click for more pictures for item 2109nr
An early piece, this asparagus server carries the old Gorham "lion, anchor, G" mark, along with the words "Sterling" and "Pat. 1895."
Solid silver, it measures 8 3/4" long and weighs approximately 3.7 T. oz. The reticulated, five tine, blade end is roughly 3 3/8" square, and has a raised, scalloped shoulder where it joins the handle.
The piece is without a monogram or removal and in very fine condition. There is no visible polishing wear and the finish is lustrous. The serving end is free of bends, breaks, burrs or nicks, and apart from light surface scratches consistent with age, is free of signs of use.
