An early 20th century piece, the unnamed pattern on this 5 5/8" long, just over .8 T. oz., Rogers, Lunt & Bowlen, later Lunt, teaspoon very much resembles a number of highly popular contemporaneous designs produced by Unger Brothers.

Strongly Art Nouveau in manner and set in high relief, it combines a floral motif with the face of a young woman.

Again in the fashion of Unger Brothers, her flowing hair entwines itself around a single blossom, eventually trailing off into the leafy detail of... Click for details

Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4824f   $58.00


click for details
Trianon originated with Dominick & Haff and was offered in both a solid and a pierced handle version. This 4 3/4" long, .7 T. oz. bon bon or nut spoon is an example of the latter version.

Reed & Barton continued production of the (pierced) pattern after it acquired Dominick & Haff, renaming it Florentine Lace.

It is a delicate, filigree like, design that incorporates small florettes, perhaps forget-me-nots, and scrolling acanthus leaves.

Elkington, Birmingham, 1886 Figural Sterling Silver Serving Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4823f   $175.00


click for details
One of the grand names in English silver work, Elkington & Co. is described in the definitive guide Jackson's Hallmarks as an "Important 19th C firm with very wide range," whose "Quality is always superb."

Renowned for their elegance of design and execution, much of their production was in silverplate, but the firm worked equally well in sterling as this fully hallmarked (bust, lion, anchor, m, and FE), 1886-87, high Victorian piece indicates.

Starr," New York City, first quarter of the 20th century, along with Durgin's "D" emblem, "Sterling," "925/1000," and "Patent."

A dense, high relief, design, the handle features a close array of chrysanthemum blossoms and leaves surrounding a central reserve on the front,... Click for details

This is a lovely, old (Patent applied for mark) piece with gilt tines, in immaculate condition save for some slight evidence of an erasure (reverse, see third enlargement). In spite of that, it puts the tinselly overpriced examples you'll find currently listed on that auction site to shame.

Tiffany "Faneuil" Sterling Silver Lemon Fork with Spur
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4820f   $65.00


click for details
William Hood in his work Tiffany Silver Flatware describes this 4 3/4" long, approximately .5 T. oz., lemon fork variant as "a novel . . . two tined form with a 'rooster spur' projecting out from the front of the bowl.

He further notes, "Presumably the spur is to limit the depth of penetration of the tines into the lemon slice."

Lastly he observes, "We have seen this unusual form in only a few patterns," of which Faneuil, was evidently one as that is the pattern on this fully... Click for details

Bailey & Company "French Thread" Sterling Silver Serving Shovel
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
4819f   On Hold


click for details
This 8 3/4" long, nearly 2.9 T. oz., serving shovel is an unusual piece.

While the scoop form was commonly employed in its mid 19th century period as an implement for berries, flat bottomed piece with low side walls, and a straight front edge is most likely an early form of an ice cream spade.

A French Thread pattern, it is doubly unusual in that the generally plain surface inside the lined margins, and the margins themselves, are finely engraved with wriggle work and stitchery.... Click for details

Those folks who Replace your stuff have given this pattern the prosaic name of "WHS9", but we don't believe them for a minute. Engraved patterns such as this, if they had a name, were often known by number, for example "Antique Engraved number 7." They involved hours of skilled, exacting work by craftsmen who were paid more than most of their peers. ... Click for details

Marked with a first standard "minerva head" emblem on the handle and secondly on the interior of the bowl, this is 950 silver, slightly higher than sterling at 925.
