Heavy Forks by James H. Kelly of Pottsville and Lebanon
click for details
Offered is a set of three heavy coin silver table forks by little-known Pottsville and Lebanon, Pennsylvania jeweler James H. Kelly. The first mention I have found of Kelly is a newspaper advertisement run in 1846 by Kelly, seeking an apprentice watchmaker to work with him in Pottsville. Mr. Kelly stayed in Pottsville until at least the late 1850s, as his son was born in Pottsville in 1855 and the family relocated to Lebanon, PA when the son was "quite small." In Lebanon, James H. Kelly... Click for details

Little is known about Aunspaugh's life, and only a few teaspoons are known as evidence of his work. This spoon probably dates to... Click for details

Tiffany produced various engraved designs overlaid on an "Antique" pattern ground. This iteration, aka "Custom Engraved," essentially stands alone as a distinct pattern.

It is deeply and intricately chased, and as Carpenter notes in his volume "Tiffany Silver," "exceedingly heavy." He also confirms that it is "deeply engraved" and dates it from the 1890s. That dating may explain some of the Aesthetic qualities of the design, namely the fern-like elements that form the margins around the... Click for details
