A truly exotic pattern, Tiffany's "Lap Over Edge" is really a family of designs with almost endless variations.

It was offered as a plain line, with acid etched motifs, and finally in mixed metals.

This example, a long handle, 8 3/8", nearly 1.1 T. oz., olive spoon, features a bird aloft an array of grasses that rise up along the length of the slender handle.

height 2; top diameter 1 3/4 inches, weight 2.4 Troy ounces, no monogram, marked as shown in third enlargement, some very minor insults to foot but fine overall condition.

As mentioned elsewhere on these pages, Porter's work is of inconsistent quality. Here, the soldering is a bit sloppy and the hammering is rather random. So let's just consider that part of the charm, if we may.

This 7 1/4" long, 1.0 T. oz., circa 1875, cream ladle documents the evolution of American silver craft into a high art form as the 19th century progressed.

The motif is a lotus blossom, fully developed in the 1 5/8" diameter, 1" deep, bowl, complimented by a triplet of lotus leaves surmounting the handle.

That simple descriptive, however, scarcely encompasses the delicacy and subtlety with which the piece is imbued.

The blossom, for example, has fully articulated petals with sawtooth... Click for details
