An extremely rare item in the original, this 6 3/4", 1.0 T. oz., example of a corn fork is an older, custom made, or adapted, piece of old "Chantilly" marked "lion, anchor, G," along with "Sterling," "Pat. 1895," and "T," which is a weight designation meaning "trade."

The multi-tine, reticulated serving end is quite faithful to the original, although there are subtle differences that distinguish it.

It is in flawless estate condition, and without a monogram or removal...

Heavy at 2.0 T. oz., this 7" long place fork is marked "Tiffany & Co.," "Sterling," and "m."

The pattern, "Hamilton," dates from 1938, the late Art Deco period.

The thick handle is fiddle shaped with a double lined border, and otherwise plain save for a bit of extra shaping around the shoulders.

Classically French in style, as befits its name, "Du Barry" aka "Madame Du Barry," this sculptural design was issued by Durgin in 1901.

The motif is dominated by laurel and other leaves arranged in sprays, clusters, and wreaths, all surmounted with a scroll handle terminus.

The pattern is high relief and substantial, as evidenced by the 2.0 T. oz. weight of this 7 5/8" long, chipped beef fork...

Relatively large at 11 1/8" long, and weighty at 3.6 T. oz., this fish slice traces to the transition period between coin and sterling silver. Marked "Bigelow Bros. & Kennard" for the prominent Boston firm, "Sterling," and with an "E," which is probably a journeyman's mark, it dates about 1870.

The pattern is an "Oval Thread" with an Old English "C.E.P." monogram engraved sideways on the handle front...

Large at 7 7/8" long and weighty at 1.4 T. oz., this master butter knife is solid sterling silver.

The pattern is Gorham's "Fleury," which is a floral design very reminiscent of that company's "Buttercup," although the flowers in this instance appear to be wild rose, and in that regard, there is a close parallel with Watson's "Meadow Rose."

All these patterns date from the first decade of the 20th century and show the expressiveness of the Art Nouveau style that was popular in the period...

Originally working in Gardner, Massachusetts, Porter George Blanchard became arguably the premier name in the history of 20th century, hand crafted silver production in California, where sources indicate he established himself in 1923, and joined shortly thereafter by his father and brother.

His 1920 "Lotus," which is the pattern on this 6 1/8" long, .7 T. oz., teaspoon, exhibits the clean, simple lines and textured surfaces that define the Arts & Crafts style.

The bowl is particularly a...

A 9 3/4" long, heavy at nearly 3.4 T. oz., item, this spoon in Whiting's "King Edward" is identified by different sources as a large berry or salad serving spoon.

It has a relatively long and narrow, 4" by 2 3/8" by 3/8" deep, bowl, with a raised shell design in the interior as is consistent with the line, while the edge is plain rather than fluted which is more typical in this pattern.

A well-received and elaborate rendition of a design derived from English "Kings," "King Edward" incorpor...

One of the major names in 19th century San Francisco silver manufacturing, Koehler & Ritter produced several full line patterns, holloware, and even some monumental individual items (see Silver in the Golden State).

Similar in style to Gorham's Greek Revival "Corinthian" of the same c. 1870 period, it is more embellished than that pattern, with added ivy sprays whi...
