$18.00 Price per piece, three available.

Classified as Egyptian Revival in style in a "Silver Magazine" article some years ago, "Ivy" is one of Gorham's earliest line patterns. Dating from 1865, it stands alongside "Lotus," "Grecian," and "Lily" aka "No. 88," as one of the most well-received designs of the period.

This example is a 5 3/16" long, just under .5 T. oz., five o'clock coffee spoon.

This is a particularly elegant item, with a relatively large bowl that is finished in a bright gold wash front and back sides.

The reverse of the arched handle is engraved "A.E.T." in script, and stamped with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Pat. 68," and "Sterling."

It is in immaculate estate condition. There is no polishing wear, the finish is warm and bright, and the bowl is without dents, nicks, or burrs.
