The pattern is "Armor," one of Whiting Manufacturing Company's earliest full line designs, issued in 1871. It incorporates acanthus leaf elements, an area of scaling that is perhaps intended to evoke chain mail, and other details that are Gothic Revival in style.

Rare Very Early Old English Pattern Crested Soup Ladle Circa 1755
Silver : Sterling

20161101-01   $375.00

Rare Very Early Old English Pattern Crested Soup Ladle Circa 1755
click for details
Offered is a lovely and extremely rare example of the Old English pattern in the first few years of its development. The first moves away from the Hanoverian pattern were with the larger serving pieces, such as this soup ladle, and with some forks. The primary reason for this shift was the discomfort of using pieces like soup ladles with the turned-up handles of the Hanoverian pattern; the turned-down end of the Old English pattern was simply more comfortable in the hand.

This piece bears... Click for details

Myrick, Roller & Holbrook Cast Sterling Reticulated Serving Spoon

Located in Philadelphia, the firm of Myrick, Roller & Holbrook, had a short history extending from the late 1880s to early 1900s.

It was a producer of souvenir spoons, as well as a limited line of flatware, of which this 8 1/2" long, 2.3 T. oz., is a characteristic example.

It is a cast piece, rather than die struck, which is the typical method for producing flatware. Casting is the more complicated process of the two and enables a level of precision and depth of detail not otherwise... Click for details

Offered is a good pair of American coin silver teaspoons bearing the mark of John Shaffner of Lancaster, about whom little appears to be known.

He appears to have been in business between about 1825-30 and 1850 or so. This pair of teaspoons has his mark, and each is engraved with a period monogram of "BH".... Click for details
