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...

The genre is known as "souvenir spoons," but occasionally such commemorative items were produced in other forms. That is the case with this 6 3/8" long, probably youth, fork made by Watson. It is a heavy item, weighing 1.3 T. oz., and reflecting exceptional die work and finish. The word "Missouri" appears on a banner draped across the end of the handle. There are a remarkably high number of additional images portrayed on both sides of the remainder of the handle...

Dating from the late 19th century, Gorham's Luxembourg is a French rococo design, as might be surmised from the name. It is asymmetrical and employs scroll and paisley like design elements. This item is a 5 1/2" long, weighty, 1.2 T. oz., cream or sauce ladle. It has a gold washed bowl with a flange that goes along the entire perimeter. This has added embellishments around about half of it, as is only to be found on older pieces. The interior is finished in a bright gold wash...

Arcadian is a popular silverplate pattern produced under the International nameplate in the late 19th century. There was also a parallel line in sterling, pieces of which are much less common than the plate versions. This example is a 5 13/16" long spoon with a melon-shaped bowl. It has good heft, although the actual weight is less than .7 T. oz. It is probably for ice cream, but could be used for sugar as well...

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. The pattern is "Diana" by International, which is a turn of the 20th century design. The scroll motif is late Victorian in style, with a suggestion of Art Nouveau, both of which fit its date. The bowl is especially appealing with its scalloped and patterned edge that repeats the design of the handle. This ha...

The Simpson, Hall, Miller division of International silver was responsible for some of the most successful Art Nouveau patterns of the parent company. The most well known was "Frontenac." Others include "Cleone," which is the pattern on this master butter knife and sugar spoon.

It is a dramatic design, featuring a bearded male figure set amid an array of pond lilies and lily pads. Online references identify Cleone as the mythological daughter of a water god, so presumably the figure on th...

This sterling silver sugar sifter is imaginatively designed, and perhaps more so given its variance from traditional, i.e. constrained or formulaic, English style. The touch marks on the reverse date it to 1892, made by James Dixon & Sons of Sheffield, England. It is a 5 3/4" long, rather heavy, 1.5 T. oz., sugar sifter. The handle has an irregular margin and a short lower twisted section. The surface is finely engraved and diamond cut in a stylized floral motif. The 1 7/8" diameter, 5/8" d...
