This large ladle, well wrought by the most prominent silversmith of Reading, Pennslvania, is at first sight startling in its elegance. The long neck and thin fiddle terminal, graced by a finely engraved script monogram, make it an exceptional piece for the period when forms often were clumsy. The overall balance of design is remarkable. It dates to about 1820. Mannerback, who was born on August 4, 1762, learned the jewelry trade which he carried on for more than 50 years...

Sauce label for KETCHUP made in England around 1810 and remaining in very good condition. This is Old Sheffield Plate (OSP), but the silver is in very good shape with only the very slightest blush showing on a few of the beads at the top. It is 1⅜ inches wide and about ½-inch high. A nice addition for your collection of bottle labels or tickets or just fun if you like ketchup.

The individual volumes never had dust jackets. This is an essential reference work if one is a serious collector of or dealer in early American silver. The illustration shows the front and back of the slipcase. This is a crisp new copy that has never been used.

There is a delicate script monogram on the back of the handle. More photographs are available and can be emailed on request.

Marrow scoops are easy to find, though very nice. Marrow spoons are few and far between. This is a shell-back George II marrow spoon by the renowned London silversmith Ebenezer Coker, with the date mark for 1750. It has a nice shell and period block initials on the back. The marks are easily readable which is not the way you always find them on bottom marked pieces. The piece is 8 3/8 inches long and shows a slight bit of tip wear...

Beautiful French silver wine bottle ticket or label with an open slot into which you can put a card with the name of whatever wine you have in your bottle or decanter. The decoration has an anthemion at the top and a foliate border at the bottom but if you look at it with a different eye it appears like a face with eyes at the upper corners with a bushy moustache above a crescent-shaped mouth -- maybe reflecting the silversmith's sense of humor...

I have long felt that Gorham's Newcastle pattern, which dates from 1895, was underrated. It is a handsome beaded design with interesting serving pieces, and the pieces are usually hefty. This fork and spoon in this set measure a tad longer than 9 inches and retain their original gilt in the bowls. There is a period script monogram "T" on the handles (a photograph of the monogram is available and can be emailed on request)...
