Tiffany Early 20th Century Sterling Silver Arts & Crafts Console Bowl
Silver : Sterling : Hollowware

Old Friends  
3412f   $345.00


click for details
Lacking a specific definition, console bowls are generally low and wide items, well-suited to hold fruit or decorative arrangements, and that is the case with this item.

It measures 7" across, stands 2" tall, has a tapering body that rests on a 2 3/4" wide base, and weighs a robust 11.8 T. oz.

Old Friends

This 5 1/8" long, quite heavy at approximately 1.7 T. oz., and consequently heavy gauge, sauce or cream ladle is... Click for details

Lincoln & Foss, Boston, Large Sterling Silver (Chicken) Tongs
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3406f   $265.00


click for details
Measuring 7 7/8" long and weighing just over 3.2 T. oz., this pair of tongs are large enough in relative terms to be described as immense. They may be an old implement that is sometimes referenced as (fried) chicken tongs.

They are stamped "Lincoln & Foss" for the mid 19th century (1848-57) Boston firm, and quite unusual for the date, "Sterling," rather than the expected coin silver.

The scroll pattern that appears on each leg is one that was probably produced by Farrington & Hunnewell,... Click for details

Towle LAFAYETTE nut spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2300   $90.00


click for details
length 8 1/2 inches, weight 2.55 Troy ounces, monogrammed as shown, fine condition.

Other pages on this internet show a scrawny 5 1/2 inch item which they're trying to pawn off as the nut spoon. We beg to differ. And if you'll allow me to indulge myself in some shameless salesmanship, I will state that pierced servers are eminently useful, and the pointed antique patterns fit in well with any others.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3403dd   $52.00

Based on the design, especially the pattern on the 3/4" sterling (so marked) handle bands or ferrules, these six, matching nut picks are late 19th century items.

They are large at 5 7/8" and in New England especially, would have doubled, or even primarily served, as lobster picks.

They have smooth, polished, likely bone, off white colored handles and elongated silver-plated blades.

In immaculate condition, they are all but unused. There is no loss of plating on the picks, the bands... Click for details

Jones, Shreve & Brown "Olive" Rare Sterling Silver Fish Knife
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3401f   $46.00


click for details
While "Olive" was perhaps the most popular pattern produced during the mid 19th century, and made by numerous manufacturers, with many examples consequently yet extant, this particular item is unusual.

It is a 7 1/8" long, 1.0 T. oz., flat, solid silver, knife.

About the size of a master butter, it has a long, slender blade that comes to a point and is likely an early for its form, individual fish knife, and thus a scarce find for the period.

The pattern is double die struck, meaning... Click for details
