Rare Duhme "Homeric" Hammered Sterling Silver Bon Bon

Old Friends  
2747f   $235.00

Rare Duhme
click for details
An 1880s pattern characterized by irregular forms, hammered surfaces, and classical, as well as sometimes Aesthetic, imagery, "Homeric" aka "Etruscan" is strongly associated with George Shiebler.

This example, a 4 3/8" long, 1.1 T. oz., bon bon is unusual in two aspects.

One, it was produced by Cincinnati's "Duhme & Co." whose name is imprinted on the reverse. This is an unexpected source.

Two, rather than featuring a figure from Greek or Roman mythology as is typical of "Homeric,"... Click for details

J.E. Caldwell, Philadelphia, Engraved Coin Silver Preserve Spoon

Elegant on several counts, this 7" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon traces to Philadelphia. It is stamped "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for that City's carriage trade firm, but was likely made by one of several major local manufacturers.

The handle end is broad, with a slightly tipt... Click for details
