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...

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...

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...

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
$600.00
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.
