Newburyport, MA circa 1800, length 5 5/8 inches, weight 1.97 Troy ounces, unusual "sickle and sheaf" drops, fine condition, marked and monogrammed as shown in enlargements.

It is free, but if you're suspecting that there's a catch, you are correct. To get these servers, simply make a twenty-five dollar donation to the non-political charity of your choice, screen shot the receipt (if you were to include "thanks to Bruce Cherner Antique Silver in the memo portion, I would not object) and email it to me along with your shipp...

maker "AM", height 5 1/4 inches, weight 16.95 Troy ounces, one bobeche is slightly out of round (see fifth enlargement) but excellent overall condition, engraved "A. Arnaud."

French Sculptor Auguste Arnaud was noted for his work "The Skirmisher," now housed at the Redoute de Gravelle in Paris. He sought but failed to win a commission for the official state sculpture of Don Pedro II, King of Portugal. Most probably these were his personal candlesticks, purchased during his time in Portuga...

Collecting early American silver does not have to be an overly expensive proposition, although you could also find similar spoons on ebay (item 274673082801) @195.00 each!

NY circa 1790, bright cut borders with oval cartouche, elongated bowls with raised oval drops, length 8 3/4 inches, weight 3.13 Troy ounces the pair, marked and monogrammed as shown in enlargements. There is some softening to the decoration, but the bowls are largely free of tip wear and both spoons are in very good overall condition.

Gilbert's work is well collected, with a salver at the Museum of the City of New York, and a marrow spoon at the Henry Luce III Center for the Study of Ame...

fork and spoon each approximately 6; knife 7 inches long, total weight 4.24 Troy ounces, monogrammed as shown. I suspect that this item has had a light buffing at some point during its long life, and there is some wear commensurate with age (that 1904 engraving is most probably very close to the date of manufacture), but very good overall condition

Those who have had the good fortune to make the pilgrimage to Gorham's archives at Brown University will know that the company sent representatives to collect fabric samples from around the globe. These influences are used to great effect in this tour de force of chasing and piercing skills.

One caveat about condition: somebody appears to have begun removing the gold wash from the re...

London, 1893, maker William Richard Corke; retailed by A. Barrett & Sons, height 4 3/8 inches, weight 21.3 grams or if you'd prefer .68 oz Troy, excellent condition, no monogram.

For Victorian era bookmark collectors, I daresay that this is the sine qua non.

length 10 1/8 inches, weight 5.9 Troy ounces, gilt tines, excellent condition, marked and monogrammed as shown in fourth and fifth enlargements.

Though the gilding was probably a bit brighter in 1902, this is still an especially impressive example. For those of you who are not familiar with weights, 5.9 Troy ounces will feel wonderfully heavy in the hand!

Certainly a candidate for "best in its class," a gentleman of the Raj would have been proud to place his napkin within, and now with the simple click of a mouse, so can you!

My apologies, dear reader, for placing this in the "China Trade" category, but alas we don't have ...

length 7 1/8 inches, weight 7.63 Troy ounces the lot, monogrammed as shown in second enlargement, marked "H & S STERLING" and "Watts."

When it comes to condition, what separates the men from the boys, or the women from the girls (Don Soeffing describes the figure as "somewhat androgynous," so let's honor that!) is the clarity of the ivy garland. Have a look at our third photo and we think you'll agree that these comport themselves rather well.

May I also add that though teaspoons and ...

Of all the nineteenth century American flatware manufacturers, we have a particular fondness for Durgin. Their sensitivity to the natural world and ability to evoke it "in the metal" was uncanny. Have a look at the delicate oyster shell detail in this pattern, complete with pearl (see fourth enlargement), and remember that the die which created this detail was hand c...

Bruce Cherner Antique Silver
SOLD
length 8 inches (!!), weight 10.22 Troy ounces, a few extremely minor scratches in bowls (see first enlargement, 3rd spoon from top) but excellent overall condition, marked "Tiffany & Co STERLING PAT 1884. M", monogrammed as shown.

We suspect that not many of these spoons were produced, and many of those that survive are looking tired and worn. These will do your collection proud, and also enable you to take a very generous mouthful of soup!

This large (2 1/2 inch diameter; weight 31.7grams), early brooch is not pictured in Drucker, nor is it listed anywhere else which we can find on this World Wide Web. The reverse is marked and engraved as shown in our third enlargement. There are some minor scratches on the reverse, but the part that meets your eye is in excellent condition. As to whether the recipient was the Nina Hellman who was born in Milan, MI, lived from 1903-90, and was married to the Pacific Coast banterweight boxing...

Before you get all steamed up about what an incredible bargain these are (those folks who Replace your stuff want 199.95 each, on ebay), dear reader, allow me to draw your attention to the blades, which are steel and have some pitting (we've shown this in unflinching detail; see second enlargement). They are also "pinned" in place which would make replacing them complicated. They're emine...
