Priced as a Pair.
Made of coin silver and dating from about 1860, they are marked on the blades with a "bust" and "JS & Co" for Joseph Seymour of Syracuse, New York.
These are a matched pair in all aspects, except for the inscriptions on them. One is engraved "Marion." in Old English lettering, while the other reads "Daniel" in script on one side, and "F.D.G." in a fancy ...
Other marks include the company name and "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," and the model number "60."
While fitting in the "mid century modern" period, and having the clean lines of that category, it is more truly Chippendale in style. It has a repeating rib design that appears beaded on the rim.
In excellent condition, i...
The design actually portrays a lily of the valley, with strong Greek Revival elements. The raised pattern is set on an anthemion-shaped, curved, leaf, and there are rosettes set either side of the flower cluster.
This example is simply marked with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," "Pat. 1870," and the name of the retailer, Cincinnat...
Such is represented in this 7" diameter, 1 1/8" high, very heavy at 11.4 T. oz., open bowl. It is stamped on the underside "Tilden-Thurber," "Sterling," and "943," and likely dates from early in the 20th century.
It has a flat bottom, with an eight lobed wall,...
That is the case with this 5 7/8" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., presumably wine taster, or possibly nut spoon, with a likely late 19th century date.
It has an oversized, seemingly carved, roughly rectangular, 3 1/2" by 2 1/4", handle.
The design is enigmatic, and could trace to multiple origins.
Overall the imagery suggests it found inspiration in Aztec themes....
It is an early example of Whiting's "Lily," marked with the company's lion logo, "Sterling," and "Pat. App. For."
It is in very fine condition and without a monogram or removal of same. Showing only light polishing wear on the high spots, the design remains ...
This mug is stamped with the "crossed K & B" symbol for the "Krider & Biddle" partnership, along with the model number "433."
There has been some difference of opinion about the exact dates of this pairing. The most recent, and likely most reliable, scholarship on Philadelphia silversmiths has been offered in a volume by Catherine Hol...
The pattern is "English King," which is typically heavy, as is the case with this item. It measures 7 1/4" long and weighs a massive 3.7 T. oz.
It is in immaculate estate condition and without a monogram or removal of same. Pattern detail remains well-defined. The finish is brilliant. The bowl is without dents, dings, or nicks.
This example, a 4 3/8" long, 1.1 T. oz., bon bon is unusual in two aspects.
One, it was produced by Cincinnati's "Duhme & Co." whose name is imprinted on the reverse. This is an unexpected source.
Two, rather than featuring a figure from Greek or Roman mythology as is typical of "Homeric," ...
Priced as a set of six.
An enduringly popular pattern introduced in 1907, older examples are bestowed with a crispness and clarity of detail that is lacking on later made items.
These pieces possess the qualities that go with their age. The high relief fruit and floral design remains sharply defined...
The pattern is "Louis XV," introduced in 1891 by William B. Durgin.
An extravagant Rococo design, it features high relief shell, acanthus leaf, scroll, floral and other elements set in a dense, asymmetrical, array.
Both sides of the handle have reserve areas, with the front one engraved with an elegant, period "CM" monogram. ...
Its features bespeak its origins, and quite impressively so. It has a twisted stem in the central portion of the handle, suggesting a date from the mid 1860s when this detail was popular.
The handle end is broad, with a slightly tipt backsid...
Retailed by one of New York City's premier 19th century outlets, "Black, Starr & Frost," this is early production of the pattern which was introduced in 1880. In addition to the retailer's stamp, it is marked with Whiting's "lion" logo, "Sterling," and "1."
The raised design on the handle, set against a checkerboard background, is blueberry, and remains precisely articul...
This lengthy (designed to reach the bottom of a chocolate pot), 9 1/4", and weighty, 1.5 T. oz., example is "Colonial A."
The engraving features a central, open wreath with a bow on the lower portion. The interior of this has a very fine, script "AJK" monogram.
The remainder of the surface has delicate, fleur-de-lis like detailing, with a diamond cut and w...
"Isis" was a major figure in the pantheon of ancient Egyptian deities. She is represented in this pattern by a pair of outstretched wings with a curled snake between them, which is a motif drawn from ancient sources.
This example is a 7 3/8" long, ...
Price for the set of six.
This matched set of six measure 5 5/16" and weigh 3.2 T. oz. the group.
They were made by Frank Smith in his early twentieth century "Newport Shell" pattern, and are marked with the company standing lion emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat-d."

It is a cream or sauce ladle in Whiting's "Heraldic," which appropriately enough is dominated by the image of a medieval helmet set at the top of the handle. The remainder of the design incorporates a dense array of high relief, scrolling acanthus leaves.
The bowl is the less common of two that Whiting used in this line. It has a scalloped rim and raised, leafy detail on the inte...
