The pleasing use of acid etching to define the floral surface of 'Clematis' (introduced in 1885) combines with delicate engraving of leaves and vine to give new life to a standard Old English pattern. The bowl is elongated with a suggestion of honeysuckle in the repousse treatment, and terminates in a soft point. It might have been used for pudding, but certainly shouldn't be limited to that! There are remains of gold wash in the bowl. Length is 9.25 in., the weight is 57 g., and there is a ...

Gorham introduced 'Old Baronial' in 1998, during the tenure of William Codman as chief of design at Gorham. Codman's background in restoration of medieval objects is evident in this pattern which invokes the revival of the Gothic period in Baronial Europe – in this case, the blending of a lion's head with foliate, scroll and floral motifs. The spoon is in very fine condition with no problems whatever, a touch over 8.5 in. long and it weighs 80 grams. The handle has a monogram of LR on the f...

Old French is a beautiful Gorham pattern patented in 1904 which was based on the early French thread, with the suggestion of a soft “tip” that marked the French prototype. Like its predecessor, Old French is heavy with simple elegance. There are 5 dinner knives (9.75 in.), and two groups – one of 5, and one of 2 – of luncheon knives (8.75 in.), all with old French stainless blades. The condition is good – that is, they have no splits or serious dents or scratches, but there are m...

'Plymouth' was introduced in 1911, at the time when tastes were turning from ornamental styles to Colonial Revival; it was a very popular pattern. Multiple threads outline the handle which terminates with a boss. The fork is in excellent condition – hardly, if ever – used, with no monogram or removal. It is 6-3/16 in. and weighs 32 g. It has the Gorham mark and 'sterling' on the reverse.

Clematis is a lovely pattern introduced by Gorham in 1885. It was first acid-etched – that is, the pattern is revealed by etching of the surface with an acid bath – and the details were then hand- engraved to provide the multi-textured surface that is characteristic of this pattern... there is the sense of a vine that follows the form of the spoon's upper handle, with the leaves and flowers springing from that vine. The almond-shaped bowl terminates in a point and retains a light but even ...

Nice example of Gorham's multi-motif pattern introduced in 1890. The French style implied by the pattern's name has Rococo elements that go well with the heart-shaped bowl which has a repousse “rat tail” extending nearly to its tip. There is a very, very faint remnant of a monogram D, but it's so shallow and worn (not removed) as to be almost indiscernible. Marked simply with the Gorham logo and the word “sterling.” The condition is excellent. Length is 7.25 inches and the weight 42 ...

The Gaylord Farm Sanatorium was a tuberculosis rehabilitation center in Wallingford, CT, and was run by New Haven County, CT. The Gaylord Silvercraft Workshop was established there in 1925 to provide vocational and occupational training for patients. It produced many items of jewelry and household / table items until its closing in 1944; those were sold in the Workshop store and to small dealers and stores. There have been catalogs compiled from annual reports showing the numbers of items mad...

This set of 6 stainless fish knives and forks probably dates from the early to middle part of the 20th Century. The form is Old English Tipt, a timeless pattern. Harrison Fisher has been a knife maker in Sheffield (England) for over 150 years. The set is very good quality – nicely balanced and in very good condition – I would guess they were little used. The knife is 8 in. and the fork is 6.75 in. They are marked with HF & Co. (the mark used after 1900) , “S” in a shield, and “Eve...

This ladle is marked for Koberlin Brothers, an old silverware firm in Saxony founded in 1828, although the ladle probably dates from the first quarter of the 20th century. It is decorated simply with a single thread outlining the curving form, and with the only relief being the monogram AP. The bowl is oval, and gold-washed. It is marked with the Koberlin mark, the German Imperial marks of crescent moon and crown, and 800 fine (in contrast with 925 for sterling) for the silver content. Length...

John R. Wendt trained for his craft in Germany before moving to Boston, and around 1860 to New York in order to provide silver largely to Ball, Black & Co. His patterns were creative and his work excellent. 'Ribbon' was introduced ca. 1870, using a variety of delicate design elements that seem to layer the length of the upper handle like 'ribbons' which are held in place with two bands and terminate under a small bead. Condition is good – there is no softening of the pattern, no bending...

One outgrowth of the “Josephine” pattern is the S.D. Brower variant of this design, and it probably emerged soon after 1855. A full acanthus leaf hangs from the top of the threaded handle, and smaller leaf portions emerge to form a center medallion space, inside which is engraved the name Ball in period script. The motif is repeated on the underside, terminating in an acanthus on the bowl. Condition of form, bowl and design is very good, with no spots, dents, bends or burrs. The length is...

These 6.4 inch tongs (0.78 inches across the arch) bear the mark tentatively ascribed by McGrew to Hall, Hewson & Brower of Albany NY (ca. 1846-52). The graceful fiddle form is decorated with a crisp basket of flowers motif and terminates in textured talon claws. The finish is excellent and the weight is 46 grams. There is no monogram.

Engraving on Philadelphia silver is first-rate, and this spoon is no exception. The handle uses an engine-turned field enclosed by threads to set off a shield with 'Heritage' engraved in lovely period script. The bowl of the spoon is fluted with a dart and egg edge. James Watts, whose mark together with the word 'coin' appears on the undecorated reverse of the handle, was both a maker and a retailer, ca. 1840-1880, and I would guess that this spoon was probably made ca. 1860. It is 8.7 in. l...

Despite only a “sterling” marking, the design elements of this spoon are clearly Philadelphian. The stem is Old English with multi-field outlining, leaving an area for a monogram, JIS. The bowl is pointed with a slight flange that is described by a zigzag element, and the bowl has a geometric, aesthetic center which is both bright-cut and engraved. The condition is excellent – no bends or dents, and no wear to the surface. Lots of reflectivity! Length is 7.8 in. and weight is 42 g.

Ercuis is a prestigious maker of French silverplate, established in the 1860s. 'Lauriers' is an elegant pattern reminiscent of the French Empire style. A thread outlines the handle, and an oval medallion space is created by acanthus leaves punctuating the top, with delicate branches of laurel/bay leaves and berries closing off that space. The pieces are double-struck, and a beautiful MG monogram is placed in the medallion of the reverse side. This set was surely made for the European mark...

Typical of the tension between form and design that evolved in Europe around 1900, the traditional pointed antique form of this cake knife and its sculptural, floral decoration combine in a pleasing silver handle which is complemented by an elegantly simpler gold-washed blade with light engraving. The handle is marked only with a small stamp '800' which doesn't conform to most Continental guarantee marks other than, perhaps, Italy. The silk-lined case, which shows some superficial wear, has t...
