diameter 6; height 2 3/8 inches, weight 8.42 Troy ounces, no monogram, some light scratches to interior (see second enlargement) but fine overall condition, maker Herman Glendenning.

Not a common form, this five lobed bowl is deceptively simple but devilishly difficult to make. Each section would have been "set in pitch" and hammered, keeping the line straight but gently increasing in height as it approached the rim. Then five pieces of molding were applied over the edge and soldered... Click for details

Pitman coin silver cream jug

height 7 1/8 inches, weight 5.52 Troy ounces, fine condition, monogrammed as shown in third enlargement.

This mark is commonly given to Saunders Pitman, but we are not so certain that it is his. For example, though the Met attributes a cream jug in their collection (accession number 33.120.311) to Saunders, some might consider this attribution to be problematic, since he'd been dead for a good solid forty years when it was made.

Other reasonable possibilities would include John K.... Click for details

Frequent guests of our little web page know that we don't list many Martelé items.

Offered is a lovely example of the work of important Philadelphia silversmith Harvey Lewis, who is one of the pantheon of major silversmiths in American history. This teaspoon, dating by style to about 1810-15 give or take half a decade, is distinguished by its rare mark, which was mentioned but not photographed for Catherine Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths". In the several decades I've been involved with antique silver, this is the only example of this mark that I've come across, despite... Click for details

A full figure nude in the manner of "Bacchante," a design that offended the sensibilities of turn of the 20th century Bostonians, Watson's companion "Phoebe" (1895) likewise expresses the freedoms of style and subject found in the Art Nouveau mode.

The figure is surrounded by considerable imagery including wheat, a grape cluster, a shell, and clouds, this last details perhaps derivative of her mythological identity as a Titan associated with light.

Offered is a very interesting American coin silver table fork by Taylor & Hinsdale of New York, and bearing the mark of that firm as well as manufacturer's marks made to resemble English marks, albeit only vaguely. This piece perhaps was made to match an English set, though, given the form and weight - it measures about 8 inches in length and weighs about 63 grams.
