With stylish foliate handles and an applied border, this is an exceptionally functional, high quality item.

Waterbury CT circa 1840, length 7 1/4 inches, total Troy weight 6.67 ounces, fine condition, monogrammed "H.A. Shiels" obverse in period script.

Though this mark would appear to be previously unpublished, we are attributing it to Horace, since the only other possible firm might have belonged to Hiram Hotchkiss, who would have been ten or twenty years old when Fiddle Thread was in the height of its popularity.

Marked only "coin," back in the day we would have hastened to read through many musty issues of "Silver Magazine" in order to find the maker of this fine ladle, but now, in our dotage, we will leave this task to you, dear reader.

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...
