Old Friends  
2708f   $95.00


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

Dating from the 1860s and made by New York's John Polhamus, whose "J*P" mark appears on the backside, this 6 7/8" long, 1.3 T. oz., fork is also stamped "Tiffany & Co.," which retailed a good deal of Polhamus' silver before it instituted its own production in 1868.

A place piece, it is a length that is commonly identified as for tea or dessert. The pattern is "French Thread," aka... Click for details

Durgin "New Art" Lily Large Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2687f   $395.00

Arguably the line by which all other Art Nouveau floral designs are measured, Durgin's 1900 "New Art" embodies the exuberance, lushness, and freedom of expression that characterizes this style mode.

The scale of pieces in this pattern is large, as evidenced by the fact that this 8 3/4" long, very heavy at 4.7 T. oz., piece is identified as a preserve spoon, when it is actually the size of a typical berry spoon.

Multi-motif, the portraiture on this is lily. The blossoms and leaves fold... Click for details
