Pair of Irish Provincial Silver Teaspoons Circa 1820
Silver : Sterling

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20170304-08   $32.50


click for details
Offered is a good pair of early 19th Century Irish provincial silver teaspoons, probably made in Cork, but marked only STERLING and lacking a maker's mark. These are certainly early 19th Century and Irish, and the specific maker could perhaps be determined by comparing the dies for STERLING used by the various Cork silversmiths. In any event, these teaspoons are nice examples of nearly 200-year old provincial Irish silver that can be used on a day-to-day basis. Each spoon bears an engraved... Click for details

Old Friends  
3026f   $95.00

Introduced in 1885, Whiting's "Lily of the Valley" immediately established itself as an outstanding pattern, and has remained sought after ever since.

Sculptural in nature, it features a raised stalk of blossoms enveloped by leaves, which form the margins of the handle. The ground behind the blossoms is lined, again representative of the leaves, and this also serves as an enhancing design element.

In sum, it reflects influences from the innovative design sensibilities of the Aesthetic... Click for details

Whiting "Berry" Sterling Silver Place or Youth Spoon Engraved "Jeff"
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3016F   $45.00


click for details
A weighty 1.2 T. oz., this spoon measures 6 3/4" long, which is the length of a dessert or oval soup.

Two aspects of it, however, suggest it was a youth spoon.

One is obvious, specifically the engraving in the bowl, which reads, "JEFF Dec. 10. 90," which is likely a birth date.

The second feature is the dual sided gold wash on the bowl. This is an unusual embellishment for a place piece.

The pattern is Whiting's multi-motif "Berry," in this case elderberry, which is portrayed on... Click for details

While hallmarked for Chester, England, with a date letter for 1908-09, this sterling silver tea caddy spoon has dual Scottish associations.

First is the maker's identifier, which is "MF" in a rectangle. This is for M(ontague) Friedlander & Co., who also registered in the Glasgow, Scotland assay office.
