Prominent and prosperous, William Adams was a 19th century New York City citizen, craftsman, and civic leader of note.

Born in Albany in 1802, references locate him working at several New York addresses beginning in 1829, where he served as that city's chairman of the Board of Aldermen 1842-43, with six years, 1844-50, spent in Troy, NY.

Recipient of "numerous awards and important commissions," (Waters, Elegant Plate), he is particularly remembered as the maker, 1841, of the... Click for details

diameter, 8.5"; height .75"; weight 14.0 oz. Troy; a few minor scratches and dents but excellent overall condition, no monogram, marked as shown in fifth enlargement.

Some similarities such as the ring-matte chasing (see second photo) exist between this and China Trade items which were imported to Boston during an albeit slightly later time frame, (see Forbes, figures 41 and 153), which along with the four toed feet and overall chunky-ness of this item leads me to wonder if Messr's Welles...

Edward Holland Hastings was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on February 1, 1857.   This dramatic christening cup from the gentleman whom we presume to be his uncle, Edward M. Holland, presaged a distinguished career as owner and impresario.

After spending a year at Cambridge High School, he prepared for four years at Philip Academy in Exeter, NH.   Immensely popular with his schoolmates, he was elected class president  and entered Harvard upon graduation.   Illness prevented him from... Click for details

One of Gorham's earliest coin silver master salts, this is also an exceptionally fine example of the form.

Model number "18," as identified on the underside, along with the rare "left lion" version of Gorham's hallmark, the word "Coin," and the name of the retailer, "W.H. Talbot & Co.," (more commonly spelled "Talbott") of Indianapolis.

This is large, measuring 3" by 2 1/4" by 1 5/8" high, and robust weight at just over 2.4 T. oz.

These dimensions are all consistent with those offered... Click for details

height 7 1/8 inches, weight 5.52 Troy ounces, fine condition, monogrammed as shown in third enlargement.

This mark is commonly given to Saunders Pitman, but we are not so certain that it is his. For example, though the Met attributes a cream jug in their collection (accession number 33.120.311) to Saunders, some might consider this attribution to be problematic, since he'd been dead for a good solid forty years when it was made.

Other reasonable possibilities would include John K.... Click for details

engine turned decoration and C scroll handle with integral cast floral support, height 4 3/4 to top and 5 3/4 inches across handle to spout, weight 6.92 Troy ounces, some minor dents and unhappy handle join (shown in fourth enlargement) but very good looking nonetheless. Engraved "Mary Mitlacker Brehme / From her Grandmother."

We have always been fond of Gorham's first high style designs, especially those in the manner of Mary Todd Lincoln's tea service.

Cornelia Anna Ritch (1847-1916) may well have been born with a silver spoon in her mouth. We know for sure that at the age of six, she had a fine looking coin silver cup in her hand.

Her great great great grandfather, Henry Ritch, was among the original settlers of Greenwich, CT, having received a grant of three acres there on May 19th, 1686. Her family has always been among the town’s leading citizens, comprising notable attorneys, quarry owners, and the first successful oyster... Click for details

One of Philadelphia's most prominent 19th century silversmiths, Peter L. Krider operated as sole manufacturer and in several partnerships over his career.

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... Click for details

Philadelphia circa 1795, with applied beaded border, square base, sunken center and handle offset to the corners, height 6 3/4 to top of spout; base 2 1/2 inches, weight 5.70 Troy ounces, monogrammed I * A on foot.

There is some rather sloppy soldering on the beaded border beneath the spout (I do not believe this to be a repair) which we show in agonizing detail, see image four, and the overall color indicates that there may have been either a removal or some machine polishing at one... Click for details
