“Beaded” became a “standard pattern” – that is, there were many makers and versions from ca. 1850 through the coin period. Philadelphia's is distinguished by the inclusion of a fleur de lys at the top and bottom of the handle. This group bears the mark of Philadelphia retailer C. Bard & Son. There is wear to the pattern, more on the forks than the spoons (see enlargements; the first 2 pics are the forks, the next 3 the spoons)...

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...

A classic mid-19th century pattern of the coin period, 'Oval Thread' appears with marks by most makers and retailers. The blades are even, without waviness, bites or burrs; the handles are firm, with no splits. There is no pitting. Wear is commensurate with their 150+ years, and have been well cared for. An anchor, Victorian head, and lion are stamped on the blades, indicating a New York maker. The name Phelps is lightly engraved on the handles in period script...

Beautiful stuffing or basting spoon in the “Louis XIV” pattern first patented in 1847 by John Chandler Moore. It was variously produced by John Polhemus (Polhamus) and Henry Hebbard, all of whom sold through Tiffany prior to Tiffany's own silver production. This must have been an early example because it's not marked “sterling” as most other pieces made for Tiffany were; rather, it is coin. There is a monogram WCA...

“Nordic” in this case could be Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Lapland and Norway) or northern Germany (which belonged to Denmark at times) or even the Baltic region – the marks are not consistent with official markings of the time and would point to a region more isolated from a guardein, or silver warden...

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...

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...

The mark on the spoons is that of Bigelow, Kennard & Co., 925, and probably date from the last quarter of the 19th Century. The form of the handle is Old English, the bowls have the slightly narrower and elongated oval shape associated with early Georgian silver – and would go very well with flatware of that period. They are 5-5/8 in. long and weigh 258 g. A feathery script F is monogrammed to the front of the handle. There are no distractions of any kind...

The Classical elements of Gorham's Pompeii pattern – volutes, acanthus, anthemion – are as crisp as when they were new, with no heel, knife, or stacking scratches. Amazing that these four dinner-size (7.5 inch) forks could have survived over 150 years with no monogram! They were likely made in the year the pattern was introduced (1868) because they are coin (Gorham phased out coin silver in 1868) and they have 'Patent Applied For' which assures an early production. Weight is 212 grams.

Hindostanee, introduced in 1878, epitomized the Romantic movement – the pursuit of the exotic in places such as the Ancient Near East, North Africa, and India. Gorham's interpretation invoked the curving lines and patterns associated with the Indian designs found in woodworking, tile, textiles and metals...

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...

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...

“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. There is softening of the surface design on one side – I expect that a monogram was removed and that side wa...

The death of George Washington is usually credited with this variation in the austere taste in silver that was popular in America at the end of the 18th Century. With the otherwise rounded corners of the spoons beveled to suggest a coffin, this style is considered by many as a uniquely American invention. Longer, more pointed bowls complete the visual suggestion of length from the straight handles of the 7 spoons. The downturn at the (reverse tipt) ends of the handles is slight, the only reli...

These are very attractive spoons, 5.25 long, with a twisted shank terminating in a rounded flat end with a Japanesque bright-cut décor that is in keeping with other patterns ca. 1880. The bowls have raised ridges (to keep the ice cream from sticking?) and have very pale suggestions of original gold treatment. (I am reluctant to clean them more than superficially because of this.) Wood & Hughes was known for many specialty items, but this is not a pattern I have encountered – it is similar...

Simple but elegant and classic, the cannon handle of the knife is topped with a finial that echoes the tip. The handle is engraved with what appear to be a sort of diapering of dart-and-egg motifs along the shaft, with a border of acanthus. The blade is also classic, with engraved foliage relieving the otherwise plain surfact. The knife is marked with V Christesen --for Vilhelm Christesen whom, in 1846, opened a large factory in Copenhagen -- the mark of Simon Groth, the Danish assay ward...

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. The hand-engraved surface of the handles uses wiggle-work to enclose a t...
