Gorham for Tiffany

Gorham's "Medallion" was the pattern of choice offered by mid 1860's Tiffany & Co. when it was only a retailer and not a manufacturer.

The figure is a youthful helmeted male warrior. The blunt end bowl has a ribbed interior and notched and slightly flanged shoulders. The bowl evidences very scant traces... Click for details

1627f   $535.00

Whiting Cast
click for details
Whiting produced a series of floral serving pieces in the late 19th that are little documented, but likely intended to compete with Gorham's impressive "H" series.

The portraiture on this is a "Rose" or specifically a "Cabbage Rose."

Whiting's items have cast handles and applied serving ends, and that is the case with this 8 3/4" long, massive weight, nearly 5.4 T. oz., spoon. Casting enables an end product that has far more depth than typical die struck items, and the benefits of... Click for details
