Old Friends

Gorham
click for details
A large item measuring 8 1/2" long and weighing a robust 3.1 T. oz., this serving piece is variously identified as a pea, vegetable, or ice spoon. The determinative characteristic of this form is a generously-sized, reticulated bowl, and indeed that is the case with this example in Gorham's "Imperial Chrysanthemum." The piercing in this instance is a leaf design.

The late 19th century pattern is expressive, portraying an abundance of chrysanthemum blossoms and leaves arrayed on both front... Click for details

This example is a 6 1/8" long, weighty, 1.2 T. oz., individual salad fork. An early piece, it is stamped with the Durgin "D" on the reverse, along with the word "Sterling."

Gorham

Patented in "1861," and so marked on this 8 1/4" long, weighty at nearly 2.3 T. oz., table or serving spoon, Gorham's "Grecian" had a lengthy production run.

That is evident on this piece which is marked "Sterling," indicating it was made after 1868 when Gorham adopted this standard over coin silver.

"Grecian" place pieces do not seem to appear as frequently as serving items, and this particular piece is surprisingly scarce.

It is in very fine condition. Polishing wear is minimal,... Click for details
