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...

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...

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...

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...

This simple and beautiful coin silver serving spoon from a fine old Boston maker is in wonderful condition – an Oval Thread handle balanced by an elegant teardrop bowl, with almost no scratches at all – clearly well cared for in its 150 years – no dings, dents, or bends to be seen or felt. The front of the handle is engraved with the name Abbott in Gothic lettering, and it's 8-5/8 in. long. Weight is 66 grams.

'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. This small (5.3 in.) sterling server's pattern is variously called “Corn” and “Acorn.” It embodies the stylized organic qualities in Scandinavian design of the 20th Century (and before!...

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 silver is...

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. The condition is excellent – no tine wear, no scra...

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. Coles' tribute in creating the double-struck Jenny Lind pattern took ...

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. The length is...

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. The knife is...

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...

“Louis XIV” mustard spoon / ladle by Henry Hebbard is marked with the patent date of 1847 and with the retailer J. Rudd & Co. The pattern is double-struck, and is in fine condition. There are no bends, and the bowl has an excellent finish. There is a lovely period script monogram MEM. The length is 5.25 inches, the bowl 7/8 inches, and the weight is 20 grams.
