Fine Maryland? Tablespoon, Maker's Mark & Union Shield
click for details
Offered is a fine American coin silver table spoon circa 1825-50, marked "Jacob" in italicised letters in a conforming punch, with pseudo-hallmarks or manufacturer's marks of a Union shield and the letter "S". I've not come across a Union shield mark like this before, but think it is likely the work of a Maryland silversmith. George Jacob of Baltimore may be a possibility, but there may be other candidates. This piece has no monogram or sign of erasure. It measures about 8 7/8 inches in... Click for details

This pair of coin silver tongs measure a lengthy 6 1/4" long and weigh nearly 1.7 T. oz.

Stamped "Rockwell" along with a sheaf of wheat pseudo hallmark, this identifier is attributed to Edward Rockwell by both Louise Belden and John McGrew in their respective works on marks. He is to be distinguished from Samuel D. Rockwell with whom Edward was in partnership 1815-47, with some similarity of marks.

This item appears to date from Edward's early working years, 1803-14. It has a broad... Click for details

Tiffany
click for details
Tiffany produced various engraved designs overlaid on an "Antique" pattern ground. This iteration, aka "Custom Engraved," essentially stands alone as a distinct pattern.

It is deeply and intricately chased, and as Carpenter notes in his volume "Tiffany Silver," "exceedingly heavy." He also confirms that it is "deeply engraved" and dates it from the 1890s. That dating may explain some of the Aesthetic qualities of the design, namely the fern-like elements that form the margins around the... Click for details

Shiebler
click for details
A pattern that originated with New York's John Polhamus, "Diamond" was eventually absorbed into George Shiebler's stable of flatware patterns. Although patented in 1874, it carries forward many of the Gothic Revival design sensibilities of the 1860s, and successfully so.

This example is a 6 1/4" long, just over .6 T. oz., sugar spoon with a shell form bowl. It has an "MW" monogram inscribed on front of the handle.

It is in exceptionally fine condition, free of polishing wear and with a... Click for details

Large Gorham

At 5 3/4" long, this pair of tongs are exceptionally long and commensurately heavy at nearly 1.7 T. oz. Whether intended to be used for ice, they certainly could serve that purpose.

The pattern is Gorham's "Cottage," which according to company archives, was in active production for approximately forty years, beginning in 1861. As this pair are stamped "Sterling," they date post 1868 when Gorham adopted the sterling standard. Earlier examples of "Cottage" were made in coin silver. This is... Click for details

Josephy Seymour

Syracuse's Joseph Seymour's pattern flatware is well-documented and the inventory does not include the "Thistle" design on this 5 1/2" long, just touching 1.0 T. oz., teaspoon. It is thereby an unexpected rarity, and doubly so because of its impressively artful portraiture.

The design, die work, and finish are all to the highest standard. There is a central thistle blossom midway on the handle, and a pair at the tip, all surrounded by leaves. A pair of leaves also graces the backside of... Click for details
