The frieze above the waisted tapering body decorated with scrolling foliage, with open square shaped handles, above a spreading foot which are more Gothic than later dolphin type handles. Typical of most early examples, no pestle. Superb color…
(Height: 3.75”, diameter: 3.75”)
Art and utility combined, a preening bird surmounts this heavy-duty trammel which is
further ornamented with piercing and decorative scrolls. The owner’s initials “FSR” over
“AMH” within oval cartouche. Very goof condition and color.
(Length: 38.5"-57"; width: 8.5")
(Back of handle signed “ZC” 1847; skimmer impressed “BCC”)
Intricately wrought shaped handle…extremely rare hanging ring continuing to an arched, flaring and tapering handle, the back features a pronounced ridge; the handles tapers and to a squared section with chamfered edges as it nears the sieve. The handle terminus is magnificently shaped; tapered shoulders and circular device receive large planished copper rivets. The handle appears to be fire gilt or which thinning traces remain. (Fine original condition, superb patina; length: 19")
Pierced ladle featuring raised circular bowl attached with three small rivets to a slender, faceted, downturned handle flattened into a flared and pointed end with pierced hole; all rivets domed on front and flat on back. Back of handle struck "R.LEE" in raised roman letters in a scalloped rectangle. Attributed to Richard Lee Jr. (1775-1858), who worked in Springfield, Vermont, 1795-1815, and Beverly, MA, 1816-1820. Lee Jr. was the son of Richard Lee Sr. (1747-1823), an itinerant pewterer who worked in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Springfield, VT, between 1773 and 1823. Lee Sr. is believed to have sold brass and pewter made by his son; both Lees are thought to have used the same marks, making it difficult to attribute pieces to the father or son.
(Old patina, not polished; small tear centered by rivets, about 3.8 inch, all else fine. Length: 12.25”, diameter: 5”)
