Alvin "Nuremburg" Figural Sterling Silver Butter Pick
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Alvin
click for details
Patented in 1903, "Nuremburg" appears to have borrowed some of the body of skills that generated such other enduring Alvin Art Nouveau designs as "Raphael," and "Old Orange Blossom," but takes those elements in a different direction.

The central feature of the pattern is a satyr's face that occupies the portion just below the reserve located on the slightly upturned end of the handle. Such imagery may be connected to 16th sculpture subjects associated with this German city.

A "Chinese Export" piece, it is stamped with four pseudo hallmarks used by "Wongshing," aka "Wong Shing," located in Canton c. 1810-35 according to one source, and 1820-60 by another source.

Silver standards vary for Export silver, but it broadly conforms to sterling.

Export is generally derivative of English design, and that is true for this which is Georgian in manner, with a down-turned, reverse tipt end, and... Click for details

Lovely Crested English Sterling Cauldron Salt and Matching Salt Spoon

The salt spoon is in a Victorian die-struck pattern and measures about 3... Click for details

Mansfield later moved in with his brother and was working as a watchmaker, silversmith,... Click for details

Superb Set of Six Fiddle & Shell Pattern Spoons by Jesse Owen, Phila.
click for details
Offered is an excellent and rare example of the work of Jesse Owen of Philadelphia, working in that city in the late 1830s and 1840s. There were actually several individuals named Jesse Owen in Philadelphia, and Hollan's "Philadelphia Silversmiths" accidentally put the picture of this mark with the Jesse Owen who was a refiner by about 1805 and disappears from the listings by 1817. It is unlikely these spoons were made by that man, but rather by the Jesse Owen working at 167 N. 2nd between... Click for details

Coin Silver Teaspoon by Granville W. Lukens of Philadelphia and NJ

Offered is a good American coin silver spoon probably made in Philadelphia circa 1850 and retailed by Granville W. Lukens, a Quaker born in Bucks County who appears to have been a peddler/merchant rather than a trained silversmith. After a short period in Philadelphia around 1850, he seems to have settled in Burlington County, NJ. The mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan.

Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon circa 1850 bearing the maker's mark G.H.LEEDS for either Gideon Howard Leeds, watchmaker of Philadelphia working until about 1842-43, or his son Gideon Howard Leeds II, working in Cumberland County, New Jersey per the 1850 and 1860 censuses, and then in Chester County, PA per the 1870 and 1880 censuses. Based on the style of the piece, my guess would be that this is the work of the son. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs... Click for details

Offered is a rare example of the output of the short-lived partnership of Baltimore jewelers William D. Shurtz and Ira C. Lyon working in Baltimore at 107 Baltimore Street between 1845 and 1846. Perhaps because of the brevity of their partnership, these men are not well recorded working together; however, they published announcements of the commencement and the dissolution of their partnership in the Baltimore Sun, which I can supply if interested. Shurtz & Lyon was succeeded by Blake & Lyon... Click for details
