Baltimore Retailed Gorham Figural
click for details
Dating c. 1860, "Bust" is one of those patterns that helped created what might be called Gorham's first "golden age" of design.

The defining feature of the line is a cast "bust" that surmounts the lengthy, square handle. There is some variation from piece to piece, and in this case, the image is of a female looking slightly sideways.

A product of the Classical Revival movement of the period, the figure sits atop a pedestal base, much as she might be presented in a museum or salon, or in... Click for details

Good Early Detroit, Michigan Coin Silver Tablespoon, Charles Piquette

Offered is a good American coin silver table spoon bearing the mark of Charles Piquette, silversmith and gold pen manufacturer of Detroit.

Piquette, were trained by their father in the silversmith's profession, but it is more likely this spoon was manufactured by someone else and retailed by Charles Piquette, as his focus seems to have been on the...

Unusual Coin Silver Teaspoon by Joseph Shoemaker of Philadelphia

Offered is an unusual example of an early American coin silver spoon made in the workshop of Joseph Shoemaker but also struck with a large mark of a "T" - the mark could be a journeyman's, but is so large and placed in such a way as to undercut Shoemaker's maker's mark. As such it is unlikely the mark was on the spoon when it was first marked by Shoemaker. It is possible the spoon was resold by someone else, but the most likely explanation is that it was an inventory stamp within the family. ... Click for details
