Each of these twelve spoons measures 5 5/8" long and has a script "E.F." monogram on the back of the handle, set in the European manner with the monogram facing the diner. The group weigh 7.2 T. oz.

Presumably they are teaspoons, although with their sharply defined tips, they could be used for fruit.

The pattern is appropriately a "French Thread," given that these are French in origin and fully marked so.

They are stamped with a first standard (950 parts silver vs...

Not formally named, the pattern on these three pieces is an "Oak and Acorn" motif that was produced by Boston's Farrington & Hunnewell. It dates c. 1865.

It is an engaging, double die struck (meaning it appears on both sides of the handle) design, singular for its time, and considerably more detailed than the common patterns of the period, such as "Olive" and its variants...

These spoons trace to the highly regarded Blanchard family of Arts & Craft silversmiths. They are marked "B09" in an oval, demarcating the year (1909) that George Blanchard left the employ of Arthur Stone and established his own shop in Gardner, Massachusetts. This symbol is associated as well with George's son, Porter Blanchard, who eventually migrated to California and essentially became legendary in his field. They are also stamped "Sterling."

The spoons all match, measure 4 1/8" long,...

A pattern deeply rooted in the academic tradition, "Paris" incorporates an abundance of figural and representational beaux arts imagery. Made by Gorham just after the turn of the 20th century, the dominant elements are flanking cherubs supporting a torch. A cat sitting amid bowls and what appears to be a coffee pot sits mid handle. This assembly is repeated on the backside, minus the cat. The margins of the handle are festooned with floral and scroll elements, along with cornucopia.

These six coin silver teaspoons are exceptionally fine examples of mid 19th century coin silver.

The first design produced in-house and Tiffany's namesake pattern, "Tiffany" was patented in 1869. It proved popular, remaining in active production until at least 1917 according to William Hood in "Tiffany Silver Flatware." He also notes that it was reintroduced in 1956 with a slight design change under the name "Beekman." Hood additionally references there was a modification dating no later than 1880, wherein the pointed antefix (tip end) of the handle was made more rounded and the design m...

Each of these six, matched, coin silver teaspoons measures exactly 6" long and has the same fancy, feathered script "PAC" monogram. The group together weigh 3.9 T. oz.

They are stamped "Wm. W. White," who is listed as a silversmith and jeweler in New York City, with a short early period in Philadelphia.

The leafy pattern has been attributed to A. and W. Wood also of New York, and if there is this connection, these would have to date c. 1850 as there was scant time overlap between the tw...

Marked "S.T. Crosby" for the Boston retailer, 1854-61, each of these six forks measures 7 7/16" long. They likely were originally 7 1/2", dinner size, but show some tip wear on the tines (and light knife cuts on the backsides). Quite heavy, the group weighs 9.6 T oz.

The pattern is "Olive," with the actual maker probably Farrington & Hunnewell, also a Boston firm. In addition to the retailer's mark, they are stamped "Pure-Coin," a designation primarily used in New England.

Probably a standard indicator for silverplate, and probably European in origin, this piece is marked "80T."

It is a charming combination baby's rattle with a whistle end. The actual rattle is three conjoined bells that jingle like sleigh bells. These have a wire frame that leads to a twist stem which is attached to the whistle which also functions as the actual handle.

It is an estate item always resident within one family, and has likely late Victorian or early 20th century date.
