Rare, Original Towle

A specialized form, "ideal" olive spoons have open bowls with double pronged tips, which is precisely the style of this long, 8 1/8", 1.0 T. oz., example in Towle's "Old Colonial."

Alvin
click for details
A "noble" pattern both in theme and presentation, and not so readily found, Alvin's 1899 "Edward VII is nearly without peer in the realm of silver patterns. The design is singular. The only near match is Whiting's "Heraldic," while a weak equivalent is Baker-Manchester's "Spartan."

All three feature a knight's helmet at the handle end, which is also embellished with scrolling acanthus leaves. Alvin's is the most robust of the three iterations, as is evidenced by the scale of this serving... Click for details

Howard

The Howard Sterling Company of Providence, Rhode Island is to be distinguished from Howard & Company of New York, both operating in the late 19th to early 20th centuries.

Many of Howard's lines are identified with successor firms Roger Williams Silver and ultimately Mount Vernon, and that is the case with "Josephine," the pattern on this 10 3/8" long, 3.2 T. oz., platter, stuffing, or basting spoon.

Presumably named after Napoleon's empress consort, the design features bold acanthus... Click for details

Pair Schulz & Fischer, San Francisco,

While many 19th century San Francisco flatware designs appear to be derivative of Eastern manufacturers, and some are all but outright copies, "Templar" aka "Five Star" by Schulz & Fischer is original to that company.

Dating from 1883, it reflects Victorian pedigree combined with some Aesthetic, i.e. Eastlake, sensibilities.

It has a garland of flowers at the top of the handle, with an open space below this that in this instance is monogrammed "CNB" in fine script. The lower two thirds... Click for details
