length six inches, weight 1.00 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition, retailed by Wendell & Roberts.

Silver scholar and author D. Albert Soeffing describes this portrait as "a rather plain woman," and though it lacks the sophistication of some Medallions, there is a certain undeniable charm to her face. A great entry level item for the budding silver collector, should such a creature still exist...

Chawner, London 1813, length 8 3/4 inches, weight 6.5 Troy ounces, of exceptional quality with a thread that extends onto the heel of the bowl (see third photo), crest and monogram as shown.

We think it probable that another cypher may have been removed before the current one was engraved, but as these things go it is subtle and will not be visible to the untrained eye. Minor problems aside, the condition is superb. This is a truly elegant pair of spoons...

Knives are always tough to find in antique King's and related patterns. These are especially well suited to use, with their stainless blades by Robert F. Mosley of Sheffield which look to have been done in the 1930's. About as close as we get to shabby chic...

Gale & Mosely, New York circa 1830, double struck-- for the uninitiated, this means the pattern is both front and back, length just shy of 8 1/2 inches, some very slight tine wear on a few (we've pictured the worst one in enlargement number four) but superb overall condition, weight 30.74 Troy ounces (!!) or 2.79 each on average, no monogram.

One would be hard-pressed indeed to find a better set of dinner forks.

DeMatteo produced objects for Colonial Williamsburg, and often used designs by the 18th century Virginia silversmith James Geddy as his inspiration. These were marked I ˖ G in addition to the usual trademarks (see third photo).

Over the years, we've bought and sold more than a few items by the DeMatteo family. This is unquestionably the best we've had the privilege to offer.

engraved "Kansas City" in bowl, length 5 7/8 inches, weight 1.30 Troy ounces, excellent condition.

Place pieces are much rarer than servers in this grand old Durgin pattern whose name is a subject of some disagreement, which leads me to believe that not many were produced.

length 5 3/4 inches, weight .77 oz. Troy, excellent condition, monogrammed "S". It is safe to assume that the olive fork was made in at least two sizes, this being the shortest.

length 5 5/8 inches, total Troy weight 6.22 ounces, superb condition, faintly gilt tines, monogrammed as shown (please see third photo).

These are particularly choice examples, extra heavy, with excellent detail and die depth. To my eye, this is one of R & B's most attractive designs. For further discussion of what makes a pattern aesthetically successful, see Design New England, November-December 2012, pp. 60-64

with high relief cast bust of Van Dyck, length 9 inches, weight 3.24 Troy ounces, no monogram. Truly one of Antoine Heller's greatest designs, and among Gorham's most sculptural patterns.

There is a file cut (visible from side and reverse only; see fourth photo) which we've pictured in excruciating detail, and some light pitting on the blade which we've mostly polished out and probably will address a bit more, as time allows. Aside from this, the condition is excellent.
