Made by the same company that produced such premier patterns as "Love Disarmed" and "Les Six Fleurs," "Intaglio" stands with those designs as an outstanding, early 19th century, Art Nouveau pattern. As the name implies, the imagery is inset in the silver, as well as raised up.

It is a floral, multi-motif line, with the name of the particular flower identified on the backside of each piece...

A fully authentic example, that is, not made up or custom made, this butter pick measures 6 1/8" long and is relatively heavy at just over .6 T. oz.

The pattern is Durgin's 1895 "Empire." Apropos of the name, the main feature is a crown, combined with cornucopia, a torch, a garland, and floral elements, all offered in a French manner.

A slender piece, it has the twist end tip characteristic of this form. The backside of the handle is engraved "Austin" in script...

A late 19th century figural design that features classical motifs, "Coligni" joins such storied Gorham patterns as "Versailles" and "Mythologique" in occupying a commanding place in the world of silver flatware manufacturing.

This example is a 7" long individual salad or fish fork. Commensurate with the line, it is very heavy at 1.7 oz.

It is in very good condition. Somewhat polished, there is some softening of detail on the design, but overall the detail remains distinct...

An early 20th century design, Gorham's "Old French was a well-received pattern that remains popular today. The simplicity of the lined border, slightly bulbous design provided a visual respite to the flourish of Art Nouveau style dominant in the period, as well as the congestion of some immediately preceding-in-time Victorian forms.

This example is a 6 3/4" long fruit knife. It is an original item, factory made and original issue...

International's "Brandon" is a unembellished design that dates from 1913. It appears to derive from the same Colonial Revival impulse that generated such contemporaneous popular designs as Durgin's "Fairfax," Gorham's "Plymouth," and Towle's "Mary Chilton," among others.

This example is a 3 7/8" long, .4 T. oz., child's food pusher.

It is a completely original, factory produced, item, not made up. The flat blade is 1 1/2" wide and has rounded shoulders...

An early example of Tiffany's "Japanese," to be distinguished from the later reissue "Audubon," this piece is marked "Tiffany & Co.," "Sterling," "M," and "Pat. 1791."

It is a 7" long, substantial weight at 1.5 T. oz., (sweet) jelly spoon. Smaller than a berry or preserve spoon, and larger than a sugar, this seems to be a scarce form in this line. It has a scalloped edge bowl, with slight ribbing on the sidewalls. It retains a portion of its original gold wash...

International's "Avalon" is a turn of the 20th century design. It incorporates high relief, scroll, acanthus leaf, and shell motifs which combine to evoke the mythical island from which the line takes its name. There is also a lion's face cleverly hidden in the detailing of the midpoint of the handle.

This item is an uncommonly found toast or bread fork (which is similar to a spinach fork in some patterns).

It measures 7 3/8" long overall and weighs 1.3 T. oz.

Each of these two matching dinner forks bears full hallmarks for London, 1829, Sterling, and a "C pellet S" maker's stamp for Charles Shipway.

They measure 8 1/8" long, large by American standards but not so for English, and are heavy, weighing 4.6 T. oz. the pair.

They are a plain fiddle tipt design and without monograms or inscriptions, or removals of same.

The condition is excellent. The only signs of use are very slight tip wear on the tines, more so on one fork, and shallow kni...

This pair of coffee spoons were made by well known English makers Samuel Godbehere and Edward Wigan. The date mark places them 1794-1796. This pair of makers are quoted in Jackson's Hallmarks as "Good, general makers of usually small pieces, spoons, cream jugs, etc." They weigh a combined .7 T. oz. and measure 4 3/4". These spoons are in very good to exceptional condition. They show some minor rippling to the edge of the bowls but no tip wear, which is usually seen in pieces of this age. Th...

Priced as a pair.
Open salts were a staple on any Victorian table. They were produced in a variety of materials, including glass, ceramic, and as the case with this pair, in silver.

No company generated more examples of this form than Gorham. Indeed, the Tompkins book on this subject documents a full century of Gorham's production.

According to Tompkins, this set, item number 2480, dates to 1890. They possess a commanding look. They are large, 4 1/2" long, 1 3/4" tall, and weighty, 3.9 T. oz. combine...

Measuring 4" long, this size spoon is often identified as demitasse, although the original Towle catalog for "Old Colonial" labels it a coffee spoon.

This pair, which together weigh .8 T. oz., are early examples in immaculate condition and without a monogram or removal. The bowls retain their original gold washes.

They are both marked with the Towle emblem, the word "Sterling," "925/1000," and one them also reads "Pat. 1895."

Marked with the Whiting lion emblem, "Sterling," and the model number "2524," this c. 1885 matching pair of master salts are of a singular style. Each one measures 1" high, has a base diameter of 1 1/2", a top diameter of 3", and weighs approximately 1.1 T. oz, a little over 2.2 T. oz. together.

There is a wide, 3/4", rim encircling the relatively deep, gold washed bowls and this has a formed surface that is no doubt inspired by the Aesthetic taste. The imagery is organic, leafy and sinuou...
