Rare Mark, P.L. Taylor & Jones,
click for details
Multiple sources list silversmith and merchant Pardon L. Taylor, as born in Providence, Rhode Island, 1824, and working in Brooklyn, New York, where he died in 1860.

No reference, however, documents the "P.L. Taylor & Jones" mark on this large, 8 7/8" long, significant weight, 1.6 T. oz., "Tipt End" table or serving spoon, suggesting it was, like the man himself, a short-lived enterprise, and thus rare.

The piece is a superb example of what it is. Carefully honed and crafted, it... Click for details

Gorham
click for details
An enigmatic pattern held dear by collectors, Gorham's "Hamburg" was produced circa 1880, the same year that Gorham issued its equally sought after and unique "Hizen" and "Cairo" lines.

It is of singular character with little to nothing about the pattern that explains itself, including the source for the name.

Hand-hammered, with a sharp, chiseled surface, it has a twist handle stem.

While examples of this flawless condition, 5 5/8" long, approximately .7 T. oz., cocktail fork seem... Click for details

9 Matching Frank Smith

Issued in 1901 at the beginning of the Edwardian Period in English history, Frank Smith's "Federal Cotillion" is also known as "Edward VII." It is a relatively high style "Kings" pattern that with only minor differences is identical to Whiting's "King Edward," also introduced in 1901, suggesting that American silver manufacturers were pivoting off the end of the Victorian era in their design offerings.

This group is a matched set of eight oyster or seafood cocktail forks. Each one measures... Click for details

Polhamus for Tiffany

Dating from the 1860s and made by New York's John Polhamus, whose "J*P" mark appears on the backside, this 6 7/8" long, 1.3 T. oz., fork is also stamped "Tiffany & Co.," which retailed a good deal of Polhamus' silver before it instituted its own production in 1868. As Tiffany required, this is sterling (and so marked) when the predominant standard was still coin silver.

A place piece, it is a length that is commonly identified as for tea or dessert. The pattern is "French Thread," aka... Click for details
