length 7 inches, no monogram, some very slight wear to the high spots (please see second photo) but excellent overall condition and a rather tough item to find, these days.
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.
lovingly labeled "naive" patterns (see Soeffing, p. 95); 4 7/8 inches long; fine condition; no monogram; applied warrior's head in high relief surrounded by engraving; marked only "COIN 1".
height 1 5/8 inches excluding handle, length across spout 2 inches, a few minor dents which we intend to remove quite soon, if possible; hinge in excellent condition, no monogram.
Picture yourself out on the deck, nursing a pitcher of sangria and bemoaning the state of the economy. But wait, something is missing-- an elegant spoon to keep the lemon rinds from plopping into your drink!! Think ahead, click the mouse, order one up. Don't be caught in such a sorry state...
Length 5 7/8 inches, weight 1.18 Troy ounces, excellent condition, monogrammed "B" (obverse, Old English).
One of Frank Smith's better designs, and one of Yours Truly's favorite patterns...
A handsome (and now famous!) example of medallion jewelry, this pin features four different portraits. Length, 2 1/4 inches; excellent condition. Why is it famous? Please see Suzanne Marshall's fine new book "200 Years of American Manufactured Jewelry & Accessories", p. 45
warriors and one fair handsome maiden all of whom hang from a very Shiebler-esque pin so you can get the "look" for half the price! 2 7/8 inches long, no monogram, excellent condition, please see second photo for mark.
length 2 5/8; height 7/8 inches, excellent condition, no monogram. An especially fine example by this maker, whose jewelry tends to be a bit underrated (and undervalued) in the market at large.
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.
maker Ernest Eschwège, Paris circa 1920, sixteen by twenty-six inches, weight 82.6 Troy ounces, fine condition, no monogram.
With stylish foliate handles and an applied border, this is an exceptionally functional, high quality item.
It is also a bear to photograph, and these images sadly do not meet out usual standards. But have no fear, dear reader, we will try again, soon.
Shepard Mfg. Corporation, length 5 1/2 inches, fine condition, no monogram.
diameter thirteen inches, no monogram. This item does have some staining and pitting (see fourth photo). Although these issues have been addressed, our patience proved to be finite, and it is not in the usual Cherneresque condition. To make matters worse, someone has tried--and failed-- to efface the maker's mark. In any event, we're still pleased to offer a copper piece from this Boston master who usually worked in silver...
alas the bottom half only but at least you may use it to serve elegantly, weight 37 oz Troy, 12 3/8 X 9 3/8 X 2 inches, engraved with crest "stans cum rege" (standing with the King) as shown in photo number two.
London 1778, height 4 3/4; diameter 3 1/4 inches, weight 3.67 Troy ounces, a few very minor dents which won't show up in photos but fine overall condition (there's a bit of distress to the tip-- see fourth photo-- greatly enlarged here), monogrammed as shown.
The perfect gift for your wine loving friend, who will appreciate that the muslin ring remains present, when the time comes to decant that special bottle of port...
length 10 3/4 inches, weight 4.02 Troy ounces, excellent condition, monogrammed as shown in enlargement number three.
Over the years, we've bought and sold many King and King's variant items in coin silver, but this is a particularly fine example in terms of form, quality, and condition.
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.
