COIN ALBERT COLES 'JENNY LIND' YOUTH KNIFE, FORK
click for details
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

'Louis XIV' (patented in 1870) was one of the many innovative patterns introduced by Gorham following the coin period, this one using suggestions of classical elements – column, arches, volutes, dart-and-egg in a new way, with a very pleasing result. 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
click for details
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

Pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, script mono M L J on front; 5-7/8" in length. Condition is excellent, extended bowl tip unworn. Pinched-waist fiddles are not common in VA; Wright's proximity to TN & KY, where the style is quite common, probably had an influence here. See Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths" for a full discussion of Wright and his work.

Dimensions as follows: cup 2-5/8" high, saucer 5-1/4" diameter; total weight is an imposing 7.25 Troy oz. Condition is excellent throughout.

Teaspoon by John Peabody, Nashville, Tenn.

Peabody's spoons are distinctive in design --slim oval-end downturned fiddle handles -- nothing quite like them by other makers. This piece has flared shoulders and a short reverse rib. The mono is EB in a feathered script. Length is 5-3/8". Condition is near-mint. This is probably the same John Peabody who worked earlier in Fayetteville, NC. The spoons pictured on p. 125 of "Silversmiths of NC" are not at all similar in design to this piece.
