click for details
Issued in 1880, Gorham's "Empress" incorporates a number of design elements, all evident on this 9 3/8" long, just over 3.0 T. oz., serving spoon.

The lower portions of the handle where it joins the bowl suggest an Egyptian Revival influence, while other areas point toward Renaissance Revival inspiration. In addition, the dense floral clusters employ imagery similar to Gorham's "Cluny" pattern that was designed by Antoine Heller, who was highly regarded for his Classical motifs.

Tiffany "Vine" (Grape) Sterling Silver Berry Spoon with Shell Bowl
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3446f   $415.00


click for details
An expressive and innovative design introduced early, 1872, in the history of Tiffany as a silver manufacturer, "Vine" appeared in many motifs.

This example is a 9" long, 3.3 T. oz., berry spoon in "Grapevine."

William Hood in Tiffany Silver Flatware notes that this was made with a variety of bowl forms, and the shell or fluted design on this is observationally one of the less common ones. It is finished with a bright gold wash front and backsides.

Unger Brothers "Passaic" Original Sterling Silver Butter Pick
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3443f   $52.00


click for details
Not "made up" or "hand crafted," this 6 1/4" long, relatively weighty at .7 T. oz., butter pick is a completely original piece, rather than adapted from another item as many examples of this form are.

The pattern is "Passaic," introduced by Unger Brothers in 1900.

Known for its innovative Art Nouveau designs, executed in both flatware and jewelry, the style of this goes in another direction, to the rococo. It employs a variety of scrolls, leaves, and delicate flower blossoms presented... Click for details

Duhme & Co. "Berry" Sterling Silver Sauce or Cream Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3442f   $48.00


click for details
Cincinnati, Ohio's Duhme & Co. offered numerous patterns that were teasingly close to those produced by other manufacturers, enough so that it raises the question whether these designs were copies or produced by third party firms for retailing by Duhme.

This 6 1/8" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz., sauce or cream ladle is an example of this practice. The rarely found pattern is a very close match to Whiting's "Berry," introduced in 1880.

The handle is more slender than Whiting's and also... Click for details

"Lily" is an enduringly popular, Art Nouveau pattern that essentially set the standard for this floral interpretation after its introduction in 1902.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2312   $750.00


click for details
length 9 3/4 inches, weight 5.38 Troy ounces, monogrammed "F" (reverse), a bit brighter than we'd like but still with minimal wear to the high points. Marked with Gorham trademark, star, sterling, copyrighted (twice!!), and datemark for 1886.

Even without the exquisitely engraved blade this would have been a rare find, so we're doubly pleased. Note: although this server is hollow handled, we do not believe it to be weighted.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3433f   $48.00


click for details
This 8 5/8" long, nearly 1.4 T. oz., spoon is marked only "Sterling," but the pattern is Whiting's 1880 "Antique Tip," which is itself similar to Knowles' "Antique."

It has a pointed tipt end with scroll detailing and a raised fleur-de-lis drop.

The length of a tablespoon, the oversized, wide and deep with a pointed end, bowl suggests this was designed to function as a versatile server.

While relatively plain, it is adorned with an embellished Old English "L" monogram that stands... Click for details

A weighty item at 1.0 T. oz., this 5 7/8" long teaspoon is a superb example of Wallace's figural "Irian" pattern.
