An early 20th century design, Gorham's "Old French was a well-received pattern that remains popular today. The simplicity of the lined border, slightly bulbous design provided a visual respite to the flourish of Art Nouveau style dominant in the period, as well as the congestion of some immediately preceding-in-time Victorian forms.

This example is a 6 3/4" long fruit knife. It is an original item, factory made and original issue...

Most American silver manufacturers adopted a sterling standard over coin in the 1860s. For a short period of time, New York's Ball, Black & Co. promoted a higher silver content yet, namely 950 rather than 925.

This 6" long, approximately .8 T. oz., teaspoon is to this higher standard and so marked, along with the name of the company name.

It is a "Bead" design with an "Oval Thread" on the backside, both of which were standard patterns in the period...

Born in 1825 in Weymouth, Massachusetts, on Boston's South Shore, Asa Fairbanks Trufant is listed working as a merchant in nearby Abington, dying in 1879.

Given the "Fiddle Tipt" pattern on this 7 1/4" long, just over .8 T. oz., dessert or place spoon, it would have dated from his earliest working years.

It is monogrammed "JT to EJT" in fancy script lettering and is in exceptionally fine condition...

The piece is solid silver and has a rather thick handle and blunt end blade...
