This 4" round, 5/8" high, just under 2.0 T. oz. shallow dish resting on four ball feet presents as rather mysterious in purpose, save that it is identified in Gorham's 1890 catalogue (see image 2).

Stamped with the company "lion, anchor, G", emblem, "Sterling," and model number "456" on the underside, it is actually part of a desk ensemble, namely the underplate, or as labeled, a tray, for a multi-lobed ink bottle...

While the actual pattern name "Wave Edge" applies to a line of silver produced by Tiffany & Co., the border on this 6" by 3 1/8", 1.7 T. oz., dresser, pin, or other tray can appropriately be described using the same descriptor.

It has a 1/2" high sidewall with a scalloped edge and a series of raised scrolls that appear to mimic breaking waves.

The center bottom of the piece has an oval dome that is engraved "HCE" in lined script. Ridges radiate out from this, suggesting a sunburst...

The marks on this 3 1/8" top diameter, 1 1/8" high, bowl standing on a 2" wide rim base and weighing a relatively heavy 2.9 T. oz., beg identification, although the quality of work bespeaks a skilled producer.

They are "MKH" and "JAH" in block lettering, "Hand Wrought," and "Sterling."

The piece is compellingly appealing in its simplicity of design, good heft, and the high quality of its workmanship...

This 6 5/8" long by 3 5/8" wide, by 3/4" high to the rim, and 1" to the tallest point, relatively weighty 3.2 T. oz., dish falls within two design categories.

The first is "Danish Modern," taking its inspiration from the style popularized early in the 20th century by Georg Jensen. It also embodies the clean, sleek, look of the "Mid Century Modern" mode, which actually dovetails with the Danish aesthetic.

It was made by the Webster Company, whose "CW with an arrow" emblem is stamped on t...

Likely dating from the 1880s, this 4 1/2" wide, 2" high to the rim, 4" to the top of the swing handle, 2.4 T. oz., basket, shows Aesthetic design influences.

The rim is scalloped and the tapered sidewalls are undulating. The solid handle is twisted, with a smooth, square, grip at the top.

There is a large scale representation of a wild rose blossom, branch, and leaves acid etched on the otherwise plain body. Acid etching is a technique that produces a more textured surface than simple e...

Standing 2 1/4" high on a rimmed base that is 3 1/4" across, and having a top diameter of 5", this round bowl weighs 6.1 T. oz.

It is stamped "S. Kirk & Son" in italics on the underside, which is a mark that Rainwater in "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers" dates 1880-90. It is also imprinted with the peculiar-to-Baltimore "11 oz." standard, which designates silver content more than coin and less than sterling.

The entire surface save for a reserve area that is engraved with ...
