Early Georgian Sterling Silver Onslow Pattern Stuffing Spoon c.1768-73

Offered is a fine and rare example of a period George III "Onslow" or "Scroll" pattern stuffing or platter spoon, sometimes also called a gravy spoon. This pattern is highly sought after, to the point that there are many later alterations out there. However, those spoons are not generally joined in the same way the period Onslow serving pieces were; a period spoon should have a scarf joint joining the cast scroll end to the stem, as this spoon does (see pictures). And, this spoon bears the... Click for details

Dating c. 1860, "Bust" is one of those patterns that helped created what might be called Gorham's first "golden age" of design.

The defining feature of the line is a cast "bust" that surmounts the lengthy, square handle. There is some variation from piece to piece, and in this case, the image is of a female looking slightly sideways.

A product of the Classical Revival movement of the period, the figure sits atop a pedestal base, much as she might be presented in a museum or salon, or in... Click for details
