Let's start off the New Year here on BCAS in a small way, with this pair of miniature silver candlesticks.
Though only 2 1/8 inches tall they are nonetheless an accurate and well constructed George III reproduction, with square base (1 1/2 inches) and sunken centers. Dorothy Rainwater described Meyer as "a noted maker of silver miniatures."
engraved "R.P.L. Jr.," weight 2.98 Troy ounces, diameter 1 7/8; height 1 3/4 inches, excellent condition, finest quality.
A splendid addition to any table, though it would fit in especially well with Old Maryland, Engraved.

set of six in original felt lined box, .800 standard, maker Fabbrica Argenteria Fiorentina circa 1935, total weight 3.86 oz. Troy, excellent condition, no monogram. These are well modelled and well executed. Each putto is full figural front and back. Though the little folks are cast from the same mold, each is carrying a different dish: soup, fish, fowl, eggplant, grapes, salad, and of course wine. An altogether charming way to guide your guests at table.
no, not that kind of a cat box, but a snuff box with "trap door" opening and secret compartment, 2 1/4 by 1 7/8 by 1 inches, weight 2.27 oz. Troy, marked with Chinese ideograms only (please see 5th photo).

with a band of beading below each die-rolled border, monogrammed TSD (?) in period script with flourishes, one pinprick dent is visible in our first enlargement but fine overall condition, diameter and height 1 3/4 inches, weight 1.54 oz. Troy.
height and diameter both 1.5 inches, a few minor dents which don't show up well in the photographs but good overall condition, no monogram, marked as one may suspect with the Gorham trademark, sterling, and B4186.
