"Windsor Castle" is one of Tuttle's (Boston, Massachusetts) first patterns, introduced in 1929.

This example, a 5 3/4" long, weighty 1.9 T. oz., gravy ladle is coded "HH III" in a crescent, indicating it dates from the third year of Herbert Hoover's presidency, 1931-32, early in the history of the line...

Made by the same company that produced such premier patterns as "Love Disarmed" and "Les Six Fleurs," "Intaglio" stands with those designs as an outstanding Art Nouveau example from the early 19th century period. As the name implies, the imagery is carved into the silver, as well as raised up.

It is a floral, multi-motif line, with the name of the particular flower identified on the backside of each piece.

In the instance of this 7 1/4" long, heavy, 1.7 T...

As with so much of the design product of George Shiebler, "Victoria" falls into a style of its own.

It has a border of what appears to be a repeating buds with tendril-like elements. This extends onto the shoulders of the bowl of this large, 8" long, heavy, 2.3 T. oz., gravy ladle. The motif bears a similarity to Georg Jensen's "Blossom," although "Victoria" predates that pattern by about twenty years.

There is a script "JEH" monogram on the handle...

This 6" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz., three tine pickle fork is a place piece and not a serving item. It is an early, and apparently not readily found, form in Towle's "Old Colonial" line.

This example is in immaculate condition and is without a monogram or removal. It retains an original gold wash, which apart from some rubbing wear on the backside where the heel rests, is fully intact.

Marks are the Towle emblem, "Sterling," "925/1000," and an imprinted "Pat. 1895."

An unusual form, this cake fork measures 6 7/8" long and weighs 1.2 T. oz. The defining feature of the piece is the elongated, 3 1/2" overall, serving end which is comprised of three yoked tines with three dimensional scalloped shoulders. The entire surface front and back is finished in a satin matte gold wash.

Dating from 1889, the pattern is a high relief, repousse-like, floral design featuring a variety of roses...

This spoon measures an unusual 7 7/8" long and weighs a substantial 2.1 T. oz.

A "Chinese Export" piece, it is stamped with four pseudo hallmarks used by "Wongshing," aka "Wong Shing," located in Canton c. 1810-35 according to one source, and 1820-60 by another source. Silver standards vary for Export silver, but it broadly conforms to sterling...

These two, matching, butter pats are 3" square and weigh a substantial 2.5 T. oz. the pair. Made by Gorham, they are stamped with the company name and "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," the model number "58," and date from about 1935.

They have 1/4" high, gadroon edges with a slight lip. The interiors are engraved "E.I.T" in block lettering.

A large example, this master butter knife measures 8" long and weighs approximately 1.6 T. oz. The pattern is "Florentine," introduced in 1870 by John Wendt. A Renaissance Revival design, Florentine consists of a dense mosaic of leaves and scrolls with a shield reserve, which in this case is absent a monogram or removal. The blade is set on the vertical to the handle, meaning the handle would lie flat on a surface, with the blade fully upright.

It is in very fine condition...

Something of a uncommon pattern, and a more intricate design than the name would imply, Durgin's 1886 "Scroll" has a repousse surface that features leaves, florals, and the namesake scrolls.

This example is a generously sized, 5" long, .9 T. oz. pair of sugar tongs. There is a fancy script "MAT" monogram on the arch. The gold washed talon grips are very finely rendered with detailed articulation on the inside as well as the outside surfaces.

The condition is excellent. Polishing wear ...

Marked "J. Wallace" and with a symbol that John McGrew in his work on pseudo hallmarks identifies as the "Western eagle head" "from the frontier regions," this table or serving spoon measure 8 15/16" long and weighs just under 2.0 T. oz.

Dating from the first quarter of the 19th century, it has a plain, down turned end with a slightly tipt backside, high, sharply beveled wings off the bowl, and a pronounced drop on the bowl.

Long and slender at 9", and weighing nearly 1.2 T. oz., this cake fork dates from the late 19th century.

The pattern is "Waverly" by Wallace. The scroll design derives from the same style impulses that Whiting embraced for its "Louis XV" and Gorham for its "Strasbourg" patterns.

The serving end has five delicate tines joined to a scalloped heel area that is pierced in a fleur-de-lis motif.

There is an embellished, Art Nouveau style "S" monogram.

Perhaps the least common of condiment servers (a category which includes mustard ladles and horseradish spoons), chow chow aka picalilli spoons characteristically have narrow, deep bowls, and often relatively long handles.

This example is in Gorham's "Versailles." It measures 5 3/4" long and is heavy at nearly 1.0 T. oz. The bowl is 2" long by 1" at the widest and 1/2" at the deepest. It has a satin matte finish on the interior and retains a portion of an original gold wash.

Although Fessenden produced several Art Nouveau style floral designs early in the 20th century and named them after the respective flower portrayed, this perhaps chrysanthemum pattern in that series was an exception to that practice and was named "McKinley."

Measuring 7" long and weighing 1.1 T. oz., this example is a preserve or jelly spoon. The pattern is double die struck, meaning it appears on the front and back sides of the handle. It is high relief and highly detailed. The bowl is u...

Stamped on both the filled handle and solid silver blade "LAC" for Lionel Alfred Crichton, and with a leopard head for London, a lion for sterling, and an "r" for 1912, this knife measures 7 7/8" long. It weighs 1.6 T. oz., which total includes the fill that is in the handle.

The handle is a pistol grip style with a band that wraps around the upper edge, terminating in a double leaf design. The blade has a blunt end and broadens toward the tip.

It is in choice condition. The handle is...

An early Wood & Hughes piece, dating circa 1855, this coin silver master butter knife is substantially sized at 7 3/4" long and weighing 1.1 T. oz. It is a singular design, having a twisted stem and a notched, shield shaped handle. It is similar in overall form to Gorham's little known "Imperial" pattern of the same period, and of which Wood & Hughes had an almost identical match. The upper edge of the blade has two notches that repeat the design of the handle. Otherwise having a plain surfa...

Fully marked for London, 1844, and sterling, this large, 9", heavy 2.6 T. oz., table serving spoon is stamped "SH" over "DC" for the partnership of Samuel Hayne and Dudley Cater.

It is a handsome and refined item, artfully formed and finished. It has a reverse tipt handle with an exposed drop on the backside of the bowl. The plain front has cleanly beveled edges and high, sharply defined shoulders off the generously proportioned, 3 1/4" by 1 3/4", bowl.

Model number "435" made by Gorham, a similar companion piece numbered "437" appears in the company catalog of 1892 (see image 2). Measuring 4 3/8" long and weighing just under 1.0 T. oz., this form is sometimes identified as a tea caddy spoon, but the catalog illustration establishes it as a bon bon spoon. Such pieces were higher order in the Gorham stable and extra effort was invested in their design and production. They are also generally heavier than comparable pieces in full line patterns...

Measuring 6 7/8" long and heavy at nearly 1.7 T. oz., this fork may have been a youth piece as it is engraved "Margaret Hobbs" in script on the reverse.

The pattern is Wallace's early 20th century "Irian." It is through and through an Art Nouveau design that features a full sized, high relief, nude woman with two winged cherubs hoovering about her. The lower portion of the handle portrays a number of florals including an iris and poppy, both popular themes within the Nouveau design mode. ...
