A grape motif dating from 1905, International's "Cloeta" reflects the abundantly expressive design sensibilities of its Art Nouveau period. It features high relief, intricately detailed grape clusters, leaves, and tendrils.

This group is a matching three piece place setting. It includes a dinner size knife that measures 9 7/8" long, a fork, commonly identified as regular size, that measures 7 1/4", and a 5 7/8" teaspoon.

This is a heavy line and that is the case with these pieces...

"Revere" is a pattern that dates from the same year, 1898, that a number of companies aggregated to form International Silver. This 8 3/4" long, weighty, 2.2 T. oz., cold meat or beef fork is stamped with the Indian head emblem of one of the component companies, "Wilcox & Evertsen."

The pattern is decidedly late Victorian, with abundant scroll detailing with floral embellishments. The design carries onto the cupped heel and shoulders of the four, slender tine, serving end...

A grape motif dating from 1905, International's "Cloeta" reflects the abundantly expressive design sensibilities of its Art Nouveau period. It features high relief, intricately detailed grape clusters, leaves, and tendrils.

In her work on Philadelphia silversmiths, Catherine Hollan indicates I[saac] Reed & Son may represent a partnership with "Osmond," 1830-40, or "G. Washington," 1844-53.

The "Reverse Tipt" design on the handle of this 5 1/2" long, not quite .5 T. oz., teaspoon which carries this mark, suggests the earlier years.

The piece presents in a diminutive manner that in its delicacy is appealing. It has a broad handle end, with high, beveled "fins" off the join with the bowl...

This c. 1865, coin silver ladle is unusual and appealing on multiple counts.

First is the 8 3/8" long size. Substantially larger than a gravy and markedly smaller than a soup or oyster, it was likely intended for serving bouillon. It weighs 1.6 T. oz.

Additionally, it was made by a well-known Philadelphia silversmith, James Butler...
