Exotic George Shiebler Sterling Silver Wine Taster
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
2753f   This item is currently being auctioned


click for details
George Shiebler's work is nothing if not imaginative and it often inspires speculation about design sources and function.

That is the case with this 5 7/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., presumably wine taster, with a likely late 19th century date.

It has an oversized, seemingly carved, roughly rectangular, 3 1/2" by 2 1/4", handle.

The design is enigmatic, and could trace to multiple origins.

Overall the imagery suggests it found inspiration in Aztec themes. Yet within the detail,... Click for details

Krider & Biddle, Philadelphia, Bright Cut Coin Silver Mug

Old Friends  
2750f   $145.00


click for details
One of Philadelphia's most prominent 19th century silversmiths, Peter L. Krider operated as sole manufacturer and in several partnerships over his career.

This mug is stamped with the "crossed K & B" symbol for the "Krider & Biddle" partnership, along with the model number "433."

There has been some difference of opinion about the exact dates of this pairing. The most recent, and likely most reliable, scholarship on Philadelphia silversmiths has been offered in a volume by Catherine... Click for details

Old Tiffany "English King" Sterling Silver Gravy Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2749f   $225.00


click for details
An early example, this gravy ladle is marked "Tiffany & Co.," "Sterling," "Pat. 1885," and "M," this last mark dating it no later than 1891.

The pattern is "English King," which is typically heavy, as is the case with this item. It measures 7 1/4" long and weighs a massive 3.7 T. oz.

It is in immaculate estate condition and without a monogram or removal of same. Pattern detail remains well-defined. The finish is brilliant. The bowl is without dents, dings, or nicks.

Rare Duhme "Homeric" Hammered Sterling Silver Bon Bon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2747f   $185.00


click for details
An 1880s pattern characterized by irregular forms, hammered surfaces, and classical, as well as sometimes Aesthetic, imagery, "Homeric" aka "Etruscan" is strongly associated with George Shiebler.

This example, a 4 3/8" long, 1.1 T. oz., bon bon is unusual in two aspects.

One, it was produced by Cincinnati's "Duhme & Co." whose name is imprinted on the reverse. This is an unexpected source.

Two, rather than featuring a figure from Greek or Roman mythology as is typical of "Homeric,"... Click for details

There is some rather sloppy soldering on the beaded border beneath the spout (I do not believe this to be a repair) which we show in agonizing detail, see image four, and the overall color indicates that there may have been either a removal or some machine polishing at one... Click for details

Alvin "Edward VII" Large & Heavy Sterling Silver Cold Meat Fork
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

2718f   $135.00


click for details
A "noble" pattern both in theme and presentation, and not so readily found, Alvin's 1899 "Edward VII is nearly without peer in the realm of silver patterns. The design is singular. The only near match is Whiting's "Heraldic," while a weak equivalent is Baker-Manchester's "Spartan."

All three feature a knight's helmet at the handle end, which is also embellished with scrolling acanthus leaves. Alvin's is the most robust of the three iterations, as is evidenced by the scale of this serving... Click for details
