GEORG JENSEN STERLING SILVER SALAD SET (serving fork and spoon), signed
"GEORG JENSEN INC.
U. S. A. STERLING",
204.2 g or 6.6 oz. OF STERLING SILVER, about 9 1/2" - 9 5/8" long, I am
guessing these are from the 1950's - 1960's, monogrammed with a "C", excellent
condition with no real damage. No repairs or dents. There is
light over all scratching that would come with light use. In a few
places (particularly the back of the bowls where the pieces would be laid
down), there are a few more distinctive scratches, but nothing really detracting
or that stands out as a defect. Again, there is no real damage, just
A silver cloth
pouch (only one pouch) will be included, but it is quite grubby and has
a couple of food stains on it. I did not try to wash it as I did
not want to diminish its protectiveness.
|RARE 1875 PARIS
EXPOSITION INTERNATIONALE METAL DIGESTER, "SUSTENTEUR LUCOTTE",
Victorian era, French made, It is marked on the lid with a double circle.
The left circle has what looks like a picture of machines and fabric and
says, "Exposition Internationale". The right circle has part of a
wreath (laurel?) and says "Paris 1875". The other side of the lid
says "SUSTENTEUR LUCOTTE". The "sustenteur" means digester in French.
I am pretty certain that Lucotte is the maker of the piece.
Over the double circle there is "Me ..... gent". I gather
from my research it ws supposed to say "Medaille D'Argent" (which
I think means it won a silver medal for design at the Exposition).
I do not know if the rest of the letters have worn off or if it was just
a poorer pressing -- I am inclined to think it is a poorer pressing.
A digester was for making an overcooked stew which was used to feed invalids
or for travel. Typically, digesters have calcium deposits on the
inside. The top screws down tight for the cooking.
is a "L" a bee (representative of Napoleon) and then a "C", the 2 on the
bottom with the hallmark is usually indicative of the weight of the metal,
this seems like the metal is pretty heavy. I think it is probably
pewter although it is not marked pewter.
The pitcher measures
6" high. It is about 5 1/2" wide at the widest point.
It is 3" in diameter at the base. The mouth of the digester is 3
1/4" in diameter.
is good to fair. There are dents around the body and lid as
shown and some light overall scratching. the lid screws down very
tight still. The lid has some heavier scratches in the one spot as
shown in the top photo. There are some irregularities in the tone
of metal where it has not aged uniformly. There are some very light
lines (like drip lines) which I think have come from an earlier cleaning.
I have not cleaned or polished this item. It has a nice patina.
There is discoloration
on the bottom which I believe is due to the mineral deposits from being
cooked in water (which is how I gather the digester is used to cook).
There are also calcium deposits on the inside of the piece. Calcium
deposits usually come out with Lime Away and a little elbow grease.
digesters are very hard to find. This one is particularly special
and rare because it is from the Paris Exposition of 1875.
China ORANGE POPPY 9 1/2" TRIVET / CAKE PLATE with Gold trim, marked "Superior
Hall Quality Dinnerware" and "80" on the bottom, very good condition with
some wear on the flowers and gold trim, also some light overall scratching
modern Streamlined design 1940's TOASTSWELL #885 TOASTER, with handles
running vertically and shooting star decoration, works great, fine condition
with mild scratches here and there, but one deeper scratch on each side,
may be missing a covering for the light-dark knob but maybe not as I am
not certain what it is supposed to be like, crack on the plug (will need
to be reinforced at the very least - probably will need to be replaced)
looks much better than my poor photos #CHM27748

INTERNATIONAL SILVER CO. "LADY DENSMORE" ROGERS SILVERPLATE SET, service
for 12, plus 6 serving pieces. 66 pieces in all. There is one extra
slot in the box, but I doubt anything went there as it seems 66 pcs is
a common size set. This set is in its original box (wooden sides
and bottom but cardboard top on the top section). It also has its
original paper saying that the set cost $129.95 in 1956 plus the original
guarantee that the plate is Rogers reinforced plate AA. The
condition is excellent. there is light tarnish and probably some
light scratches. It does not look like it was used much. The
box is a bit worn, but not too bad and it is still sturdy and strong.
I believe this pattern is also known as WOODLAND ROSE.
