Blanchard B09
click for details
The mark "B09" was adopted by the well-regarded Arts & Crafts silversmith George Blanchard when he established his own workshop in Gardiner, Massachusetts, independent of Arthur Stone for whom he worked until that date. He was joined by sons Porter and Richard, with Porter moving to California in 1923, shortly to be followed by his father and brother.

This example is a 6 3/8" long, just over .7 T. oz., horseradish spoon in the "Cornwallis" aka "1800 Square" pattern. With its angular end... Click for details

Unusual Durgin

Not readily found, this 5 1/2" long, just above .8 T. oz., fork is variously identified as terrapin or ramekin. To be sure it could serve either purpose.

It takes its character from the fanciful, scalloped shoulder, cupped heel, bowl with four short tines.

The pattern is Durgin's 1891 "Watteau," referencing a French painter whose name became identified with a style deriving from the rococo. This piece embodies some of the style elements of these schools. It has an asymmetrical shape... Click for details

Gorham
click for details
This pattern is identified in the Gorham archives (housed at Brown University and cataloged by scholar Sam Hough) as "Old English." It is commonly referred to, however, as "Seal Top" after the round, flat disk that surmounts the end of the faceted shank, which in turn follows after a traditional "old English" form.

Almost never marked, it frequently goes unrecognized for what it is, namely coin silver produced by the above maker. Wood & Hughes made a nearly identical pattern with the same... Click for details

1868 Gorham

One of Gorham's earliest line patterns, "Rosette" dates from 1868, the first year that Gorham went fully to a sterling rather than coin silver standard.

Indeed, this is stamped "Sterling," along with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, and "Pat. 68."

The pattern takes its name from the six petal flower element set in a circle. This motif was widely employed in the period, commonly showing up on furniture and incorporated in architectural design detail.

Canadian pseudo hallmarks frequently mirror their English counterparts even more closely than American ones do, and that is the case with this 5 5/8" long, just under .5 T. oz., silver tea, or actually coffee, spoon.

It is stamped with a crown, a bust, a lion passant, and the letters "IM" and "NB." The letters stand for J. Munro and New Brunswick (Canada) respectively, while the symbols look very much like hallmarks for Sheffield, England.

Munro's dates are from the 1810s to the 1860s. ... Click for details
