Alvin Figural

Patented in 1903, "Nuremberg" appears to have borrowed some of the body of skills that generated such other enduring Alvin Art Nouveau designs as "Raphael," and "Old Orange Blossom," but takes those elements in a different direction.

The central feature of the pattern is a satyr's face that occupies the portion just below the reserve located on the slightly upturned end of the handle. Such imagery may be connected to 16th sculpture subjects associated with this German city.

Durgin

Issued in 1891, Durgin's "Louis XV" is a dense, rococo design that reflects quite a different, and arguably more engaging, interpretation of the motif from Whiting's much simpler pattern of the same name produced in the same year.

This example is a 7 7/8" long, relatively weighty 1.0 T. oz., lettuce fork. It originally had an overall gold finish, but much of that was polished away and now shows only partly on the handle. It remains essentially intact on the three tine serving end.
