Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3111f   $65.00

Marked only "Sterling," this circa 1865 "Kings" pattern is readily identified. Among other features, it incorporates a rosette in the design, which was a detail particular to Philadelphia's Peter L. Krider, later Krider & Biddle.

This attribution is further reinforced by the somewhat eggplant-shaped bowl with raised central ribbing on this 8 1/2" long, approximately 1.8 T. oz., berry or serving spoon. This is a form singular to Krider.

The interior of the bowl has a matte gold finish. ... Click for details

This salad serving fork and spoon have a double provenance that bespeaks the finest of mid 19th century silver manufacturing and retailing.

Made by George Sharp of Philadelphia, they are stamped with his "lion, S, lion" emblem, as well as "Tiffany & Co.," who would have retailed this pair about the mid 1860s. Presumably they are sterling rather than coin silver, given that Tiffany early on required this.
