The only other firm that incorporates this surname cited in references is "Huntington & Tice," Cincinnati, and not a likely match for this.

J.E. Caldwell, Philadelphia, "King" Sterling Silver Entre Serving Fork

4332f   On Hold


click for details
The English inspired design on this exceptionally large, 11 1/4" long, 5.3 T. oz., serving fork is typically identified as "King" or "Kings" in American convention, but as clarified in Catherine Hollan's comprehensive Philadelphia Silversmiths, it is technically a "Queen with honeysuckle" pattern (illustration page 250).

Of uncertain intent, this mid 19th century form was clearly of a scale suitable for use as a banquet item.

The serving end has five broad tines joined to a pierced... Click for details

Given the handle is narrow, the mark is only partially imprinted, but still distinct enough for a certain attribution.

Acorn-Grip Sugar Tongs by R. Wilson (in Script), Circa 1805
Silver : Coin Silver

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20200819-02   Sold


click for details
Offered is a very beat-up and repaired pair of early 19th Century American coin silver sugar tongs with acorn-style grips, marked R.Wilson in script on one arm. I believe this is one of the early marks used by noted silversmith Robert Wilson in his New York period (circa 1800-10), before he moved to Philadelphia and joined William Wilson in partnership. But, perhaps there was another R.Wilson working around this time. In any event, this piece has a rubbed but still legible maker's mark (see... Click for details

The design of this 3 1/4" tall, 2 3/4" top diameter, 3 3/4" wide to the handle end, weighty, 4.5 T. oz., mug reflects the colonial and Georgian revivalist design motifs that arose in the early decades of the 20th century.
