Whiting could easily have incorporated the rocaille design into the dies which were used to strike the body of this piece. Instead, they chose to use applied decoration along the foot and below the lid, a more difficult and costly technique. The resulting three-dimensionality lifts this tureen out of the realm of "good" and into that of "exceptional".

Readers of our little web page know that there's not much coin silver flatware here-- that is, pieces made between 1825 and 1868 in the good old U.S. of A. Why? Because most of it was thin, mass produced, and of inferior quality. Indeed, the majority of what we now see was made in New York, Boston or Philly and simply stamped with local marks.

But then again there are items such as this spoon by Joab Gillett of Cazenovia, a man who did actually work as a silversmith, which...

We've bought and sold many Jensen bracelets over the years and are well aware of the insults which they often suffer, but this one is free of deep scratches, hasn't been excessively polished, and has a wonderful smokey gray color.

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.

New York circa 1750, with round upturned end, spatulate midrib, long elliptical bowl and molded drop, length 7 3/4 inches, weight 1.72 oz. Troy.

There is slight tip wear from right handed use, a few minor insults to the bowl (including a scratch, reverse), and significant wear to the monogram "B / E * E". On the whole, however, this spoon presents itself well. To quote Quimby in American Silver at Winterthur, "Stoutenburgh left a small body of high quality work". Here is a chance to own...

We could only wish that it had a fine old family name but alas there is no engraving and happily no removal.

Though his working dates are commonly given as 1757-1788, Hitchcock was born in 1726 and would have typically completed his apprenticeship by 1744. This spoon, with its short front mid rib and elongated rat tail trailing out below a round drop is a close match for those in YUAG's collection (see Buhler ...

We'd never heard of "Taylord", but bought this thinking for sure that the name would turn up in some tome as a small production Arts & Crafts silversmith. No such luck. As it happens they were largely makers of (gasp!!) mid-grade costume jewelry, and this bracelet with individually cast links and hand set stones is probably the finest item the company eve...

set of six in original felt lined box, .800 standard, maker Fabbrica Argenteria Fiorentina circa 1935, total weight 3.86 oz. Troy, excellent condition, no monogram. These are well modelled and well executed. Each putto is full figural front and back. Though the little folks are cast from the same mold, each is carrying a different dish: soup, fish, fowl, eggplant, grapes, salad, and of course wine. An altogether charming way to guide your guests at table.

no, not that kind of a cat box, but a snuff box with "trap door" opening and secret compartment, 2 1/4 by 1 7/8 by 1 inches, weight 2.27 oz. Troy, marked with Chinese ideograms only (please see 5th photo).

In terms of construction, this is, not alas a first rate object. The edges don't quite meet up flush, the hinge is on the exterior rather than integral, and there are also a few minor bits of waviness on the front and side panels. However, the subject matter is totally charming, and t...
