Porter was a highly talented silversmith, but his work is inconsistent and sometimes sloppy. These items showcase his skills at their best. The solder joints are subtle and superbly executed, the hammering is uniform and attractive, the piercings are symmetrical.

You'll enjoy having these items on your bar, and ...

For our first listing of 2018, let's return to some good old fashioned pattern silver, a subject in which few folks seem to have any interest but we'll give it a shot because I'm a glutton for punishment and thrive on rejection.

Retailed by Boston's own late lamented and very elegant Bigelow Kennard, this implement is 8 5/8 inches long, weighs 2.76 Troy ounces, has no monogram and is in excellent condition. If memory serves me correctly, this is the first pea spoon we've ever offered in...

each square face 15 X 15 millimeters, or if you'd prefer 9/16 X 9/16 inches, weight .46 oz. Troy or 14.3 grams or if you're old school 9.2 dwt. Marked on reverse 18k and L in diamond as shown in second enlargement.

These are quite stylish and in wonderful condition. The posts are marked only 14k, which I suppose means they'd run out of 18k backs on the day that they were assembled, and made due with what was on hand.

For those of you who wonder what that unusual symbol between the Whiting trademark and "sterling" might mean, we suspect that is a letter h inside a circle, meaning 'heavy,' since these weigh a bit more than the average Lily butter spreader.

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.

in exemplary condition, no monogram, richly gilt tines, length 7 3/8 inches, weight 1.95 Troy ounces, retailed by A. Stowell of Boston.

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.
