HEAVY GERMAN LADLE
Silver

Bargentum  
DP020   Sold


click for details
This ladle is marked for Koberlin Brothers, an old silverware firm in Saxony founded in 1828, although the ladle probably dates from the first quarter of the 20th century. It is decorated simply with a single thread outlining the curving form, and with the only relief being the monogram AP. The bowl is oval, and gold-washed. It is marked with the Koberlin mark, the German Imperial marks of crescent moon and crown, and 800 fine (in contrast with 925 for sterling) for the silver content. Length... Click for details

LONGER-HANDLED COIN MUSTARD LADLE, S.D. BROWER
Silver

Bargentum  
X2526   $55.00


click for details
One outgrowth of the “Josephine” pattern is the S.D. Brower variant of this design, and it probably emerged soon after 1855. A full acanthus leaf hangs from the top of the threaded handle, and smaller leaf portions emerge to form a center medallion space, inside which is engraved the name Ball in period script. The motif is repeated on the underside, terminating in an acanthus on the bowl. Condition of form, bowl and design is very good, with no spots, dents, bends or burrs. The length is...

6 NORDIC SPOONS, Ca. 1790
Silver

Bargentum  
1080426   $375.00


click for details
“Nordic” in this case could be Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Lapland and Norway) or northern Germany (which belonged to Denmark at times) or even the Baltic region – the marks are not consistent with official markings of the time and would point to a region more isolated from a guardein, or silver warden. Stylistic identification is the most reliable source, speaking to the straight form of the handle and its down-turned tip, and with its suggestion of a rib carried from the... Click for details

PLATED BOXED SET -12- 'BEAD' BREAKFAST/TEA KNIVES
Silver

Bargentum  
1080425   $70.00


click for details
“Bead” was perhaps introduced by John Polhemus, but it certainly was made by several others and became a 'standard pattern' in the coin period – a Pointed Antique handle outlined with beads and topped by foliage. Like many of those patterns, it crossed over into plate and was made by many manufacturers. These knives are 7.5 in. long and are are marked for JF Curran & Co. (NY) which survived for only about 10 years, about 1865-1875. They are marked A1 – the superior quality for... Click for details

GOOD D&H LOUIS XIV (OLD) DESSERT SPOON
Silver

Bargentum  
1080422   $50.00


click for details
Introduced in 1888, the D&H Louis XIV pattern incorporates rococo elements found in patterns of the same period by other major makers in the US and Europe, though more restrained in its display of gently curving tendrils and suggestions of shells. The pattern is double-struck. This dessert spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, nicks, or bends. The finish is excellent. A script monogram of EJM is lightly inscribed on the front of the spoon. The back of the handle is marked with... Click for details

ENGRAVED NORWEGIAN SPOON
Silver

Bargentum  
1080181   $65.00


click for details
At a hair under 8.5 in., this spoon was probably a place spoon. The handle is delicately engraved to create a field containing bright-cut foliage. The maker was the Norsk Filigransfabrikk (1889-1910) whose mark is on the back, together with 13-1/2 indicating the Loth content, equivalent to 826 fine silver, or 82.6%, as a guarantee. Since the Norwegian marking system was changed in 1891 to eliminate the Loth, this spoon was made between 1889 and 1891. There is no damage to the spoon. It has... Click for details

STERL. GORHAM 'LILY' ('88') YOUTH KNIFE AND SPOON
Silver

Bargentum  
1080176   $110.00


click for details
Improvements in the silver manufacturing process by 1870 made possible new design implementations, and Gorham probably led the field with a spate of innovative patterns, among them “Lily” (1870). It is also known as “No. 88.” The delicacy of the single die is representative of what was now possible. The youth knife and spoon were well cared for. The knife is 6.75 in., marked with the Gorham logo, the words “sterling,” “Patent 1870,” and “88.” The spoon is 5 in., marked... Click for details

COIN ALBERT COLES 'JENNY LIND' YOUTH KNIFE, FORK
Silver

Bargentum  
1080175   $58.00


click for details
Albert Coles (1815-1885) must have attended one of the early concerts given by Jenny Lind upon her arrival in New York, where Coles worked, in 1850; his pattern is generally placed in that year. Known as the “Swedish Nightingale,” Jenny Lind won an immediate place in the hearts of Americans, not only for her voice but also for her philanthropy for which was deemed virtuous. Many places and objects were named after her. Coles' tribute in creating the double-struck Jenny Lind pattern took... Click for details

VERY GOOD GORHAM 'LOUIS XIV' STERLING SPOON
Silver

Bargentum  
1579   $72.00


click for details
'Louis XIV' (patented in 1870) was one of the many innovative patterns introduced by Gorham following the coin period, this one using suggestions of classical elements – column, arches, volutes, dart-and-egg in a new way, with a very pleasing result. The spoon is in excellent condition – no bends, dents, pits or burrs – only superficial scratches expected with age. It is 8.75 in., 54 g., and has a lovely script monogram CEL on the reverse.

6 WOOD & HUGHES STERLING ICE CREAM SPOONS
Silver

Bargentum  
2364a   $150.00


click for details
These are very attractive spoons, 5.25 long, with a twisted shank terminating in a rounded flat end with a Japanesque bright-cut décor that is in keeping with other patterns ca. 1880. The bowls have raised ridges (to keep the ice cream from sticking?) and have very pale suggestions of original gold treatment. (I am reluctant to clean them more than superficially because of this.) Wood & Hughes was known for many specialty items, but this is not a pattern I have encountered – it is similar... Click for details

Whiting's “Alhambra,” which was introduced in 1880 during a decade full of patterns with exotic references to places and cultures that defined the Romantic period. The handle is a fluted column topped by a geometric form filled with threaded tendrils on a textured background and a central cartouche which contains a script monogram H. The bowl is an elongated shell form with alternating rounded and pointed edges. The underside has the Whiting logo on the bowl, the word “sterling” and... Click for details

RICCI ARGENTIERI / SILVER PLATE 'BERNINI' DESSERT SER
Silver

Bargentum  
1068825   $42.00


click for details
Ricco / Ricci Argentieri is a very old Italian silver manufacturer that claims to use 10 times the normal amount of silver in the plating process. The “Bernini” pattern displays light classic elements – volute, acanthus, thread, shell – on the handle, and the serving blade echoes the shape of the handle. This handsome, solid piece is well-finished and has not been used, showing only the scratches that came from storage drawer in the store. It is 10.5 in. long. Please note: This... Click for details

GORHAM 'CLEMATIS' STERLING SERVING SPOON
Silver

Bargentum  
1068821   $95.00


click for details
The pleasing use of acid etching to define the floral surface of 'Clematis' (introduced in 1885) combines with delicate engraving of leaves and vine to give new life to a standard Old English pattern. The bowl is elongated with a suggestion of honeysuckle in the repousse treatment, and terminates in a soft point. It might have been used for pudding, but certainly shouldn't be limited to that! There are remains of gold wash in the bowl. Length is 9.25 in., the weight is 57 g., and there is a... Click for details

GORHAM 'OLD BARONIAL' TABLE SPOON
Silver

Bargentum  
1068817   $95.00


click for details
Gorham introduced 'Old Baronial' in 1998, during the tenure of William Codman as chief of design at Gorham. Codman's background in restoration of medieval objects is evident in this pattern which invokes the revival of the Gothic period in Baronial Europe – in this case, the blending of a lion's head with foliate, scroll and floral motifs. The spoon is in very fine condition with no problems whatever, a touch over 8.5 in. long and it weighs 80 grams. The handle has a monogram of LR on the... Click for details
