Baltimore circa 1850. Length 9 1/8 inches, weight 1.71 Troy ounces, attractive floral engraving, monogrammed "Clintonia."

We've checked the big bad auction site, and can't find anything similar there for under one hundred mighty dollars, so if you're a reseller, there's a good chance that you'll be able to make enough on this to buy a minor league sports team, or at the very least a small yacht.

length 9 1/8 inches, weight 4.75 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.

In all probability, this item is not terribly old. Towle remanufactured many pieces of this pattern in the mid 1980's, in an attempt to recapture some of their former glory. So though it's entirely legit, we can't represent this as antique. However, as with Gorham's later (also 1980's) production of historic patterns, the utmost care has been taken and no apologies need be made for the quality of this... Click for details

Offered is a lovely pair of American coin silver tablespoons by noted New York maker Albert Coles, in a pattern that may have been proprietary to his firm. I've seen teaspoons in this pattern over the years, and occasionally another form, but these are the first tablespoons. Each bears a maker's mark of A.COLES for Albert Coles (which indicates he both made and probably retailed these, as otherwise he would have had his manufacturing marks on these), and each also has an engraved period script...

Offered is a quite uncommon example of Russian Empire silver made in the Ukraine in the 19th Century and specifically in Odessa, on the Black Sea. These tablespoons are hallmarked by the Assay Master for 1893, and this matches the engraving of an aristocrat's initials and coronet, and the date of 3-16-1893. The hallmarks are accompanied by a maker's marks, but I haven't found anything about the maker. These tablespoons each measure about 8 1/4 inches in length, and the pair weighs about 100...

To give these some historical perspective, consider that the high relief, elaborately detailed patterns such as New Art and Chrysanthemum didn't spring into existence out of nowhere. Early (1860's) die-struck designs such as this were the middle step between simple, swaged decoration and the... Click for details
