Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2924f   $95.00


click for details
A grape motif dating from 1905, International's "Cloeta" reflects the abundantly expressive design sensibilities of its Art Nouveau period. It features high relief, intricately detailed grape clusters, leaves, and tendrils.

Rare Very Early Old English Pattern Crested Soup Ladle Circa 1755
Silver : Sterling

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20161101-01   $375.00


click for details
Offered is a lovely and extremely rare example of the Old English pattern in the first few years of its development. The first moves away from the Hanoverian pattern were with the larger serving pieces, such as this soup ladle, and with some forks. The primary reason for this shift was the discomfort of using pieces like soup ladles with the turned-up handles of the Hanoverian pattern; the turned-down end of the Old English pattern was simply more comfortable in the hand.

This piece bears... Click for details
