The handles are a tipt backside "Old English" design while the fronts are acid etched with a "Humpty Dumpty" figure on the spoon and... Click for details

These tablespoons have unusual shoulders and large, well-executed monograms of "CAW"... Click for details

International

The first decades of the 20th century saw a great flowering of flatware designs.

Alas many of these quite impressive patterns have become lost in the abundance of what came after, which may apply to International's "Duchesse" dating from 1907.

It is lavishly styled, vaguely derivative from a "Kings" motif but more embellished. The handle has a shell end surrounded by acanthus leaf detailing and is trimmed with a decorated beveled edge. This whole ensemble of design is repeated on the... Click for details

It is model number "39" according... Click for details
