top diameter 9 1/2; bottom 4 1/8 inches, no monogram, weight 29.4 Troy ounces, craftsman Herbert Taylor, excellent condition.

Stone's workshop made this item in at least four sizes. The larger two required substantial time in the making, and are scarce by comparison to their smaller peers. It is also unusual find an example which has never been engraved, since these were most often made as presentation pieces.

Let's take a moment to reflect upon why a dealer, or at least Yours Truly, chooses to add an item to inventory.

Over the years, we've handled many many pieces of Martelé, and if you dear reader will forgive me for a bit of crudeness, most of them are "trashed." Specifically, the detail is severely worn away, leaving the beauty of the overall design still appreciable but no longer intact...

As our friend Don Soeffing has recounted in "The Battle of the Birds" (Silver Magazine, November/December 1995), production of this pattern was short lived, because W & H lost this particular battle against Tiffany for infringement of their design pattern...

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...

This piece bears the craftsman's mark of both Robert Bean and Fletcher Carter. Also, let's give a shout out to the good folks at ONC, still going strong in Amesbury after one hundred years, who were kind enough to identify this cup as the "Roly Poly cordial."

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...
