Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
SOLD
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.

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
SOLD
length 8 3/8 inches, weight 3.09 Troy ounces, no monogram, slight wear to gilding on tines but very nearly benchmark condition, retailed by Sheafer and Lloyd of Pittsburgh.

This pattern has always been a personal favorite. Note the expressiveness of the eyes, which you may examine up close in photo number three.

Some might hold out for pie in the sky when they die, others would prefer to eat it now. We won't confess to endorsing either preference but will provide the right utensil for those who fall into category number two. Just shy of 7 1/4 inches long, excellent condition, monogrammed "LRM" (script, obverse, see third photo).

One of Yours Truly's favorite patterns because of the expressive eyes in this face. Please see all enlargements for detailed photos.

Most American silver manufacturers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries offered some variant of the Chrysanthemum pattern. As faithful readers of our little web page will know, here is my favorite one of them all. Perhaps it was their location (in Concord) near the wilderness of New Hampshire whe...

in exemplary condition, no monogram, richly gilt tines, length 7 3/8 inches, weight 1.95 Troy ounces, retailed by A. Stowell of Boston.

Our one complaint about this item, and it is a sin which time will cure, is that some over enthused polisher has dipped it in a liquid which shall not be named here, and removed the oxidation from the low points.

Chrysanthemum patterns were wildly popular in the 1880's. Tiffany, Gorham, Shiebler and other manufacturers all produced them, but this is certainly among the best of these designs.

By the way, dear reader, our late lamented S 7000 has finally died a peaceful death and we're using a rather primitive point and shoot until the new camera arrives, so please bear with our reduced quality images.

engraved "Kansas City" in bowl, length 5 7/8 inches, weight 1.30 Troy ounces, excellent condition.

Place pieces are much rarer than servers in this grand old Durgin pattern whose name is a subject of some disagreement, which leads me to believe that not many were produced.

For our first listing of 2018, let's return to some good old fashioned pattern silver, a subject in which few folks seem to have any interest but we'll give it a shot because I'm a glutton for punishment and thrive on rejection.

Retailed by Boston's own late lamented and very elegant Bigelow Kennard, this implement is 8 5/8 inches long, weighs 2.76 Troy ounces, has no monogram and is in excellent condition. If memory serves me correctly, this is the first pea spoon we've ever offered in...

retailed by Hardy & Hayes, length 7 3/8 inches, weight 15 Troy ounces, monogrammed "C", fine condition.

If pressed as to why you, dear reader, should buy these Iris fish forks as opposed to some others listed elsewhere on the interwebz, I'd have to say that ours are probably in better condition. If pressed even harder, I'd confess that these are also attractively priced.
