A sweet sterling silver salt spoon with a gilt bowl, the teardrop handle showing a floral decoration at the handle base and again at midpoint, with what appears to be a spread of English ivy at the curled handle tip.
Measuring 3-1/4" long, the back of the handle is marked Sterling Baird-North Co., which, according to the Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers, was largely a distributor in the early 1900s, potentially leaving the true maker of this sweet sterling s..
A beautiful blue opalescent footed salver in the Tokyo pattern by Jefferson Glass, a gorgeous antique piece of glass that I have seen referred to as a card receiver, compote, tidbit tray, and even a donut plate. However, an old advertisement for Jefferson's "Best" and ever-popular opalescent assortment lists this treasure as a 6-5/8" high footed salver.
The Tokyo pattern is one that causes a bit of confusion for some, given one book's vague reference to potential reproduct..

A wonderful large English earthenware pitcher or jug, likely from the Staffordshire region, with an unusual decorative mix. Around the body of the jug is a raised rope design forming four 6-sided polygon frames, three of which have brown transferware images of what I speculate are English warriors, each image having a golden luster finish. (The fourth panel is where the handle joins the jug body.) At the rim of the pitcher, both inside and out, is a lovely brown lattice and t..

A gorgeous crystal art glass cordial liquor decanter with rich red enameled grape vines, all hand-painted and trimmed in gold around the decanter's teardrop belly. The short tapered foot, spout rim, bubble stopper, and handle all have a gilt trim, with both ends of the applied handle adorned by a trefoil leaf.
Standing 9" high to the stopper top, I'm uncertain as to whether this decanter would have been used for dessert wine, as a vinegar cruet, or simply for display.

To the average person, it looks like a green glass violin bottle, but seasoned collectors will recognize this as one of the more challenging LV viobots to acquire. With a curved measure of notes near the shoulders, across the back, the determining element - an embossed JAPAN on the underside - confirms that this bottle is of the uncommon type, at least hard to find and some might classify rare.
Standing 9-5/8" high and 4-1/4" wide at the base, this bottle is in fabulou..
