At 6 1/4" long, this piece is the next size up from a sugar spoon, with an large, 2 1/2" by 1 3/4" bowl, that suggests it is for jelly or preserves. It is moderately heavy at 1.2 T. oz.

These two, sterling silver chairs appear to be a matched arm and sides, or "his and hers" pair. They were made by "J.K. Martyn" of Hoxsie, RI, according to the marks on the underside. "Martyn" is identified as an "Artificer" as stamped on the underside (along with the word "Sterling"), which would suggest they produced novelty items like this. The date is unknown, although some inference may be drawn from the fact that Hoxsie is an older section of the City of Warwick, and the term artificer ...

According to biographical material, John Owen Bellis was born in England and emigrated to San Francisco about 1893 where he established himself as a prominent silversmith. He worked for that city's Shreve & Co. until 1906, then on his own after that.

Measuring 6 1/4" long and weighing .8 T. oz., this coin silver youth fork is marked "D. Valentine" for the Syracuse, NY, retailer.

Measuring 6 1/2" in diameter, standing 1/2" high, and weighing 4.9 T. oz., this plate is marked with the emblem of the William B. Kerr Company of Newark, New Jersey. Additional marks include "Sterling," model number "5174-2," and the letters "H.M.D."

Kerr produced a smaller, 5 3/4" diameter, and lighter, version of this marked "5174-1" and both items were probably children's plates, although this larger one could be a bread and butter plate.

The style is Arts & Crafts, and dates from ea...
