Dominick & Haff Old
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

Figural Wendell
click for details
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. There is no polishing wear,... Click for details

Durgin SHEAF OF WHEAT gravy ladle

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 "Corinthian" Sterling Bucket Style Cream Ladle

Gorham
click for details
Stamped with the Gorham lion, anchor, G, "Pat. 71," and "Sterling," this 5 5/8" long, 1.0 T. oz., cream ladle is a fine period piece.

The pattern is "Corinthian," which falls generally in a Moresque style with, as implied by the name, a nod toward classical Greek design.

The piece is a form commonly referred to as a "bucket ladle." The term derives from the shape of the bowl which is this case is 7/8" deep and 1 1/2" across at the top. The sidewalls are tapered and the interior is... Click for details

Gorham Colonial Solid Sterling Ice Cream Knife

Gorham Colonial Solid Sterling Ice Cream Knife
click for details
What design elements prompted Gorham to adopt the name "Colonial" for this 1885 design is something of a mystery because it does not follow after any conventional colonial motif.

The main feature of the pattern is striping that runs up about two-thirds of the handle. This is more subtle than it appears, as the surface alternates between convex and concave and suggests banding, perhaps of a naturalistic material such as bamboo. This in turn implies an Aesthetic influence, which would be... Click for details

Large Old Gorham

This item is an old, 1888 version, of Gorham Versailles marked lion, anchor, G, Sterling, and Copyrighted. It is also engraved "Norris. 1891" in script on the reverse, so its age is validated in multiple ways. The piece is a 9 1/8" long, heavy, 3.5 T. oz., large berry spoon. It is a very fine example, having excellent pattern detail that shows minimal polishing wear. The bowl is shell form and flawless, and retains its original pale champagne gold, matte finish.

The design on these two, matched spoons is commonly referred as Lily, Lily of the Valley, and Number 88 (which usually appears on the backside of this 1870 design). They are 7 1/8" long, weighty, and have the same "MHO" period monogram on the reverses. The pattern is intricate and has open work on the top of the handle. It seems to reflect similar design inspiration as Gorham's Egyptian Revival Lotus of the same period. The stylized shell-shaped bowls have a frosted finish on the interior,... Click for details
