This lovely Whiting sterling pattern has only recently been identified as “La France,'' having previously been known as “Roses and Scroll” or whatever the viewer might choose. It doesn't seem to have been a full line pattern, but one that people are often drawn to. The handle shows a softening of the pattern and is punctuated by a shallow N monogram. The pointed bowl has light but even remnants of gold wash with a small and very shallow dent that is mentioned for clarity...

'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.

The 6 spoons (8.1 inches) are in one of the most traditional patterns of theWestern world, originating in Germany in the late 18th century: the “Fiddle Thread” or “Fadenmuster”. They are 800 fine, or 80% pure, silver. Peter Bruckmann & Sons was located in Heilbronn, Germany, from 1805 until 1973 and enjoyed prestige as one of Germany's finest makers...

It's hard to say who actually made these spoons – they are unsigned, but marked simply “COIN 3,” and an (unknown) retailer G. Cram – but the habits of both William B. Durgin and Knowles & Ladd which sometimes included that practice, i.e., silver content and a numeral, could argue for either, and their uncommon design would seem to reinforce that assumption. The handles are straight-edged and terminate in 5 lobes...

Whiting's “Alhambra,” which was introduced in 1880 during a decade full of patterns with exotic references to places and cultures that defined the Romantic period. The handle is a fluted column topped by a geometric form filled with threaded tendrils on a textured background and a central cartouche which contains a script monogram H. The bowl is an elongated shell form with alternating rounded and pointed edges...

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...

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. 88.” The delicacy of the single die is representative of what was now possible. The youth knife and spoon were well cared for...

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 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...

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...

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...

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. Attachment to the oval bowl is by a reeded rattail which has softened t...

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.
