Louisville circa 1850, height 3 3/4; top diameter 3 1/8; bottom diameter 2 1/2 inches, satisfyingly hefty at 5.94 oz. Troy, a few very minor dings but fine overall condition.

One or two mouse clicks in a Google search window will find you any number of similar examples which are lighter, shorter, fatigued and pricier. For example, lot 159 in Case's January 2016 sale (which weighed a full thirty-three percent less, at 4 oz. Troy) fetched 1240.00).

length 7 3/4 inches, weight a generous 1.95 Troy ounces, no monogram, marked only sterling but probably Vansant.

There is some slight wear to engraving on blade, though nothing tragic, and also a few scratches as shown in first enlargement which I'll gladly attempt to polish out before shipping if you ask me very nicely.

New York circa 1920, 4 1/2 by 6 inches, fine condition. We were initially a bit hesitant about this listing-- after all, here is Bruce Cherner Antique silver not a hand painted china emporium. What ultimately won me over was how this image evoked a very personal memory of seeing Bobby Short at the Café Carlyle, which unlike its cousin the Astor still thankfully exists. Those of you who'd like more information on the grand Hotel may consult the excellent posting at University of Virginia's a...

a rare, diminutive example, 3 1/8 X 1 7/8 X just under 1/2 inches, weight 2.3 Troy ounces.

It is an unusual pleasure to find an object which is engraved ("J. Diprose, EsqR / from J.J.G. Bombay") with both a name and a location, to lend it an added sense of history.

This item is superb in both design and execution. Though we always hesitate to say "flawless condition," one would be hard-pressed to find fault. If your collection wants for a representative from Victorian era silver...

Those of us who had a chance to visit the "Silver and Shawls: India, Europe, and the Colonial Art Market" at Harvard's Sackler Museum are no doubt all steamed up about anglo-Indian silver, and want a little example for our collection. Stop here. This is a great one. Length just shy of 5 inches; width 1 1/8; decagonal in section; nearly flawless condition (lid over stoppered end does not hold tightly-- see third photo). Unmarked; no monogram.

At the risk of damaging our much vaunted "brand" here at BCAS, let's set aside the pricey designer goods and feature something by nobody, or at very best the 18th silversmith to be registered in Taxco, circa 1979, a great year, I remember it well....

Length 16 3/4 inches, of exceptional weight (2.63 Troy ounces) and quality, in excellent condition with firmly functioning clasp, this is equivalent of anything you'll find by Margot or other well known Mexican designers at a fraction of the ...

set of six in original felt lined box, .800 standard, maker Fabbrica Argenteria Fiorentina circa 1935, total weight 3.86 oz. Troy, excellent condition, no monogram. These are well modelled and well executed. Each putto is full figural front and back. Though the little folks are cast from the same mold, each is carrying a different dish: soup, fish, fowl, eggplant, grapes, salad, and of course wine. An altogether charming way to guide your guests at table.

interest.

Readers of our little web page know that there's not much coin silver flatware here-- that is, pieces made between 1825 and 1868 in the good old U.S. of A. Why? Because most of it was thin, mass produced, and of inferior quality. Indeed, the majority of what we now see was made in New York, Boston or Philly and simply stamped with local marks.

But then again there are items such as this spoon by Joab Gillett of Cazenovia, a man who did actually work as a silversmith, which...

height 7 1/2 inches, width across handle 5 1/4 inches, weight 18 Troy ounces, capacity one quart, marked as shown in fourth enlargement. A classic, organic shape made famous by the Jensen Silversmithy (and featured on the dj of Janet Drucker's popular book), this design was conceived by Rohde in 1925, but did not enter production until 1930 because it was considered too radical.

This lovely example is entirely hand wrought, and dates from 1948. There have been a few dents removed from a...

length 6 inches, total Troy weight 9.1 ounces, marked and monogrammed as shown in enlargements, excellent condition. We also have dinner forks available, length 7 7/8 inches, weight 1.75 oz each.

To give these some historical perspective, consider that the high relief, elaborately detailed patterns such as New Art and Chrysanthemum didn't spring into existence out of nowhere. Early (1850-60's) die-struck designs such as this were the middle step between simple, swaged decoration and th...
