A popular form during most of the second half of the 19th century, this c. 1870 sterling silver olive server has a spoon on one end and a fork on the other. It measures 9 5/8" long and weighs 1.0 T. oz. Made by Gorham, and stamped with that company's lion, anchor, G hallmark, as well as "Sterling," it also carries the name of the retailer, Boston's "Bigelow, Kennard & Co." It has a twisted stem with a shield like detail toward the fork end. This is monogrammed "S" in Old English lettering. The bowl has dart and circle piercings, a ribbed interior, flanged shoulders, and retains most of its original gold wash on the front and back sides. The fork end also has a gold wash. It is in excellent condition, having no damage and showing only light polishing wear consistent with age.
