A turn of the 20th century design, Gorham's "Henry II" employs imagery evocative of English heraldry. The central element is an imperial looking lion's face surrounded by acanthus leaf detailing. Other elements include wings, a fish scale pattern suggestive of medieval armor on the stem of handle, and fruit or floral elements. This example is a three tine, 5 3/4" long, weighty at just over .7 T. oz., oyster or seafood cocktail fork. It has an Old English "W" monogram on the backside. The... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends

Wood & Hughes
click for details
Wood & Hughes produced a number of designs in the 1860's that fall into the "Medallion" category, of which this 6" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz. sterling silver teaspoon is one. It is commonly referred to as "Diana." It is single die struck, meaning the design appears only on the front, with the backside plain save for an engraved feathered script "CU" monogram in this instance. The condition is exceptional. Pattern detail remains crisp and sharply defined. The bowl is well-shaped and free... Click for details

Whiting

Dating from 1880, Whiting's "Persian" is a Moresque design deriving from the same sensibilities that generated Tiffany's pattern of the same name, as well as Whiting's own "Arabesque" and Gorham's "Hindostanee" among others. This example is a 7 1/2" long, 1.5 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon. It has the plum-shaped bowl with flanged rim and central rib that Whiting used across several lines of the period. Persian has a reserve area at the front of the handle which is a natural location for an... Click for details

Durgin DUBARRY(?) teaspoon

engraved "Kansas City" in bowl, length 5 7/8 inches, weight 1.30 Troy ounces, excellent condition.

Place pieces are much rarer than servers in this grand old Durgin pattern whose name is a subject of some disagreement, which leads me to believe that not many were produced.

George Sharp c. 1870 Sterling Silver Sauce Ladle

While unnamed, this c. 1870 design by George Sharp is quite similar to Gorham's "Louis XIV" and Knowles' "Emperor," both of the same period. It is double die struck, meaning the pattern appears on both sides of the piece. This example is a 6 1/2" long, 1.2 T. oz. sauce ladle. The handle is slender and elongated looking, and is joined to a 2" diameter, round shell bowl with a scalloped rim and a flat bottom.

length 5 5/8 inches, total Troy weight 6.22 ounces, superb condition, faintly gilt tines, monogrammed as shown (please see third photo).

These are particularly choice examples, extra heavy, with excellent detail and die depth. To my eye, this is one of R & B's most attractive designs. For further discussion of what makes a pattern aesthetically successful, see Design New England, November-December 2012, pp. 60-64

Gorham OLD MASTERS pie knife

with high relief cast bust of Van Dyck, length 9 inches, weight 3.24 Troy ounces, no monogram. Truly one of Antoine Heller's greatest designs, and among Gorham's most sculptural patterns.

There is a file cut (visible from side and reverse only; see fourth photo) which we've pictured in excruciating detail, and some light pitting on the blade which we've mostly polished out and probably will address a bit more, as time allows. Aside from this, the condition is excellent.

Gorham for Tiffany

Gorham's "Medallion" was the pattern of choice offered by mid 1860's Tiffany & Co. when it was simply a retailer and not a manufacturer.
