length 3 3/4 inches, excellent condition, no monogram. Not antique but perhaps from the 1920's (see photo number two for mark) with better detail, die-depth and stronger oxidation than you'd find in a brand new one.
length 5 5/8 inches, excellent condition, no monogram. An old and lushly detailed piece of repoussé of a quality which is becoming increasingly hard to find.
length inches, weight 2.17 Troy ounces, monogrammed "G" (?) in elaborate shaded script, obverse, and "1824 / 1874" reverse, reticulated gilt bowl engraved with ivy leaves, immaculate original condition.
We have never encountered a spoon with this boat-shaped flat bottom bowl in the past, and have conferred with a Very Knowledgeable Fellow who has owned one (yes, just one) before and is of the opinion that this is indeed a berry spoon.
length 9 1/8 inches, monogrammed "FLC" script reverse (see third photo), marked "sterling 11", an extremely slight wave to the blade mentioned as my esteemed colleague in Tennessee would say only for the sake of accuracy but fine overall condition and not one but two bugs crawling among those roses...
Length 6 7/8 inches, no monogram, excellent condition. In a bit of Victorian whimsey which Knowles often used on their servers, the business end of this blade is formed of tiny cucumbers...
probably a crest and we suspect Missouri-related given the maker. Great quality and weight; the condition is unassailable when viewed from the front but from the reverse (see second photo) it is obvious that there have been some different findings attached in years past... 2 5/8 by 2 1/8 inches, no monogram, marked "Mermod & Jaccard / Solid Silver".
length 9 7/8 inches, no monogram, a minor nick toward the end of handle (please see second photo) but fine overall condition, weight 3.72 oz Troy. Perfect for serving lasagne or other casseroles.
10 1/2 inches long; fine condition; monogrammed "MJM" (at end) in period script with flourishes; marked "BALL BLACK & CO / 950"; weight 6.5 oz. Troy. Also known as a "yoked" asparagus tongs, which sounds a bit bovine to these ears...
but unmarked, length 4 1/2 inches comprising veined leaf with cast applied beetle enwrapping five stems and flower buds, wires have come unsoldered in a few spots at lower "bundle" but fine overall condition, original clasp (see fourth photo).
model 429B, 1 by 5/8 inches, weight 9.7 grams. It is interesting to note that one is marked with Foss' mark and the model number and the other with "Georg Jensen USA Inc" and the (same) model number, as shown in photos two and three.
no monogram, fine condition, length 4 1/2 inches. A splendid little example of British Arts & Crafts silver, and with the dollar down in the doldrums our price probably amounts to no more than a few quid... Please see third photo for marks.
hand wrought, height 3 1/4 inches, weight 1.74 Troy ounces, excellent condition, monogrammed as shown in second enlargement.
With sinuous curves and whimsical spade-shaped feet, this is truly a little classic of English Art Nouveau silver.
length just shy of ten inches, superb condition, gilt tines, marked only "Black Starr & Frost STERLING" but probably by Dominick & Haff, monogrammed "PM" (script, reverse) perhaps in honor of the cocktail hour...
Alas, so are we. After 26 years, the Boston Antique Coop II is closing its doors. This, as they say, is due to circumstances beyond our control. Along with my colleagues John, Lolly, Gerry, Françoise, Rosemary, Brian, and Jackie let me offer a heartfelt thanks to all the folks who helped make our shop a success. Will we open another retail location? There are no immediate plans, but stay tuned to this spot. And of course I'm always willing to consider suggestions from friends in t...
circa 1900, length 10.6, height 7.5 centimeters, mass 162.7 grams, .950 standard. If you're a
Brit, that's 4 inches long; 3 1/4 inches high; 5.23 Troy ounces.
We're not going to prattle on about how rare it is or how good it is, but you may rest assured that it's both. Aside from a small test mark on the underside (please see fourth photo) the condition is pretty much flawless.
Yes, here by popular demand is another item in our now famous series for those with Park Slope taste and Canarsie budgets: a well engraved Victorian youth fork length 5 3/4 inches, fine condition and wonder of wonders it's never been monogrammed. Please see third photo for marks.
length 6 3/4 inches, no monogram, excellent condition.
First, let me protest my spell checker's version of "enamelled". We favor the doubled consonant, and have only capitulated to appease the mighty google.
Height 1 3/4; top diameter 4 1/8 inches, weight 3.92 oz. Troy, no monogram, some very minor enamel loss, light scratches and barely visible dents but fine overall condition, unmarked.
Knight was a designer and silversmith who achieved both Craftsman and Master designations from the Boston Society of Arts & Crafts. For similar exampl...
