Unusual Durgin

Not readily found, this 5 1/2" long, just above .8 T. oz., fork is variously identified as terrapin or ramekin. To be sure it could serve either purpose.

It takes its character from the fanciful, scalloped shoulder, cupped heel, bowl with four short tines.

The pattern is Durgin's 1891 "Watteau," referencing a French painter whose name became identified with a style deriving from the rococo. This piece embodies some of the style elements of these schools. It has an asymmetrical shape... Click for details

Gorham

This pattern is identified in the Gorham archives (housed at Brown University and cataloged by scholar Sam Hough) as "Old English." It is commonly referred to, however, as "Seal Top" after the round, flat disk that surmounts the end of the faceted shank, which in turn follows after a traditional "old English" form.

Almost never marked, it frequently goes unrecognized for what it is, namely coin silver produced by the above maker. Wood & Hughes made a nearly identical pattern with the same... Click for details
