Watson "Govenor Dummer" Sterling Silver Berry Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2796f   $48.00

Watson
click for details
Derivative of the early 20th century Colonial Revival movement in design, the pattern on this 8 1/4" long, 2.1 T. oz., small berry, aka casserole, spoon is in fact named after a Colonial period governor of Massachusetts, William Dummer (1677-1761).

Issued in 1925, it is markedly similar to Towle's popular "Mary Chilton" which was introduced a decade earlier in 1912.

Sharing the same diamond-shaped handle, Watson's iteration is more elaborated than Towle's. Rather than plain, the handle... Click for details

Wood & Hughes Aesthethic Sterling Silver Pickle Fork
click for details
Not a full flatware line, this singularly designed 6 1/4" long, .9 T. oz., pickle fork made by Wood & Hughes dates circa 1880.

The pattern is clearly rooted in Aesthetic sensibilities, with a marine theme. There are two shell motifs, one in the heel of the central of three tines, and one at the tip of the handle.

Radiating lines fan out from the broad, angular, handle shoulders, and meet a series of ripples that evoke waves, which probably not without coincidence, resemble Tiffany's... Click for details

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

One of Durgin's earliest line patterns, this design features a charming bouquet of flowers, leaves, and grasses tied in a bow. Although documentation for it is scant, "Spray" is an accepted name.

These six forks are in a "Tipt" design that traces to the earliest years of silver crafting, when an individual smith would have hand hammered the end of a handle to create this simple, decorative element that defines the pattern.

An enduring motif, it was brought forward into the realm of manufactured silver, as evidenced by these six, matching, 7 1/16" long, 6.5 T. oz. the lot, place forks made by Gorham. This size could have been used for tea, dessert or lunch.

Whiting

Whiting's and Gorham's Lotus are nearly twin patterns, although there are subtle differences. The primary distinguishing feature is the number of lotus fronds in the design, Gorham having three and Whiting, as with this piece, having five.

They are both products of the c. 1870 Egyptian Revival movement and are patterns that have never lost appeal.

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
