length 13 1/2 inches, weight 5 oz Troy, no monogram. Concerning condition, the handle is ever so slightly off vertical and there are some very minor dents in bowl (please see fourth photo). Both of these issues are difficult for my eye to detect, so I do not feel that they need to be addressed. The bust looks pretty much the way it did when this item left the factory in Providence some hundred forty odd years ago. Last but not least, feel free to use Google Product Search© and compare ...

length 6 inches, monogrammed reverse "MRC / KC" in period script. There is a tiny drop of hard solder to the left of the word "PENINSULAM," (please see fourth photo) done we suspect in the making, but aside from this the condition is excellent.

exceptionally colourful, gilt bowl, no monogram, excellent condition save for one small portion of missing blue inlay (see third photo). I hesitate to call this damage. Gorham had significant problems with the enameling process and it may be a slight "second".

Let's take a moment to reflect upon why a dealer, or at least Yours Truly, chooses to add an item to inventory.

Over the years, we've handled many many pieces of Martelé, and if you dear reader will forgive me for a bit of crudeness, most of them are "trashed." Specifically, the detail is severely worn away, leaving the beauty of the overall design still appreciable but no longer intact.

length 5 3/8 inches, excellent condition, gilt bowl, no monogram, retailed by Hart Brothers. Unlike many of its alleged peers, this one is not "custom made" or "hand crafted" but an original product of Gorham some hundred and twenty-five years old.
