Let's start off the New Year here on BCAS in a small way, with this pair of miniature silver candlesticks.

Though only 2 1/8 inches tall they are nonetheless an accurate and well constructed George III reproduction, with square base (1 1/2 inches) and sunken centers. Dorothy Rainwater described Meyer as "a noted maker of silver miniatures."

Similar in design and construction to its larger cousin known as the "Louvre Bowl," (see Drucker, p. 188) because it is in the permanent collection of that institution.

Silver scholar and author D. Albert Soeffing describes this portrait as "a rather plain woman," and though it lacks the sophistication of some Medallions, there is a certain undeniable charm to her face. A great entry level item for the budding silver collector, should such a creature still exist...

Chawner, London 1813, length 8 3/4 inches, weight 6.5 Troy ounces, of exceptional quality with a thread that extends onto the heel of the bowl (see third photo), crest and monogram as shown.

We think it probable that another cypher may have been removed before the current one was engraved, but as these things go it is subtle and will not be visible to the untrained eye. Minor problems aside, the condition is superb. This is a truly elegant pair of spoons...

height 1 3/4; diameter of base 2 1/4 inches, weight 3.28 Troy ounces, excellent condition, discreetly monogrammed on the underside as shown in photos three and four.

These are perfectly plumb, but wide angle distortion has caused one to look a bit akilter, and for this we must apologize, dear reader.

Phineas Mitchell, Boston circa 1820, length six inches, weight 1.39 Troy ounces, excellent condition, monogrammed as shown in enlargement number three.

Long enough to be used for either ice or crudités. Note shell back decoration on spoon ends, which lifts these out of the realm of the mundane and into that of the "above average."

For those of you who did not get the chance to attend Brimfield this July in search of great antique silver, take heart. There was not much to be had. After a long day of shaking, nay thrashing the bushes, all we had to show for ourselves was this charming and well modelled little dog, length three inches, height 2 1/4 inches, excellent condition, unmarked.

Apparently doggie was once mounted on a plinth, as two of his paws have threaded holes (please see fourth photo).

circa 1816, length 10 3/4 inches, wear to pattern, minor dents and other sins, engraved with crest and motto "Tria Juncto in Uno," four by maker S P and two by someone else.

Knives are always tough to find in antique King's and related patterns. These are especially well suited to use, with their stainless blades by Robert F. Mosley of Sheffield which look to have been done in the 1930's. About as close as we get to shabby chic...
