click for more pictures for item 2537f
An early 20th century pattern, "Norfolk" aka "Villa Norfolk" stands in contrast to the exuberance of so much 19th century design. A simple, double-lined, multi-scroll motif, it is clean, direct, and understated in manner.
This example is a 9 5/8" long, nearly 2.7 T. oz., cake saw. It has a solid, flat handle, and all-silver blade. The blade has a saw-tooth upper edge, which is characteristic of this item.
Without a monogram or removal, this is in exceptionally fine condition. There is no polishing wear, and the finish is bright and even. The blade remains flat and smooth, free of bends, burrs, or nicks.
Marks are the Gorham "lion, anchor, G" emblem, and the words "Sterling" and "Pat. 1903."
