Fessenden "McKinley" Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
1942f   $70.00

Fessenden
click for details
Although Fessenden produced several Art Nouveau style floral designs early in the 20th century and named them after the respective flower portrayed, this perhaps chrysanthemum pattern in that series was an exception to that practice and was named "McKinley."

Measuring 7" long and weighing 1.1 T. oz., this example is a preserve or jelly spoon. The pattern is double die struck, meaning it appears on the front and back sides of the handle. It is high relief and highly detailed. The bowl is... Click for details

Large Ball, Black

Stamped "Ball, Black & Co." for the prominent mid 19th century firm, this pie server is large scaled. It measures 10" long overall and is exceptionally heavy at 3.8 T. oz. The triangular blade is 4 1/2" long and 3" at the widest.

The handle has a period "Bead" pattern front, and curiously a "Thread" pattern on the reverse. There is a fancy, feathered script "CAC" monogram on the obverse, and what appears to be a "CAP" monogram on the reverse. Such details always raise the question of... Click for details

Alvin Figural "Nuremburg" Sterling Silver Butter Pick
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
1924f   $55.00

Alvin Figural
click for details
Patented in 1903, "Nuremberg" appears to have borrowed some of the body of skills that generated such other enduring Alvin Art Nouveau designs as "Raphael," and "Old Orange Blossom," but takes those elements in a different direction.

The central feature of the pattern is a satyr's face that occupies the portion just below the reserve located on the slightly upturned end of the handle. Such imagery may be connected to 16th sculpture subjects associated with this German city.

Gorham
click for details
Marked "Patent 1861," "Beaded" is one of Gorham's earliest line patterns. It was produced for a considerable period of time and made in both coin and sterling silver. This example is marked "Coin," so dates to 1868, the year Gorham went to sterling, or earlier.

It is a large, 9 1/4" long, approximately 2.5 T. oz., ice cream server. It has an oval blade with two ribs in the bottom, notched shoulders, a beveled edge, and a gold washed upper surface. This is shallowly concave and more of a... Click for details

Durgin "Louis XV" Sterling Silver Lettuce Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
1908f   $55.00

Durgin
click for details
Issued in 1891, Durgin's "Louis XV" is a dense, rococo design that reflects quite a different, and arguably more engaging, interpretation of the motif from Whiting's much simpler pattern of the same name produced in the same year.

This example is a 7 7/8" long, relatively weighty 1.0 T. oz., lettuce fork. It originally had an overall gold finish, but much of that was polished away and now shows only partly on the handle. It remains essentially intact on the three tine serving end.

Durgin "Scroll" Large Sterling Silver Sugar Tongs
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
1898f   $75.00

Durgin
click for details
Something of a uncommon pattern, and a more intricate design than the name would imply, Durgin's 1886 "Scroll" has a repousse surface that features leaves, florals, and the namesake scrolls.

This example is a generously sized, 5" long, .9 T. oz. pair of sugar tongs. There is a fancy script "MAT" monogram on the arch. The gold washed talon grips are very finely rendered with detailed articulation on the inside as well as the outside surfaces.

The condition is excellent. Polishing wear... Click for details

Wendt
click for details
A large example, this master butter knife measures 8" long and weighs approximately 1.6 T. oz. The pattern is "Florentine," introduced in 1870 by John Wendt. A Renaissance Revival design, Florentine consists of a dense mosaic of leaves and scrolls with a shield reserve, which in this case is absent a monogram or removal. The blade is set on the vertical to the handle, meaning the handle would lie flat on a surface, with the blade fully upright.

It is in very fine condition. Pattern... Click for details

Old Dominick & Haff

Dominick & Haff produced two patterns under the name "Louis XIV," the one preceding the other by 25 years. This item is the earlier iteration, dating from 1888, and commonly referred to as "Old Style." The design is rococo, incorporating scrolling, acanthus leaves, florets, and a cluster leaves and small berries.

It is a 7 7/8" long jelly knife or server. D&H tended toward weighty pieces, and that is decidedly the case with this which tops out at nearly 2.4 T. oz. This extravagant use of... Click for details
