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.

One would be hard-pressed indeed to find a better set of dinner forks.

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.

Though English items in Fiddle Shell and Thread are common, American examples are quite scarce and those in such exemplary condition nearly non-exist...

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.

with broad double swell fiddle and short front midrib decoration, length 7 1/4 inches, weight 6.14 Troy ounces, monogrammed "EGM" (script, obverse), superb condition.

McDannold first worked in Mt. Sterling, then in Covington. Though his work is not quite so scarce as that of some other makers, it is quite a happy event indeed to find a set of Kentucky spoons in such exemplary condition.

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.

length 5 3/4 inches, weight .77 oz. Troy, excellent condition, monogrammed "S". It is safe to assume that the olive fork was made in at least two sizes, this being the shortest.

These are particularly choice examples, extra heavy, with excellent detail and die depth. To my eye, this is one of R & B's most attractive designs. For further discussion of what makes a pattern aesthetically successful, see Design New England, November-December 2012, pp. 60-64

Leveridge was part of a prominent New York family, many of whom were attorneys. His grandfather John William Chase Leveridge (please see fourth photo) served in the war of 1812, and upon his death in 1886 was the oldest living lawyer in the city. According to the New York Times' obituary, "he retained the full use of his faculties up to the time of his death," an accomplishment to which we all m...

with high relief cast bust of Van Dyck, length 9 inches, weight 3.24 Troy ounces, no monogram. Truly one of Antoine Heller's greatest designs, and among Gorham's most sculptural patterns.

There is a file cut (visible from side and reverse only; see fourth photo) which we've pictured in excruciating detail, and some light pitting on the blade which we've mostly polished out and probably will address a bit more, as time allows. Aside from this, the condition is excellent.

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.

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
P.O.R.
Philadelphia circa 1790, a fine, large and massive piece, length 14 inches, length of bowl five inches, weight 6.87 Troy ounces, marked JA struck twice in cut cornered rectangle. There is a minor fill at the edge of the bowl (please see fifth photo) and some scratches on reverse, but excellent overall condition.

This spoon is not monogrammed and does not appear ever to have been, which is most unusual for early American silver.
