Gorham Small Sterling Beaker with Gold Interior
Larger than a shot measure and smaller than a julep cup, but similar in design to each of these forms, this small beaker was made by Gorham. It stands 2 5/8" high, has top and bottom diameters of 2 1/4" and 1 3/4" respectively, and weighs just under 1.7 T. oz. In addition to the Gorham hallmark and the word Sterling it is stamped with the date symbol for 1911 and the number 4081 in a rectangle followed by the letter A. The rectangle indicates this was a prototype or special order item, while the A indicates it was produced in New York City rather than Gorham's main facility in Providence, Rhode Island. It is plain, with an applied double rim and a gold washed interior, and it is in mint condition.
