Baltimore MD circa 1790, round downturned end with just a hint of a rear midrib extending 3 inches down the handle, unusual double arched drop, length 8 3/4 inches, some tip wear as shown but good overall condition, monogrammed "H" in period script. How certain are we of this attribution? Well, if it's American then the spoon is most certainly Dowig...
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...
height 1 5/8 inches excluding handle, length across spout 2 inches, a few minor dents which we intend to remove quite soon, if possible; hinge in excellent condition, no monogram.
length 8 1/2 inches, no monogram, outstanding original condition.
Silver gilt, with inlaid black and raised blue enamel. A classic example of Art Deco flatware. 4 1/8 inches; good condition; marked "925S" with maker's mark of two V's superimposed upon each other at 180 degrees.
Banks and Biddle Company, length 8 1/4 inches, excellent condition, monogrammed "C" (script, obverse). A classic example of Philadelphia style bright cut engraving. Marked with trademark only, but our guess is that it's sterling rather than coin silver.
length 6 inches, monogrammed "RBK", excellent condition. In deference to those collectors who find it difficult to abide by someone else's initials, we've made these tantalizingly cheap...
1836, 2 3/4 by 1 5/8 by 5/8 inches, no monogram, gilt interior, weight 2.2 oz. Troy, some corners have minor dents which we show in excruciating detail (see photos three & four) but good overall condition, great color, and reasonably priced.
length 9 3/8 inches, excellent condition save for a spot of plate wear as shown (see third photo for excruciating detail), no monogram.
2 5/8 by 1 1/4 inches, excellent condition, no monogram, weight .56 oz. Troy, marked with Gorham trademark and model number 12. Cast, not stamped, this is a faithful high quality antique reproduction of a Georgian bottle ticket.
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."
length 8 5/8 inches, weight 3.9 Troy ounces, monogrammed "B", outstanding original condition, marked "Shreve Crump & Low" with 925 in oval.
Though not a "first demand" pattern, the Antique Ivies were made by several manufacturers, and involved extensive skill and hand work to produce. Expensive when first sold, they are members of a dying breed, as most flatware of this quality has now been consigned to the melting pot...
height 2 1/2; length 2 7/8 inches, weight 1.73 Troy ounces, fine condition, no monogram, marked as shown.
Shepard Mfg. Corporation, length 5 1/2 inches, fine condition, no monogram.
G. Keller, Paris circa 1920. Fine condition, no monogram, good weight, 2 3/4 by 1 inches. I could think of many uses for this on your nightstand but would probably get myself into trouble by mentioning them...
7 1/2 inches long, weight 1.74 oz. Troy, excellent condition, gilt bowl, no monogram, retailed by Cox Brothers.
exceptionally colourful, gilt bowl, no monogram, excellent condition save for one small portion of missing blue inlay (see third photo). I hesitate to call this damage. Gorham had significant problems with the enameling process and it may be a slight "second".
or just some royal wannabe born away in her covered chair by those two fine gents? No comment from Yours Truly. Queen or not, this is a good continental silver box with finely done acid etched cover, no monogram, excellent condition, 2 1/2 by 1 inches, marked "sterling / 935" (see second photo).
