Bigelow, Kennard Cast

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 8 1/2 inches, monogrammed "Cora 1900," fine condition, weight 3.39 Troy ounces, retailed by R. Mockford of Trumansburg, NY.

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.

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...

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

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.

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
