Only that I don't think I had much to add to the analysis of Tom's chair-wood types, age etc.I guess there are no stupid questions especially with antiques where so much is a mystery/debatable. It really is a treasure hunt.

Hello, House of Charm, I'm sorry to ask this but what exactly do you mean by "from the school of the obvious"? I'm trying to learn here and nothing seems obvious? Sorry. Eric
Comment by House of Charm Antiques Southinc on July 19, 2011 at 7:22pm
I never claim to be an expert as x is an unknown and a spurt is a drip under pressure but your chair, from the school of the obvious, looks 1880-1900 American mahog or maple(or both), machine carved bandsaw splatback. I think it was a telephone chair for a corner somewhere and not on a ship. I think it was made to fit into a spot next to a stairwell with a similar motif, next to a phone perhaps. It is a conundrum. I have one somewhere as wacky-will post when I find it in the furniture section.

Are you a furniture expert?  I bought a corner chair in Spokane 9 years ago. To date I haven't been able to identify it. Previous owner said it came off a steam ship that went aground off the Oregon coast.  I can't see casters on a ship...chair would roll all over the place! But design looks a lot like an old side wheeler steamboat. Also known as a Nursing Chair.

Chair has been re-upholstered.  No marks on it anywhere. Bottom is jute stapled to wood.

Any help you can give me Charm, or others, would be appreciated.

Charm, write it down this time...

ICE CREAM FORK. (not spoon). St. Dunstan pattern 1909.

5-5/8" length (Double check your measurements). Replacements Code under St. Dunstan is ICF. Value $79.95 X 8 = $639.60.

I hope I can help out with furniture for you all as much as you do in here...

Replacements.com silver shows many of Tiffany's pieces. When you open the link look on the left-hand margin in dark blue and click on that. It will open to various design pictures, several pages of them. You can find your pattern name and maybe the name of the item too.  Link:

Well, Charm in the case of anything "Tiffany" you will find the basic value increses by quite a bit - just because of the name on it. Check out a similar set online to find the value.

Perhaps the base price Tom's provided is an excellent way to begin an online auction value? But, I'm near possitive it would well exceed that!

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on July 19, 2011 at 1:44pm

Fast foods call em "sporks". Not a Grapefruit spoon.

17 troy ounces X price of silver per ounce, X purity of silver (sterling is 92.5) = value of silver. Example:

17 x $35. x 92.5% = $550. less smelter's or broker's commission (3-25%). 

If your silver has monograms,  the value is decreased.

 

Comment by House of Charm Antiques Southinc on July 19, 2011 at 1:11pm

And I may as well ask opinions on value, the set of 12 Tiffany SS in dirty orig felt roll weighs about 17troys total.
