Albany circa 1820, length 6 7/8 inches, total Troy weight 14.03 ounces, monogrammed "MM" in period script with flourishes, looking pretty much the same way they did upon leaving Messrs Shepherd & Boyd's establishment just over two hundred years ago.

Finding a set of twelve coin silver dessert spoons in any pattern is rare, but I'm hard pressed to think of the last time we had the privilege to offer a group of this quality (note the "flat" at the tip of each spoon) and decorative appeal. ...

length 8 5/8 inches, total Troy weight 5.14 ounces, monogrammed as shown in bowl of spoon. The palm leaf gilding on reverse of fork is not quite so bold as on the spoon, and there is a slight blemish on the fork (see third enlargement) but the overall condition is fine.

Glendenning was by his own telling a street kid from Gardner who discovered Stone's workshop, became enthralled with the goings on there, and was taken in by the great master of American Arts & Crafts silver as an apprentice. The youngest of the original members, he is said to have claimed that "Stone made me a silversmith and made me a gentleman."

In 1936, he left to form a partnership with George Erickson, which lasted until 1971. Subsequently he worked on his own, making a limited n...

with sea creatures and granulated "sand" decoration, length 6 1/4 inches, weight 1.73 Troy ounces, excellent original condition, no monogram.

One factor which ultimately contributed to the demise of his firm was that George Shiebler's best designs were difficult to execute and costly to produce. Not many of these forks were made, and the surviving examples vary in quality and condition.

You'll see various historical and current listings, but this is the finest one we've ever had th...

A delightful bit of Victoriana where function follows form, as each tine is shaped like a tiny cucumber.

Let's face it: after months and months of enduring the pandemic, you're probably ready for a drink and perhaps two. Might as well do it in style with this high quality antique julep cup.

Though other (albeit some slightly cheaper; some not) examples by Mr. Hudson have come on the market, none that I've seen have --at just shy of six (5.94) Troy ounces --been so heavy and well constructed. A few very minor dings but fine overall condition and monogrammed in period script as shown.

length 8 3/4 inches, weight 3.74 Troy ounces, attractively bright-cut and gilded bowl, monogrammed as shown in third enlargement.

Originally given as a 25th wedding anniversary gift in 1893, it would well serve this function again today for your friends who appreciate fine antiques. Then again, this piece does not appear to have had much use since 1893, so if your own collection is wanting a benchmark example of this lovely old Gorham pattern, look no farther, just click that link and se...

Founded in 1882 by Harrison Grey Fiske, a New York socialite whose life work revolved around theater productions and support of those who made them possible, the Actors Fund (actorsfund.org) to this day gives financial assistance and provides retirement housing to those who make their careers in the performing arts.  

In the early days of this organization, several fairs were held to create an endowment from which they could sustain their work.  This spoon and others like it would hav...

For the sake of accuracy, we'll mention that one piercing is slightly ajar (you may be able to see this in our third enlargement) but this is visible only with magnification, not to the naked eye.

width 11 1/4; depth 6 inches, excellent original condition, no monogram, weight 23.4 Troy ounces (!), please see fifth enlargement for mark. The ink holder is a hand wrought gilt sterling (modern) replacement, which we think an improvement over the original which was glass.

A William C. Codman design, identical examples may be found in both the Jolie and Robert Shelton Collection, "Magnificent, Marvelous Martelé," pp. 498-9 and the MFA Boston, accession number 2001.804

marked only "sterling 4," these are probably Whiting or Gorham, circa 1868. They are of exceptional quality and workmanship, each arm comprising a grapevine (complete with added "age" marks!) with two applied grape leafs and a dangling cluster of grapes. A splendid example of Victoriana, and similar in theme to cheese scoops with figural mice, as their form defines their function.

Length 7 5/8 inches, weight 3.82 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.

diameter, 8.5"; height .75"; weight 14.0 oz. Troy; a few minor scratches and dents but excellent overall condition, no monogram, marked as shown in fifth enlargement.

Some similarities such as the ring-matte chasing (see second photo) exist between this and China Trade items which were imported to Boston during an albeit slightly later time frame, (see Forbes, figures 41 and 153), which along with the four toed feet and overall chunky-ness of this item leads me to wonder if Messr's Welles a...

Edward Holland Hastings was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on February 1, 1857.   This dramatic christening cup from the gentleman whom we presume to be his uncle, Edward M. Holland, presaged a distinguished career as owner and impresario.

After spending a year at Cambridge High School, he prepared for four years at Philip Academy in Exeter, NH.   Immensely popular with his schoolmates, he was elected class president  and entered Harvard upon graduation.   Illness prevented him from...

Whitingham circa 1800, length 5 5/8 inches, total Troy weight .79 oz., very good condition, period script mono (obverse) and a slightly later one (reverse), marked as shown in third enlargement.

Notable as birthplace of Brigham Young, the town was a mere thirty years old when these spoons were made. We marvel a bit that such a small, rural spot could support its own silversmith, and can't help but suspect that he dabbled in other trades.
