Old Friends  
3750f   $325.00


click for details
Illustrated and identified in Gorham's 1888 catalogue as an "olive spoon and fork," this 12" long, 2.0 T. oz., piece embodies the aesthetic sensibilities of the period, evidenced by its naturalistic form.

The full length of the handle is nubby, slightly twisted, and stem like. The bowl is virtually a leaf, with piercings that resemble veins, and a surface that is engraved with additional leaves.

The applied olive and two leaves attached to the stem appear to grow out of it, and appear... Click for details

click for details
The 1870s produced an abundant flowering of appealing designs from the New York City firm of Wood & Hughes, of which "Zephyr" is one.

Moorish or Renaissance Revival in style, with a repeating motif on the mid and lower portions of the handle, the pointed end has fins or wings that suggest an arch and thereby lend the design an architectural quality.

Howard & Co., NY, Solid Sterling Grape Shears with Foxes circa 1895
Silver : Sterling : Smalls

Old Friends  
3742f   $295.00

This example of late Victorian grape shears or, as period catalogues identify them, scissors, are of a quality that set the bar for such pieces. They excel in terms of design, manufacture, and material.

The first factor that stands out is that they are made of solid sterling silver. Grape shears typically have steel cutters, while these are clearly marked on the backside of the lower blade "Howard & Co." and "Sterling," which applies to the entire piece.

They measure 6 7/8" long and... Click for details

Old Friends
