Rare St. Louis Salt Spoon by Horace P. Woodbridge c1835
click for details
Offered is a very scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Horace P. Woodbridge, who appears to have worked in St. Louis around 1835. His mark is known on at least one piece that also bears a city mark of ST.LOUIS. See "Missouri's Silver Age" by Norman Mack, page 150. Mr. Woodbridge apparently died young at age 47; it is unknown how long he was able to make or mark silver. This salt spoon is quite small at about 3 1/2 inches in length, and weighs about 6 grams. Condition is... Click for details

Towle "Old Brocade" Solid Sterling Silver Tomato Server

Old Friends  
2280f   $85.00

Towle
click for details
Dating from 1932, Towle's "Old Brocade" incorporates Art Deco design elements embellished with an etched floral surface, the style of which would seem to explain the pattern name.

This example is a 7 1/2" long, just under 1.9 T. oz., tomato server. The solid silver (vs. stainless) broad blade has raised and scalloped shoulders and a slight center groove on the delicately reticulated flat area.

The backside of the piece is plain save for the marks, which include the Towle emblem,... Click for details

Reed & Barton "Columbia" Sterling Silver Jam Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2279f   $35.00

Reed & Barton
click for details
At 6 1/4", and weighing approximately 1.3 T. oz., this is slightly longer and heavier than a sugar spoon, and has a substantially larger bowl, suggesting it is for jam or jelly.

The pattern is "Columbia" by Reed & Barton. Issued in 1912, it is quite similar in style to Durgin's "Fairfax" which was introduced in 1910. The two designs may have originated from the same impulse, or Reed & Barton may simply have noted the popularity of Fairfax and wanted to provide the market with an... Click for details

length 12 7/8 inches, weight 4.11 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.

Alvin "Fleur-de-Lis" Sterling Silver Pierced Pea Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2278f   $150.00

Alvin
click for details
The name "Fleur-de-Lis," aka "Fleur-de-Lys,"seems misapplied to this pattern by Alvin as it is an expressive iris design rather than the stylized, three petal, lily motif that the name implies. A little probing does offer the French "fleur-de-lys-orris" for iris, so this may be the association.

The early 20th century design embodies all elements of the Art Nouveau mode, incorporating iris blossoms on the end and midpoint of the handle as well as the heel of the bowl of this 8 1/2" long, 2.2... Click for details

Circa 1860 Twist Handle Philadelphia Coin Soup Ladle

This 11 1/2" long, just under 4.2 T. oz., soup ladle incorporates several particularly appealing elements favored in mid 19th century American silver originating in sophisticated urban centers. In that regard, while marked only "Coin," the style of this piece rather conclusively suggests a Philadelphia source such as James Watts or one of his contemporaries.

It has a robust, twisted shank with a broad, scalloped edge, terminal. This is artfully engraved and bright cut in a period design... Click for details

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver table spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Harvey Lewis. Mr. Lewis is known for his Empire and late Neoclassical silver; his career spanned the period 1802-25, though he may have worked as late as 1827, whereupon he became ill and largely retired. He died about 1835. These tablespoons measure a little over 9 inches in length, and together weigh about 100 grams. They are monogrammed with a period engraved script "SJ" or ""SI". Condition...

Rare Tiffany Art Deco Sterling Silver Spoon and Fork

Unnamed, this Tiffany design is through and through Art Deco in style. It is much in the manner of "Century," a pattern issued in 1937 in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the firm. With its beaded detail and rounded top, however, it is more expressive yet than "Century."

Clean, heavy, and finely finished, these two examples reflect the modernistic sensibilities of the period.

One is a 6 1/4" long, 1.3 T. oz., presumably sugar, spoon. The other is an unusual form, 6 3/8" long,... Click for details
