Gorham's "Grecian" was an early line pattern in the history of that company, patented in 1861, as indicated by the stamp on the reverse of this 8 5/8" long, approximately 1.9 T. oz., berry spoon.

Other marks include a "lion, anchor, G," and the name of the retailer, Baltimore's "Geo. Webb & Co."

The design incorporates a large, fan-like, anthemion end attached to a tubular handle. The backside of the anthemion is plain with a leafy border, and never monogrammed.

The bowl is melon form with flange edges, a ribbed interior, and a pointed and upraised tip.

It is in good condition, showing no polishing wear and having a warm finish. There are light overall scratches consistent with age, and one nick near the hallmark. The bowl is free of dents, or bends, but the left flange in particular shows some unevenness and scuffing.
