$165.00 Price for the set of ten.

The number "18" coffee spoon was originally made in a set of twelve different motifs, as illustrated in the accompanying facsimile of Gorham's 1892 catalogue.

Originally identified as "A" to "L," this group encompasses ten of those pieces, omitting "D" and "H." The above image shows the ten arrayed corresponding with the catalogue page.

Each piece measures approximately 4 1/4" long, while the set weighs just under 3.4 T. oz.

They all have the same, stylized shell shape bowls with gold washes front and backs.

The motifs on the cast handles are varied, imaginative, and reflect Aesthetic influences. They include three figures, one an exotic bearded man, and two different cherubs. Other images are a cornucopia filled with fruit, three florals, and three scrolls.

They are without monograms or inscriptions and in mint estate condition, without any signs of use or damage.

Each one is stamped with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," and "18" on the backside.
