3294f   $85.00


click for details
Slender and delicate, this piece measures 8 3/4" long and weighs just under 1.2 T. oz.

Marked only "Coin," without a maker's or retailer's identification, the rounded handle with notched tip essentially matches Gorham's early, 1865, "Italian" pattern, and the quality of manufacture suggests such a significant maker.

This is bordered by fine wriggle work engraving and has an elegant period "EC" feathered script monogram set in the center of the plain area of the surface.

Each one is stamped "John B. Scott" for the Pittsfield, Massachusetts jeweler born in New York in 1820.

The backside is a "Tuscan" pattern, which itself is yet... Click for details

This 7 7/8" long, not quite 1.1 T. oz., coin silver spoon has a double provenance.

It is stamped "E.S. & D.R. Burr" and "coin," for the jewelers located in the small, central Wisconsin town of Berlin. An entry in a 1919 "Jewelers' Circular," notes the death of Daniel Riley Burr at age 85, still resident in Berlin.

There is also a right-facing, bust that McGrew in his work on pseudo hallmarks identifies as an unknown Chicago maker. He cites only Chicago retailers associated with this, so... Click for details

or "kidney" shaped bowl, length 9 5/8 inches, weight 4.27 Troy ounces, gilt bowl, excellent condition.

Granted, this is not the rarest piece of Tiffany flatware you'll encounter while surfing the interwebz, but several features do make it stand out from the crowd: 1) the overall color, condition and lack of polishing wear 2) the exceptionally well executed and decorative Art Nouveau monogram (see third photo) which I can not decipher, and 3) the eminently reasonable price tag.

Our one complaint about this item, and it is a sin which time will cure, is that some over enthused polisher has dipped it in a liquid which shall not be named here, and removed the oxidation from the low points.

Georg Jensen "Acadia" aka "Blok" Sterling Silver Tea Caddy Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3250f   $80.00


click for details
The design on this piece is variously identified as "Acadia" or "Blok," or sometimes combined, with or without a hyphen.

The pattern was introduced in 1934 (one source offers 1931), although the mark on this 4 1/8" long, substantial weight, .8 T. oz. tea caddy spoon, "Georg Jensen in an oval of dots" over "Sterling" and "Denmark," was used from 1945 onward, so it dates between then and the 1970s when production was discontinued.

Deceptively simple in design, the pattern features a... Click for details
