GORHAM 'OLD BARONIAL' TABLE SPOON
Gorham introduced 'Old Baronial' in 1998, during the tenure of William Codman as chief of design at Gorham. Codman's background in restoration of medieval objects is evident in this pattern which invokes the revival of the Gothic period in Baronial Europe – in this case, the blending of a lion's head with foliate, scroll and floral motifs. The spoon is in very fine condition with no problems whatever, a touch over 8.5 in. long and it weighs 80 grams. The handle has a monogram of LR on the front; the reverse has the Gorham logo, 'Sterling,' 'Pat. 1898,' and the letter 'H' which may indicate it's the heavy version of the pattern.
