Exceptionally large for this form, this fully original, solid silver, tomato server measures 9" long and weighs 2.4 T. oz. It is substantial enough to lend itself to a variety of serving functions beyond its original purpose.

The pattern is Alvin's "Raleigh," issued in 1900. It is a fancy bead and scroll design, with an upturned handle end. The rounded blade has a slightly tapered edge and measures 3 1/2" by 3", has scalloped shoulders and an intricately cut surface...

A late 19th century figural design that features classical motifs, "Coligni" joins such storied Gorham patterns as "Versailles" and "Mythologique" in occupying a commanding place in the world of silver flatware manufacturing.

This example is a 7" long individual salad or fish fork. Commensurate with the line, it is very heavy at 1.7 oz.

It is in very good condition. Somewhat polished, there is some softening of detail on the design, but overall the detail remains distinct...

Measuring 7 5/8" long and weighing a substantial 2.2 T. oz., this preserve spoon is an early example of International's Art Nouveau "Frontenac." It is marked with the Simpson, Hall, Miller helmet-over-shield emblem of International Silver, along with "Sterling," and "Pat."

It is in exceptionally fine condition and without a monogram or removal. It has a slightly upturned end and retains all the fine detailing that characterizes original pieces of this pattern...

This sterling silver cold meat fork is about as large as such pieces get, measuring 8 5/8" long and weighing a very heavy 2.4 T. oz. The pattern is one of several kings and queens iterations that Gorham evolved over a span of about fifty years.

Each of these designs seemed to become more detailed, and that is the case with this late, 1899, expression...

Referred to both in the singular and plural, that is "Rose and Scroll" and "Roses and Scrolls," this Whiting pattern dates circa 1890.

This was a transition time between design modes and this shows both Aesthetic and Art Nouveau influences. The form is asymmetrical and rather exotic suggesting the former, while the expressive, unrestrained elements in the portraiture suggest the latter.

This piece is a large, 9" long, 2.3 T. oz., possibly salad or vegetable serving spoon...

Having a double Philadelphia provenance, this coin silver spoon is marked with James Watts' horse head emblem, and "George M. Bechtel" for the well-known retailer, 1850-60, and later in partnership with George Eno.

It is a substantially sized piece at 9" long and weighing just under 1.5 T. oz. Having a scalloped handle with an engraved surface, it reads as both characteristic for the period and for Philadelphia...

A novel design, this 6 3/16" long, heavy, 1.2 T. oz., youth spoon was made by Tiffany & Co. as identified on the reverse. Other marks include "Sterling" and "T," this letter dating it 1892-1902.

The elements of the piece, however, are older than this range. The handle form is essentially Tiffany's "Antique" with chamfered edges. Portions of this are acid etched in a manner that suggests "Vine," specifically squash or cucumber, two of which are incorporated in the etching...

A fully original item, not made up or adapted from another piece, this large, 8 1/4" long, heavy, approximately 2.0 T. oz., cheese scoop was made by Towle as identified on the reverse. Other marks include "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, "L.L. Mason."

Dating from 1884, Arlington is a dense, multi-motif, repousse style, floral design with a plain backside, which in this instance is free of a monogram or removal. It is highly detailed and intricately wrought. It shows particularly ...

Erroneously attributed by Tere Hagen in her reference work on flatware identification to Reed & Barton, this floral pattern is an early line pattern that was produced by William Durgin. Hagen calls it "Spray" but there is no documentation to that effect. The design features a charming bouquet of flowers, leaves, and grasses tied in a bow.

Examples of this show up in both coin and sterling silver, and only occasionally with the Durgin name or mark. This is stamped "Sterling" and "Pat. Apd...

Whiting's "Honeysuckle" pattern features a naturalistic representation of this popular garden flower set against a finely stippled ground. The lower portion of the handle is lined and separated from the pictorial portion by a crossed ribbon band. While this 7 7/8" long, approximately 1.7 T. oz. piece is sterling, and so marked, the pattern is more commonly found in silverplate.

The form is almost a hybrid between a ladle and a spoon. The curved handle is set close to the horizontal in rel...

Measuring 5 3/4" long, and weighing just over over .6 T. oz., this sterling silver ladle has a singular dimension and form 1 3/8" diameter by 3/8" deep, flat bottomed bowl with scalloped edges and a coffered wall.

The pattern is "Angelo" made by Wood & Hughes and stamped with that company's "WwH" plus the words "Sterling" and "Pat. 1878." It is a Renaissance Revival design that incorporates a number of detail elements and a combination of bright and matte finishes. The bowl has a gold fini...

Made by Krider & Biddle c. 1865, and marked with that company's emblem, this 8 3/8" long, 1.8 T. oz. berry spoon has a reverse tipt end handle with an engraved front. There is a reserve that has never been monogrammed. The engraving is finely rendered, as would be expected of this firm and as was generally so of mid 19th century Philadelphia silver. The bowl is an unusual shape, with notched edges and raised ribbing on the interior. It is finished in an original bright gold wash front and ba...

Measuring 6 3/4" long and weighing 1.3 T. oz., this coin silver gravy ladle was made in Cincinnati by the partnership of Edward and David Kinsey (1844-61). It has a twist stem and the broad, rounded ended shape that is characteristic of the region. The handle has bright cut and wriggle work engraving on both sides and engine turning on the front. It is engraved "Eva to Ella" in script. It is in excellent condition. The detail shows slight softening from polishing and the interior of the bow...

The smaller of two fish knives Durgin offered in its "Chrysanthemum" line, this piece measures 7 1/2" long and is very heavy, weighing just under 2.0 T. oz. It is flat handled and solid sterling silver. It is inscribed "Groff" in a feathered script on the blade, and "1896" on the handle. The blade is also stamped with the retailer's name, in this case Philadelphia's "Bailey, Banks & Biddle Co." This piece is in very good overall condition, in that it is free of bends, breaks, or other damag...

A premier name from the mid 19th century well into the 20th century, Boston's Bigelow, Kennard & Co. served a market that was increasingly eager and able to procure fine goods, of which this 9" long, weighty, 2.2 T. oz., serving spoon is an example. The design is characteristic of a Boston style especially popular in the 1860's leading into the 1870's. The handle is basically "Old English" with a tipt backside. The bowl is eggplant shaped and plain. The distinguishing feature on these pieces...

Measuring a generous 9 1/2" long, and weighing just over 2.3 T. oz., this serving spoon is marked "JS" which could be James Salter or John Smith, with the remaining hallmarks indicating Dublin, Ireland, and 1802. It has a down turned handle with a reverse tipt end, and an exposed drop on the bowl. The front is monogrammed "AMB" in a feathered script. The condition is very good. The handle is flawless, while the bowl has some pebbling in the base and the slightest bit of tip wear. The marks ...

Stamped with the date symbol for 1891, the Gorham lion, anchor, G, the word "Sterling," and the number "25," this large open salt stands 1 3/4" high, measures 2 5/8" across, and weighs a substantial 2.2 T. oz.

The design is Aesthetic in nature, with a repeating cascade of what appear to be breaking waves encircling the convex body. This theme may also relate to Gorham's "Narragansett" and related series of patterns of roughly the same period. The top has a pie crust edge, while the base is...
