Silver scholar and author D. Albert Soeffing describes this portrait as "a rather plain woman," and though it lacks the sophistication of some Medallions, there is a certain undeniable charm to her face. A great entry level item for the budding silver collector, should such a creature still exist...

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).

Knives are always tough to find in antique King's and related patterns. These are especially well suited to use, with their stainless blades by Robert F. Mosley of Sheffield which look to have been done in the 1930's. About as close as we get to shabby chic...

Gale & Mosely, New York circa 1830, double struck-- for the uninitiated, this means the pattern is both front and back, length just shy of 8 1/2 inches, some very slight tine wear on a few (we've pictured the worst one in enlargement number four) but superb overall condition, weight 30.74 Troy ounces (!!) or 2.79 each on average, no monogram.

While the dates for this firm are generally given as 1837-1850, the style and construction of this spoon is would tend to indicate that it was made several years before 1837...

DeMatteo produced objects for Colonial Williamsburg, and often used designs by the 18th century Virginia silversmith James Geddy as his inspiration. These were marked I ˖ G in addition to the usual trademarks (see third photo).

Over the years, we've bought and sold more than a few items by the DeMatteo family. This is unquestionably the best we've had the privilege to offer.
