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.

"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
