Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends

At 9" long and weighing a substantial 2.1 T. oz., this large table or serving spoon has Scottish origins.

It is clearly stamped with a castle for Edinburgh, a thistle for sterling, a date letter W for 1828, and a bust duty mark. The maker's initials are "JH," for John Hay whose dates correspond with this.

Gorham "Imperial Chrysanthemum" Sterling Pea or Ice Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2659f   $225.00


click for details
A large item measuring 8 1/2" long and weighing a robust 3.1 T. oz., this serving piece is variously identified as a pea, vegetable, or ice spoon. The determinative characteristic of this form is a generously-sized, reticulated bowl, and indeed that is the case with this example in Gorham's "Imperial Chrysanthemum." The piercing in this instance is a leaf design.

The late 19th century pattern is expressive, portraying an abundance of chrysanthemum blossoms and leaves arrayed on both front... Click for details

Wallace Art Nouveau Floral Sterling Silver Sugar Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2640f   $44.00


click for details
An undocumented pattern, this Art Nouveau, floral, design stands alone among Wallace offerings.

This piece is a 6 1/8" long, just over .8 T. oz., sugar spoon.

It is unusual in that the upper end of the handle is hollow, while the lower portion is tubular. This provides for a thicker than usual grip, and also enables more detailed design elements, which include a blossom, bud, and sinuous leaves set against a textured background.

The bowl is decorative, in keeping with the overall... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2630f   $55.00


click for details
Dating from 1872, Gorham's "Corinthian" embodies the Classical Revival sensibilities of the period. Architectural in style, it incorporates an anthemion leaf on the handle surmounted by leafy tracery.

The 3/4" deep, nearly round, 2" diameter, bowl with a central vee, flanged shoulders, and slightly tipped lip, on this 6" long, 1.2 T. oz., sauce ladle is engraved in a Palmetto leaf motif that is evocative of Egyptian Revival style.

Whiting "Dresden" Sterling Silver Lettuce Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2622f   $60.00


click for details
Delicate and slender, this lettuce fork is extra long at 9 5/16". It weighs just over 1.0 T. oz.

The pattern is Whiting's late 19th century "Dresden," which is a charming and intricate floral design that features what appear to be forget-me-not blossoms and leaves trailing up the handle. A shell surmounts the handle tip and there is acanthus leaf detailing in other areas. The pattern repeats with slight variation on both sides of the handle.

The lower portion of the handle is plain... Click for details

A multi-motif figural design, "Fontainebleau" was one of several exceptional patterns that Gorham produced in the late 19th century.

Howard & Co., NY, Solid Sterling Grape Shears, Exceptional
Silver : Sterling : Smalls

Old Friends  
2610f   $195.00


click for details
This example of Victorian period grape shears or, as period catalogues identify them, scissors, are of a quality that set the bar for such pieces. They excel in terms of design, manufacture, and material.

The first factor that stands out is that they are made of solid sterling silver. Grape shears typically have steel cutters, while these are clearly marked on the backside of the lower blade "Howard & Co.," the date "1892," "New York," and "Sterling." To be sure, they do have darkened... Click for details

Both large, at 4 7/8" long, and heavy, at nearly 1.3, T. oz., this pair of sugar tongs are a very fine example of Towle's "Old Colonial."

Old Friends  
2585f   $95.00


click for details
This 7 7/8" long, approximately 2.0 t. oz., serving spoon was produced or adapted by San Francisco's George C. Shreve.

It is apparently modified from a Whiting "Louis XV" pattern. It retains the "Sterling" and "Pat. 1891" marks of that line, accompanied by "Geo. C. Shreve & Co.," and dates between 1891 and 1894, when the name of the firm became "Shreve & Co."

The piece incorporates two variations, both of which reflect highly sophisticated craftsmanship.
