Hotchkiss & Schreuder 'Medallion' Antique Sterling and Coin Silver Forks, set of 12, Syracuse, NY c. 1873

Notify me when similar is available:

This is a beautiful set of 'Medallion' pattern forks by Hotchkiss & Schreuder. In Silver Medallion Flatware, Donald Soeffing identifies the medallion as the young Dionysus. It is a profile of a young man wearing a wreath of grapevine. The backs of the spoons are engraved with original 'R' initials in an old English style.

This lovely set of medallion is marked on the back 'H&S,' and by St. Louis, Missouri retailer 'MERMOD JACCARD & CO.'  Six are marked 'STERLING.' The others are coin silver, most likely produced as the firm was transitioning from coin to sterling silver. They measure just under 7 inches long, weigh a combined 17.50 troy ounces, and are in excellent antique condition.
