An elegant sterling silver soup ladle in Whiting’s 1890 “Old King” pattern. The shell and acanthus leaf design elements of the handle appeared in many flatware variations since the Georgian era, and has become an established classic for its restrained elegance. The bowl is parcel gilt for nice contrast. The back of the ladle is stamped with the retailer’s mark for Theodore B. Starr. Starr had agreements with several major silversmiths who provided the store with fine silver to which they applied the retailer’s mark rather than the manufacturer’s.

Origin: America, ca. 1895. Condition: excellent, sharp detail, light fading to the original gilding, no monogram. Size: 13-/4” long. Weight: 218.0 grams.

A lovely bright olive green vase with molded ribbed blocking and cold-gilt gold and platinum decoration depicting thistles. The gilding is of very fine quality and has almost an Aesthetic Movement appearance. The vase uses a cased construction of various layers of clear and colored glass typical of Moser.

A beautiful Art Nouveau panel-cut crystal vase, the surface completely etched in a swirling design of flowers resembling columbines. The etching is highlighted with soft gilt details that bring out the depth of the pattern. The rim of the vase is finished in a sawtooth pattern derived from the shapes of the engraved blossoms. Although often attributed to Moser, this style of engraving with gilt highlights is typical of the Art Nouveau designs from the great Bohemian glasshouse Harrach. The quality of the crystal itself, as well as the workmanship, easily illustrates why Harrach was considered a primary competitor to Moser.

Origin: Bohemia, ca. 1910. Condition: excellent, no chips or cracks, gilding intact. Size: 14-1/2” tall.

A wonderful Art Nouveau sterling silver cracker scoop in Blackinton’s 1904 “Daisy” pattern. The handle, decorated with flowers and foliage, nicely accents the ruffled edge of the bowl. Cracker scoops were originally used to serve small crackers similar to today’s oyster crackers. Now, the piece could be used to serve a variety of foods.

The simply-shaped handle is decorated with bright-cut engraving of foliage with a spray of lilies-of-the-valley cascading across the end. The bowl is matte gilt and pierced in a pleasant design that does not compete with the restrained decoration of the handle. Sugar sifters were used to sprinkle sugar over fruit during the dessert service, and are not terribly common. The reverse has a period inscription, “Wade”, and is stamped with Whiting’s hallmark.

Stunning late Retro leaf brooch in 14K yellow gold with platinum accents, set with diamonds and blue sapphires. The curving leaf form is lightened by the use of wire construction, a technique seen especially in French jewels just after World War II. The lower edge of the wire leaf is set with a graduated row of cushion- and old European-cut diamonds, while the upper border is accented with a row of sapphires. Two additional diamonds are set at one side of the brooch near the smaller solid gold leaves. The diamonds are all prong set in platinum. Counterclockwise from the diamond at the top of the brooch, the three larger stones are estimated at: .350 carat, I, VS1; .348 carat, I, VS1; and .450 carat, K, VS2. This is an especially elegant example of a mid-century jewelry style that can sometimes appear a bit clunky. Marked 14K.

Origin: America, ca. 1948. Condition: excellent, all original. Size: 1-11/16" x 1-1/8". Weight: 7.5 grams. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: sapphire, .5 carat; diamond, 2.01 carats.

An extraordinary piece of sporting jewelry—a brooch featuring an enameled fox’s head superimposed over various implements of the hunt. The brooch itself is in the shape of a horseshoe, each hole set with an old mine-cut diamond. A riding crop and a whip are superimposed over the horseshoe. The crowning touch, however, is the fabulous fox’s head completely covered in some of the best Newark enameling we’ve seen. The lifelike colors and are just stunning. The eyes are set with small rubies which contribute to the ferocious look established by the jagged gold teeth. Exposed areas of gold have a slight matte bloom more typically seen in French Art Nouveau jewels. This brooch is prominently pictured in “Masterpieces of American Jewelry”, which was published to accompany the 2005 exibition of American jewels at New York’s Museum of American Folk Art. The brooch is unsigned, but is definitely by Alling Bros.

Origin: America, ca. 1910. Condition: excellent, all original, no enamel damage. Size: 15/16” x 1-5/16”. Weight: 6.5 grams. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: diamond, .1 carat; ruby, .05 carat.

Outstanding pair of early Art Nouveau 18K yellow gold earrings set with aquamarines. The surmounts, each set with three aquamarine beads, support double chains suspending shields set with oval aquamarines, in turn fringed with chain drops terminating in balls. The shields have foliate decoration that just begin to show the Art Nouveau sensibility. The chain elements are textured in the style more often associated with Etruscan Revival pieces. The aquamarines are of very fine quality with superb color and clarity. The earrings have lots of movement. They are long, yet are light enough to be worn comfortably. The earrings have been converted to screwbacks, but could easily revert to wires or even posts. Tested and guaranteed 18K gold.

A phenomenal Victorian 18K yellow gold brooch in the Etruscan Revival taste. The brooch features a large azurite-malachite cabochon weighing more than 60 carats. The natural fissures, and blue and green color mottling is striking, especially against the richness of the gold. The setting is one of the best Etruscan frames we’ve seen, befitting a minerological specimen that would have been considered extravagantly exotic (probably originating in Afghanistan). The stone is set in a collet surrounded with a border of beaded rosettes flanked on either side with delicate twisted wire. The frame is decorated at compass points with shell motifs outlined with twisted wirework. Cyma scrolls and graduated beading fill the space between the shells. The surface of the gold has the slightly matte bloomed finish that lends the appearance of antiquity to the better Etruscan pieces. The back of the brooch retains the original c-clasp and extended pinstem. Tested and guaranteed 18K gold.

Origin: America or England, ca. 1860. Condition: excellent, the border has two of the tiny rosettes and a tiny portion of one cyma scroll missing, but these are noticeable only upon very close inspection. Size: 2” x 1-11/16”. Weight: 19.75 grams.

The diamonds have very nice color, probably in the G-H range, and good clarity estimated at SI2. The rubies have intense color that contrasts beautifully with the gold.

A very nice lacquered papier-mache tabletop box, the cover with colorful Chinoiserie scene. The decoration depicts a noble lady and gentlemen being entertained by a troop of magicians in their garden. While two of the magicians look on, the third is juggling four balls. This is a very whimsical design that makes this box really special. The hinged lid has a lock (alas, the key is long gone). Lacquered boxes of this sort were popular in both England and France, and the quality of decoration would suggest a French origin.

Origin: France, ca. 1850. Condition: excellent, a tight hairline at one back corner by the hinge. Size: 11” x 7” x 2-3/4”.

A lovely Victorian honeymoon brooch in 14K yellow gold. The traditional crescent shape supports a gold violet enameled in rich shades of rose, purple and cream and accented with green veining on the petals. The flower is centered with a small prong-set old mine cut ruby. Flowers of the sort were often set with a small diamond, but the vivid color of the ruby is very attractive with the flower’s color. In the Victorian language of flowers, the crescent shape represented “moon” and the flower represented sweetness or “honey”, thus “honeymoon”. Pins such as these were popular gifts from grooms to their new brides. The original early safety clasp has an unidentified maker’s mark. The extended pinstem, though original, is not gold, but the remainder of the brooch is tested and guaranteed 14K.

Origin: America, ca. 1890. Condition: all original, the enamel has a 1/16” flake on the tip of one flower petal. Size: 7/8” x 3/4". Weight: 2.5 grams.
