Mint Whiting

"Ivy" is a pattern that is associated with Whiting, but actually originated with New York's Henry Hebbard. This 6" long, 1.3 T. oz., sugar sifter is marked only "Pat. 1866" and "Sterling," so may trace to either maker.

The pattern, "Ivy," incorporates ivy leaf detailing both singly and in a repeating border pattern. The overall sense of the design evokes John Polhamus' "Diamond" from the same period. This is not surprising given that Hebbard and Polhamus were in partnership for a number... Click for details

Gorham
click for details
Measuring 10 1/4" long and weighing a substantial 4.7 T. oz., this piece is most likely an oyster ladle rather than the larger yet full size soup.

In today's environment the distinction may be inconsequential. Indeed, some of the massive serving pieces of the 19th century may be overly large for contemporary tables, making this size more utilitarian.

The pattern is Gorham's late 19th century "Maryland." It is an elaborate design that incorporates acanthus leaves, rose blossoms and... Click for details
