Quality Tiffany

Tiffany's "Olympian" is a legendary pattern among 19th century flatware. Patented in 1878, and so marked on the backside, it quickly became a flagship line for the company, and was never really supplanted by subsequent offerings.

Original Gorham

An early 20th century design, Gorham's "Old French was a well-received pattern that remains popular today. The simplicity of the lined border, slightly bulbous design provided a visual respite to the flourish of Art Nouveau style dominant in the period, as well as the congestion of some immediately preceding-in-time Victorian forms.

This example is a 6 3/4" long fruit knife. It is an original item, factory made and original issue.

Dating from 1870, "Louis XIV" was an early line pattern in Gorham's stable of designs. Knowles produced a near match in its "Emperor" pattern, and George Sharp also offered a third, unnamed kindred design, all indicating this motif had as much appeal in its time as it still exhibits today.

The handle tip is an anthemion form with a shield reserve which in this case has an embellished, Old English "R" monogram. The area below this has raised, line scrolling set against a stippled background.... Click for details
