A style mode that provided for a great diversity of expression and innovation, "mixed metal" pieces are among the most commanding of items produced by silver manufacturers during the late 19th century Aesthetic period.

Not surprisingly, the two dominant names in 19th century silver, Gorham and Tiffany, generated the greatest variety of pieces in this medium.

This example was made by Gorham in 1881, as indicated by the date letter imprinted on the backside...

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...
