Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!

One of my consignors takes in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items I can.

Up for offer now…

AGE: C.1904

ITEM: Made by Gorham for only a few short years, here's a stunning serving set in silver! Called Virginiana andfeaturing a floral design (poppies, orchids and other flowers and foliage), the set comprises a serving fork and slotted serving spoon. Definitely a dessert set, I think, for Trifle, Strawberry Shortcake, Fruit - any sweet confection you can think of that comes in a large bowl!

CONDITION: Very nice - nice strike to the pieces though I suspect this might be a recast set. This was commonly done in the old days with silver pieces that were too cost prohibitive to buy from the original makers.

METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver

HALLMARKS: STERLING (on both pieces). That's it - no other marks.

SIZE: The fork measures 9-3/4" long; width at the tines is 2-9/16". The spoon measures about 10" long; width at the bowl is 2-11/16".

WEIGHT: Fork weighs 99.4 grams; spoon weighs 111.4 grams; total is 210.8 grams (about 6-3/4 ounces).

RETAIL TODAY - Another dealer has the set on sale for $383; the replacement site wants $499.99 for the last set they have.

FINAL COMMENTS: When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.

Anyone want?
