Durgin "New Art" Lily Large Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3695f   $345.00


click for details
Arguably the line by which all other Art Nouveau floral designs are measured, Durgin's 1900 "New Art" embodies the exuberance, lushness, and fullness of expression that characterizes this style mode.

The scale of pieces in this pattern is large, as evidenced by the fact that this 8 3/4" long, very heavy at 4.7 T. oz., piece is identified as a preserve spoon, when it is actually the size of a typical berry spoon.

Multi-motif, the portraiture on this is lily. The blossoms and leaves fold... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3694f   $115.00

Marked "Tiffany & Co." and "Sterling" on the blade, it is a non full line pattern identified by the number "830."

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3690f   $78.00

Without a formal name, but commonly referred to as "Peony" for the large, single, arched, blossom that appears on the end of the handle, this circa 1885 pattern is also characterized by its twist stem.

Old Friends  
3688dd   $225.00

The primary feature of the pattern is an apparent bat face situated at the end of the handle. This suggests some resemblance to a boar or devil as well.

Other design details include wings, and possibly toes, wrapping around both sides of the handle.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3687f   $52.00

Richard Gosling, London 1733, Engraved Sterling Silver Sugar Sifter
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3686f   On Hold


click for details
Nearly three centuries old, this 6" long, 1.3 T. oz., sugar sifter with a 1 7/8" round, pierced, bowl, had its origins in Georgian England.

While the marks are some rubbed, the maker's stamp is clear for Richard Gosling, London, and the date letter for 1733. Gosling must have been something of a scurrilous character as Grimwade's London Goldsmiths 1697-1837 notes, he was "tried and convicted [in 1742] for counterfeiting marks," although "This fall grace did not . . . put him out of...

Tiffany "Lap Over Edge" Acid Etched Sterling Silver Sugar Sifter
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3683f   On Hold


click for details
One of Tiffany's most imaginative lines of flatware, "Lap Over-Over-Edge," 1880, was an exercise in theme and variation.

The theme is the turned back margin on the reverse of the handle, which is the defining element of the pattern. Subsets of this include plain, acid etched, and applied groupings, and within the latter two, there are further, seemingly countless, flora and fauna themed, iterations.

This piece, a 7 1/8" long, approximately 2.0 T. oz., large sugar sifter is etched in what... Click for details

Lengthy at 5", and weighty at 1.7 T. oz., this pair of tongs are heavily ornamented in a way that is reminiscent of the dominant architectural style popular in the period of the piece.
