circa 1880, longest dimension 1 5/8 inches (point to point), excellent condition, unmarked. Not originally intended as Judaica, this would have been a good luck symbol in the Victorian era, but we think it would make a splendid Chanukah present.
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."

These are substantial and well made spoons, weighing in at 4.69 oz. Troy, the lot. The overall condition is excellent. Whether any of this lends them a premium over the silver value, or whether they'll be swallowed up by the smelter's gaping maw remains to be seen...
length seven inches. No monogram, heavy (11.0 oz. Troy the set), generously proportioned and in fine condition with only slight wear to the high points. Given Yours Truly's horrible proclivities toward fussiness, we do have one complaint: they're a bit over-polished and much oxidation has been removed from the low areas. Time, however, will cure this sin...

Take advantage of the slight slowdown in the antiques market, while it lasts, to get this item at an advantageous price...
heavy (.71 oz. Troy) and in excellent condition, 1 5/8 by 1 3/4 inches, no monogram, marked only "sterling."
