Old Gorham "Buttercup" Sterling Silver Sugar & Bon Bon
spoon SOLD, $ 55 bon bon
This sterling silver sugar spoon and bon bon or nut spoon in Gorham's "Buttercup" are both old examples and without a monogram or removal. They have the flanged rims and decorated shoulders that are found only on early examples of the pattern, and the marks are lion, anchor, G, and "Sterling," again indicative of age. The sugar spoon measures 6" long and weighs 1.0 T. oz., while the attractively reticulated bon bon length is 4 5/8" and weight just over .7 T. oz. Both pieces are in mint condition, retain sharp clear detail, and have fine finishes.
