Price per piece, two available.
The pattern, "La Reine," was made by Reed & Barton and first issued in 1893.
It incorporates a high relief, leaf and scroll motif, which apropos of the name, exhibits a French design influence.
Never monogrammed, it is in very good condition, with the only signs of use being light surface scratches consistent with age. The bowl remains well-shaped a...
Delicate in portraiture, the design resembles the company's "Buttercup" as well as Watson's "Meadow Rose," both from the same general period.
This example is a large, 8" long, heavy at 2.1 T. oz., solid silver tomato server.
An early piece, this has decorated shoulders on the 3" diameter, reticulated blade. This detail appears...
It dates from the mid 19th century and carries multiple marks, which include "Bailey & Co. Chestnut St. Phila." in an arc around "136," which was the number for the building the firm occupied 1848-56. Additionally, there is a "lion, S, shield" pseudo hallmark flanked by two more lions.
The shield is thought to indica...
This example is based on a 5 7/16" long, just over .6 T. oz., fork in Whiting's "Louis XV" pattern. It is fitted with a finger slot (with trim matching the pattern) on the back, intended to direct the way the child would hold the piece.
Clearly novel, and perhaps widely embraced, as a Google search turns up contemporaneous advertisements appearing...
Price for the pair.
While modest and unpresuming in terms of function, size, and design, this pair of matching, 3 3/4" long, .5 T. oz. combined, master salt spoons nonetheless reflect the full quality of craft for which the firm was known.
They have broad, upturned, "Tipt" ends, beveled edge handles...
Multi-motif, it features a variety of dense, low relief, floral images, all portrayed on irregularly shaped handles with a raised border on the backsides that resembles bamboo. This detail suggests an Aesthetic influence, and is some similar to Tiffany's "Lap-Over-Edge," introduced five years after "Bouquet."
This example is a 6 1/4" long, 1.2 T. oz., sauce or ...
Judging from this example, which is a 5" long by 3 1/4" high to the rim, 5 1/4" to the top of the upraised handle, and relatively heavy at 5.2 T. oz., basket, the firm made high quality reproduction pieces.
This would be a fitting size for candies or bon bons.
This is Georgian in manner, with an oval bowl with raised ends sitting on a square base, pe...
The scale of pieces in this pattern is large, as evidenced by the fact that this 8 3/4" long, very heavy at 4.7 T. oz., piece is identified as a preserve spoon, when it is actually the size of a typical berry spoon.
Multi-motif, the portraiture on this is lily. The blossoms and leaves fold o...
Marked "Tiffany & Co." and "Sterling" on the blade, it is a non full line pattern identified by the number "830."
It dates about 1880, which time is reinforced by the "M" (for the directorship of Edward Moore) that appears on the blade, placing the date of manufacture between 1873 and 1891. Furthermore, the dense repousse and floral design resembles the company's "Chrysan...
Price for the pair.
The style suggests a date from early in their history. They have slender shanks, down turned, "Reverse Tipt," ends, and exposed drops on the heel reverses.
Each one is engraved in a fancy, feathered script, "TM" monogram se...
With a date circa 1880, and although unmarked likely English in origin, it is a large, oval, silverplate biscuit barrel, with the tin itself measuring 7" by 5 1/2" by 5" to the rim and 7 1/2" to the top of finial.
This is attached to an 8 1/2" by 6 1/2" tray that stands on four, 1" tall, feet, each with an anthemion design.
The body and lid are inscribed with a series of embellished medallions, rope and bell...
Price for the two pieces.
The line is number "26," by Whiting, and this number, along with the company "lion" logo and "Sterling," appears on the backsides of this youth set, comprised of a 6 3/8" long fork and 5 7/8" long spoon, with a combined weight of 2.1 T. oz.
Each piece is engraved "Ellen Burdett" in script on...
A souvenir item, the handle portrays a standing miner wearing boots and a hat, holding a chunk of ore in his left hand and with his right hand leaning on a crow bar or such.
The figure is standing on a base that reads, "Struck it at last."
The caricature is sculp...
Price for the set of six.
The primary feature of the pattern is an apparent bat face situated at the end of the handle. This suggests some resemblance to a boar or devil as well.
Other design details include wings, and possibly toes, wrapping around both sides of the handle.
While not a line pattern, it has the plain, clean style of an Arts & Crafts piece, akin to Tiffany's "Gramercy" or "Hamilton," and, as do those pieces, likely dates from the second or third decade of the 20th century.
The handle wraps around to form an open loop.
Never monogrammed, it is in excellent condition....
Price per piece, two available.
A "Tipt" or "Fiddle Tipt" pattern, it is marked "Perry O. Daniel" and "Standard," which is a regional term for coin silver.
Catherine Hollan in Philadelphia Silversmiths identifies the maker as Oliver Perry O'Daniel, born in Wilmington, Delaware, and working in Philadelphia 1836-52.
It has high, angled and...
The theme on this 7 3/8" long, very heavy at just under 3.8 T. oz., gravy ladle is "Paris, the son of Priam," which was one of seventeen different subjects offered in this line (William P. Hood Jr., Tiffany Silver Flatware).
It has a plain, oval, 2 3/8" by 2" by 3/8" deep, bowl, with a large classical face on the backside heel.
There is a block "K.L"...
The theme is the turned back margin on the reverse of the handle, which is the defining element of the pattern. Subsets of this include plain, acid etched, and applied groupings, and within the latter two, there are further, seemingly countless, flora and fauna themed, iterations.
This piece, a 7 1/8" long, approximately 2.0 T. oz., large sugar sifter is etched in what a...
