Codman & Codman fruit bowl number 155

length 13 1/2; width 11; height 2 1/4 inches, in classic Art Nouveau form with embossed cherries along undulating border, no monogram, excellent condition though currently a bit bright (we're not responsible for this sin, alas...), weight 27 oz. Troy. Those who unlike Yours Truly have long strong memories may recall a similar example which we helped place in the Gorham collection at RISD (see Silver Magazine, March/April '98, p. 18). This one is a bit better, we think. But why let museums... Click for details

Engraved Lily Sterling 3-Piece Youth Set
click for details
The Engraved Lily pattern was a somewhat standard bright-cut pattern – that is, it was made by several makers and was very popular ca. 1885. The lily blossoms follow the curvature of the handle, punctuated with diamond cuts. This youth set is marked with Sterling and the name of Harris & Schafer, a respected Washington DC retailer, which is unlikely to have been the maker. The set has been used but not abused. Wear is a very, very slight but even loss of crispness to the pattern, most... Click for details

Early Gorham Coin Pompeii Forks (4)

Early Gorham Coin Pompeii Forks (4)
click for details
The Classical elements of Gorham's Pompeii pattern – volutes, acanthus, anthemion – are as crisp as when they were new, with no heel, knife, or stacking scratches. Amazing that these four dinner-size (7.5 inch) forks could have survived over 150 years with no monogram! They were likely made in the year the pattern was introduced (1868) because they are coin (Gorham phased out coin silver in 1868) and they have 'Patent Applied For' which assures an early production. Weight is 212 grams.

Delicate Howard Sterling Fork - York
click for details
This lovely little fork is probably a place fork – ramekin? Pickle? Dessert? At 5.4 inches, it seems a bit short for anything else. It could be used as a small serving fork. The pattern dates to 1898 – 3 years before Howard Sterling Co. went into receivership. The handle has a fluted texture from which spring acanthus leaves forming the lacy architecture of the remaining handle. The ovate blade of the fork is simple but graceful. There is no monogram. The surface and form are in... Click for details

The Old English form of the 6 sterling spoons is dressed with a lovely and traditional diamond hand-cut and engraved design by highly respected London silversmith Thomas Dealtry who was entered into the goldsmiths' registry in 1765. They are hallmarked for 1802 with the mark Dealtry registered in 1799. The spoons are 5 inches long, and their condition is very, very good.

Enigmatic Sterling Lemon(?) Fork
click for details
This fork is an example of a prolific maker of reproduction pieces that were marketed around 1900 – coinciding with the rise of the Arts & Crafts movement – as hand-made items based on antique forms. The mark on the underside – (925)(000) – is a uniform mark on all pieces I've ever seen. Some are plain, and some are decorated with a wreath, ribbons, and a shield like this fork. All pieces appear to be heavy and a tad awkward in their execution. The question is, why? It may well be... Click for details

Very Good German 800 Spoons - Bruckmann & Sohne

The 6 spoons (8.1 inches) are in one of the most traditional patterns of theWestern world, originating in Germany in the late 18th century: the “Fiddle Thread” or “Fadenmuster”. They are 800 fine, or 80% pure, silver. Peter Bruckmann & Sons was located in Heilbronn, Germany, from 1805 until 1973 and enjoyed prestige as one of Germany's finest makers. It's hard to know where these fit into Bruckmann's production history, but from the bowl shape and their strong tips, I'd guess around... Click for details

Outstanding Tiffany/Moore/Hebbard Coin Platter Spoon

Beautiful stuffing or basting spoon in the “Louis XIV” pattern first patented in 1847 by John Chandler Moore. It was variously produced by John Polhemus (Polhamus) and Henry Hebbard, all of whom sold through Tiffany prior to Tiffany's own silver production. This must have been an early example because it's not marked “sterling” as most other pieces made for Tiffany were; rather, it is coin. There is a monogram WCA. The double-struck pattern is crisp, and scratches are only very... Click for details

Gorham Sterling Marie Antoinette Serving Spoon

Nice example of Gorham's multi-motif pattern introduced in 1890. The French style implied by the pattern's name has Rococo elements that go well with the heart-shaped bowl which has a repousse “rat tail” extending nearly to its tip. There is a very, very faint remnant of a monogram D, but it's so shallow and worn (not removed) as to be almost indiscernible. Marked simply with the Gorham logo and the word “sterling.” The condition is excellent. Length is 7.25 inches and the weight 42... Click for details

These are older D & H Pointed Antique / Broad Antique knives – introduced in 1895 – with stainless French Modern replacement blades marked “Brilliant.” They are 9-1/8 in. long and bear a lovely Arts & Crafts monogram. They are marked only “sterling handle” which is very common for knives, but I got them with several other pieces of Dominick & Haff of the same vintage with the same monogram, so I'm comfortable with the identification. Two handles rattle sometimes, but are quite... Click for details
