Gorham
click for details
Dating c. 1860, "Bust" is one of those patterns that helped created what might be called Gorham's first golden age of design.

The defining feature of the line is a cast, in most instances female, "bust" that surmounts the slender, square handle.

A product of the Classical Revival movement of the period, the figure sits atop a pedestal base, much as she might be presented in a museum or salon, or in a wall niche in an athenaeum.

This piece is a 5 7/8" long, not quite 1.0 T. oz., coin... Click for details

Elegant on several counts, this 7" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon traces to Philadelphia. It is stamped "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for that City's carriage trade firm, but was likely made by one of several major local manufacturers.

Its features bespeak its origins, and quite impressively so. It has a twisted stem in the central portion of the handle, suggesting a date from the mid 1860s when this detail was popular.
