Large Ball, Black
click for details
Stamped "Ball, Black & Co." for the prominent mid 19th century firm, this pie server is large scaled. It measures 10" long overall and is exceptionally heavy at 3.8 T. oz. The triangular blade is 4 1/2" long and 3" at the widest.

The handle has a period "Bead" pattern front, and curiously a "Thread" pattern on the reverse. There is a fancy, feathered script "CAC" monogram on the obverse, and what appears to be a "CAP" monogram on the reverse. Such details always raise the question of... Click for details

Ladd & Bigelow Coin Silver Teaspoon
click for details
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

William Burdick Early 19th c. Coin Serving Spoon

William Burdick Early 19th c. Coin Serving Spoon
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.

This piece is a 9 3/8" long, not quite 2.0 T. oz., table or serving spoon. The style, with a plain end, central rib back, and plain drop, suggests it was made during his Ithaca years, c. 1815-20. It has a... Click for details

Alvin Figural "Nuremburg" Sterling Silver Butter Pick
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Alvin Figural
click for details
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.

Marked with the Durgin "D," "Sterling," and the Hartford, Connecticut retailer's name, "D.H. Buell," this pair of tongs date from the late 19th century.

Gorham
click for details
Marked "Patent 1861," "Beaded" is one of Gorham's earliest line patterns. It was produced for a considerable period of time and made in both coin and sterling silver. This example is marked "Coin," so dates to 1868, the year Gorham went to sterling, or earlier.

It is a large, 9 1/4" long, approximately 2.5 T. oz., ice cream server. It has an oval blade with two ribs in the bottom, notched shoulders, a beveled edge, and a gold washed upper surface. This is shallowly concave and more of a... Click for details

Durgin "Louis XV" Sterling Silver Lettuce Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
1908f   $55.00

Durgin
click for details
Issued in 1891, Durgin's "Louis XV" is a dense, rococo design that reflects quite a different, and arguably more engaging, interpretation of the motif from Whiting's much simpler pattern of the same name produced in the same year.

This example is a 7 7/8" long, relatively weighty 1.0 T. oz., lettuce fork. It originally had an overall gold finish, but much of that was polished away and now shows only partly on the handle. It remains essentially intact on the three tine serving end.

Marked "Patent 1867" on the backside of the handle, and stamped with a lion, anchor, G, "Ionic" is one of Gorham's earliest full line patterns. It was also issued just before Gorham went from coin silver to a sterling standard in 1868 and examples of it are rather uncommon.

This example is a large, 8 1/2" long, 2.3 T. oz., serving spoon. It has a large, round bowl with a rippled base and notched shoulders. It is finished in a mostly intact, bright gold wash front and backsides. The piece... Click for details

Durgin "Scroll" Large Sterling Silver Sugar Tongs

Durgin

Something of a uncommon pattern, and a more intricate design than the name would imply, Durgin's 1886 "Scroll" has a repousse surface that features leaves, florals, and the namesake scrolls.

This example is a generously sized, 5" long, .9 T. oz. pair of sugar tongs. There is a fancy script "MAT" monogram on the arch. The gold washed talon grips are very finely rendered with detailed articulation on the inside as well as the outside surfaces.

The condition is excellent. Polishing wear... Click for details
