Superb Gorham
click for details
One of Gorham's earliest patterns, dating from the 1860s, "Rosette" takes its name from the design element situated in the center of the handle. It also has an anthemion with scrolled supports located at the end of the lined-border handle, placing it clearly in the Greek Revival style.

Elegant in its simplicity, the pattern shows spectacularly so at the scale of this 12 1/2" long, heavy at 6.2 T. oz., soup ladle.

The bowl is large, 3 3/4" across and 1 1/2" deep. It has a central vee in... Click for details

According to the identifications offered in the "Encylopedia of American Silver Manufacturers," the style of the "S. Kirk & Son" mark, along with the word "Sterling," was used 1925-32, indicating these have considerable age.

Gorham "88" aka "Lily" Sterling Silver Table Serving Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2755f   $80.00

Gorham
click for details
An early Gorham pattern dating from 1870, "Lily" is often referred to as "88" because that number frequently appears on the backside of pieces.

The design actually portrays a lily of the valley, with strong Greek Revival elements. The raised pattern is set on an anthemion-shaped, curved, leaf, and there are rosettes set either side of the flower cluster.

This example is simply marked with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," "Pat. 1870," and the name of the retailer,... Click for details

Tilden-Thurber Co. Heavy Sterling Silver Open Bowl
click for details
A Providence, Rhode Island guild level retailer founded in the mid 19th century with principals related by marriage to the Gorham family, Tilden-Thurber Company was throughout its history a source of high quality silver offerings.

Such is represented in this 7" diameter, 1 1/8" high, very heavy at 11.4 T. oz., open bowl. It is stamped on the underside "Tilden-Thurber," "Sterling," and "943," and likely dates from early in the 20th century.

It has a flat bottom, with an eight lobed wall,... Click for details

Exotic Shiebler Sterling Silver Wine Taster or Nut Spoon
click for details
George Shiebler's work is nothing if not imaginative and it often inspires speculation about design sources and function.

That is the case with this 5 7/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., presumably wine taster, or possibly nut spoon, with a likely late 19th century date.

It has an oversized, seemingly carved, roughly rectangular, 3 1/2" by 2 1/4", handle.

The design is enigmatic, and could trace to multiple origins.

Overall the imagery suggests it found inspiration in Aztec themes.... Click for details

It is an early example of Whiting's "Lily," marked with the company's lion logo, "Sterling," and "Pat. App. For."

Krider & Biddle, Philadelphia, Bright Cut Coin Silver Mug

One of Philadelphia's most prominent 19th century silversmiths, Peter L. Krider operated as sole manufacturer and in several partnerships over his career.

This mug is stamped with the "crossed K & B" symbol for the "Krider & Biddle" partnership, along with the model number "433."

There has been some difference of opinion about the exact dates of this pairing. The most recent, and likely most reliable, scholarship on Philadelphia silversmiths has been offered in a volume by Catherine... Click for details

Old Tiffany

Rare Duhme "Homeric" Hammered Sterling Silver Bon Bon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2747f   $235.00

Rare Duhme
click for details
An 1880s pattern characterized by irregular forms, hammered surfaces, and classical, as well as sometimes Aesthetic, imagery, "Homeric" aka "Etruscan" is strongly associated with George Shiebler.

This example, a 4 3/8" long, 1.1 T. oz., bon bon is unusual in two aspects.

One, it was produced by Cincinnati's "Duhme & Co." whose name is imprinted on the reverse. This is an unexpected source.

Two, rather than featuring a figure from Greek or Roman mythology as is typical of "Homeric,"... Click for details
