Working in the early decades of the 20th century (and later absorbed into Currier & Roby), Henckel produced quality work, often in an Arts and Crafts style, as evidenced by this 7 1/8" long, weighty at 3.1 T. oz., pai...
Staunch and clean, these were made to a standard and no doubt intended to serve dutifully while presenting with a quiet nobility.
The elongated cup grips have high shoulders that, which, along with the length of the arms, have beveled edges. The arch i...
This example is a 6 1/2" long, 1.2 T. oz. sauce ladle.
The handle is slender and elongated, and is joined to a 2" diameter, round shell bowl with a scalloped rim and a flat bottom. This is finished on both sides with a bright gold wash that extends to the lower of two...
It is a very fine period example of this particularly English form, produced by a well-recognized maker.
The larger of the two elongated ends shows a thumb drop on the back and is inscribed with a crest of a long-necked bird with a snake in its beak.
It is in outstanding condition. It is f...
Appropriate to the period, it is "Old English," style, with a downturned, reverse tipt, handle and a thumb drop on the bowl. The front has a feathered script "R" monogram.
The bowl is unusual in that it is a perfectly shaped hemisphere, 2 1/16" in diameter and 3/4" deep.
It is in very good condition, absent any bends, breaks, or cracks, ...
The pattern is number "21" introduced by Georg Jensen about 1920. This example carries that number, the words "Sterling" and "Denmark" and a Jensen mark consonant with the design date.
Also known as "Pea in the Pod," the curved end handle features ball and leaf elements that, in the manner of Danish Modern stylization similar to that of Jense...
The pattern was introduced in 1934 (one source offers 1931), although the mark on this 4 1/8" long, substantial weight, .8 T. oz. tea caddy spoon, "Georg Jensen in an oval of dots" over "Sterling" and "Denmark," was used from 1945 onward, so it dates between then and the 1970s when production was discontinued.
Deceptively simple in design, the pattern features a slight...

Each one has three legs and stands 1 1/4" high to the top of base and 1 5/8" tall with the liner in place, and is 1 3/4" wide at the maximum. The combined weight of the metal is .7 T. oz.
German in origin, they are stamped "800" for the grade of the silver. These marks are on the rims, and are flanked by two other imprints. These are so small they are indecipherab...
The lower portions of the handle where it joins the bowl suggest an Egyptian Revival influence, while other areas point toward Renaissance Revival inspiration. In addition, the dense floral clusters employ imagery similar to Gorham's "Cluny" pattern that was designed by Antoine Heller, who was highly regarded for his Classical motifs.
It measures 2" tall to the rim, 2 3/4" at the highest point of the arms, has a body that is 3 1/2" wide, 5 1/4" handle tip to handle tip, 2 3/8" across on the bottom, a top opening of 2 3/4", and weighs 4.6 T. oz.

Elegantly understated in design, the body is cauldron shaped with a sawtooth edge rim, and has...

It appears to be a pen tray, and is indeed very similar to the item alongside it identified as that, but late Victorian sensibilities provided for separate items for each functional need of the time.
It is particularly handsome and intricately detailed. The motif appears to be taken from English court style, ...

It is engraved "Betty" flanked by "four years old . . . April 3 1904.," which date is consistent with the low tone Art Nouveau style of the piece.

The form was popular in the late 19th century, and no company was more successful in producing impressive examples than Gorham. This example is model number "588" offered by that firm.
It is medium-sized, measuring 6 1/8" long, has a bowl that is roughly 2 3/4" in diameter, and weighs just under 2.0 T. oz.
It is cast rather than die struck, as these forms generally were. Casting allows for the introduction of more intricate detail and great...
