London 1778, height 4 3/4; diameter 3 1/4 inches, weight 3.67 Troy ounces, a few very minor dents which won't show up in photos but fine overall condition (there's a bit of distress to the tip-- see fourth photo-- greatly enlarged here), monogrammed as shown.
The perfect gift for your wine loving friend, who will appreciate that the muslin ring remains present, when the time comes to decant that special bottle of port...
length 5 3/8 inches, excellent condition, no monogram, please see second photo for marks. Why a pair? One for chocolate sauce, the other for a darker chocolate sauce, of course.
length just shy of 4 1/8 inches, excellent condition, no monogram.
length 6 1/2 inches, excellent condition, no monogram.
length 4 1/8 inches, excellent condition, no monogram.
length 8 1/2 inches, weight 6.4 Troy ounces, no monogram, with Jensen trademark circa 1940, "84", and Swedish import marks, (see third enlargement).
Over the years, we've bought and sold many pieces of Blossom. This one is in exemplary condition, with gentle hammer marks on spoon bowl and fork tines; each petal of the blossom with full detail.
height 1 3/4; diameter of base 2 1/4 inches, weight 3.28 Troy ounces, excellent condition, discreetly monogrammed on the underside as shown in photos three and four.
These are perfectly plumb, but wide angle distortion has caused one to look a bit akilter, and for this we must apologize, dear reader.
height 3 1/8; top diameter 5 inches, weight 6.14 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition.
Similar in design and construction to its larger cousin known as the "Louvre Bowl," (see Drucker, p. 188) because it is in the permanent collection of that institution.
model B1925, probably a Codman design, 3 by 2 3/8 inches, heavy, finely cast and in untouched original condition. A museum quality object.
height 6 inches, widest section of base 5 1/8 inches, superb color and condition, monogram "GVL" (?) script obverse. We've bought and sold many Gorham novelty items, but this is certainly among the best of its class...
height and diameter both 1.5 inches, a few minor dents which don't show up well in the photographs but good overall condition, no monogram, marked as one may suspect with the Gorham trademark, sterling, and B4186.
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...
with engraved faintly gilt blade, the handle circular in section, length 9 1/8 inches, no monogram, excellent condition.
length 4 7/8", excellent condition, monogrammed "L.S.K. / Sept 15 on '91" on reverse of bowl, weight .58 oz. Troy.
This is an especially fine example of Gorham's casting work. The other items pictured above are sold.
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.
length five inches, excellent condition, monogrammed "MC" script reverse of bowl, weight .68 oz Troy. Items with this mark would appear to be scarce.
length 5 3/4 inches, weight 1.07 Troy ounces, no monogram, excellent condition, retailed by Harris and Shafer. The high-relief rendering of Capitol building in bowl lends this spoon an added sculptural quality.
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".
