Old Friends  
3686f   On Hold


click for details
Nearly three centuries old, this 6" long, 1.3 T. oz., sugar sifter with a 1 7/8" round, pierced, bowl, had its origins in Georgian England.

While the marks are some rubbed, the maker's stamp is clear for Richard Gosling, London, and the date letter for 1733. Gosling must have been something of a scurrilous character as Grimwade's London Goldsmiths 1697-1837 notes, he was "tried and convicted [in 1742] for counterfeiting marks," although "This fall grace did not . . . put him out of...

Tiffany "Lap Over Edge" Acid Etched Sterling Silver Sugar Sifter
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3683f   On Hold

One of Tiffany's most imaginative lines of flatware, "Lap Over-Over-Edge," 1880, was an exercise in theme and variation.

The theme is the turned back margin on the reverse of the handle, which is the defining element of the pattern. Subsets of this include plain, acid etched, and applied groupings, and within the latter two, there are further, seemingly countless, flora and fauna themed, iterations.

This piece, a 7 1/8" long, approximately 2.0 T. oz., large sugar sifter is etched in what... Click for details
