Description: Two interesting early 20th century American sterling silver hand forged Arts & Crafts silver spoons, by 2 of the leading silversmiths of the period. The first is by Old Newbury Crafters (ONC), in the panel antique pattern, with long narrow handle, fiddle handle and teardrop shaped bowl, with a pronounced rim around the back edge of the bowl. It is hallmarked "STERLING ONC", clearly struck, this mark was used before 1955. Hammer marks can be seen on the back of the bowl. The second is by Stone Sterling, founded in 1901 by Arthur J Stone, the "Dean of American Silversmiths". This spoon is slightly larger, it has an almost heart shaped bowl, and long elegant handle with pointed terminal. It is hallmarked with the STONE hammer mark, STERLING, and letter E, which denotes it was made by one of Stone's assistants, George C Erickson, between 1915 and 1932. Old Newbury Crafters was established in 1915, and still operating today, with 2 silversmiths, using traditional hand forging. The Boston Globe wrote "Paul Revere would have felt at home here", a great compliment. Arthur J Stone was an English trained silversmith, he emigrated to the USA in 1884, and started his own business in 1901. By 1906 he started to hire assistants, all assistants had their own unique mark, so can be identified today. Stone retired in 1937 at age 90, his work is found in many museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He is remembered as maintaining individual craftmanship in a time of mass production. His work is also depicted in the book "Collecting by Design, Silver & Metalwork of the Twentieth Century, Margo Grant Walsh Collection", page 30, where 5 pieces of his work are shown.
