Sharp for Tiffany "Ball End" Sterling Silver Long Salad Serving Set

Old Friends  
3070f   $565.00

This salad serving fork and spoon have a double provenance that bespeaks the finest of mid 19th century silver manufacturing and retailing.

Made by George Sharp of Philadelphia, they are stamped with his "lion, S, lion" emblem, as well as "Tiffany & Co.," who would have retailed this pair about the mid 1860s. Presumably they are sterling rather than coin silver, given that Tiffany early on required this.

They are exceptionally large items, with the fork measuring 10 3/4" long and... Click for details

Paul Bang Danish Modern Sterling Silver Pastry Server
Silver : Sterling

Old Friends  
3066f   $135.00

Biographical information for Danish silversmith Paul Bang is difficult to unearth, although one online source lists his working dates 1935-80.

He evidently designed a considerable amount of quality jewelry, and less so, flat and holloware, based on the ratio of what internet searches yield.

Although not identified as a worker for Georg Jensen, his name frequently seems to surface in conjunction with that renowned maker. His work is decidedly Danish Modern, in a Jensenesque manner. ... Click for details
