Large Gorham Sterling 1872 Wine Goblet
This sterling silver goblet stands 5 7/8" high, has a top diameter of 3 1/8", sits on a pedestaled base 3" across, and weighs a substantial 6.7 T. oz. It was made by Gorham and is stamped with that company's lion, anchor, G, along with the word Sterling, the item number 556, and the date letter "E" for 1872. It has a plain body save for a fancy feathered script "TN" monogram. The base has a rosette and tear drop applied band, while the interior of the bowl has a pale gold wash. It is in excellent condition, free of dings, dents or bends. The base sits evenly and the finish is appealing.
