It is marked for the partnership of "Gould, Stowell & Ward," which was one of the associations in which James Gould, born 1795 in Salem, Massachusetts, participated as a principal.
Other marks are "Baltimore," "Patent 1850," and "11-12," for the local assay mark, which at .917 is midway between coin and sterling silver...
Price for the set of six.
In the "Angelo" pattern dating from 1910, they were made by the J.B. & S.M. Knowles company of Providence, Rhode Island, and retailed by "A. Frankfield" of New York City, and so marked, along with "Sterling" and "Pat."
Each one is engraved "Zorah" in script, set sideways on the handle...
Individual pieces are characteristically large scaled and heavy, and those aspects show in this 7 1/4" long, nearly 3.1 T. oz., gravy ladle.
It has a 1" deep shell bowl with a flaring heel.
Never monogrammed, this is in very fine estate condition...
This item, which is stamped "E.A...
Price per piece, two available.
The pattern, "La Reine," was made by Reed & Barton and first issued in 1893.
It incorporates a high relief, leaf and scroll motif, which apropos of the name, exhibits a French design influence.
Never monogrammed, it is in very good condition, with the only signs of use being light surface scratches consistent with age...
Delicate in portraiture, the design resembles the company's "Buttercup" as well as Watson's "Meadow Rose," both from the same general period.

This example is based on a 5 7/16" long, just over .6 T. oz., fork in Whiting's "Louis XV" pattern. It is fitted with a finger slot (with trim matching the pattern) on the back, intended to direct the way the child would hold the piece.
Clearly novel, and perhaps widely embraced, as a Google search turns up contemporaneous advertisements appearing...
Multi-motif, it features a variety of dense, low relief, floral images, all portrayed on irregularly shaped handles with a raised border on the backsides that resembles bamboo. This detail suggests an Aesthetic influence, and is some similar to Tiffany's "Lap-Over-Edge," introduced five years after "Bouquet."
This example is a 6 1/4" long, 1.2 T. oz., sauce or ...
The scale of pieces in this pattern is large, as evidenced by the fact that this 8 3/4" long, very heavy at 4.7 T. oz., piece is identified as a preserve spoon, when it is actually the size of a typical berry spoon.
Multi-motif, the portraiture on this is lily. The blossoms and leaves fold o...
Marked "Tiffany & Co." and "Sterling" on the blade, it is a non full line pattern identified by the number "830."
It dates about 1880, which time is reinforced by the "M" (for the directorship of Edward Moore) that appears on the blade, placing the date of manufacture between 1873 and 1891. Furthermore, the dense repousse and floral design resembles the company's "Chrysan...
Price for the two pieces.

Each piece is engraved "Ellen Burdett" in script on...
Price for the set of six.
The primary feature of the pattern is an apparent bat face situated at the end of the handle. This suggests some resemblance to a boar or devil as well.
Other design details include wings, and possibly toes, wrapping around both sides of the handle.
While not a line pattern, it has the plain, clean style of an Arts & Crafts piece, akin to Tiffany's "Gramercy" or "Hamilton," and, as do those pieces, likely dates from the second or third decade of the 20th century.
The handle wraps around to form an open loop.
Never monogrammed, it is in excellent condition....
While the marks are some rubbed, the maker's stamp is clear for Richard Gosling, London, and the date letter for 1733. Gosling must have been something of a scurrilous character as Grimwade's London Goldsmiths 1697-1837 notes, he was "tried and convicted [in 1742] for counterfeiting marks," although "This fall grace did not . . . put him out of bus...
The theme on this 7 3/8" long, very heavy at just under 3.8 T. oz., gravy ladle is "Paris, the son of Priam," which was one of seventeen different subjects offered in this line (William P. Hood Jr., Tiffany Silver Flatware).
It has a plain, oval, 2 3/8" by 2" by 3/8" deep, bowl, with a large classical face on the backside heel.
There is a block "K.L"...
The theme is the turned back margin on the reverse of the handle, which is the defining element of the pattern. Subsets of this include plain, acid etched, and applied groupings, and within the latter two, there are further, seemingly countless, flora and fauna themed, iterations.
This piece, a 7 1/8" long, approximately 2.0 T. oz., large sugar sifter is etched in what a...
