Rare Mechanics (Watson) Sterling Silver Floral Cold Meat Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4525f   $52.00


click for details
The identity of the Mechanics Silver Company was largely subsumed under that of Watson & Newell (later just Watson), with the former portrayed as the flatware arm of the latter.

As the multi-floral and leaf pattern on this 7 3/8" long, 1.4 T. oz., cold meat fork is not otherwise identified, and specifically not listed as a Watson design, it suggests that Mechanics produced its own (and not readily found) flatware prior to being absorbed by Watson in the late 19th century.

with sea creatures and granulated "sand" decoration, length 6 1/4 inches, weight 1.73 Troy ounces, excellent original condition, no monogram.

One factor which ultimately contributed to the demise of his firm was that George Shiebler's best designs were difficult to execute and costly to produce. Not many of these forks were made, and the surviving examples vary in quality and condition.

"Pat. Mar. 20. 1894," as stamped on the backside of this piece, along with a "lion, anchor, G" emblem and "Sterling," Gorham's "Zodiac" series proved popular from its introduction onward.

Teaspoons are readily found, but children's pieces such as this 5 3/4" long, weighty at 1.0 T. oz., youth fork are less common.

This example is "August" and "Virgo," noting that the sign and month in this line do not necessarily correlate exactly with contemporary conventions.

Each of these two tea or coffee spoons measure 5 1/4" long and weigh approximately .9 T. oz. combined.

Matching items, they are marked for London, 1814-15, sterling, and makers Peter and William Bateman. The maker's stamp is rubbed but is legible for these familiar members of their well-known English silversmithing family, and the date is appropriate.

The "Old English" handles are downturned with "Tipt" backsides and have thumb drops on the bowl reverses.

The fronts have "M over D*B"... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends

The first detail to note about this piece is that it may be a modified or even composite item.

That said, it is clearly marked with an original cursive "RP" attributed in the benchmark English hallmark reference Grimwade as likely Robert Perth, London, 1748-54. The companion lion mark for sterling is clear, while the date letter is rubbed.

Offered is a lovely American coin silver spoon by the Troy, Ohio partnership of Ensey & Harter, who are not that well documented. One of the partners was Frank Lair Harter (1840-89), but I haven't found much on Ensey. This teaspoon has a clear maker's mark or retailer's mark for the partnership; it appears to be an uncommon mark. This spoon is also engraved "Nettie" in period script. It measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is excellent overall, with... Click for details

Whiting "Honeysuckle" (Old) Sterling Silver Master Butter Knife

click for details
This 7 1/2" long, relatively weighty 1.3 T. oz., flat handle knife is unusual in both pattern and form.

The pattern is "Honeysuckle," attributed to Whiting, but to be differentiated from that company's 1870 design of the same name, sometimes referred to as "New Honeysuckle." Perhaps this secondary name derives from the historical difference between the two patterns.

To be sure, this particular design is rarely found and not widely known as Whiting's. In fact, the design is strongly... Click for details
