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Though this mark would appear to be previously unpublished, we are attributing it to Horace, since the only other possible firm might have belonged to Hiram Hotchkiss, who would have been ten or twenty years old when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

length 12 1/2 inches, weight 6.0 Troy ounces, monogrammed "J.E.L." in period script with flourishes, marked A.L. Coan Mobile" in serrated rectangle.

The bowl has a few more scratches than we'd like to see, and a small dip at the edge which we show in excruciating detail (see third photo), but all in all a pleasant and substantial item which presents itself quite well.

length 7 5/8 inches, weight 1.84 Troy ounces, monogrammed as shown in second enlargement, gilt bowl, outstanding original condition. Concerning the engraving, both the quality of design and the execution are far above average.

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.

top diameter 9 1/2; bottom 4 1/8 inches, no monogram, weight 29.4 Troy ounces, craftsman Herbert Taylor, excellent condition.

Stone's workshop made this item in at least four sizes. The larger two required substantial time in the making, and are scarce by comparison to their smaller peers. It is also unusual find an example which has never been engraved, since these were most often made as presentation pieces.

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.

Why? Because Gorham made a bit of a bargain with the devil, and used .950 or .9584 silver to...

May I offer our apologies, dear reader, for having previously catalogued these as "Acorn"? Old age is taking its toll, here.

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. This handsome pair was given as a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary...

Philadelphia circa 1795, with applied beaded border, square base, sunken center and handle offset to the corners, height 6 3/4 to top of spout; base 2 1/2 inches, weight 5.70 Troy ounces, monogrammed I * A on foot.

There is some rather sloppy soldering on the beaded border beneath the spout (I do not believe this to be a repair) which we show in agonizing detail, see image four, and the overall color indicates that there may have been a removal at some point in time. However, on the wh...

New York circa 1825, length 12 1/2 inches, weight 4.52 Troy ounces, monogrammed "M" in period script with flourishes. There is a slight abrasion above the initial, and some very minor scratches in bowl as shown in enlargements three and four but the overall condition is outstanding.

Maltby Pelletreau was the second generation of this illustrious silversmithing family. His partnership with Bennett and Cook lasted only three years, so the date range for this item is pleasantly narrow. Thei...
