Rare Crested Pair of Philadelphia Coin Silver Spoons - G. K. Childs
click for details
Offered is a rare example of early American coin silver flatware made in an English style, with proportions, weight and engraving appropriate to that taste. Crested American coin silver after the Revolution is for obvious reasons fairly uncommon; spoons made to match English sets are even more scarce. Another distinguishing feature of these spoons, in addition to the pattern and the engraved armorials of a dove of peace, is the unpublished mark for George K. Childs of Philadelphia. Hollan's...

Tiffany

In his benchmark work, "Tiffany Silver Flatware," William Hood traces the name evolution of the pattern most commonly known as "Saratoga."

The company's third line, it was originally issued as "King's" or "King" in 1870, sometimes referred to as "Old King" to distinguish it from the later "English King." It was briefly reissued in 1908, then called "Cook," and finally again reintroduced in 1956 under the name "Saratoga" by which it is known today.

This example is from the earliest... Click for details
