length 8 5/8 inches, weight 3.9 Troy ounces, monogrammed "B", outstanding original condition, marked "Shreve Crump & Low" with 925 in oval.

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...

Bored and in need of a new game? How about one that doesn't require a computer or, for that matter, electricity? Measuring 4 3/8 by 1 1/8 by 1 3/8 inches, this set will fit easily into your purse or briefcase, but at 31 oz. Troy (that's two pounds, two ounces in lay terms) it may weigh you down a bit. The case has some minor dents, as one might expect, from its occupants which are small and dense. There is also a spot on the "M" where the engraver bore down too hard and went through the cover...

One is just cause to raise the flag, but a pair? Splendid! These are oval, 2 1/8" X 1 3/8", and stand 1 3/4" off the table. Unmarked, but attributed by a VERY knowledgeable fellow to F.A. Durgin of St. Louis. I tried to put both in the same frame but couldn't get sufficient detail, thus the two similar looking enlargements. One has some dents of the type made by a small, sharp object on the back side, as shown in photo three . There is slight wear to the high-points. Overall, however, the ...

diameter 9 5/8; height 4 1/4 inches, weight 25 Troy ounces, fine condition, no monogram, craftsman Herbert Taylor. Please see third photo for marks.

This pattern, known as "berry in calyx", is among Stone's best designs. A nearly identical though not quite so desirable piece is held by Yale University Art Gallery, see Chickering p. 147, plate 134. Similar examples may also be seen in the collection of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, and the Detroit Institute of Arts.

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.

For those of you who did not get the chance to attend Brimfield this July in search of great antique silver, take heart. There was not much to be had. After a long day of shaking, nay thrashing the bushes, all we had to show for ourselves was this charming and well modelled little dog, length three inches, height 2 1/4 inches, excellent condition, unmarked.

Apparently doggie was once mounted on a plinth, as two of his paws have threaded holes (please see fourth photo).

comprising necklace (17 1/2 inches), bracelet (7 inches), brooch (1.75 inch diameter) and earrings. Excellent overall condition, though the safety needs to be reconnected and the threaded post-backs should be replaced with the "pinch" style backs (please see third photo).

Ruopoli worked for Black, Starr & Gorham in addition to making jewelry under his own name. He was a skilled modeller and his cast items are finely finished.
