Sterling Silver

We don’t clean or polish our silver because lots of folks like the patinated look!

Sterling silver flask and card case set

Sterling character, sterling taste, sterling accessories for a sterling gentleman! This stunning 950 silver set is most likely a true antique and consists of a 6-3/4" x 3-5/8" x 3/4" flask and matching 3-1/2" x 3-3/4" x 5/8" card case. Or, if the sterling gentleman is a smoker, he can use it as a cigarette case, clearly its original intended purpose. How serendipitous that yesteryear’s cigarette case is the perfect size for holding today’s business cards! The hinged case has a snap closure and opens flat. Inside, a removable silver cross piece, originally for holding cigarettes in place, holds business cards just as securely. The flask’s front panel and both the front and back of the card case are engraved in an exquisitely detailed leaf and vine pattern. The workmanship is absolutely superb. The flask’s gently concave back is hammered silver, and its sides, shoulders, and bottom are unadorned. Its screw-off domed cap reveals a separate thimble jigger inside, plus a second screw-off cap with interior cork inset. Neither the flask nor the case carries a maker’s mark, which is astounding given the quality of the workmanship, but the flask bottom and the case interior are both marked “Sterling 950,” making them purer than sterling. A 7/8" x 3/8" rectangle on the card case’s front is ready for engraving with a name or initials. The flask’s 1" x 5/16" front rectangle is engraved “Willie” in beautiful script, but should you wish a different name, a good jeweler can easily affix a new plate engraved with your own name or initials, or those of the sterling gentleman to whom you plan to give this remarkably beautiful and distinctive silver set, both pieces of which are in outstanding vintage condition.

Oneida candlestick

This vintage little Oneida sterling silver piece can do double duty. Sit it on its 3" diameter base and it’s a 3-1/2" tall candlestick that would hold a 7/8" taper. Flip it over, and it makes a lovely little compote or candy dish sitting on its fluted 1-1/4" diameter base! Either way, it’s in perfect condition except for the tarnish. Stamped “Oneida Silversmiths”. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Mueck sugar and creamer

This is a vintage sterling silver sugar and creamer set that must have looked very modernistic back in the 1940's or 1950's when it was created by the Mueck-Carey Company of New York. Sleek design, not at all ornate, and the handle design of the sugar makes it look like a trophy cup. Both pieces are 3-1/4" high with diameters of 2-7/8" at the rims and 2-1/8" at the bases. Bottoms of both are stamped “Sterling silver reinforced with cement” and carry the bracketed M mark of Mueck-Carey. The creamer also carries the number 521. Other than the tarnish, both pieces are in excellent shape, with only a couple of pinprick dings on the base rim of the sugar. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Towle candlesticks

This is a pair of vintage Towle weighted sterling silver candlesticks that stand 4-1/2" tall with diameters of 3-1/2" at the base and 2-7/8" at the top shoulder. Would take 7/8" diameter tapers. Bottoms have a circular stamp reading “Towle Sterling Weighted and Reinforced”, in the center of which is the Towle hallmark and the numbers 730. Both candlesticks are only slightly tarnished and in otherwise good condition, with only a very tiny ding or two on their respective bases. One of them has a dent at its base rim and damage at the center of the base underside, making it nearly impossible to read the stamp. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Sauce bowl with wooden handle

This vintage sterling silver sauce bowl stands 3" high, has a 2-3/4" diameter mouth, a 2-1/8" diameter base, and measures 6-3/4" across to the tip of its wooden handle. There are three faint hallmarks on the bottom, all of them shields. The left one contains what might be a castle, the middle one what might be a flower, and the right one what is definitely a crown. Except for the tarnish, the sauce bowl is in perfect condition, with no dings or scratches. The wooden handle, while somewhat dry, has no cracks or splits. (Click on picture for more images.)

6-piece set of hors d’oeuvre picks

This is a set of six beautiful ornate sterling silver hors d’oeuvres picks. Picks range in length from about 2-3/4" to about 3", and no two finials are the same. Each blade is stamped “Sterling”. Outstanding condition; I doubt they’ve ever been used, and they’ve lived in a protective plastic bag for who knows how many decades. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Rogers silver and glass wine coaster

This is a glass wine coaster with a 1/2" sterling silver “cap” around its top edge. It stands 3/4" high with diameters of 3-3/4" top, 2-7/8" opening, and 2-3/4" base. The raised motif in the glass is a large X with a 3-petaled flower on each side. The silver cap has a rope edge on its inner edge and is stamped “Trade Mark FB Rogers Silver Co sterling”. It also carries the crown hallmark with 18 on one side and 83 on the other. (The Rogers Silver Co. was founded in 1883.) Glass is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Silver has numerous tiny pinprick pits that add character to this vintage piece which may well be a true antique. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Duchin Creation cake plate with sterling base

This lovely old pedestal cake plate is quite heavy and stands 4-1/4" tall with diameters of 10-3/4" at its glass top and 3-1/2" at its sterling silver base. The plate has a smooth top, beaded Candlewick-style edge, and a raised “burst” design on its underside consisting of straight lines and diamonds. The silver base with decorative bands around its bottom edge looks like a candlestick, and not without reason. It screws off so as not to be harmed when washing the glass cake plate, but once off, you can actually use it as a 3" tall candlestick that takes a 3/4" diameter taper! Its bottom is stamped “sterling weighted” and carries a hallmark in the shape of a hand and the words “Duchin Creation”. Glass is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Other than the tarnish, the silver base is also in perfect condition with no dings or dents. A very attractive and quite versatile cake plate / candlestick! Be sure to see our companion compote listed immediately below. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Duchin Creation candy dish with sterling base

This beautiful little Duchin Creation compote is a companion piece to our cake plate listed immediately above. The flared glass dish has the same lines and diamonds design, as well as the Candlewick-style beaded edge, this time on a 5-3/4" diameter ruffled octagonal rim. Piece stands 4-1/4" high. Its silver base also screws off and can be used as a 2-1/4" tall candlestick that takes a 3/4" taper. Bottom is 2-1/2" in diameter, stamped “sterling weighted,” and carries a hallmark in the shape of a hand and the words “Duchin Creation”. Glass is in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Other than very slight tarnish, the silver base is also in perfect condition with no dings or dents. Paired with the cake plate, these two pieces make a striking display. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Hammered sterling silver hip flask

This is a beautiful old hammered sterling silver hip flask that measures 5-7/8" x 3-1/4"  x 3/4" deep. Gently curved to fit comfortably in a gentleman’s trouser or jacket pocket, the flask is double lidded. The outer 1-1/4" tall x 1" diameter lid screws off to reveal the smaller inner lid that also screws off and contains a cork inside. If the gentleman felt it was too gauche to take a swig directly from the flask, he could pour the liquor into the outer lid for considerably more genteel imbibing! Bottom is marked “950 silver”, making this flask of slightly higher purity than sterling. Other than the tarnish, it is in near perfect condition, with only one small depression on the bottom front and a tiny dent at the top edge of the outer lid. What looks like a ding towards the top right of the flask in the pictures is really only a tarnish spot. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

English sterling silver inkwell

This is a very old sterling silver inkwell that stands 1-5/8" tall with diameters of 1-3/4" at the hinged lid and 3-5/8" at the base. It has long since lost what surely must have been a glass insert to hold the ink, and the bottom looks like it originally might have had a glued-on felt piece. There are four hallmarks on one side near the bottom (D&S, an anchor, a lion, and an O), and two more inside the lid (a lion and an O). All of the hallmark surrounds (cartouches) are shields, the surround used from 1920-1924, and indicate that this inkwell was made by an English silversmith (D&S) in the town of Birmingham, England (anchor) of sterling silver (lion) in the year 1913 (O). At the time we took the initial pictures, this piece was rather heavily tarnished. However, once Ol’ Swaphos started cleaning it in order to see the hallmarks, he couldn’t stop himself from doing quite a nice overall cleaning, so the final picture shows it in its cleaned condition. This inkwell is in very good condition, especially considering its near-antique status, with only a few small dents in the soft silver and one crease down by the hallmarks.

Wallace Silver Swirl nut dish

What a beautiful little sterling silver nut dish! Wallace’s aptly named Silver Swirl pattern was first introduced in 1955, and the rim of this nut cup indeed features elegant silver swirls. Dish measures 3-3/4" x 2-5/8" x 1/2" tall at the center and 3/4" tall at the end. Bottom is marked “Wallace Sterling” and carries the number 4021. We have two of these superb little nut dishes and price is for each. Both have been very well cared for and are in perfect condition with no dings or dents – they’re not even tarnished!
