Old Friends  
2790f   $120.00

Whiting
click for details
A pattern identified in both the singular and plural, the origins of Whiting's "Rose(s) & Scroll(s)" is encased in some mystery. It does not show up in standard references, so its story is vague.

Dating from about 1890, it expresses both Aesthetic and Art Nouveau sensibilities.

Stylized rose blossoms appear to float amid a cloud-like setting framed by the scrolls. The design reflects a wispy and ethereal quality, with the imagery seeming to be disembodied from any real world... Click for details

This example is a 6 3/8" long, just over .7 T. oz., sugar spoon. It has an elongated, scallop shell form bowl that retains scant traces of an... Click for details
