The elaborate hollow handles of this lovely set speak for their Victorian origins, balanced by traditional sterling blades. These were likely part of a set, but large for a fruit / dessert set at 8.5 inches (knife) and 7.4 inches (fork). Hallmarked for London 1849 (knife) and 1852 (fork), the maker could have been either George W. Adams or George Angell (identical marks)...

Arthur Stone (1847-1938) is often called “The Dean of American Silversmiths.” As an English born and trained silversmith, Arthur Stone's work embodied the fine workmanship associated with English silver, and with the individuality he found so appealing in early American forms. He produced both ecclesiastical and domestic silver. The shop he opened in 1901 trained many fine silversmiths in the hand-wrought method. This serving fork, in a Pointed Antique style, is heavy...

Hanau, Germany, was a center for silversmiths from the mid-19th century to the first decades of the 20th century, and whose major works involved copying or recreating antique styles in flatware and holloware. Its special status allowed it to be free of the marking system that was incumbent on all other German cities, and many are not completely known today...

The Old English form of the 6 sterling spoons is dressed with a lovely and traditional diamond hand-cut and engraved design by highly respected London silversmith Thomas Dealtry who was entered into the goldsmiths' registry in 1765. They are hallmarked for 1802 with the mark Dealtry registered in 1799. The spoons are 5 inches long, and their condition is very, very good. There are no dents or pits, and no bends to the handles, which have an appropriate (and attractive) Gothic 'P' monogram...

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...

These are older D & H Pointed Antique / Broad Antique knives – introduced in 1895 – with stainless French Modern replacement blades marked “Brilliant.” They are 9-1/8 in. long and bear a lovely Arts & Crafts monogram. They are marked only “sterling handle” which is very common for knives, but I got them with several other pieces of Dominick & Haff of the same vintage with the same monogram, so I'm comfortable with the identification...

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...

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 Engraved Lily pattern was a somewhat standard bright-cut pattern – that is, it was made by several makers and was very popular ca. 1885. The lily blossoms follow the curvature of the handle, punctuated with diamond cuts. This youth set is marked with Sterling and the name of Harris & Schafer, a respected Washington DC retailer, which is unlikely to have been the maker. The set has been used but not abused...

Christofle is perhaps France's most prestigious silver maker, dating from about 1840. 'Marly' is its oldest pattern, still in production. In addition to its innovative designs, Christofle also took the early lead on advancing the plating process which it had licensed from Elkington to make wares which were more heavily plated than their competitors and attractive to prestigious customers from all over the world...

Improvements in the silver manufacturing process by 1870 made possible new design implementations, and Gorham probably led the field with a spate of innovative patterns, among them “Lily” (1870). It is also known as “No...

The Fiddle Thread pattern is one of the most representative of the coin period. These spoons are completely unmarked but are doubtless (guaranteed) coin silver. They're in fabulous condition – no dents, burrs, not even age-expected surface scratches – surprising for their 150+ years. There are two sets of monograms, an Old English M on the front and a script FH on the back of the handles. Length of the spoons is 5.6 in. and their weight is 98 g.

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...

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.

Nordic silver of the 20th Century is in a class of its own – attempts to copy it seem to fall short. This spoon embodies the the frequent simplicity of plain and flat surfaces relieved by something organic and sculptural often encountered in modern Danish patterns. The handle's length and width are emphasized by a sharp, straight line down the center, terminating with a curved, bowl of flowers. The shape of the bowl echoes the curves of the flower bowl, which could be sitting atop a column...

Schohay & Ludwig was a short-lived Philadelphia partnership (ca. 1867-73) producing items of both coin and sterling silver. The marmalade spoon is marked coin. Its handle is twisted with a wide flat terminal, engraved with volutes and blossoms; there is a central field with a script monogram EH. The heavy bowl is ovate with notches on the rim, engraved stems and leaves, and repousee fruits and berries. There are traces of gold. It is 7 in. long and weights 28 g. The condition is very good....

This was probably a place spoon – larger than English or American counterparts at 9-1/8 inches. The type – a 'reverse tipt' – spoon was made in virtually every silver-producing country in the 19th Century, and fits easily with the city mark for Kronstadt – modern Brasov – for 1850. Kronstadt was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1850, but is now in Romania. With the city mark is the letter N, – it could be a year code, but I have been unable to get the mark closer than ca. 1850...
