St. Joseph, Missouri Coin Silver Soup Ladle - Agricultural Soc. Prize!
click for details
Offered is a gorgeous American coin silver soup ladle from St. Joseph, MO silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler Charles Edwin Baldwin, Sr., circa 1855-65. Although Mr. Baldwin moved to St. Joseph circa 1850 and was the first silversmith in that town, the ladle should be from 1855 or later due to the engraving, which provides "N.W.A.S." over "Mo.", denoting the North-western Agricultural Society (of Missouri).

This Society was one of several formed by an 1855 Act of the Missouri State... Click for details

Introduced in 1885, Whiting's "Lily of the Valley" immediately established itself as an outstanding pattern, and has remained sought after ever since.

Sculptural in nature, it features a raised stalk of blossoms enveloped by leaves, which form the margins of the handle. The ground behind the blossoms is lined, again representative of the leaves, and this also serves as an enhancing design element.

In sum, it reflects influences from the innovative design sensibilities of the Aesthetic... Click for details

Whiting
click for details
A weighty 1.2 T. oz., this spoon measures 6 3/4" long, which is the length of a dessert or oval soup.

Two aspects of it, however, suggest it was a youth spoon.

One is obvious, specifically the engraving in the bowl, which reads, "JEFF Dec. 10. 90," which is likely a birth date.

The second feature is the dual sided gold wash on the bowl. This is an unusual embellishment for a place piece.

The pattern is Whiting's multi-motif "Berry," in this case elderberry, which is portrayed on... Click for details

The 1860s saw a proliferation of three dimensional designs that included a ball, sphere, knob, and perhaps scarcest of all, cube form end as found on this very large, 11 1/4" long, 3.5 T. oz., (likely vegetable) serving fork.

Made by Philadelphia's George Sharp, who is most associated with this style, and particularly so his "Ball End," it is stamped "Patent 1863," "G.S.," and "Sterling," on one of the facets of the six-sided handle.
