click for more pictures for item 2158f
Measuring 4 3/4" long and weighing just over .6 T. oz., this bon bon, also referenced as a nut or confection spoon, was made by Gorham.
The pattern is "Imperial Chrysanthemum," which is a highly detailed floral design tending toward the Art Nouveau in style.
This is a particularly fine example. It has a delicate script "P" monogram on the front. There is no evident polishing wear and the bowl remains well-shaped and retains most of its original gold wash finish.
Marks are Gorham's "lion, anchor, G," "Sterling," and "Pat. 1894."
