Durgin

Chrysanthemum was a favored theme for silver manufacturers in the late 19th century, leading into the Art Nouveau period, and Tiffany and Durgin arguably produced the standard bearers for the motif.

This example by Durgin is a 5 1/2" long sauce or cream ladle. A heavy line, this seems especially so at nearly 2.0 T. oz.

It exhibits all the exuberance of design that has made the pattern so popular, with the dense floral clusters tumbling into the bowl. The bowl is deep, has flanged... Click for details

Meriden Britannia Hammered Sterling Footed Dish

Meriden Britannia had been a well-established company producing quality silverplate for half a century when it entered the sterling market with the purchase of Wilcox & Evertsen in 1895. Shortly thereafter the whole firm became a part of International Silver Company, but the use of the MB nameplate continued until about 1930.

This open dish likely dates from early in the 20th century. Contemporary catalogs identity the form as a mayonnaise bowl. It stands 3" at the highest, is 5 1/2"... Click for details

Early Durgin

Erroneously attributed by Tere Hagen in her reference work on flatware identification to Reed & Barton, this floral pattern is an early line pattern that was produced by William Durgin. Hagen calls it "Spray" but there is no documentation to that effect. The design features a charming bouquet of flowers, leaves, and grasses tied in a bow.

Examples of this show up in both coin and sterling silver, and only occasionally with the Durgin name or mark. This is stamped "Sterling" and "Pat.... Click for details
