Gorham "Coligni" Figural Sterling Teaspoon
Produced by Gorham's renowned Antoine Heller, Coligni stands alongside such other commanding figural patterns as Versailles, Fontainebleau, Mythologique, and Old Medici offered by that firm and designer in the late 19th century. Of all those designs, it may be the one with a look most likely to have gone toe-to-toe with Tiffany's Olympian of the same period. This 6" long, heavy, just over 1.0 T. oz., teaspoon features two draped female figures carrying baskets filled with flowers and/or fruit, all set against an intricate background. There is no monogram or removal and the condition is outstanding. Marks are lion, anchor, G, and Sterling.
