Gorham "California" Sterling Silver Sauce or Cream Ladle
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
2479f   $70.00

Gorham
click for details
Gorham's "California" is a design that is surrounded by mystery. It is an identified pattern, but examples are very rarely found and what exists suggests it was limited to serving pieces.

Its style as well sets it apart as it is unlike anything else Gorham produced, or any other manufacturer for that matter, with the exception of Towle's "Spider" which has a very similar form.

It is in the Aesthetic mode and likely dates c. 1880. The rounded, swooping handle has a scalloped upper edge... Click for details

The pattern is rococo in manner, incorporating a variety of design elements asymmetrically arrayed.

This has four wide tines, the outer... Click for details

Gorham

Some years ago, "The Magazine Antiques" produced an article about Gorham's fabled 1880s "Narragansett" design silver. An opulent line, it featured a variety of sea forms reflecting (and reputedly molded directly from in some instance) sea flora and fauna found in Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay and nearby coastland.

That article spawned (pun intended) an intensified interest in this already enchanted, and immensely costly, pattern. It also prompted the assignment of the label... Click for details
