A Moorish pattern, Gorham's "Hindostanee" draws from the same design impulse as Tiffany's "Persian" and Whiting's "Arabesque" of the same 1870s period.

This example is an 8 3/4" long, weighty at 2.7 T. oz., possibly vegetable, serving fork.

The serving area has three, wide, tapered tines that are joined to a high, rippled heel area with scalloped edges. The tines are engraved in a palmetto and anthemion motif that evokes the immediate past, 1860s, Egyptian or Greek Revival periods

This item is a dramatically-scaled, solid silver, ice cream knife or slice. It measures 10 5/8" long and weighs 3.1 T. oz.

The pattern is Gorham's "Colonial," the main feature of which is striping that runs up about two-thirds the length 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, which in turn implies an Aesthetic influence, which would be consistent... Click for details
