height 1 7/8 and 2 1/4 inches respectively; gross Troy weight 5.1 ounces, no monogram, excellent condition although the ebony (or teak?) handle is a bit wobbly in place.

Porter was a highly talented silversmith, but his work is inconsistent and sometimes sloppy. These items showcase his skills at their best. The solder joints are subtle and superbly executed, the hammering is uniform and attractive, the piercings are symmetrical.

Offered is a nice pair of English silver sugar tongs dating to 1800 and bearing a maker's mark of IE, perhaps for John Edington or perhaps someone else.

These tongs are in a plain Old English Pattern form, with a simple, Scottish-style (lacking feathering) engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about...

Offered is an American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark of Chauncey Johnson, who worked there from about 1820 into the 1840s, before relocating to Bastrop, Texas.

McGrew to Green Hall of Albany, working circa 1810-27. This same mark appears frequently on work marked by Nehemiah B. Bassett (died 1819) alone and in partnership as Bassett &... Click for details

Although commonly referred to as "Old English," this pattern is identified in the Gorham archives as "Old English." It follows after an early English pattern that is characterized by a flat disk that surmounts the end of the faceted shank. The disk has a knurled edge, and in this case is engraved with an "E.N.T." monogram.

Almost never marked, it frequently goes unrecognized for what it is, namely coin silver produced by the above maker. Wood & Hughes made a nearly identical pattern with... Click for details
