With dates largely corresponding to the second quarter of the 19th century, the Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson was a significant manufacturer, producing a wide array of silver flat and hollow ware.

While modest and unpresuming in terms of function, size, and design, this pair of matching, 3 3/4" long, .5 T. oz. combined, master salt spoons nonetheless reflect the full quality of craft for which the firm was known.

They have broad, upturned, "Tipt" ends, beveled edge... Click for details

A captivating and not commonly found design, Durgin's "Bouquet" is one of that company's first full line patterns, issued in 1875.

Multi-motif, it features a variety of dense, low relief, floral images, all portrayed on irregularly shaped handles with a raised border on the backsides that resembles bamboo.

Contemporary maker K.M. Silver is listed in one source with dates 1982-2012, although a company website indicates a founding date of 1977.

Durgin "New Art" Lily Large Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3695f   $345.00

Arguably the line by which all other Art Nouveau floral designs are measured, Durgin's 1900 "New Art" embodies the exuberance, lushness, and fullness of expression that characterizes this style mode.

The scale of pieces in this pattern is large, as evidenced by the fact that this 8 3/4" long, very heavy at 4.7 T. oz., piece is identified as a preserve spoon, when it is actually the size of a typical berry spoon.

Multi-motif, the portraiture on this is lily. The blossoms and leaves fold... Click for details

Old Friends

This 4 3/4" long, .5 T. oz., hollow handle knife with a solid silver blade is individualistic in both pattern and form.

Marked "Tiffany & Co." and "Sterling" on the blade, it is a non full line pattern identified by the number "830."

Without a formal name, but commonly referred to as "Peony" for the large, single, arched, blossom that appears on the end of the handle, this circa 1885 pattern is also characterized by its twist stem.

The line is number "26," by Whiting, and this number, along with the company "lion" logo and "Sterling," appears on the backsides of this youth set, comprised of a 6 3/8" long fork and 5 7/8" long spoon, with a combined weight of 2.1 T. oz.

Richard Gosling, London 1733, Engraved Sterling Silver Sugar Sifter

Old Friends  
3686f   On Hold

Nearly three centuries old, this 6" long, 1.3 T. oz., sugar sifter with a 1 7/8" round, pierced, bowl, had its origins in Georgian England.

While the marks are some rubbed, the maker's stamp is clear for Richard Gosling, London, and the date letter for 1733. Gosling must have been something of a scurrilous character as Grimwade's London Goldsmiths 1697-1837 notes, he was "tried and convicted [in 1742] for counterfeiting marks," although "This fall grace did not . . . put him out of...

Offered is perhaps the earliest known piece by noted silversmith Henry J. Pepper, at least by style - certainly it is the earliest I've come across. This piece is a pointed-end teaspoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and a clear mark of H.I.PEPPER, Henry's early mark used pretty much exclusively during his Delaware period (1811-26). It would fit that this teaspoon was made prior to 1815. Please take a look at all the pictures. This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and... Click for details
