marked with the F.M. monarch - lion - D pseudos commonly associated with Savannah, length 13 1/4 inches, weight 8.7 oz Troy, monogrammed "S S T" (obverse) as shown.

There is a minor, shallow scratch extending downwards from nick on rim of bowl, and a flattened out spot on reverse cartouche where someone buffed out a scratch, long ago. Both are subtle and don't "jump out" at the eye-- overall this piece presents itself extremely well. It is grand in weight and scale.

A decent piece of Baltimore engraved coin silver, 9 1/8 inches long, good condition, monogrammed "Clintonia" (please see second photo). As to what this might comprise (cigars? a large kneehole desk?) one can only speculate, but Yours Truly will exercise restraint before he gets himself into trouble, though more astute readers tell me that in actual fact it's simply a flower...

regional interest, Beggs & Smith, Cincinnati circa 1850, engraved "Irwin", some light wear but fine overall condition, length 5 3/8 inches. Did Irwin use this to embellish his hot dog, and if so was it a Kosher dog? Alas, we may never know...

Let's stop right there. I don't for a moment believe that this item was made in Boston. Most everything about it: the floral four toed feet, chased foliage with "ring matted" background (see Forbes, plate 41), silversmith's center punch on the top (see fourth photo), the overall heft and construction suggest that it was made in Canton province. Can I prove it? No, not yet at any rate. Diameter, 8.5"; height .75"; weight 14.0 oz...

an original set at that-- all with date letter "F", S.K. in rectangle, 11 over 12, and city mark. Length 8 3/8 inches, weight 31.1 Troy ounces, all monogrammed "M" (reverse, period script, see third photo) most have some slight tine wear but the pattern is in very good condition. One or two are hard to find, but a set of twelve is rare, and this is not a word which we use lightly!!!

Our only American assay office was located in the city of Baltimore, circa 1814-30...

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
$1650.00
length 13 1/2 inches, weight 5 oz Troy, no monogram. Concerning condition, the handle is ever so slightly off vertical and there are some very minor dents in bowl (please see fourth photo). Both of these issues are difficult for my eye to detect, so I do not feel that they need to be addressed. The bust looks pretty much the way it did when this item left the factory in Providence some hundred forty odd years ago...
