Mug with uniquely American agricultural motif
click for details
In 1825, the Erie Canal opened, sending to NYC and beyond the agricultural riches of Ohio and ultimately the entire midwest. For 10 years -- from 1825-35 -- this cornucopia was celebrated in the arts, including the art of silvermaking. The basket-of-flowers and sheaf-of-wheat flatware patterns are examples; so too is this mug with its band of farm produce and equipment -- corn-filled wagon, barn, windmill, beehives, farm house, corn crib, scythe, rake, and a sheaf-of-wheat design repeated 10...

Gorham Large Aesthetic Sterling Silver Master Salt
click for details
Stamped with the date symbol for 1891, the Gorham lion, anchor, G, the word "Sterling," and the number "25," this large open salt stands 1 3/4" high, measures 2 5/8" across, and weighs a substantial 2.2 T. oz.

The design is Aesthetic in nature, with a repeating cascade of what appear to be breaking waves encircling the convex body. This theme may also relate to Gorham's "Narragansett" and related series of patterns of roughly the same period. The top has a pie crust edge, while the base is... Click for details

Whiting "Persian" Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon

Old Friends  
1669f   $85.00

Whiting
click for details
Dating from 1880, Whiting's "Persian" is a Moresque design deriving from the same sensibilities that generated Tiffany's pattern of the same name, as well as Whiting's own "Arabesque" and Gorham's "Hindostanee" among others. This example is a 7 1/2" long, 1.5 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon. It has the plum-shaped bowl with flanged rim and central rib that Whiting used across several lines of the period. Persian has a reserve area at the front of the handle which is a natural location for an... Click for details

Place pieces are much rarer than servers in this grand old Durgin pattern whose name is a subject of some disagreement, which leads me to believe that not many were produced.

George Sharp c. 1870 Sterling Silver Sauce Ladle
click for details
While unnamed, this c. 1870 design by George Sharp is quite similar to Gorham's "Louis XIV" and Knowles' "Emperor," both of the same period. It is double die struck, meaning the pattern appears on both sides of the piece. This example is a 6 1/2" long, 1.2 T. oz. sauce ladle. The handle is slender and elongated looking, and is joined to a 2" diameter, round shell bowl with a scalloped rim and a flat bottom. This is finished on both sides with a bright gold wash that extends up to the lower... Click for details
