Repousse Coin Silver Teapot and Stand Unicorn Crest 1840

.Repousse Coin Silver Teapot and Stand Unicorn Crest 1840

code: wb610

American coin silver teapot and matching stand in the Repousse pattern. The pot is made and marked by Samuel Kirk and Son. The stand or tray is made and marked by Andrew Ellicott Warner and over stamped by Kirk, likely the result of Kirk’s need for the stand to accommodate his customer. Possibly, the person who presented the stand needed it on short notice and was a customer of Kirk’s and Kirk went to Warner to obtain the stand. This serves to well illustrate how interchangeable the Baltimore Repousse silver was and calls into question the common idiosyncrasy of some who insist on only having Kirk or Stieff, etc. Both pieces bear the same skillfully engraved family crest of a rampant Unicorn. The stand has the inscription on the bottom: "From Mrs.Whitridge to N. G. Thomas". The pot has allover Repousse floral decorations, sits on a circular, spread foot repousse base and has repousse handle with ivory insulators. The stand has a Repousse border and the Crest is located in the middle of a hand engraved field, surrounded by foliate engraving and sits on four ball and claw feet.

The bowl is in excellent original condition, with a wonderful finish and no repairs or alterations. Novick is an extremely desirable Chicago Silversmith whose work seldom comes on the market. The best book on Chicago silver is Sharon S. Darling′s Chicago Silversmiths, published in 1977 as a catalog of an exhibition by the Chicago Historical Society. Darling mentions dozens of silversmiths who worked in Chicago, but several stand out. One is Falick Novick, who came to America from Russia in 1893 at the age of 15, and was initially employed as a plumber′s assistant. In 1907, he moved to Chicago to work as a silversmith, but struggled for years. Novick produced copper bowls for the Kalo Shop until 1920, when it stopped selling copper items, and started making the heavy silver items for which he is best known. He eventually prospered and sold his work through retail outlets such as Macy′s until he died in 1957. Novick′s mark was usually STERLING / HANDWROUGHT / BY / F. NOVICK / CHICAGO, although the city was sometimes omitted. His work, and that of Heinrich Eicher, is on a par with Kalo. Dimensions: weight 13.6 ozs.

Coin 950 Silver Presentation Coffee Pot 1856

.Coin 950 Silver Presentation Coffee Pot 1856

code: wb617

American sterling 950 silver presentation coffee pot with allover engine turned decorations, die rolled bands of decorations, a pomegranate filial and a fancy C scroll handle with ivory insulators. Inscribed: Presented to Geo Gault by his late partners, Loomis Bullard, H. B. Shute, the pot is in excellent original condition, with no repairs or alterations. It sits on a spread foot, circular pedestal base. We call this a coin silver pot, as it was made in the coin silver period of American silver production, even though the silver content is 950/100, as per the requirements of Ball Black & Co, the New York City, retailers of this wonderful piece. This coffee pot was made by the firm of Eaton, Gordon and Bogert. More about them below. In 1856 William Bogert left Forbes and moved to Newburgh, where he joined William R. Eaton and John Gordon (his father and brothers former apprentice and the husband of his niece Sarah) in the partnership of Eaton, Gordon, and Bogert, silversmiths. Their wares, marked "E G & B," were largely supplied to the retail jewelers Ball, Black and Company (successor in 1851 to Ball, Tompkins and Black) in New York City. In 1860 Eaton retired from the partnership, which became Gordon and Bogert (with the mark "G & B"). That firm is listed in the 1860 Federal census of the products of industry as makers of silverware with nine male employees and $3,800 in capital, annually utilizing forty-five hundred ounces of coin-standard silver (900/1000) and an equal amount of pure silver (999/1000). Interestingly, the average fineness of their silver, 950/1000, was the standard required by Ball, Black and Company for their silverware from the late 1850s to the early 1860s, suggesting that a great proportion, if not all, of Gordon and Bogert′s production was for Ball, Black and Company Surviving examples suggest that the bulk of it was hollow ware.
