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)...

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.

These are three very good looking and heavy brass plated wall brackets which would hold a one-inch diameter rod which could be metal, glass or wood. They would make a stunning statement in a powder room or bathroom. They feel very hefty — each one weighs about one pound, fourteen ounces for a total of five pounds, ten ounces. The brackets would protrude 9¾ inches from a wall. The bases of the brackets are 5½ inches high by 2¾ inches wide. I would think these date from around 1910...

Rare antique glass from a French bar used to serve absinthe. This style is known as an East glass because it was supposedly used in the East of France, in areas around Lyon. This is a heavy, hand-blown glass with a polished pontil. It has a dose mark marking the level to which it was filled with absinthe. Water was added to the liquor, making a cloudy drink. I personally like the glasses with dose marks because you can be sure they were used for a drink like absinthe to which water was added...

French absinthe era bar saucer with 5 franc price and scarce silver-gilt rim and line decoration. Less saucers were made with high prices on them and are consequently harder to find. Most saucers of this pre-ban period had considerably lower prices on them. This is a guaranteed genuine turn-of-the-century saucer or soucoupe from the Belle Epoque when poets and artists drank the addictive wormwood-based drink absinthe, which was banned in France in 1915...
