HEAVY GERMAN LADLE

This ladle is marked for Koberlin Brothers, an old silverware firm in Saxony founded in 1828, although the ladle probably dates from the first quarter of the 20th century. It is decorated simply with a single thread outlining the curving form, and with the only relief being the monogram AP. The bowl is oval, and gold-washed. It is marked with the Koberlin mark, the German Imperial marks of crescent moon and crown, and 800 fine (in contrast with 925 for sterling) for the silver content. Length... Click for details

LONGER-HANDLED COIN MUSTARD LADLE, S.D. BROWER

One outgrowth of the “Josephine” pattern is the S.D. Brower variant of this design, and it probably emerged soon after 1855.

The motif is repeated on the underside, terminating in an acanthus on the bowl. Condition of form, bowl and design is very good, with no spots, dents, bends or burrs. The length is...

6 NORDIC SPOONS, Ca. 1790
click for details
“Nordic” in this case could be Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Lapland and Norway) or northern Germany (which belonged to Denmark at times) or even the Baltic region – the marks are not consistent with official markings of the time and would point to a region more isolated from a guardein, or silver warden. Stylistic identification is the most reliable source, speaking to the straight form of the handle and its down-turned tip, and with its suggestion of a rib carried from the... Click for details

“Bead” was perhaps introduced by John Polhemus, but it certainly was made by several others and became a 'standard pattern' in the coin period – a Pointed Antique handle outlined with beads and topped by foliage. Like many of those patterns, it crossed over into plate and was made by many manufacturers. These knives are 7.5 in. long and are are marked for JF Curran & Co. (NY) which survived for only about 10 years, about 1865-1875. They are marked A1 – the superior quality for... Click for details

ENGRAVED NORWEGIAN SPOON

At a hair under 8.5 in., this spoon was probably a place spoon. The handle is delicately engraved to create a field containing bright-cut foliage. The maker was the Norsk Filigransfabrikk (1889-1910) whose mark is on the back, together with 13-1/2 indicating the Loth content, equivalent to 826 fine silver, or 82.6%, as a guarantee. Since the Norwegian marking system was changed in 1891 to eliminate the Loth, this spoon was made between 1889 and 1891. There is no damage to the spoon. It has... Click for details

STERL. GORHAM 'LILY' ('88') YOUTH KNIFE AND SPOON

Improvements in the silver manufacturing process by 1870 made possible new design implementations, and Gorham probably led the field with a spate of innovative patterns, among them “Lily” (1870). It is also known as “No. 88.” The delicacy of the single die is representative of what was now possible. The youth knife and spoon were well cared for.

Albert Coles (1815-1885) must have attended one of the early concerts given by Jenny Lind upon her arrival in New York, where Coles worked, in 1850; his pattern is generally placed in that year. Known as the “Swedish Nightingale,” Jenny Lind won an immediate place in the hearts of Americans, not only for her voice but also for her philanthropy for which was deemed virtuous. Many places and objects were named after her. Coles' tribute in creating the double-struck Jenny Lind pattern took... Click for details

The spoon is in excellent condition – no bends, dents, pits or burrs – only superficial scratches expected with age. It is 8.75 in., 54 g., and has a lovely script monogram CEL on the reverse.

6 WOOD & HUGHES STERLING ICE CREAM SPOONS

These are very attractive spoons, 5.25 long, with a twisted shank terminating in a rounded flat end with a Japanesque bright-cut décor that is in keeping with other patterns ca. 1880. The bowls have raised ridges (to keep the ice cream from sticking?) and have very pale suggestions of original gold treatment. (I am reluctant to clean them more than superficially because of this.) Wood & Hughes was known for many specialty items, but this is not a pattern I have encountered – it is similar... Click for details
