Offered is a good early American coin silver table spoon circa 1810-25 by well-known silversmith Thomas McConnell, who worked from about 1797 to 1818 in Wilmington, Delaware (with a brief stint in Baltimore in 1814 or so), and then in Richmond, Virginia from 1818 until his death in 1825. This piece could have been made in either location as McConnell had known production under taxation in both locations, though the majority of his work that has a provenance points to a Delaware origin.

Offered is a very fine and scarce early American coin silver fish slice or server in the Kings pattern, by the noted Philadelphia firm of Robert and William Wilson, working circa 1825-50.

Gorham "Fontainebleau" Sterling Silver Youth Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2800f   $40.00


click for details
A highly trumpeted design at the time of its introduction in 1880, Gorham's figural "Fontainebleau" quickly established itself as one of the company's foremost patterns, and it remains so today.

This example is a 6" long, just under .9 T. oz., youth fork. It is an early example, stamped with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," and the word "Copyrighted" set on the edge of the handle.

Its age is further evidenced by the inscription on the reverse, which reads in fine script... Click for details

Gorham 1902 Heavy Solid Sterling Silver Sealing Set Desk Tray
Silver : Sterling : Hollowware

Old Friends  
2798f   $235.00


click for details
Part of a desk set made by Gorham, this 9 1/2" long by 3 1/2" wide, weighty at 5.3 T. oz., tray is identified in the company's 1902 catalogue as a "sealing set tray" (see image 2).

It appears to be a pen tray, and is indeed very similar to the item alongside it identified as that, but late Victorian sensibilities provided for separate items for each functional need of the time.

It is particularly handsome and intricately detailed. The motif appears to be taken from English court style,... Click for details

Wood & Hughes Aesthethic Sterling Silver Pickle Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2795f   $55.00


click for details
Not a full flatware line, this singularly designed 6 1/4" long, .9 T. oz., pickle fork made by Wood & Hughes dates circa 1880.

The pattern is clearly rooted in Aesthetic sensibilities, with a marine theme. There are two shell motifs, one in the heel of the central of three tines, and one at the tip of the handle.

Radiating lines fan out from the broad, angular, handle shoulders, and meet a series of ripples that evoke waves, which probably not without coincidence, resemble Tiffany's... Click for details

Offered is a very good early American coin silver teaspoon by little-known maker John Reynolds (1770-1832), working from the 1790s through 1808 and probably much later.

This mark is shown in several reference works on Maryland silver. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. ... Click for details

Offered is a very rare example of the output of the partnership of noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony and his son Michael. This partnership was short-lived, lasting only from 1810-14. The two spoons here were used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" despite the rubbing of the marks, due to the extreme rarity of the mark of this partnership. The spoons are each also marked with the manufacturer's mark of Thomas Harper (working circa 1811-17), who also made silver for (Jean)... Click for details

A 5 7/8" long, 1.0 T. oz. item, this is an early production example of Alvin's Art Nouveau pattern informally known as "OOB," short for "Old Orange Blossom."

Early pieces distinguish themselves from later ones (and fakes) by their exceptionally fine detail and finish. The handle is up-tipped, which is another feature associated with older examples; subsequent issues had flat handle ends.

A mint condition estate item, this small chipped beef fork possesses every quality for which this... Click for details
