Flawless Old Alvin
click for details
Issued in 1902, Alvin's "Raphael" stands forward as one of the most commanding figural designs coming out of the Art Nouveau era.

This 6" long, weighty at nearly 1.2 T. oz., teaspoon dates early in the line history, as evidenced by the inscription on the reverse, which reads "Kathryn 1904" in script.

It is in mint condition, likely never used. Every detail of the intricate design is fully and clearly articulated. The satin gray finish shows not even the lightest scratch. The bowl is... Click for details

Gorham
click for details
Dating from the last decade of the 19th century, Gorham's "Virginia" is essentially a pointed antique design with beaded edging, front and back sides.

This piece is a 6 1/2" long sugar sifter with an oval 2" by 2 1/2" bowl. It is remarkably heavy, weighing 2.7 T. oz., resulting in an usually thick handle and substantial bowl.

The rather strict bluntness of the design is offset by the delicate, patterned piercing in the gold finished bowl.

It is without a monogram or removal and in... Click for details

Watson
click for details
Measuring 8 3/16" long and weighing approximately 1.3 T. oz., this lettuce fork bridges two related forms.

It is more substantial than the diminutively scaled, delicate tine, pieces used for soft lettuce, but it is not as robust as a salad serving fork.

The lengthy handle is the proportion of a lettuce fork, but more substantial. The tines, two of which are splayed and one barbed, are relatively wide and joined to a cupped, pierced heel, but still smaller than regular salad servers. ... Click for details

Offered is a very scarce example of the work of Philadelphia silversmiths Jacob Brittin and (probably) William White, circa 1800-10. This partnership appears to have been around that time based upon Jacob Brittin's working dates, and the style of this spoon. This mark on this piece was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan and the only other documented example of the work of this firm, which didn't last long enough to leave a record in city directories or tax lists, is in the...

Offered is a good California coin silver cup retailed by Joseph Brothers & Company, working in San Francisco circa 1852-59. In 1854 this firm was located at 149 Montgomery Street. Like most San Francisco coin silver hollowware, this piece was manufactured on the East Coast (in this case by Gorham) and retailed by jewelers in watchmakers. Joseph Brothers & Co. was a relatively minor firm, and their mark is not seen that often. This piece is nicely engraved with a period monogram in a central... Click for details

Offered is a very scarce early American coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of Charles (Carl) W. Westphal (Westphall), a silversmith, goldsmith and watch-case maker working in Philadelphia circa 1799-1821. Westphal was born in Germany circa 1776 and died in Philadelphia in 1821. He seems to have focused on making watch cases, as his silver flatware seems to be virtually non-existent.
