Issued at the turn of the 20th century, Gorham's "Henry II" pattern was an homage in design to the English court at a dramatic time in its history.

The central feature is a lion's face set midway on the handle. This is surrounded by an array of acanthus leaf (one of which forms the tongue of the lion), fruit, scrolls, and scaling as would be found on a suit of armor.

This piece is an all original, 5 3/4" long, .8 T...

An impressive serving piece that measures 8 3/8" long and weighs nearly 2.7 T. oz., this item has a double provenance that traces to the late 19th century.

First, the pattern is "Luxembourg" made by Gorham and introduced in 1893. This particular example is a pea spoon with a large, round, 3" diameter, reticulated, shallow bowl with a gold finish on both sides.

Secondly, the handle front is engraved "Whist Club" and the backside reads "1897." While this could reference numerous organization...

Utilizing an "Old English," i.e. rounded end with a reverse tipt back, form, "Lily Engraved" is one of numerous bright cut designs Whiting and other manufacturers produced in the 1880s.

Attractive and artful, these patterns showcased the skills of engravers of the period and were apparently well received in their time, given the variety of examples still available today.

This piece is a lengthy, 10 1/2", 3.1 T. oz., all silver fish slice.

The blade is relatively slender, slightly concav...

Arguably the line by which all other Art Nouveau floral designs are measured, Durgin's 1900 "New Art" embodies the exuberance, lushness, and fullness of expression that characterizes this style mode.

Multi-motif, the portraiture on this 8 9/16" long, heavy at 4.1 T. oz., cold meat fork is lily. The blossoms and leaves fold over and upon one another, rising from of the surface of the silver as if sculped out of the material.

It is an early example, marked with Durgin's "D" emblem, "Sterling...
