E. Shaw, Philadelphia, Coin Silver Tablespoon
click for details
Multiple sources identify a single Edward Shaw as a Philadelphia silversmith, but none of them offers a mark.

Brix lists his dates 1825-30, which would be consistent with the style of this 8 3/8" long, nearly 1.3 T. oz., tablespoon stamped "E. Shaw" in a hatched cartouche. This would seem to provide a conclusive attribution. Catherine Hollan's publication "Philadelphia Silversmiths" is the most recent entry about Philadelphia silver and she indicates the 1850 and 1860 censuses located Shaw... Click for details

Scare, Original Towle

This 6" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz., three tine pickle fork is a place piece and not a serving item. It is an early, and apparently not readily found, form in Towle's "Old Colonial" line.

This example is in immaculate condition and is without a monogram or removal. It retains an original gold wash, which apart from some rubbing wear on the backside where the heel rests, is fully intact.

Marks are the Towle emblem, "Sterling," "925/1000," and an imprinted "Pat. 1895."

Gorham
click for details
A figural design, Gorham's "Old Baronial" imagery is evocative of the English court. The dominant element is a lion's head that appears on the end of handle. Other components include fruit, scrolling, acanthus leaves, and a shell.

It is a heavy line, which is the case with this 6" long sugar spoon which weighs 1.2 T. oz. The bowl is pear-shaped, has a broad end, a cupped heel, decorated shoulders (which is a detail indicative of its age), and retains very slight traces of an original gold... Click for details

Heavy Shiebler

As with so much of the design product of George Shiebler, "Victoria" falls into a style of its own.

It has a border of what appears to be a repeating buds with tendril-like elements. This extends onto the shoulders of the bowl of this large, 8" long, heavy, 2.3 T. oz., gravy ladle. The motif bears a similarity to Georg Jensen's "Blossom," although "Victoria" predates that pattern by about twenty years.

There is a script "JEH" monogram on the handle. The bowl is plum-shaped and has a... Click for details

An elegant turn of the 20th century design, Durgin's "New Queens" incorporates double shell and scroll elements that reflect its classical roots.

Although Fessenden produced several Art Nouveau style floral designs early in the 20th century and named them after the respective flower portrayed, this perhaps chrysanthemum pattern in that series was an exception to that practice and was named "McKinley."

Measuring 7" long and weighing 1.1 T. oz., this example is a preserve or jelly spoon. The pattern is double die struck, meaning it appears on the front and back sides of the handle. It is high relief and highly detailed.
