Offered is a lovely and heavy early Victorian English sterling silver fish server by the well-known partnership of London silversmiths William Theobalds and Robert Metcalfe Atkinson, working together circa 1838-40. Though short-lived, this partnership produced a fair amount of high-quality flatware and servers.

This fish slice has a nicely executed pierced pattern, and extremely clear and well preserved hallmarks and maker's mark...

Offered is a lovely and unusual (perhaps modeled on ancient Roman examples, perhaps the product of Victorian imagination) English sterling silver serving piece or perhaps a dessert or ice cream fork, by John and Henry Lias and fully hallmarked for London, 1846. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs a heavy 38 grams. There is no crest, armorial or monogram and no erasure.

Offered is a very good and scarce 18th Century Scottish silver decanter label or bottle ticket, engraved for Madeira, by William and Patrick Cunningham of Edinburgh, circa 1790. As with some of these small pieces, this bottle ticket bears only the Cunningham's earlier maker's mark of WPC in a rectangular punch.

Offered is a good set of six Hanoverian pattern English Georgian sterling silver teaspoons, dating to about 1760-70 and bearing the maker's mark of "TD" or "ID" in script. This may be a Thomas Dealtry mark, or that of someone else. These spoons are each engraved to the reverse with owner's initials - three are engraved E*R and three are engraved A*R...

Offered is a nice Scottish provincial silver spoon by jeweler and silversmith John Pringle, working in Perth circa 1823-60. This piece probably dates to the earlier part of Pringle's career.

Please take a look at all the photos. This piece measures about 5 7/16 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams...

Offered is a very good early English sterling silver master salt spoon, circa 1770-80. This piece is nicely decorated with feather-edging and engraved with an armorial of a dragon's head. See my other listings for a contemporaneous master salt cellar with the same crest. This master salt spoon is very unusual in that it is not only a duty dodger, with nothing but maker's marks, but also has two different maker's marks. One is TE, perhaps for Thomas Evans of London, and the other is TE over G...

Offered is a lovely English Georgian sterling silver master salt cellar by the noted partnership of Robert Hennell I and David Hennell I, fully hallmarked for London, 1770.

Offered is a good heavy mid-Eighteenth Century English sterling silver Hanoverian Pattern tablespoon, engraved with a worn armorial of a hound of some sort, and bearing hallmarks indicating London manufacture. I didn't check the maker's mark, but it should be relatively easy to track down. This piece measures about 8 1/16 inches in length and weighs a good 68 grams or so. Condition is good overall, with some surface wear but good color and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine early...

Offered is a nice English Georgian sterling silver Hanoverian pattern tablespoon bearing a well-executed period armorial of a hawk or falcon. This piece measures about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. Condition is fair at best, as the bowl has been reshaped and the stem may have a well done repair, given that the maker's mark is missing. However, this would make a decent fill-in piece for a set or a server for casual use. The repairs have been done well, and this piece prese...

Offered is a lovely and well-preserved English sterling silver master butter knife or cheese knife, hallmarked for London, 1834-35 and with a maker's mark of JW in script, probably for John James Whiting. This piece measures about 7 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. It is expertly engraved with period script initials, probably "FHO". Condition is excellent with minimal surface wear, good color, and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a lovely piece and a great holiday item!

Offered is a nice early crested Georgian English sterling silver sauce or gravy ladle by noted London silversmith Richard Crossley, fully hallmarked for 1782. The armorial is of what appears to be a lion's paw emerging from a coronet and grasping an escallop (scallop shell); I've not researched the armorial to determine the family, but it is probably traceable. This piece measures about 6 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 52 grams. Condition is fair to good overall, with some surface wear...

Offered is a fine late 17th Century or very early 18th Century trefid table spoon bearing the maker's mark "IS" struck four times as the only mark.

This mark appears in Figure 8 of the article "In Search of John Smith" (a well-known Taunton and Barnstaple silversmith) by Tim Kent, F.S.A., which appeared in the January/February 2005 edition of The Finial (Volume 15/03). The spoon in that article was an acanthus-back trefid, also struck four times with this exact mark. The spoon was shown wi...
