A superb example of a Georgian period mahogany tray, double banded in brass and with carved carrying handles. The vertical pieces are rabbeted into the bottom, making this a complex item to construct. Trays such as this reached their height of craftsmanship in the Regency period from 1800-1820 while George III was incapacitated. Condition is very good; there have been very minor repairs over time on the sides. Dimensions: 24 5/8 inches long; 15 5/8 inches wide; 2 1/8 inches high.

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...

Fine late Victorian English brass postal scale with malachite base by the renowned firm of Sampson Mordan & Co. These are particularly handsome because of the malachite which sits atop a larger piece of black marble. Looks great on a desk.

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...

Pair of cast square-based brass English candlesticks of classical style dating from the George III era, circa 1780. They make a nice presentation at their height of 10½ inches.

These were cast in two parts; we have a photo of the top without the bobeche showing the seam lines at the corners. There is some wear to the decoration from years of polishing and a very minor repair to the c...
