Gorham Colonial Solid Sterling Ice Cream Knife
click for details
What design elements prompted Gorham to adopt the name "Colonial" for this 1885 design is something of a mystery because it does not follow after any conventional colonial motif.

The main feature of the pattern is striping that runs up about two-thirds of the handle. This is more subtle than it appears, as the surface alternates between convex and concave and suggests banding, perhaps of a naturalistic material such as bamboo. This in turn implies an Aesthetic influence, which would be... Click for details
