Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2293   $350.00

For our first listing of 2018, let's return to some good old fashioned pattern silver, a subject in which few folks seem to have any interest but we'll give it a shot because I'm a glutton for punishment and thrive on rejection.

Retailed by Boston's own late lamented and very elegant Bigelow Kennard, this implement is 8 5/8 inches long, weighs 2.76 Troy ounces, has no monogram and is in excellent condition. If memory serves me correctly, this is the first pea spoon we've ever offered in... Click for details

Alvin "Cippendale Old" Reticulated Sterling Silver Jelly Cake Server
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3378f   $145.00


click for details
Charming items, and generally one of the harder to find (or not even available) serving pieces in most patterns, jelly cake servers are characterized by their long, narrow, trowel-like, blades.

This 8 5/8" long, approximately 1.6 T. oz., solid silver, example by Alvin is true to form, with a handsomely cut and engraved, slightly cupped, 4" long by 1 5/16" at the widest, pointed serving end.

The pattern is the company's turn of the 20th century "Cippendale Old."

Like the blade, the... Click for details

Offered is a lovely sterling silver and baleen toddy ladle, measuring a full fifteen inches in length and weighing a good fifty grams. This piece is quite long for the period in which it was made, probably between 1780 and 1850.

Given that it is not hallmarked, it could be either Scottish provincial, or... Click for details

Extremely Rare Philadelphia Coin Silver Spoon c.1785 by Richard Parker
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware : 18th Century

Cliff Nunn - Antique Silver and Decorative Arts  
20180107-12   Sold


click for details
Offered is a very good, and possibly unique, early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known silversmith Richard Parker, working briefly circa 1785 and then disappearing from the records. According to Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" (the mark on this particular spoon was used for that book), birdbacks by Parker are known, so he may have had some success in the field for a brief time. However, this is the only example of Parker's work that I've ever seen. This piece measures about 5... Click for details

Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is... Click for details

Polhhamus "Ionic" Sterling Silver Place Spoon Retailed by Tiffany & Co
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3374f   $34.00


click for details
One of Tiffany's favored suppliers before it began to produce its own silver, was New York City's John Polhamus, who was the manufacturer of this 7" long, heavy at 1.6 T. oz., dessert or place spoon.

The pattern is "Ionic," patented in 1860, as marked on the reverse. Other identifiers include "J.P.," "Tiffany & Co.," and "Sterling." Tiffany was early to require a sterling, rather than the then dominant coin, standard.

"Ionic" is double die struck, meaning the design appears on both... Click for details
