Price per piece, four available.
Lengthy at 7 7/8" and heavy at 2.2 T. oz., this dinner fork is to a scale larger than most American examples of its circa 1870 period.

A plain, rounded "Antique" pattern with a "Tipt" backside and a formal script "EM" monogram on the front, and smooth, subtly soft finish, this is a statement in understatement.

In choice estate condition, it shows no polishing wear, and retains straight, even, and pointed tines...

It is solid silver, with a flat handle, and upper sawtooth edge blade, which is the defining characteristic of this form. The shoulders are embellished with the same leaf and flower components as the design.

One of the most imaginative American silver designers ever, George Shiebler's work in many instances went well beyond conventional constructs.

A product of the Aesthetic Movement and falling broadly within the "Medallion" category, what is now identified as his "Etruscan" or "Homeric" style, circa 1880, and subsequently imitated by other makers, is an example of Shiebler's probing and innovative instincts...

Measuring 7 1/4" long and weighing approximately 1.2 T. oz., this preserve or jelly spoon is marked "Sterling" without a maker's identification, although the style is suggestive of an 1870s New England or New York origin.

Slightly convex, the handle is otherwise plain, with a fan end and two nubs on either side about mid length and two notches at the join with the bowl. The surface is bright cut engraved with wriggle work detailing that points to Aesthetic sensibilities...

Building upon motifs drawn from classical mythology, Tiffany's "Olympian" is a highly expressive and intricately rendered design.

The theme on this slender, long handle, 6 5/8", weighty at 1.9 T. oz., cream ladle is "Sleeping Diana," which was one of seventeen different subjects offered in this line (William P. Hood Jr., Tiffany Silver Flatware).

It has a plain, oval, 1 7/8" by 1 5/8" by 1/2" deep, bowl, with a small animal head on the backside heel...

Patented in 1878, as imprinted on the backside of the blade, along with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, and the word "Sterling," "Hindostanee" is a Moorish design that particularly in its repetitive palmetto motifs, exhibits influences from the Greek and Egyptian Revivalist movements of the period.

This example of the line is a rather rare ice cream server, aka ice cream knife or cleaver...

Born in 1782, Horace Seymour Hinsdale enjoyed a long working career in New York City, spanning nearly all of the first half of the 19th century.

Early associated with the partnership of Taylor and Hinsdale, this example stamped only "Hinsdale" and with a "lion, W, bust" pseudo hallmark that McGrew in Manufacturers' Marks on American Coin Silver attributes to Jacob Wood, dates it to the 1830s or early 1840s.

The piece is an 8 1/2" long, relatively heavy at nearly 2.2 T...

Illustrated and identified in Gorham's 1888 catalogue as an "olive spoon and fork," this 12" long, 2.0 T. oz., piece embodies the aesthetic sensibilities of the period, evidenced by its naturalistic form.

The full length of the handle is nubby, slightly twisted, and stem like. The bowl is virtually a leaf, with piercings that resemble veins, and a surface that is engraved with additional leaves.

The applied olive and two leaves attached to the stem appear to grow out of it, and appear full...

The 1870s produced an abundant flowering of appealing designs from the New York City firm of Wood & Hughes, of which "Zephyr" is one.

This 8 3/8" long, 1.8 T. oz., serving spoon is a particularly fine example of the pattern, and fine piece overall.

Moorish or Renaissance Revival in style, with a repeating motif on the mid and lower portions of the handle, the pointed end has fins or wings that suggest an arch and thereby lend the design an architectural quality.

This area is plain and i...
