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
Sold
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.

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
Sold
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...

10 1/2 inches long; fine condition; monogrammed "MJM" (at end) in period script with flourishes; marked "BALL BLACK & CO / 950"; weight 6.5 oz. Troy. Also known as a "yoked" asparagus tongs, which sounds a bit bovine to these ears...

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...

Let's be optimistic and start off with the bull, which measures one inch long by 5/8 high, excluding pedestal. He is fully three dimensional and sports a pair of small (approximately 6 points each) but fully cut diamonds as befits such an enthusiastic fellow. The base is hand engraved with two stock symbols and prices: V 13 1/4, C 64, which no doubt had fond associations for the original owner...

Excellent condition, monogrammed "Theodora", looks like an ocean liner up there on your screen but actual length is 3 1/2 inches. Not an easy piece to find in this pattern.
