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...

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.

This fork is not marked, but surely silver plate and probably English. The condition is excellent, with no plate missing, no bubbling or flaking, despite its (probably) 100 years. “Prince Albert,” named for Queen Victoria's consort, was introduced before 1850 and became a standard English pattern which proved popular in the United States during the coin period. The bread fork – a Victorian introduction – was meant to be passed with the bread plate. This one is 6.75 in.

Long admired for innovative design, Denmark's silver makers have produced admirable silver, often associated with abstract organic interpretations. This serving fork is such a piece. The two tines and lower handle are flat and mirror-like but terminate in an abbreviated openwork of reeds and berries enclosed in a frame of blossoms. Three irregular lines suggesting water separate the two areas and provide an interesting contrast in the single-die construction. The length is 8-5/16 in...

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.

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...

“Oval Thread” was very popular during the coin period. At that time, knives were not made to match the pattern but were purchased separately, and this one went with many patterns. The picture shows 6 knives, but only 5 of them are coin – the 6th is plated and is included at no charge as a “completer.” The knives have no structural problems – no bends or burrs or pitting...

The “Dognose” pattern was made in England ca. 1695-1715 during the period when the Britannia, or 95.84%, purity standard was used (1697-1720), and serving as a style that transitions from the trefid to Hanoverian; it was seldom seen after 1720. Typical of the Queen Anne style, the handle of this spoon has an upturned terminal which is characterized by a “wavy end” resembling a dog's nose when viewed from above...

Most pieces in this pattern, introduced ca. 1870, are unmarked as to maker, and this is no exception. Because, however, I have seen pieces with Whiting's mark, I will make that tentative attribution. The stylized leaves and berries are arranged on a textured ground and encased by a defining geometric edge. The blade is engraved with leaves inside a zig-zag outline. It is single-die cut. The condition is fine, with no bends or burrs, and only age-expected wear to the engraving...

'Plymouth' was introduced in 1911, at the time when tastes were turning from ornamental styles to Colonial Revival; it was a very popular pattern.

It has the Gorham mark and 'sterling' on the reverse.

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...

The Japanese influences of the 1870s and 1880s came to silver in many forms. The bright-cut designs of the period utilized such elements as flowers, leaves, birds, and branches found in Japanese textiles, but as in 'Chrysanthemum' (introduced 1885), their asymmetrical dispositions were constrained by the Old English forms into which they were cut. Acid etching is the background of the handles into which the flowers are incised and emphasizes the flowers, branches and leaves. There is very, ve...
