They are identical save that one is engraved "Mary" in script set sideways on the handle front, and the other "Winifred," likely presented to two sisters.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3786f   $46.00

An elaborate leaf, bead, and stylized shell design, Wallace's "Sappho" bespeaks the artistry of the ancient poet from whom the pattern takes its name.

This 6 7/8" long, quite heavy at nearly 1.4 T. oz., tea or dessert size fork may have been used as a youth piece, given the engaging inscription, which reads in fine script lettering, "To Carrie" on the front, and "From Mother Dec. 4th 98." on the reverse.

Wendell "Ariel" Cherub Figure Sterling Silver Sauce or Gravy Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3776f   $85.00


click for details
A late 19th century design produced by the Chicago silver firm of Wendell Manufacturing Company, "Ariel" is a highly expressive design.

The central element is a cherubic-looking figure set against a dense, decorative background. It is strongly reminiscent of Dominick & Haff's "Labors of Cupid," which it predates by five years, 1895 vs. 1900.

It is a multi-motif line, meaning the figural representation varies between different pieces.

This example is a 6 1/4" long, heavy, 1.7 T. oz.... Click for details

Wood & Hughes "Zephyr" Solid Sterling Silver Small Cake Saw
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3775f   $120.00


click for details
Small, or even diminutive, for a cake saw, and charmingly so, this piece measures 8 11/16" long and weighs 1.3 T. oz.

It has a long, relatively narrow, blade, with a sawtooth upper edge, which is the requisite component for the form.

The pattern is Wood & Hughes' 1870s "Zephyr," which is a Renaissance Revival or Moorish inspired design. Indeed, the blade front on this is engraved in an arabesque pattern, which has Islamic style origins.

There is a fancy Old English "J" monogram... Click for details

sea creatures and granulated "sand" decoration, length 6 1/4 inches, weight 1.73 Troy ounces, excellent original condition, no monogram.

One factor which ultimately contributed to the demise of his firm was that George Shiebler's best designs were difficult to execute and costly to produce. Not many of these forks were made, and the surviving examples vary in quality and condition.

This is the finest one we've ever had the privilege to offer. The gilt tines are uniform in color,... Click for details

Issued at the turn of the 20th century, Tiffany's "Florentine" takes its name from the city whose identity is synonymous with the Italian Renaissance, and its decorative elements mirror that style period.

The use to which this 5 7/8" long, heavy at 1.1 T. oz., teaspoon was put is without question as the handle is engraved "Baby" in script.

In good overall condition, retaining clear pattern detail and without damage, it does show overall wear, particular so in the bowl which has some... Click for details
