Choice Westervelt

Made by John L. Westervelt of Newburgh, NY and stamped with the retail mark of "Champney & Smitten" of Brooklyn, NY, this sterling silver berry spoon measures 8 1/2" long and weighs approximately 2.1 T. oz. The pattern is "Ivy," a mid 19th century design that was one of Westervelt's most successful. It is double die struck, meaning the design appears on both sides of the handle. It incorporates carefully articulated ivy set against a somewhat Gothic inspired ground. The bowl is an elongated... Click for details

Gorham No. 435 Sterling Cast Bon Bon Spoon
click for details
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...

length 9 5/8 inches, weight 4.86 Troy ounces, monogrammed "M" (obverse, Old English), gilt tines with a bit of table wear to gold wash on underside but excellent overall condition.

Most American silver manufacturers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries offered some variant of the Chrysanthemum pattern. 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 "Marechal Niel" Sterling Tablespoon

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

Dominick & Haff Old

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

Gorham

There is lack of complete certainty on the name of this 1870's Gorham pattern classified in the Egyptian Revival mode, but it is generally and reliably identified as "Hindoo."

It has a tubular stem and diamond prism handle end with banded borders. It is essentially Gorham's "Isis" without the winged snake figure.

The bowl on this large, 13 1/2" long, heavy, 6.4 T. oz., soup ladle has a central vee made up of two flanking lobes with rounded shoulders. This is again the form that was... Click for details

Figural Wendell

Wendell's late 19th century "Ariel" features a cherubic-looking figure set against a dense, decorative background. It is highly reminiscent of Dominick & Haff's "Labors of Cupid," which it predates by five years, 1895 vs. 1900. This example is a 6 1/4" long, heavy, 1.7 T. oz. sauce ladle. The 1 3/4" diameter, 5/8" deep, bowl has flanged shoulders and a scalloped and patterned outer border. This is in immaculate condition and without a monogram or removal.

length 7 1/4 inches, weight 2.69 oz. Troy, monogrammed as shown in photo number three, retailed by Daniel Low, some very minor stains on bowl but excellent overall condition.

Don't get me wrong, we love a nice 1820's piece of S.O.W. ever so much, but you'll never see this amount of detail in a sheaf which some brawny silversmith made by whacking a swage with a big hammer.

Gorham's Byzantine was an early, mid 1860's, pattern that had a double life. The pattern is as illustrated and has vaguely Moorish elements of tracery, scrolling, and even stylized papyrus. It was later appropriated to serve as the ground for Gorham's "Hound," which was this pattern with an applied cast hound literally screwed to the handle. This example is a large, 8 7/8" long, heavy, 3.0 T. oz., berry spoon. It has a ribbed bowl with notched edges and flanged shoulders. This retains a... Click for details
