Silver : Sterling : Smalls

Old Friends  
4041f   $265.00


click for details
Issued in 1878, Gorham's fabulously designed "Narragansett" pattern was developed using models from sea life found in the Rhode Island bay of this name.

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20191110-04   Sold

Offered is an excellent early Marietta coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Elisha Pratt (b. 1798 - d. 1855), who was trained by his father, silversmith Azariah Pratt in Marietta, his apprenticeship beginning around 1815 or a bit earlier. By the 1820s, Elisha would have been working on his own in Marietta, though the first formal note of his profession as a silversmith seems to date to 1828.

Offered is a circa 1824-40 American coin silver teaspoon by Syracuse silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Hiram Judson, working circa 1824 to his death in 1853. By style, this piece would be on the early end of his career. The maker's mark of H.JUDSON is well struck, and there is another, very interesting mark in a shield form, perhaps heraldic. This mark doesn't appear to be associated with any other Judson pieces observed online, and may have been the mark of a transiting journeyman. In any... Click for details
