'Louis XIV' (patented in 1870) was one of the many innovative patterns introduced by Gorham following the coin period, this one using suggestions of classical elements – column, arches, volutes, dart-and-egg in a new way, with a very pleasing result. The spoon is in excellent condition – no bends, dents, pits or burrs – only superficial scratches expected with age. It is 8.75 in., 54 g., and has a lovely script monogram CEL on the reverse.

“Bead” was perhaps introduced by John Polhemus, but it certainly was made by several others and became a 'standard pattern' in the coin period – a Pointed Antique handle outlined with beads and topped by foliage. Like many of those patterns, it crossed over into plate and was made by many manufacturers. These knives are 7.5 in. long and are are marked for JF Curran & Co. (NY) which survived for only about 10 years, about 1865-1875. They are marked A1 – the superior quality for plating...

At a hair under 8.5 in., this spoon was probably a place spoon. The handle is delicately engraved to create a field containing bright-cut foliage. The maker was the Norsk Filigransfabrikk (1889-1910) whose mark is on the back, together with 13-1/2 indicating the Loth content, equivalent to 826 fine silver, or 82.6%, as a guarantee. Since the Norwegian marking system was changed in 1891 to eliminate the Loth, this spoon was made between 1889 and 1891. There is no damage to the spoon...

The work of Poul Petersen (1895-1977) is recognizable through its affinity to that of George Jensen (whose daughter he married), with whom he had trained prior to emigrating from Denmark to Canada in 1929. A skilled craftsman, he employed over 20 workmen in his studio, where the output was hand-wrought...

The mark on the knives is for Saglier Freres, successor to Victor Saglier (1809-1894), a well-known Paris Art Nouveau silver maker who worked largely in plate but also solid silver. Sons Eugene and Andre continued the business until after World War II. These knives, 8-3/8” long, could be for lunch, dessert, cheese – or whatever – and probably date from about 1900-1910. The classic form is punctuated with acanthus leaves and can complement many Nouveau or simpler patterns...

The pattern is an unnamed one (although sometimes called 'Queen of the Sea' to distinguish it) attributed Philo Gilbert of New York, ca, 1860, but seldom sold with his mark. Rather, a multitude of retailers – including Gorham and Shiebler – have appeared on examples of this pattern; these are marked with New York City jeweler Giles, Wales & Co. This was a full-line pattern having everything from place pieces to large and small servers...

Albert Coles (1815-1885) must have attended one of the early concerts given by Jenny Lind upon her arrival in New York, where Coles worked, in 1850; his pattern is generally placed in that year. Known as the “Swedish Nightingale,” Jenny Lind won an immediate place in the hearts of Americans, not only for her voice but also for her philanthropy for which was deemed virtuous. Many places and objects were named after her...

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...

Typical of Martin Hall (Sheffield), these 2 berry spoons are very well made, with close attention to detail. They are silver plate, 8 in. long, and date from ca. 1875. The bowls are scalloped; the upper – twisted – half of the handles spring from skeletal figures and are topped with plinths supporting St. Peter. The whole is acid-etched, and both bowls and apostles have light gold-washed finishes...

Northern California's silver industry was a natural outgrown of the discovery of silver there in 1849, and several jewelers and silversmiths emigrated to San Francisco to contribute to the new economic wealth that was California's. Several businesses emerged, many making or selling the same patterns in silver. “Gothic” (Reichel, Vanderslice, Koehler & Ritter) and “Eureka” (Schulz & Fischer) were a variation on Gorham's “Cottage” which had been introduced in 1861, and probably appe...

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 Chrysanthemum pattern was introduced by Gorham in 1885, together with many other bright-cuts that were emerging at that time. The bright-cut pieces were hand-engraved – no two are exactly alike, and were labor intensive. The bowl of this attractive sauce ladle has chrysanthemums engraved in the acid-etched bowl as well. There are no monograms or removals, scratches or bends or dings. The length is just under 6 inches (hard to measure!) and the weight is 34 grams. The mark is the Gorha...

Ricco / Ricci Argentieri is a very old Italian silver manufacturer that claims to use 10 times the normal amount of silver in the plating process. The “Bernini” pattern displays light classic elements – volute, acanthus, thread, shell – on the handle, and the serving blade echoes the shape of the handle. This handsome, solid piece is well-finished and has not been used, showing only the scratches that came from storage drawer in the store. It is 10.5 in. long. Please note: This pa...

This ice? spoon or straining server could be used for many things – poached eggs, peas, quenelles... It was manufactured in Brussels by Orfevrerie Bruno Wiskemann (established 1869), in the 'Fiddle Thread' pattern, adaptable to many tables. It is in excellent condition – no missing plating, discoloration or heel wear, and with no monograms – wonderful condition. Marked with the old Wiskemann mark. The length is 9.5 in. long.
