Silver : Sterling : Hollowware

Old Friends  
4195f   $245.00


click for details
The quality of design and execution evident in this 7 1/2" tall, weighty at 6.8 T. oz., solid silver muffineer aka sugar shaker or castor bespeaks the reputation of its maker and the jeweler who retailed it.

Redlich & Co., whose "lion" emblem appears on the underside, traces to George Shiebler through one of its two cofounders, Adolph Ludwig, who was a designer with the latter firm.

Grogan & Co., also imprinted on the underside, was a carriage trade Pittsburgh jeweler, with it and Redlich... Click for details

height 2 1/4; diameter of base 2 3/16 inches, weight 3.05 Troy ounces, base shows some evidence of a candle having been pushed down too hard (see third enlargement) but we may say that it's in fine condition when viewed from above!

height 7 3/8 inches, 3 1/4 inches across base, weight 11.75 Troy ounces, no monogram. Please note that these are not weighted.

There are some condition issues. One (on left in photo) has some dents in the side panels; the bobeche on the other is a bit wavy. Also, though they bear the same model number, one is decorated with beading and the other with "rope."

Keep in mind that when your table is lit with candle light, the guests will simply say "what lovely pair of candlesticks!"

height 7 1/2 inches, width across handle 5 1/4 inches, weight 18 Troy ounces, capacity one quart, marked as shown in fourth enlargement. A classic, organic shape made famous by the Jensen Silversmithy (and featured on the dj of Janet Drucker's popular book), this design was conceived by Rohde in 1925, but did not enter production until 1930 because it was considered too radical.

This lovely example is entirely hand wrought, and dates from 1948. There have been a few dents removed from... Click for details

height 3; diameter 4 inches, weight 7.11 Troy ounces, excellent original condition, monogrammed as shown in second enlargement. A great design which makes use of both applied and repoussé'd decoration.

These come and go, but I don't think we've ever owned one where the chasing is so crisp and the original oxidation hasn't been at least partially removed by some overzealous owner.

George C. Shreve, San Francisco, Late 19th C. Sterling Silver Mug
Silver : Sterling : Hollowware

Old Friends  
3524f   $285.00


click for details
In her Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers, author Dorothy Rainwater notes of George C. Shreve & Company, the maker of this large, 3 3/16" high to the rim, 3 3/8" top diameter, 4.9 T. oz., mug, that "Until that 1880s the firm focused on retailing," but that "silversmithing began in 1883."

She also indicates that the "bee in a shield" emblem imprinted on the underside of this, along with the company name, "San Francisco," and "Sterling," was not used after 1894, all of which... Click for details

Franklin Porter hand wrought sterling shotglass

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver  
2322   Sold

height 2; top diameter 1 3/4 inches, weight 2.4 Troy ounces, no monogram, marked as shown in third enlargement, some very minor insults to foot but fine overall condition.

As mentioned elsewhere on these pages, Porter's work is of inconsistent quality. Here, the soldering is a bit sloppy and the hammering is rather random. So let's just consider that part of the charm, if we may.

Gorham No. 456 Sterling Silver Small Footed Dish
Silver : Sterling : Hollowware

Old Friends  
3451f   $75.00


click for details
This 4" round, 5/8" high, just under 2.0 T. oz. shallow dish resting on four ball feet presents as rather mysterious in purpose, save that it is identified in Gorham's 1890 catalogue (see image 2).

Stamped with the company "lion, anchor, G", emblem, "Sterling," and model number "456" on the underside, it is actually part of a desk ensemble, namely the underplate, or as labeled, a tray, for a multi-lobed ink bottle.

Original purpose aside, it is attractive in its own right,... Click for details

Gorham 1881 Two Handle Sterling Silver Open Bowl

Old Friends  
3444f   $110.00

This sterling silver bowl is model number "2385" made by Gorham in 1881, all documented in the marks on the underside of the flat bottom.

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.

Likely a sugar bowl, it stands on its own.

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

height 1 7/8 and 2 1/4 inches respectively; gross Troy weight 5.1 ounces, no monogram, excellent condition although the ebony (or teak?) handle is a bit wobbly in place.

Porter was a highly talented silversmith, but his work is inconsistent and sometimes sloppy. These items showcase his skills at their best. The solder joints are subtle and superbly executed, the hammering is uniform and attractive, the piercings are symmetrical.
