Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
3366f   $135.00

Dating to the earliest decades of Gorham's history, these six, matched, coin silver, spoons are marked "Gorham & Webster," for a partnership that traces to 1831-37.

Each one measures 7 1/2" long, which is an unusual size by contemporary convention in that it is lengthier than a dessert spoon but not quite as long as a tablespoon. In their time, when large scale was favored, these would have served as standard place pieces.

click for details
Offered is a spare copy I picked up of a very important and useful reference book on the hallmarks of Naples, Italy, from the 15th through the 19th Centuries. Much of the antique domestic Italian silver that appears in the United States came with immigrants, and many of those came from Naples and other parts of Southern Italy as well as Sicily. As such, the book gets more use than one would think!

The book is: "I marchi dell'argenteria napoletana: Dal XV al XIX secolo" by Elio Catello... Click for details

For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite... Click for details
