S.D. Brower

This piece is a 5 7/8" long, just over .7 T. oz., teaspoon was made by Sperry Douglas Brower who was an Albany silversmith and manufacturer of repute and substantial size.

Examples of his work are readily found, although that is not the case with his "Medallion" pattern, which this is, as instances of it are scant. In fact, Don Soeffing in his work on Medallion silver shows two spoon examples and states they are the only pieces he had seen.

This example features a right facing, slightly... Click for details

Marked "S.T. Crosby" for the Boston retailer, 1854-61, each of these six forks measures 7 7/16" long. They likely were originally 7 1/2", dinner size, but show some tip wear on the tines (and light knife cuts on the backsides). Quite heavy, the group weighs 9.6 T oz.

The pattern is "Olive," with the actual maker probably Farrington & Hunnewell, also a Boston firm. In addition to the retailer's mark, they are stamped "Pure-Coin," a designation primarily used in New England.

Durgin "Chrysanthemum" Sterling Silver Sauce Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends

Durgin
click for details
Chrysanthemum was a favored theme for silver manufacturers in the late 19th century, leading into the Art Nouveau period, and Tiffany and Durgin arguably produced the standard bearers for the motif.

This example by Durgin is a 5 1/2" long sauce or cream ladle. A heavy line, this seems especially so at nearly 2.0 T. oz.

It exhibits all the exuberance of design that has made the pattern so popular, with the dense floral clusters tumbling into the bowl. The bowl is deep, has flanged... Click for details

This has a rounded, upturned handle with ivy leaves engraved on the surface. In this instance, the reserve on the front is also inscribed with an American eagle surrounded by laurel branches. Whether this was intended to be purely decorative or had a familial or positional association is unknown, but in either case it is an enhancement to the design. The backside is engraved...

Meriden Britannia Hammered Sterling Footed Dish

Meriden Britannia had been a well-established company producing quality silverplate for half a century when it entered the sterling market with the purchase of Wilcox & Evertsen in 1895. Shortly thereafter the whole firm became a part of International Silver Company, but the use of the MB nameplate continued until about 1930.

This open dish likely dates from early in the 20th century. Contemporary catalogs identity the form as a mayonnaise bowl. It stands 3" at the highest, is 5 1/2"... Click for details

Erroneously attributed by Tere Hagen in her reference work on flatware identification to Reed & Barton, this floral pattern is an early line pattern that was produced by William Durgin. Hagen calls it "Spray" but there is no documentation to that effect. The design features a charming bouquet of flowers, leaves, and grasses tied in a bow.

Examples of this show up in both coin and sterling silver, and only occasionally with the Durgin name or mark. This is stamped "Sterling" and "Pat.... Click for details
