Arguably the line by which all other Art Nouveau floral designs are measured, Durgin's "New Art" embodies the exuberance, lushness, and freedom of expression that characterizes this style mode.

Dating from 1900, this example is a 9 1/4" long salad serving fork. A heavy line, this piece is especially so at 5.5 T. oz.

An early, fully original piece, marked with Durgin's "D" and "Sterling," the quality of this item stands out even within this extraordinary line...

Tiffany's earliest pattern issued after the company began manufacturing its own lines, "Tiffany" was also the firm's namesake design. It was later reissued with very slight modification under the name "Beekman," and is commonly recognized as that today.

There is another subtlety to the design that is evident on this example which is a 7" long, weighty at nearly 2.4 T. oz., gravy ladle.

Writing in "Tiffany Silver Flatware," William Hood notes that the antefix (the anthemion design on the...

This example is a 5 7/8" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz., sardine fork.

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...

In addition to the Stone "hammer" emblem, and the word "Sterling," this is imprinted with an "E" for George Erickson, working 1915-32. ...
