Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2283   $320.00


click for details
length 5 5/8 inches, total Troy weight 7.10 ounces, fine condition, monogrammed as shown in third enlargement.

For those of you who wonder what that unusual symbol between the Whiting trademark and "sterling" might mean, we suspect that is a letter h inside a circle, meaning 'heavy,' since these weigh a bit more than the average Lily butter spreader.

Offered is a fine late 17th Century or very early 18th Century trefid table spoon bearing the maker's mark "IS" struck four times as the only mark.

This mark appears in Figure 8 of the article "In Search of John Smith" (a well-known Taunton and Barnstaple silversmith) by Tim Kent, F.S.A., which appeared in the January/February 2005 edition of The Finial (Volume 15/03). The spoon in that article was an acanthus-back trefid, also struck four times with this exact mark. The spoon was shown... Click for details

Unique Dognose / Wavy End Tablespoon Hallmarked for London c.1715
Silver : Sterling

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20171008-01   $275.00


click for details
Offered is an interesting and unusual early 18th Century Brittania standard English silver tablespoon hallmarked for London, and what appears to be the year 1715 or so. The maker's mark is poorly struck but looks like it may be "Sc", which would make it likely the maker is William Scarlett, specialist spoonmaker of London working in this period. Scarlett was prolific and experimented with form, so that would make sense. This spoon has a very unusual midrib that branches out into almost a... Click for details

or "kidney" shaped bowl, length 9 5/8 inches, weight 4.27 Troy ounces, gilt bowl, excellent condition.

Granted, this is not the rarest piece of Tiffany flatware you'll encounter while surfing the interwebz, but several features do make it stand out from the crowd: 1) the overall color, condition and lack of polishing wear 2) the exceptionally well executed and decorative Art Nouveau monogram (see third photo) which I can not decipher, and 3) the eminently reasonable price tag.

A dramatic example of Modernist design, Gorham's "No. 791" tea set, commonly identified as "Hibiscus," seems to take its inspiration from early 20th century Danish style as associated with Georg Jensen.

Working in the early decades of the 20th century (and later absorbed into Currier & Roby), Henckel produced quality work, often in an Arts and Crafts style, as evidenced by this 7 1/8" long, weighty at 3.1 T. oz.,... Click for details
