Watson Cast "Cherub" Heart Shaped Bowl Sterling Silver Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3489f   $42.00


click for details
Produced by Watson, this version of "Cherub," while similar and perhaps a variant, is to be distinguished from the company's full line pattern with this name (see Old Friends item 2714f for comparison).

The figure on this 4 1/4" long, unusually heavy at nearly .5 T. oz., spoon appears to be cast rather than die struck, and possesses much more dimension and detail than the line design.

Indeed, the youthful image evinces an angelic, innocent, and ethereal quality, suggesting she or he is not... Click for details

Old Friends  
3476f   $375.00

Gorham produced a great array of items in various forms either side of 1900 in a line which the company designated with an "H" number.

Measuring a generous 11 3/8" long and weighing a substantial 4.0 T. oz., this fish slice is fully marked for London, 1801-02, sterling silver, and maker Thomas Freeth (TF).

It is something of a utilitarian item with a straightforward design. The handle pattern is essentially "Old English," with a rounded and down turned end, but without a tipt backside. It has a "C.A.G." monogram on the front, with a subtle dip in the surface below this which may be an old monogram removal, or just a slight... Click for details

A 5 5/8" long, .7 T. oz., item, this spoon was made by A.F. Towle (later Lunt), as indicated by the "TS" emblem imprinted on the reverse, along with the word "Sterling."

Based on the 1899 "Wentworth" pattern, it includes an image of a plump, completely baby-like, winged cherub draped in a garland of roses, all set in very high relief that rises off the handle sculptural-like.

The figure is surrounded by beading, below which are more fully developed rose blossoms.

The handle backside is... Click for details

Issued in 1880, Gorham's "Empress" incorporates a number of design elements, all evident on this 9 3/8" long, just over 3.0 T. oz., serving spoon.

The lower portions of the handle where it joins the bowl suggest an Egyptian Revival influence, while other areas point toward Renaissance Revival inspiration. In addition, the dense floral clusters employ imagery similar to Gorham's "Cluny" pattern that was designed by Antoine Heller, who was highly regarded for his Classical motifs.

Old Friends  
3446f   $415.00

This example is a 9" long, 3.3 T. oz., berry spoon in "Grapevine."

William Hood in Tiffany Silver Flatware notes that this was made with a variety of bowl forms, and the shell or fluted design on this is observationally one of the less common ones. It is finished with a bright gold wash front and backsides.

Unger Brothers "Passaic" Original Sterling Silver Butter Pick
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3443f   $52.00


click for details
Not "made up" or "hand crafted," this 6 1/4" long, relatively weighty at .7 T. oz., butter pick is a completely original piece, rather than adapted from another item as many examples of this form are.

The pattern is "Passaic," introduced by Unger Brothers in 1900.

Known for its innovative Art Nouveau designs, executed in both flatware and jewelry, the style of this goes in another direction, to the rococo. It employs a variety of scrolls, leaves, and delicate flower blossoms presented... Click for details

Duhme & Co. "Berry" Sterling Silver Sauce or Cream Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3442f   $48.00


click for details
Cincinnati, Ohio's Duhme & Co. offered numerous patterns that were teasingly close to those produced by other manufacturers, enough so that it raises the question whether these designs were copies or produced by third party firms for retailing by Duhme.

This 6 1/8" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz., sauce or cream ladle is an example of this practice. The rarely found pattern is a very close match to Whiting's "Berry," introduced in 1880.

The handle is more slender than Whiting's and also... Click for details

"Lily" is an enduringly popular, Art Nouveau pattern that essentially set the standard for this floral interpretation after its introduction in 1902.

Absent noticeable polishing wear, this pair show the design to full advantage, retaining all the fine flower and leaf elements for which the line is known, as well... Click for details

Gorham MEDICI, OLD hooded aspargus server
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2312   $750.00


click for details
length 9 3/4 inches, weight 5.38 Troy ounces, monogrammed "F" (reverse), a bit brighter than we'd like but still with minimal wear to the high points. Marked with Gorham trademark, star, sterling, copyrighted (twice!!), and datemark for 1886.

Even without the exquisitely engraved blade this would have been a rare find, so we're doubly pleased. Note: although this server is hollow handled, we do not believe it to be weighted.
