Gorham

Patented in "1861," and so marked on this 8 1/4" long, weighty at nearly 2.3 T. oz., table or serving spoon, Gorham's "Grecian" had a lengthy production run.

That is evident on this piece which is marked "Sterling," indicating it was made after 1868 when Gorham adopted this standard over coin silver.

"Grecian" place pieces do not seem to appear as frequently as serving items, and this particular piece is surprisingly scarce.

It is in very fine condition. Polishing wear is minimal,... Click for details
