Watson
click for details
Dating from 1902, Watson's "Lily" is a markedly successful interpretation of a popular Art Nouveau floral theme. It shows intricate, high relief design detail, clearly evidencing, for example, the stamen of the blossoms and the finely stippled background surrounding the flowers and leaves. This original, 5 1/2" long, .7 T. oz., sugar spoon is a superb example of the pattern. It is absent any visible wear, and without a monogram or removal. The backside has the Mechanics pennant emblem used... Click for details

A bon bon or nut spoon in a style that was popular from the late 1800's to early 1900's, this piece is marked "Bigelow, Kennard & Co." for the Boston retailer, and "Sterling." Gorham produced a number of items of various sizes in this fashion, and that company may have been the maker of this. This piece measures 4 5/8" long and is heavy at 1.2 T. oz. It is a cast handle joined to a cast bowl, both of which sections are highly decorative. The handle features a cherubic figure playing a... Click for details

length 10 1/4 inches, weight 3.5 Troy ounces, superb original condition, monogrammed "B". This is truly a grand piece of silver. Often, fine details of die-struck patterns were embellished by hand chasing, and a light finger over the grapes and tendrils here will reveal to the touch a slight burr still left from the silversmith's tools.

Boxed Gorham "New Tipt" Sterling Pea Spoon, Mint
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Boxed Gorham
click for details
While the appellation "New Tipt" would imply a plain, unembellished, design, Gorham's pattern that bears this name does not follow this assumption.

It is quite detailed, trending toward an Egyptian Revival style. The lower portion of the handle is tubular, with beaded margins on either end. The broadened end features a pair of flanking leaves, possibly lotus, and an array of grassy elements set against a stippled ground.

This item is a rare, 8 5/8" long, 2.1 T. oz., pea or ice spoon... Click for details

Gorham No. 435 Sterling Cast Bon Bon Spoon

Model number "435" made by Gorham, a similar companion piece numbered "437" appears in the company catalog of 1892 (see image 2). Measuring 4 3/8" long and weighing just under 1.0 T. oz., this form is sometimes identified as a tea caddy spoon, but the catalog illustration establishes it as a bon bon spoon. Such pieces were higher order in the Gorham stable and extra effort was invested in their design and production. They are also generally heavier than comparable pieces in full line...

As faithful readers of our little web page will know, here is my favorite one of them all. Perhaps it was their location (in Concord) near the wilderness of New Hampshire... Click for details

Durgin
click for details
Items such of this 8 3/8" long table or serving spoon are rapidly disappearing from the open market place given the rise in the price of silver in recent years. Part of the appeal of a pattern line like 1896's "Marchel Niel" by Durgin, lies in its exceptional weight, 2.4 T. oz. in this instance, and that amount of silver has high value simply as a commodity, i.e. for "melt." Apart from its heft, Marechal Niel is an outstanding design. It offers a high relief, multi-dimensional portraiture of... Click for details

Measuring 5 5/8" long and weighing a relatively heavy 1.0 T. oz., this three tine fork is suggestive of an oyster or seafood fork, but has a different and singular tine configuration.

There are three tines, with the lower one exceptionally wide and having a beveled edge, while the other two are narrow and pointed. Two function possibilities are an escargot or a cheese fork.

The maker was Dominick and Haff and the pattern is that company's old version "Louis XIV" dating from 1888. It is... Click for details
