Dating to some of the earliest years of the Gorham establishment, these six spoons are marked "Gorham & Webster," a partnership that dated 1831-37.

Each one measures 7 1/2" long, which is an unusual size by contemporary convention in that it is lengthier than a dessert spoon but not quite as long as a tablespoon. In its time, when large scale was favored, it was likely a standard place piece.

They have a substantial feel, although each one is marginally less than 1.0 T. oz., with the gr...

This large scale, 8 7/8" long, very heavy 4.5 T. oz., possibly vegetable, fish, or salad serving fork is an early example with decorated shoulders in contrast to plain shoulde...
