Coin Silver Teaspoon by T. & L. Cranson, Poplar Ridge, New York?

20200712-04   $19.50


click for details
Offered is an American coin silver teaspoon marked T.&L.CRANSON in a serrated rectangular punch, circa 1830-50. The T. Cranson in this mark is probably the same person as the T.P. Cranson working in Poplar Ridge, New York (see my other listings for a pair of spoons marked T.P.CRANSON and POPLAR RIDGE). That's about all I can surmise about this piece, which has a rubbed but legible maker's mark, and a period engraved owner's name of P. Jennings. This piece measures about 6 5/16 inches in...

Gorham "Knickerbocker Etched" Sterling Silver Forks & Spoons
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4285f   Please see description for pricing.


click for details
Basically an "Antique" form with a rounded, slightly upturned handle end, "Knickerbocker" was an early Gorham flatware line issued in 1870.

It is a relatively rare pattern that was produced to an elevated standard--of extra weight and exceptionally fine finishes--and was offered in two styles, "Plain" and "Etched."

Something of a legendary aura surrounds the pattern, with some thought the etched version was custom or made to order.

Available here are four place pieces, each acid etched... Click for details

This pair of 6" long tongs that weigh a sturdy near 2.0 T. oz., are consequential on several counts.

The wide arch has a gentle point on either side, where it accommodates an unusual crest, which is the second outstanding aspect of this. The crest shows a helmeted knight's shoulders and... Click for details
