Some 19th Century Flatware Patterns

As I’ve researched flatware patterns over the years, I’ve compiled information which I wanted easy access to…thus this post.  I hope it helps you as it has helped (and will continue to help) me.  I’ll be updating it periodically.

Following are some 19th Century flatware patterns shown in alphabetical order by pattern name.  Below each grouping is additional information regarding the patterns shown.

  1. B. Raymond says:

    Hello,I am looking for any information on a pattern called, hall Elton # 3 ,this pattern resembles Tuscan,this same pattern was done by j. o. Mead .It is silverplate over german silver,please help,Raymond

    • queenofsienna says:

      Hello, the only reference that I could find in any of my reference books to Hall Elton Three is in “Silver Plated Flatware Patterns” by Davis and Deibel and they only show an illustration of the pattern with no additional info about it. At this time, I don’t have a patent for this particular design. I haven’t done much research for patents from the 1850s or 1860s yet. The earliest similar design that I have seen was Gibney’s from 1847 but there are others. I was contemplating putting together a post on some of these earlier Tuscan type designs but wanted to do a little more research in the patent office…which is time consuming.

      I’ve seen a recent listing on eBay that mentions “Hall Elton 3″…however, the pattern shown in the listing is not exactly the same as the one in the Davis and Deibel book.

      • Raymond says:

        Hello,Is there any way you would consider posting the one image of Hall & elton #3,I would be interested in seeing an actual image to compare,in the meantime I will be trying to get a second hand copy of the book.Thanks again for all your help,it seems both j.o. Mead and Elton used this pattern who was first? since the back is a dead ringer for Tuscan I think it would have to date after 1846.,Tuscan’s orignal patent. best wishes ,Raymond

      • queenofsienna says:

        Hi, I’ve just put up this post with the image of the Hall Elton Three design that’s listed in Davis and Deibel’s “Silver Plated Flatware Patterns”. The post is here: Look for the 2nd Edition of that Davis and Deibel book…it has 709 pages and is an amazing resource. Hope this helps.

      • B. Raymond says:

        Hello,THANK!!YOU SO SO much for the posting,this is exactly what I was looking for this is the same design that is marked J.O. Mead &co. and also used by Hall & Elton.Now I need to research who came out with it first or was it supplied by another party.From what I understand Tuscan was patent 7-10-1846 ,This design uses the back of Tuscan and the front but modified I now have my work cut out for me.Thanks again so much for your help and comments,I will keep you posted with the results,hane a great weekend,Raymond

  2. stephanie says:

    I have a pattern done by wm rogers and so i.s. and I cant Identify it name, ive search for and while now and cant figure it out if I send a picture to u would u be able to tell me more about it please and thank you Stephanie

  3. Tom Forsell says:


    I always enjoy your posts. I have been collecting a few small lots of Coral by Sheffield Plate Co. Do you have any history on this pattern and the company? It is a rather strange pattern. It seems to be rather cheaply stamped on a plain piece of metal. However, the stamp is rather beautiful. Some pieces have very faint pattern.

    • queenofsienna says:

      Hello, Tom. Hope all is well!

      With regard to a strike at the Derby Silver Co., an 1887 publication listed one of the marks used by Derby as Sheffield Plate Co. (see my Edwin Brittin’s Squirrel post). However, in Davis & Diebel’s book the “Coral” pattern is shown as “Sterling Silver Plate Three”. Now in Eileen Woodhead’s book, she attributes the “Sterling Silver Plate” mark to Holmes, Booth & Haydens who apparently also had the backstamp “Sheffield Plated Co.” (Plated…ed). I’ve seen the “Coral” pattern marked with the “Sterling Sil. Plt. Co.” mark as well as “Sheffield Plate Co.” There is a pickle fork in this pattern on Ebay now with the Sheffield Plate mark. I’m not familiar with a patent for this pattern.

  4. Julles Mills says:

    I also have a pattern I cannot identify. It is an 1834 J Russell & Co. It has a fan tail with a picture of a swan. Lovely but no one seems to know the name. How can I send you a pix?

  5. Christy says:

    I have a pattern from Dirby Silver Co. That I can’t seem to locate the name of. It resembles the lily of the Valley but has the butterfly. And also has the bow tie with straight lines down the handle. Wondering if you have run across this pattern?

    • queenofsienna says:

      Hi, I believe the Derby Silver Co. pattern you describe is called “Bouquet”. I need to update my listings!

  6. Amy Percy says:

    Can you help identify this item? It is marked *ROGERS&SON.A1 – a scalloped serving spoon, floral stamped or embossed handle – the pattern is lilies and other flowers and leaves and goes from the tip of the handle to just under the spoon, just on the front. I can’t find an image match anywhere. Thank you for your time.

  7. Tom Forsell says:

    Just noticed, I don’t see Gem, by Reed and Barton (1871). Perhaps I have missed it. Thanks for all of the great information you have given me.

    • queenofsienna says:

      Hi, Tom! You’re right, Gem isn’t in this listing. I think my intent was to show aesthetic type patterns as there are so many! I didn’t include what I consider the early classic patterns like Olive, Threaded, Gothic, Cottage, Roman, Persian, Gem, etc. But I didn’t say that, I see. You’ve got good eyes! Hope all is well.

  8. Beverly A Roberts says:

    I’m going to send a picture of this spoon also but it is a scalloped sugar spoon I believe, however, on the handle is stamped “Vassar Female College” and I’m not able to find any information online. I would appreciate any assistance so far as determining a value. Thank you.

  9. Art Tawater says:

    I have found a spoon handle at an old cabin in Texas. The cabin was built in the 1850’s and lived in till the 1940’s. It has a BELMONT mark. It is hard to tell the pattern on the front but it appears to be a corn stalk with large bent leaves and a bent over tassel? at the top.
    I can find nothing on it and am trying to date it. I have pics if I could send them to you. Any help would be appreciated. IThanks

  10. Melissa says:

    Hi! Was searching for information on a spoon I have, in the “Calla” pattern marked Williams Bros. Mfg. Co. and found your fabulous research. So fun to read about the Williams Bros. company in your blog post. Thank you!

  11. Janet Williams says:

    Thank you. This information is very helpful. You’re doing a great thing!

  12. I like your site, it has good articles, Have a nice day!
