length 9 1/8 inches, weight 4.75 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.

In all probability, this item is not terribly old. Towle remanufactured many pieces of this pattern in the mid 1980's, in an attempt to recapture some of their former glory. So though it's entirely legit, we can't represent this as antique. However, as with Gorham's later (also 1980's) production of historic patterns, the utmost care has been taken and no apologies need be made for the quality of this... Click for details

height 3; diameter 4 inches, weight 7.11 Troy ounces, excellent original condition, monogrammed as shown in second enlargement. A great design which makes use of both applied and repoussé'd decoration.

These come and go, but I don't think we've ever owned one where the chasing is so crisp and the original oxidation hasn't been at least partially removed by some overzealous owner.
