Virginia circa 1810, length 5 3/4 inches, monogrammed "T" (??) in period script with flourishes, weight 2.51 oz. Troy the lot, light wear and some minor dents in bowls but superb color and very good overall condition. Clarico's work would appear to be scarce.
length 9 inches, weight a massive 6.39 Troy ounces, some scratches in bowl as shown (please see third photo) but fine overall condition, no monogram, marked with Simpson Hall & Miller's trademark and STERLING. It is worth noting that this is only the second large piece of Cleone we've had the privilege to offer.
Just shy of 15 inches long, monogrammed "LBG" (fancy script with flourishes, obverse), a few very minor scratches and a tiny dent in bowl which may or may not show up in photo number four but fine overall condition. Among the myriad ladles described as "punch", here, dear reader, is one that is...
excellent condition, monogrammed "W" (see second photo), length 5 3/8 inches, weight 6.21 Troy ounces. These have an embossed decoration on the bowl which we suspect that later versions of this piece do not possess.
Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
length 6 1/4 inches, monogrammed "LES" script obverse, fine condition, retailed by The Cowell & Hubbard Co.
length 10 1/4 inches, weight 3.5 Troy ounces, superb original condition, monogrammed "B". This is truly a grand piece of silver. Often, fine details of die-struck patterns were embellished by hand chasing, and a light finger over the grapes and tendrils here will reveal to the touch a slight burr still left from the silversmith's tools.
length 5 3/8 inches, excellent condition, no monogram, please see second photo for marks. Why a pair? One for chocolate sauce, the other for a darker chocolate sauce, of course.
with engraved faintly gilt blade, the handle circular in section, length 9 1/8 inches, no monogram, excellent condition.
with "alligator skin" surface and applied calling card. 4 1/8 by 2 3/8 inches; one corner has a bit of a bruise (see second photo) but fine overall condition; no monogram!! It is most unusual to find a good looking Victorian case that will fit a modern size business card, and has not been engraved.
1840, engine turned lid and base with applied cast and chased border, 3 by 1 5/8 by .75 inches, gilt interior, well constructed and heavy (3.17 oz. Troy). There has been a monogram removed from the rectangular cartouche, but it requires a trained eye to detect this.
length 9 1/8 inches, monogrammed "FLC" script reverse (see third photo), marked "sterling 11", an extremely slight wave to the blade mentioned as my esteemed colleague in Tennessee would say only for the sake of accuracy but fine overall condition and not one but two bugs crawling among those roses...
length 9 inches, no monogram, excellent condition. When it comes to Acorn we've always felt that the sinuous bit of floral chasing where tines meet handle is what separates the men from the boys (can one still say such a thing without ending up like Larry Summers?)-- some pieces have it, and some don't. Please have a closer look, in photo number three.
