Dating from the mid 19th century, this matching pair of spoons are early production items from the New York City firm of Wood & Hughes.

A 6 3/4" long, relatively weighty at 1.4 T. oz. item, this small to medium sized serving spoon was produced by George Shiebler in the late 19th century.

The pattern name is "Sandringham" and the design is consistent with this appelation, in that it is English courtly.

The handle, which has beaded margins, is capped with what appears to be a near exact representation of the three feather herldic badge of the Prince of Wales.

An extraordinary design statement, this 5 5/8" diameter, over 2.4 T. oz., sterling plate was produced by a company, Unger Brothers, that was a pace setter for such work in both silver and jewelry in the late 19th through early 20th centuries.

Essentially decorative rather than utilitarian, it was likely meant to be gazed upon, like a plaque, or at best put into light service.

The entire piece is a representation of an iris blossom. The design is no less than ebullient, with the petals o...
