J.E. Caldwell, Philadelphia, Engraved Coin Silver Preserve Spoon

Elegant on several counts, this 7" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon traces to Philadelphia. It is stamped "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for that City's carriage trade firm, but was likely made by one of several major local manufacturers.

The handle end is broad, with a slightly tipt... Click for details

Gorham Egyptian Revival

Arguably the most emblematic pattern in the Egyptian Revival movement of the time, Gorham's 1870 "Isis" also demonstrates in its complex construction the burgeoning capacities of American silver manufacturers from the mid 19th century onward.
