This 6 7/8" long, quite heavy at nearly 1.4 T. oz., tea or dessert size fork may have been used as a youth piece, given the engaging inscription, which reads in fine script lettering, "To Carrie" on the front, and "From Mother Dec. 4th 98." on the reverse.

Given this line was first issued in 1895, this is an early piece in the history of the... Click for details

Wendell "Ariel" Cherub Figure Sterling Silver Sauce or Gravy Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3776f   $85.00


click for details
A rarely found, late 19th century design produced by the Chicago silver firm of Wendell Manufacturing Company, "Ariel" is a highly expressive pattern.

The central element is a cherubic-looking figure set against a dense, decorative background. It is strongly reminiscent of Dominick & Haff's "Labors of Cupid," which it predates by five years, 1895 vs. 1900, and somewhat akin to Gorham's 1888 "Versailles."

It is a multi-motif line, meaning the figural representation varies between... Click for details

Wood & Hughes "Zephyr" Solid Sterling Silver Small Cake Saw
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3775f   $120.00

Small, or even diminutive, for a cake saw, and charmingly so, this piece measures 8 11/16" long and weighs 1.3 T. oz.

It has a long, relatively narrow, blade, with a sawtooth upper edge, which is the requisite component for the form.

The pattern is Wood & Hughes' 1870s "Zephyr," which is a Renaissance Revival or Moorish inspired design. Indeed, the blade front on this is engraved in an arabesque pattern, which has Islamic style origins.

There is a fancy Old English "J" monogram... Click for details
