$395.00 Price for the set of twelve.

This full set of twelve identical spoons all measure 5 3/4" long and are relatively heavy, with the group weighing 11.0 T. oz., and have the same, Old English "M.F.P." monograms on the reverses.

They are unusual form with narrow, 1 7/8" long by 15/16" at the widest, deep at 3/8", bowls with oval tips and gold finishes both front and back sides.

They are clearly distinct from typical citrus or orange spoons but are likely to be used for eating fruit.

The pattern is Gorham's "St. Cloud," which is one of the (many) stand out motifs generated by renowned designer Antoine Heller.

The entire set is in superb estate condition. Pattern detail remains clear and well-defined, free of polishing wear. The finishes are bright and even. The bowls are without dents, nicks, or burrs, and the only loss of the gold gilt is on the backside heels where the pieces rest.

Marks are Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat. 1885."
