Watson
click for details
Watson produced an extensive line of fruit, floral, and even vegetable patterns around the turn of the 20th century that were exceptionally finely rendered and reflected Art Nouveau sensibilities.

An example from that series, this 6 1/8" long, heavy at nearly 1.2 T. oz., spoon has an elongated and pointed bowl and is probably for citrus.

The motif is grape, showing a large cluster of high relief fruit surrounded by leaves and sinuous vines. The backside repeats the theme in diminished... Click for details

Polhamus for Tiffany
click for details
Originally a retailer only and not a manufacturer, Tiffany relied upon a limited number of manufacturers to provide its store with silver flatware.

One of the favored suppliers was New York City's John Polhamus, who was the producer of this 7" long, heavy at 1.6 T. oz., dessert or place spoon.

The pattern is "Ionic," patented in 1860, as marked on the reverse. Other identifiers include "J.P.," "Tiffany & Co.," and "Sterling." Tiffany was early to require a sterling, rather than the... Click for details

a rare, diminutive example, 3 1/8 X 1 7/8 X just under 1/2 inches, weight 2.3 Troy ounces.

It is an unusual pleasure to find an object which is engraved ("J. Diprose, EsqR / from J.J.G. Bombay") with both a name and a location, to lend it an added sense of history.

This item is superb in both design and execution. Though we always hesitate to say "flawless condition," one would be hard-pressed to find fault. If your collection wants for a representative from Victorian era silver... Click for details

C. & A.W. Johnson, Albany,
click for details
Working with his brother, Alonzo, in Albany, New York, 1831-38, Chauncey Johnson is identified as a silversmith and jeweler.

In addition to the "C. & A.W. Johnson" for that partnership stamped on this 8 1/2" long, 1.5 T. oz., tablespoon, it also carries an "eagle, D, bust" pseudo hallmark. In his benchmark work on these marks, McGrew associates this with Hall and Hewson, also of Albany.

A straightforward, down-turned "Reverse Tipt," design, this is akin to much production of the period. ... Click for details

Gorham Brilliant Cut Glass 9

Gorham catalogs either side of the turn of the twentieth century illustrate items similar to this 9" diameter, 3 1/2" piece and identify them as "berry bowls." They have brilliant cut glass bodies with applied sterling silver rims.

This example is model number "D453M" as imprinted on the edge of the rim. Other marks include Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," and a date symbol for 1903. The rim is plain save for a beaded edge where it abuts the glass.

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

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

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

This 8 5/8" long, 1.5 T. oz., "Fiddle Tipt" tablespoon dates from the 1840s and is marked "J.C. Farnsworth" and "Boston."

It is engraved "Elvira." in script on the front of the handle and is in very good condition. The bowl has a bit of tip wear and some very shallow dimpling in... 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
