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.

Sterling silver soup ladle by the most famous woman silversmith of all time -- Hester Bateman. It has a period script monogram (we think it is a "T") and measures 12 1/8 inches long. There are some minor bruises on one side of the bowl; this really does not detract from the piece but is mentioned just for completeness of description. More photos are available and can be emailed on request.

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)...

Bin labels were used to identify sections or bins in wine cellars. This is a vintage French enamel on metal bin label, dating from the early 1900’s, for CHAMPAGNE. Bin labels for champagne are among the most desirable. It was used for decades and shows some chipping to the enamel (which is usual on enamel labels, especially around the holes where nails were used to affix them). On this one there is some in-painting to some of the damage on some letters...

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...
