Webster Silver Overlay on Glass 6
click for details
Measuring 6" in diameter and 1/8" high, this trivet is stamped "Webster Sterling" and with the company arrow through a "CW" on the edge. It is silver overlay engraved in a floral pattern on glass.

These were particularly popular in the first part of the 20th century, and that is the likely period for this.

It is in excellent condition. There are no chips or cracks in the glass. The silver is intact, free of lifting or marring.

Very Rare Tiffany

William Hood comments extensively on this unusual Tiffany "Vine" (Gourd), 5 13/16" long, .9 T. oz., spoon in his benchmark reference work, "Tiffany Silver Flatware."

He suggests it might be a pap spoon, noting it is a "rare and undocumented piece" that has "an unusually shaped bowl, . . . the sides tapering in width from 13/16 to 5/16 in., and forming a scoop. The narrowness of the scoop suggests it might be used to feed babies. This specimen is one of only three of this piece type we have... Click for details

Wood & Hughes "Celestial" Sterling Silver Tablespoon

Wood & Hughes
click for details
In the same genre as Whiting and Tiffany's "Japanese" and Wendt's "Bird," Wood & Hughes 1875 "Celestial" may be the most explicitly Asian inspired in its portraiture given the pagoda-like detailing around the handle end.

Otherwise the design follows after this group of patterns in featuring a bird image set amid a leafy surround. The degree of detail is precise and finely rendered, with all the elements laid upon a stippled ground.

This example is an 8 5/8" long, relatively heavy at 1.8... Click for details

Early Towle

Perhaps the least common of condiment servers (a category which includes mustard ladles and horseradish spoons), chow chow aka picalilli spoons characteristically have narrow, deep bowls, and often relatively long handles.

This 6 5/8" long, .9 T. oz., example is in "Old Colonial" by Towle. It is an early and fully authentic, i.e. original production, piece marked with the company emblem, "925/1000," "Pat. 1894," and the name of the retailer, "W. Arnold."

This silver youth fork measures 6 1/16" long and is weighty, at just over 1.0 T. oz. It is fully hallmarked for London, 1907, made by Martin & Hall & Co., Ltd. (RM over EH in a quatrefoil).

Offered is a very fine early American coin silver pair of master salt spoons by the short-lived partnership of Rowland Parry and James Musgrave, working in Philadelphia as Parry & Musgrave from 1792 to 1795. Silver bearing their mark is uncommon. These spoons are a very good example of an 18th century form, and are quite scarce from this era in American silver. Each bears the partnership's mark of P&M, and each has period engraved script monogram of RP to the front and a slightly later but... Click for details

Tiffany Applied Figure Sterling Silver Youth Spoon
click for details
A novel design, this 6 3/16" long, heavy, 1.2 T. oz., youth spoon was made by Tiffany & Co. as identified on the reverse. Other marks include "Sterling" and "T," this letter dating it 1892-1902.

The elements of the piece, however, are older than this range. The handle form is essentially Tiffany's "Antique" with chamfered edges. Portions of this are acid etched in a manner that suggests "Vine," specifically squash or cucumber, two of which are incorporated in the etching.

Kirk & Son 11 oz. Silver Heavy Chased Dessert Spoon

Baltimore assay standards were particular to that city and bore their own marks.

This 7 1/4" long, weighty at 1.6 T. oz., dessert or place spoon reflects that particularity. It is stamped "11 oz." which indicates a silver content between coin and sterling.

It is also marked "S.K & Son," for Samuel Kirk & Son. This combination of identifiers suggests a date circa 1830, with the standard mark passing out of use about then and this particular maker identification coming into use about... Click for details
