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. The also retain their original bobeches whose gardrooned decoration happily echoes the gardrooning on the bases. These were cast in two parts; we have a photo of the top without the bobeche showing the seam lines at the corners...

Good early 18th century octagonal base case candlestick of French origin. It is quite hefty (weight: one pound, seven ounces) and stands 8¼ inches tall. It has a strong knop which enhances its appearance; it is carefully finished with etched lines on the base and shaft. You might also note how nicely the maker has finished the underside of the base, even including etched lines there. There is an ejector hole to help remove the burnt down stubs...

One of the most desirable New York Federal silversmiths, Daniel Van Voorhis, made these tablespoons circa 1785. They have dragon head crests (crests are fairly rare on American silver) and the best Van Voorhis hallmark (initials with full last name and eagle), and good slashed drops. They are in excellent condition with virtually no tipwear evident. They are 8 7/8 inches long and weigh 4 ounces and 2+ pennyweights (Troy). More photos are available and can be emailed on request.

Very nice early 17th century bronze mortar and pestle, probably from the Le Puy area of central France which had many foundries in that era. Note the good detail in the vertical elements. It is about 2.8 inches tall while the top diameter is 4.7 inches. It is heavy and has a good patina. We believe the pestle is original to the mortar.

Full title is: American Silver 1655-1825 in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts Boston by Kathryn C. Buhler. This two volume hardcover book was published in 1972 and came in a slipcase. 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.

The enamel work done by Gorham in the late 19th century is considered to be of top quality and it is also extremely scarce. Here is a rare set of six beautifully crafted spoons in which every detail displays the high standards of the Gorham factory at that time: the enameling is crisp and wonderfully colored; the twisted stems have in their crease a delicate raised rope-like pattern, and the silver is gold washed...

Particularly handsome pierced olive spoon in the rare Dauphin pattern by Durgin, first made in 1897. Just a tad longer than 6 inches, this piece is skillfully pierced and very well finished on front and back, a sign of the care lavished on American sterling flatware by the better manufacturers in the late 19th century. There is a delicate script monogram on the back of the handle. More photographs are available and can be emailed on request.

Very good quality cast Sterling Madeira wine ticket in the vine and tendril shape made by Gorham in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, bearing the company's date mark for 1895. Being cast, this has a substantial feel rather than the tinniness one encounters in stamped labels. Maximum width is 3 inches.

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)...
