A realistic portraiture of a climbing rose, Knowles' pattern by that name is best known for the beetle that is incorporated in the design on the lower portion of the handle.

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2803f   $42.00

Durgin
click for details
Dating from 1898, Durgin's "Orange Blossom" was the first of several Art Nouveau floral patterns that culminated with the company's spectacular "New Art" line.

Intricate and high relief like its successor designs, it is more two-dimensional in profile than they are.

The leaf and floral portraiture is more organic and naturalistic than Alvin's better known version of this same motif, "Old Orange Blossom" (OOB).

Durgin's is also less commonly found. Indeed this 5 3/8" long, just over... Click for details

After 1816, Edward Lownes and Henry Erwin continued on in separate, successful careers. The mark of this partnership is quite scarce, and the mark on the spoon offered here was used for the book...

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.

Watson "Govenor Dummer" Sterling Silver Berry Spoon

Watson

Derivative of the early 20th century Colonial Revival movement in design, the pattern on this 8 1/4" long, 2.1 T. oz., small berry, aka casserole, spoon is in fact named after a Colonial period governor of Massachusetts, William Dummer (1677-1761).

Issued in 1925, it is markedly similar to Towle's popular "Mary Chilton" which was introduced a decade earlier in 1912.

Sharing the same diamond-shaped handle, Watson's iteration is more elaborated than Towle's. Rather than plain, the handle... 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
