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
