Gorham Medallion Small Sterling Sugar Sifter
Measuring 6" long and of good weight, 1.4 T. oz., this sterling silver sugar sifter is the smaller of two sizes that Gorham made in its 1860's Medallion line. It has a 2" round bowl with a scalloped edge and coffered sides, and both the front and back sides retain a goodly portion of their original gold wash. The classical female figure remains sharply defined and crisp, having been spared polishing wear. The backside is plain and absent a monogram or removal. In all aspects, the piece is in excellent condition. Marks are lion, anchor, G, Sterling, and "Patent 1864."
