$200.00 Price for the set of eight.

This set of eight, matched, teaspoons in Gorham's "Old Medici" are early items, stamped with a "lion, anchor, G," "Sterling," and the word "Copyrighted."

Each one measures 5 11/16" long. They are hefty, with the group weighing 7.5 T. oz.

"Old Medici" is an intricate, figured design, the main one of which on these is a woman holding a bucket. There is also a satyr set midway on the handle.

The backsides have an "N" monogram offered in a manner that imitates an Eastern character. This further locates the set to their 1880 patent date, which was a period when there was a great deal of fascination with exotic themes, expressed in all sorts of ways such as these monograms.

The condition is excellent. Pattern detail remains very well-defined. The bowls remain well-shaped, free of tip wear, dents, dings, or burrs.
