Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3509f   $70.00


click for details
One of the major names in 19th century San Francisco silver manufacturing, Koehler & Ritter produced several full line patterns, holloware, and even some monumental individual items (see Silver in the Golden State).

This pair of 7 3/8" long, 2.8 T. oz. combined, coin silver forks are examples of the firm's "Alameda" aka "Ivy" design.

Similar in style to Gorham's Greek Revival "Corinthian" of the same c. 1870 period, it is more embellished than that pattern, with added ivy sprays... Click for details

20180520-01   $75.00


click for details
Offered is a lovely and well-preserved Ivy pattern pierced ladle with gilt bowl, by Henry Hebbard (patented circa 1865) and later Whiting. This piece dates to the first years of the sterling era, probably around 1865-75. It measures about 6 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 40 grams.

This piece was never engraved with a monogram or crest - perhaps it was taken home... Click for details

Franklin Porter hand wrought sterling shotglass

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.

Watson Cast "Cherub" Heart Shaped Bowl Sterling Silver Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3489f   $42.00


click for details
Produced by Watson, this version of "Cherub," while similar and perhaps a variant, is to be distinguished from the company's full line pattern with this name (see Old Friends item 2714f for comparison).

The figure on this 4 1/4" long, unusually heavy at nearly .5 T. oz., spoon appears to be cast rather than die struck, and possesses much more dimension and detail than the line design.

Indeed, the youthful image evinces an angelic, innocent, and ethereal quality, suggesting she or he is not... Click for details
