Silver : Sterling : Smalls

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver

marked only "sterling 4," these are probably Whiting or Gorham, circa 1868. They are of exceptional quality and workmanship, each arm comprising a grapevine (complete with added "age" marks!) with two applied grape leafs and a dangling cluster of grapes. A splendid example of Victoriana, and similar in theme to cheese scoops with figural mice, as their form defines their function.

Length 7 5/8 inches, weight 3.82 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.

4041f   This item is currently being auctioned


click for details
Issued in 1878, Gorham's fabulously designed "Narragansett" pattern was developed using models from sea life found in the Rhode Island bay of this name.

The positive reception to the line apparently inspired numerous other kindred but less elaborate items, of which this napkin ring is an example (such pieces are frequently facilely identified as "Narragansett" although not actually so).

Measuring 1 3/4" wide, 2" in diameter, and weighing 1.2 T. oz., the raised surface portrays a variety of... Click for details

ABOUT: I love sterling silver and this is a lovely little offering from the Victorian era / late 1800s made by Gorham Mfg. Co. in an acid etched floral aesthetic design. It is a perfume flask, I believe it was meant to be carried in a purse or pouch as it does not have a loop for a chatelaine chain. I poured water in it to make sure it has no leaks. I also discovered when I was emptying the water out that they shaped it so that it lets the liquid out a few drops at a time (instead of... Click for details

This example of late Victorian grape shears or, as period catalogues identify them, scissors, are of a quality that set the bar for such pieces. They excel in terms of design, manufacture, and material.

The first factor that stands out is that they are made of solid sterling silver. Grape shears typically have steel cutters, while these are clearly marked on the backside of the lower blade "Howard & Co." and "Sterling," which applies to the entire piece.

They measure 6 7/8" long and... Click for details
