Fessenden "McKinley" Sterling Silver Preserve Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Fessenden
click for details
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.

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

Alvin Figural
click for details
Patented in 1903, "Nuremberg" 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.

Gorham

Marked "Patent 1861," "Beaded" is one of Gorham's earliest line patterns. It was produced for a considerable period of time and made in both coin and sterling silver. This example is marked "Coin," so dates to 1868, the year Gorham went to sterling, or earlier.

It is a large, 9 1/4" long, approximately 2.5 T. oz., ice cream server. It has an oval blade with two ribs in the bottom, notched shoulders, a beveled edge, and a gold washed upper surface. This is shallowly concave and more of a... Click for details

Durgin "Louis XV" Sterling Silver Lettuce Fork

1908f   $55.00

Durgin
click for details
Issued in 1891, Durgin's "Louis XV" is a dense, rococo design that reflects quite a different, and arguably more engaging, interpretation of the motif from Whiting's much simpler pattern of the same name produced in the same year.

This example is a 7 7/8" long, relatively weighty 1.0 T. oz., lettuce fork. It originally had an overall gold finish, but much of that was polished away and now shows only partly on the handle. It remains essentially intact on the three tine serving end.
