern both in theme and presentation, and not so readily found, Alvin's 1899 "Edward VII is nearly without peer in the realm of silver patterns. The design is singular. The only near match is Whiting's "Heraldic," while a weak equivalent is Baker-Manchester's "Spartan."

All three feature a knight's helmet at the handle end, which is also embellished with scrolling acanthus leaves. Alvin's is the most robust of the three iterations, as is evidenced by the scale of this serving... Click for details

This 6 5/16" long, just under .8 T. oz. butter pick is a fully authentic, as produced by the manufacturer, and not made up from another item, as many examples of this form are.

In this instance there is a script "LNP" monogram set in the shield shaped... Click for details

Gorham Old

Named after the Florentine family whose identity was essentially synonymous with the Italian Renaissance, Gorham's 1880 version of "Medici" is a dense figural design.

This example is a 7" long, weighty, 2.1 T. oz., gravy ladle.

It is in remarkably fine condition, free of the softening of detail that often affects the low relief structure of this multi-motif pattern. The central figure on this piece is a standing woman dressed in festooned period garb, with one leg fully exposed from the... Click for details

Hamilton & Diesinger Elaborate Victorian Sterling Serving Fork

A late 19th century Philadelphia partnership, with principals also connected with another Philadelphia firm, Davis & Galt, Hamilton & Diesinger produced numerous, apparently unnamed, flatware patterns.

The quality of the company's work is always to a high standard, and that is the case with this 8 1/8" long, good weight at 1.8 T. oz., serving fork. With four, slender tines, the outer two of which are splayed, it is probably a beef fork.

The pattern is rococo in style, and immensely... Click for details

The Howard Sterling Company of Providence, Rhode Island is to be distinguished from Howard & Company of New York, both operating in the late 19th to early 20th centuries.

Many of Howard's lines are identified with successor firms Roger Williams Silver and ultimately Mount Vernon, and that is the case with "Josephine," the pattern on this 10 3/8" long, 3.2 T. oz., platter, stuffing, or basting spoon.

Presumably named after Napoleon's empress consort, the design features bold acanthus... Click for details
