Offered is a fine German parcel-gilt beaker, probably circa 1825-75, bearing the silver standard mark of 13 loth, denoting 812/1000 fineness, and a maker's mark of a script-like "B." This piece bears finely executed grape-and-vine decoration, and and period script "H" owner's monogram in a shield. Condition overall is very good, with little or no dimpling and no splits; there appears to be a small repair to the body, but it is too well done to capture in a photograph...

Offered is a nice set of three English provincial sterling silver teaspoons assayed in Newcastle-on-Tyne, circa 1854. In addition to the hallmarks, each spoon bears the maker's mark of Thomas Sewell. These spoons measure about 5 1/2 inches in length on average, and weigh a total of 54 grams. Condition is fair, with some dings and dents, and a bit of over-polishing, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of Newcastle silver from the mid-19th Century!

Offered is an excellent Georgian sterling silver stuffing spoon by well-known London silversmith Robert Rutland, who was born 1785, entered his first mark around 1807 and a number of follow-on marks through 1826, and died 1828.

Offered is a good set of Georgian Irish sterling silver sugar tongs, fully hallmarked for Dublin, circa 1828-29, with a maker's mark of WC, most likely for Dublin silversmith William Cummins.

This set of sugar tongs measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs a solid 46 grams...

Offered is a lovely and extremely rare example of the Old English pattern in the first few years of its development. The first moves away from the Hanoverian pattern were with the larger serving pieces, such as this soup ladle, and with some forks. The primary reason for this shift was the discomfort of using pieces like soup ladles with the turned-up handles of the Hanoverian pattern; the turned-down end of the Old English pattern was simply more comfortable in the hand...

Offered is a lovely and very early example of a quite scarce form in Georgian English sterling silver - an ice space or spoon, used for various dessert ices, sorbets and ice creams. Ian Pickford shows examples of this form and discusses it on pages 184-85 of his book "Silver Flatware - English, Scottish and Irish, 1660-1980". As he notes, examples can be as large as a gravy (stuffing) spoon, and most are heavy and well made in order to perform their function well...

Offered is a rare, early and splendid George III English sterling silver toy spoon or miniature spoon (or possibly a snuff spoon), hallmarked for London, 1791 but without a maker's mark that I can discern. Often such miniature spoons were not fully marked, and were entirely unmarked in some cases. These piece is delightfully decorated with a swaged rococo scroll to the back of the bowl, and is fully engraved in the latest style to the front...

Offered is a very well-executed Georgian English sterling silver gravy or sauce ladle by London silversmith William Traies, who seems to have had a short but productive career in the 1820s. This piece is hallmarked for London circa 1826 and bears a clear maker's mark for Traies. His work is usually of a very good quality and this piece is no exception, with good weight and proportions, and an expertly engraved monogram of "ASM".

Offered is a very good Irish Georgian sterling silver table fork by Irish provincial silversmiths Carden Terry and Jane Williams, working in Cork circa 1807-21. This piece is hallmarked for Dublin, 1820, but was made in Cork by Terry & Williams. This piece is engraved with a period armorial of a bull issuing forth from a stone turret of some sort; I haven't researched the armorial to determine the family as yet. This fork measures just under 8 inches in length and weighs a full 60 grams or so...
