Dating from 1880, Whiting's "Heraldic" is an emblematic pattern.

It features a well-constructed, high relief, "sculptured" in effect, portraiture of a knight's helmet surrounded by leafy scroll detailing. Double die struck, the pattern appears on both sides of the handle, which in this instance is engraved "ELG to SMS" in fine script.

This example is a 6 3/16" long oyster or seafood cocktail fork. The line is heavy and that is case with this which is relatively weighty at .6 T. oz...

A 6" long, just under 1.0 T. oz., item, this ladle has a bowl that measures 2" in diameter and is 1/2" deep.

It is a cream or sauce ladle in Whiting's "Heraldic," which appropriately enough is dominated by the image of a medieval helmet set at the top of the handle. The remainder of the design incorporates a dense array of high relief, scrolling acanthus leaves.

The bowl is the less common of two that Whiting used in this line...

Originated by New York's Henry Hebbard, "Ivy" is more identified with Whiting which offered it as a full line pattern.

The design incorporates a banded ivy border and trailing ivy vines and berries on the shank, and a single ivy leaf at the top of the handle. The dominating feature is the face of a satyr-like figure that appears at the top center of the handle.

This example is a 6 7/8" long, 1.2 T. oz., dessert or oval soup spoon...

The naturalistic "Ivy" motif of this c. 1875, 7 7/8" long, approximately 1.2 T. oz., cream or sauce ladle is to be distinguished from Whiting's line pattern of the same name.

The latter was a die struck design originated by Henry Hebbard, while this is a labor intensive, built up, piece made from cast leaves joined to a wire stem that in turn is wrapped with smaller wires made to resemble tendrils. The entire shank and leaves have a matte gold finish...

Whiting produced two variants of a "Lily of the Valley" pattern. One was a full line design, and the other was limited to certain serving forms and smaller pieces.

This 6 1/8" long, approximately .4 T. oz., butter fork or pick is an example of the limited production series.

It has a twisted shank, with a cast rather than die struck cluster of blossoms on the end of the handle. These hang to the side on openwork stems...

Whiting's and Gorham's Lotus are nearly twin patterns, although there are subtle differences. The primary distinguishing feature is the number of lotus fronds in the design, Gorham having three and Whiting, as with this piece, having five.

They are both products of the c. 1870 Egyptian Revival movement and are patterns that have never lost appeal.

This example is a 10 1/8" long, 2.0 T. oz., ice cream server...

Grandly scaled at 14 1/2" long, 4.9 T. oz., this solid sterling item is a true punch ladle with a 4 5/8" by 2 5/8" by 1 1/4" deep bowl that has pouring spouts on either side.

An elegant pattern as it stands, this 6 1/8" long, approximately .8 T. oz., sugar sifter (that could also function as a tea strainer) in Whiting's 1885 "No. 1" appears even more refined with its overall, deep, bronze-hued, gold wash.

The handle is open, featuring trellis like borders that are interspersed with trailing posies or similar flower. The mid portion of the handle is demarcated by a single blossom set against a shell, while the area below this has an Aesthetic style scrolling desi...

Whiting's 1890 "Ivory" pattern is an amalgamation of sterling silver and other material. This example is a 6 5/16" long sugar spoon.

It is marked with the Whiting emblem, the word "Sterling," and the number "2888" on the reverse heel of the spoon.

There is no monogram or removal.

It is in excellent condition. The handle is free of cracks, splits or other damage. Apart from a slight spot where the gold shows polishing wear, the bowl is flawless, and absent dings, dents, or burrs.

Dating from 1880, Whiting's "Persian" is a Moresque design deriving from the same sensibilities that generated Tiffany's pattern of the same name, as well as Whiting's own "Arabesque" and Gorham's "Hindostanee" among others. This example is a 7 1/2" long, 1.5 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon. It has the plum-shaped bowl with flanged rim and central rib that Whiting used across several lines of the period. Persian has a reserve area at the front of the handle which is a natural location for an ...

A pattern identified in both the singular and plural, the origins of Whiting's "Rose(s) & Scroll(s)" is encased in some mystery. It does not show up in standard references, so its story is vague.

Dating from about 1890, it expresses both Aesthetic and Art Nouveau sensibilities.

Stylized rose blossoms appear to float amid a cloud-like setting framed by the scrolls. The design reflects a wispy and ethereal quality, with the imagery seeming to be disembodied from any real world connection...

This wine goblet is the equivalent in size to a small chalice. It stands 6 1/2" tall and rests on a stemmed base that measures 3 3/16" in diameter. It weighs 5.3 T. oz.

The bowl is large, extending 2 7/8" from base to rim, is the same dimension across, and holds a full 8 oz. of liquid.

The body of the bowl is engraved in an anthemion motif lending it a classical look. There is a reserve area that is absent a monogram or removal.

It is in excellent condition. It sits evenly and ha...

Pricing for the pair as a set.
One of numerous twisted handle patterns that Whiting produced c. 1880, this fork and spoon pair have a spiral lower section and a larger, blocky, square twist upper end.

While a salad set, either piece could be used independently.

They are substantially sized items, with the fork measuring 9 1/4" long and weighing 1.9 T. oz., and the spoon 9 1/8" long and 2.2 T. oz.

The serving ends shows an Aesthetic influence, with their irregular, scalloped shoulders and rippled bowls. This latter...

An established silversmith with working dates about 1932-58, Newark's William B. Meyers was particularly known for making silver miniatures.

Apart from this, he was a well-regarded producer of Arts & Crafts items as well as reproduction pieces.

This 2 7/8" tall, 3 1/2" maximum width, 4.8 T. oz. footed bowl falls generally in the later category. The style bespeaks American design from the 1860s. It has a repeating pattern around the 2 5/8" diameter upper rim, and three cast, decorative ...

It was made by New York City's William Gale, who operated in various partnerships over a long history. This has double marks for one of the associations, "William Gale & Son." One of the stamps includes a diamond imprinted with the date "185x," with the final number obscur...

A well regarded and important name in American silver manufacture for half of the 19th century, William Gale worked by himself and in several partnerships over time. This 7" long, almost 1.4 T. oz., sugar sifter is marked "W. Gale & Son 925 Sterling," which is a pairing that dated 1862-66.

The style is very much of the period. It has a twisted stem with a notched and engraved handle end. This is inscribed with a script "GDS" monogram surmounted by a shield with an emblem inside it that lo...
