This fully original, solid silver, server measures 9" long and weighs 2.4 T. oz. It is in the form of a tomato server, but larger than that item (7 3/4" long in this pattern).

Price for the set of eight.
Each of these eight, matching forks, measures 7 3/16" long, while the group weighs a substantial 11.6 T. oz.

Marked "Sterling," they were retailed by Boston's Crosby & Morse (1864-69) and carry forward some of the design sensibilities of earlier coin silver flatware.

They have plain handles with rounded and upturned terminals. The lower sections are engraved in a period design with a central palmette motif, while the ends have script "EL" monograms. The backsides are unadorned...

Issued in 1891, Durgin's "Louis XV" is a dense design that reflects quite a different, and more complex, interpretation of the motif from Whiting's much simpler pattern of the same name produced in the same year.

This example is a 7 7/8" long, relatively weighty 1.0 T. oz., lettuce fork.

The overall condition is excellent and there is no monogram or removal. The tines retain a portion of an original gold wash and are pointed and free of bends or burrs...

The first in-house pattern produced by Tiffany became the company's namesake design, designated "Tiffany," and reflected Greek Revival design sensibilities. "Beekman" was an 1880s or 1890s reissue of the line, with slight changes.

This 7" long, 1.4 T. oz., preserve spoon is an example of the original pattern, retaining side knobs and having a pointed anthemion tip.

It is marked "Tiffany & Company," "Sterling," Pat. 1869," and with a lower case "m," dating it no later than 1891...

A very large item measuring 10 3/4" long overall, with a blade that is 5" by 2 1/2" at the widest, and weighing 4.1 T. oz., this solid silver pie server traces to the Boston Arts & Crafts movement as it existed during the first half of the twentieth century.

Dating to the mid 20th century (1952), this 7 1/2" long, weighty at 2.0 T. oz., fork is fully hallmarked for the year, sterling, and maker, "Worcester Silver Company," London, England.

While a relatively contemporary piece, the scrolled terminal pattern, "Onslow," is an older English design, and the three tine configuration also harkens to an earlier period, all defining this as a reproduction piece.

Never monogrammed, it is in excellent estate condition. There is no visible wear, the t...

Price for the pair.
A well-regarded name among Arts & Crafts producers, with an expertise in reproduction silver, New York's Currier & Roby was both a manufacturer and retailer.

This matched pair of 3" long, .6 T. oz. combined, master salt spoons marked with the company "CR" emblem, "Sterling," and "26 S," are no doubt inhouse production items, consistent with the firm's best work generated during the first quarter of the 20th century.

Measuring 7 3/8" long and weighing 1.7 T. oz., this sterling silver sugar sifter is a fine example of quality 18th century English silversmithing.

The marks are rubbed, but clear enough to identify the maker's stamp, TC on the horizontal intersecting with WC on the vertical, belonging to Thomas and William Chawner, as attributed by Grimwade in the "unregistered marks" section. The leopard and lion are blurred but legible, while the date letter is difficult to identify precisely, but the Got...
