with "alligator skin" surface and applied calling card. 4 1/8 by 2 3/8 inches; one corner has a bit of a bruise (see second photo) but fine overall condition; no monogram!! It is most unusual to find a good looking Victorian case that will fit a modern size business card, and has not been engraved.

"God save our gracious Queen, Long live our Noble Queen" and I'll spare you the rest. Just be grateful that we don't have MP-3 files jangling away in the background! Here, the Queen is applied in gold on a field of concentric circles to a pair of round sterling cufflinks just shy of 5/8 inches in diameter. No monogram, very good condition, maker's mark SJR, London 1952.

with finely executed naturalistic engraving, matte finish, gilt interior, 2 3/4 inches high, top diameter: 2 inches, weight 3 oz. Troy, monogrammed "B.K" and something else (in Russian script) which you can see it in photo number three. A kind reader has told us that it means "to your health." There was one small dent that's been tapped out, and it's good work. Aside from that the condition is excellent. Click your mouse and then reach for the vodka; this is a lovely piece of silverware.

Alas, so are we. After 26 years, the Boston Antique Coop II is closing its doors. This, as they say, is due to circumstances beyond our control. Along with my colleagues John, Lolly, Gerry, Françoise, Rosemary, Brian, and Jackie let me offer a heartfelt thanks to all the folks who helped make our shop a success. Will we open another retail location? There are no immediate plans, but stay tuned to this spot...

7 7/16 inches long; fine condition; marked "H.H. PAT. 1866 2" and "LARMOUR & CO. / COIN"; monogrammed "T.A.S" (please view photo number two to see this and Satan's second appearance here on the little web page). Do you recall that sometimes the blades of these knives are wonderfully engraved with ivy and anthemions? Well don't get your hopes up because this one is perfectly plain...

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
$575.00
Kheechong, Canton circa 1825, length 13 1/2 inches, weight 8.43 oz. Troy, monogrammed "DR". Heavy and in excellent condition, with the classic "inset v" construction on both shells (front & back), bold shell drop (please see third photo). A superb example from the China Trade period, there is but one caveat here: someone has substantially removed the mark (ideogram - K.H.C. - monarch), and it is now only visible in outdoor lighting, with the back tilted at just the right angle.

silver polish. Folks often come into the shop and ask what I use to make all of our silver look so splendidly handsome. (Then again, there are others who want to know why the proprietor is so decidedly unkempt, but we won't get into that.) I've decided to unleash the secret and perhaps earn a buck or two in the process. This is the ten ounce size, and yes it truly does retard tarnish formation. Rose & Vase not included.

6 1/4 inches; no monogram; excellent condition. These are made from two spoons joined together by a (silver) spring device. I can anticipate questions such as "How do you know that this is original, not just a couple of spoons mated up?" or "Has Cherner flipped his wig?" To answer the first, there are at least three clues: the spoons are uncharacteristically straight, the mark is further from the bowl than one would expect it to be, the color of the spring is an exact match for the spoons...

A decent piece of Baltimore engraved coin silver, 9 1/8 inches long, good condition, monogrammed "Clintonia" (please see second photo). As to what this might comprise (cigars? a large kneehole desk?) one can only speculate, but Yours Truly will exercise restraint before he gets himself into trouble, though more astute readers tell me that in actual fact it's simply a flower...
