Antique American silver ‘coin silver’ flatware pieces, generally dating before or so.
Photos courtesy Jon Crumiller A typical example of this dating method is shown in a painting by renowned English artist Francis Cotes The painting, from , depicts Sir William Earl Welby. He is a British landowner, baronet, and member of Parliament. He appears with his wife, Penelope. The portrait features a chess set on the table. Chess sets have been used as artistic props for centuries. Not only are they attractive and eye-catching.
Their supposed connection with intellect and high-society were desirable for this type of artwork. This same theme continues to the present day: Several recent movies starring fictional cerebral characters such as Sherlock Holmes and James Bond include pivotal scenes using chess as the central intellectual prop. Looking closely at the painting, it is apparent that the chess set is a later version of the Old English pattern.

After the great success with the Parker “51” came an era of decline for the fountain pen, the ballpoints sold in greater and greater numbers. Parker was eventually introducing the Jotter ballpen which sold very well, one reason being that it fitted as a set to the Parker “51” which was just about in everybodys pocket anyway.
Parker tried as they had before to capture the broad markets with cheaper pens: Parker “21”, Parker “41” and the Parker “45” introduced in , that was to become Parkers greatest seller in the low-priced area. But Kenneth Parker was not satisfied. The Parker company was always reluctant to appear as anything but a high-classed company that made high-classed pens, and since the Parker “61” never became the ultra-seller Parker had hoped, KP so called by his employees wanted to introduce yet another top-line fountain pen.
Another reason was that even if the Parker “45” and the Jotter sold very well, they also sold for very little money, leaving Parker with a small margin. Kenneth Parker characterized the company as being “in the early stages of rigor mortis unless something is done to recapture the higher-priced, gift-oriented business”. Kenneth Parker wanted the new pen to be aesthetic, innovative, expensive and a good writer.
The conformed grip allowed the user to adjust the nib to his hand ” He borrowed the filling system cartridge or converter from the Parker “45”. He borrowed the grid pattern from his cigarette case, made by a London silversmith. To make the pen in solid gold would have been too expensive so Parker decided on sterling a very pure silver.

Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.
