Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2048   last seen in Chinese customs, now missing and presumed stolen


click for details
no, not that kind of a cat box, but a snuff box with "trap door" opening and secret compartment, 2 1/4 by 1 7/8 by 1 inches, weight 2.27 oz. Troy, marked with Chinese ideograms only (please see 5th photo).

In terms of construction, this is, not alas a first rate object. The edges don't quite meet up flush, the hinge is on the exterior rather than integral, and there are also a few minor bits of waviness on the front and side panels. However, the subject matter is totally charming, and... Click for details

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2047   $125.00

Rand and Crane, length 11 5/8 inches, weight 3.98 oz. Troy, monogrammed "M" (obverse, old English), excellent condition with button on reverse. The shell appears to be applied rather than die-struck, but little else is remarkable about this spoon aside from the price, which we deem to be quite reasonable.

8 HEAVY ANTIQUE STERLING SPOONS
Silver

Bargentum  
1112505   $255.00


click for details
The mark on the spoons is that of Bigelow, Kennard & Co., 925, and probably date from the last quarter of the 19th Century. The form of the handle is Old English, the bowls have the slightly narrower and elongated oval shape associated with early Georgian silver – and would go very well with flatware of that period. They are 5-5/8 in. long and weigh 258 g. A feathery script F is monogrammed to the front of the handle. There are no distractions of any kind. The spoons have been well... Click for details

VINTAGE SILVER DANISH LADLE – 1936
Silver

Bargentum  
1112502   $75.00


click for details
The simplicity of the flat handle of this ladle is balanced by the curvacious four-lobed bowl. A stock of flowers is lightly engraved on the handle which is outlined with a thread. The underside is completely plain. There is no maker's mark, but the imprint on the back of the handle is of three towers over the number 36 and indicates its origins (Denmark), year of manufacture (1936), and purity of 826 (82.6%) as further guaranteed by the JS mark of the Assay Master, Jens Sigsgaard (active...

12 COIN HOLLOW-HANDLE 'OVAL THREAD' KNIVES

A classic mid-19th century pattern of the coin period, 'Oval Thread' appears with marks by most makers and retailers. The blades are even, without waviness, bites or burrs; the handles are firm, with no splits. There is no pitting. Wear is commensurate with their 150+ years, and have been well cared for. An anchor, Victorian head, and lion are stamped on the blades, indicating a New York maker. The name Phelps is lightly engraved on the handles in period script. The knives are a hair over 8...

12 BRIGHT-CUT FORKS / GORHAM 'CHRYSANTHEMUM'
Silver

Bargentum  
1112336   $590.00


click for details
The Japanese influences of the 1870s and 1880s came to silver in many forms. The bright-cut designs of the period utilized such elements as flowers, leaves, birds, and branches found in Japanese textiles, but as in 'Chrysanthemum' (introduced 1885), their asymmetrical dispositions were constrained by the Old English forms into which they were cut. Acid etching is the background of the handles into which the flowers are incised and emphasizes the flowers, branches and leaves. There is very,... Click for details

LOVELY COIN SERVING SPOON – JAMES WATTS
Silver

Bargentum  
X2294   $120.00


click for details
Engraving on Philadelphia silver is first-rate, and this spoon is no exception. The handle uses an engine-turned field enclosed by threads to set off a shield with 'Heritage' engraved in lovely period script. The bowl of the spoon is fluted with a dart and egg edge. James Watts, whose mark together with the word 'coin' appears on the undecorated reverse of the handle, was both a maker and a retailer, ca. 1840-1880, and I would guess that this spoon was probably made ca. 1860. It is 8.7 in.... Click for details

DECORATIVE HANAU TEA STRAINER
Silver

X2327   $140.00


click for details
Hanau, Germany, was a center for silversmiths from the mid-19th century to the first decades of the 20th century, and whose major works involved copying or recreating antique styles in flatware and holloware. Its special status allowed it to be free of the marking system that was incumbent on all other German cities, and many are not completely known today. This tea strainer is typical of Hanau work – Renaissance elements, such as putti with bows and arrows, torches, birds frolic in an... Click for details

2728D   On Hold

Most pieces in this pattern, introduced ca. 1870, are unmarked as to maker, and this is no exception. Because, however, I have seen pieces with Whiting's mark, I will make that tentative attribution. The stylized leaves and berries are arranged on a textured ground and encased by a defining geometric edge. The blade is engraved with leaves inside a zig-zag outline. It is single-die cut. The condition is fine, with no bends or burrs, and only age-expected wear to the engraving. The knife is... Click for details

The β€œDognose” pattern was made in England ca. 1695-1715 during the period when the Britannia, or 95.84%, purity standard was used (1697-1720), and serving as a style that transitions from the trefid to Hanoverian; it was seldom seen after 1720. Typical of the Queen Anne style, the handle of this spoon has an upturned terminal which is characterized by a β€œwavy end” resembling a dog's nose when viewed from above. Attachment to the oval bowl is by a reeded rattail which has softened... Click for details
