GORHAM 'CLEMATIS' STERLING SERVING SPOON
The pleasing use of acid etching to define the floral surface of 'Clematis' (introduced in 1885) combines with delicate engraving of leaves and vine to give new life to a standard Old English pattern. The bowl is elongated with a suggestion of honeysuckle in the repousse treatment, and terminates in a soft point. It might have been used for pudding, but certainly shouldn't be limited to that! There are remains of gold wash in the bowl. Length is 9.25 in., the weight is 57 g., and there is a small script monogram 'Fordham.' Marked with Gorham logo and 'Sterling.' The condition is very good, exhibiting no damage other than age.
