Fessenden

Although Fessenden produced several Art Nouveau style floral designs early in the 20th century and named them after the respective flower portrayed, this perhaps chrysanthemum pattern in that series was an exception to that practice and was named "McKinley."

Measuring 7" long and weighing 1.1 T. oz., this example is a preserve or jelly spoon. The pattern is double die struck, meaning it appears on the front and back sides of the handle. It is high relief and highly detailed. The bowl is... Click for details

Ladd & Bigelow Coin Silver Teaspoon

Ready citation for the "Ladd & Bigelow" mark on this 5 3/4" long, just over .5 T. oz., c. 1840 coin silver teaspoon is not available. Bigelow is a name most associated with Boston, while Ladd has numerous references in Providence, RI, Manchester, NH, and New York City. Geography therefore suggests New England, and Boston in particular. Undoubtedly the partnership was short-lived and the mark thereby uncommon.

The handle has a reverse tipt, down turned end, and an exposed drop on the bowl.... Click for details

Biographical material about William Pendleton Burdick, the maker of this spoon, indicates he was something of an itinerant. Born in Vermont about 1792, he worked in Hartford, Connecticut in various partnerships, then in Ithaca, New York, and finally in San Francisco, and died in Iowa.

Alvin Figural "Nuremburg" Sterling Silver Butter Pick

Alvin Figural

Patented in 1903, "Nuremberg" appears to have borrowed some of the body of skills that generated such other enduring Alvin Art Nouveau designs as "Raphael," and "Old Orange Blossom," but takes those elements in a different direction.

The central feature of the pattern is a satyr's face that occupies the portion just below the reserve located on the slightly upturned end of the handle. Such imagery may be connected to 16th sculpture subjects associated with this German city.
