Imprinted with the "D" emblem that Durgin used on its holloware and the word "Gorham," along with "Sterling" and the model number "34A," this piece was made subsequent to 1905, the year that Gorham bought out Durgin, which continued as a separate operation under Gorham's mantle until 1931.

It is a 4" long, 2 1/2" wide, 1/2" high to the rim, 3 1/8" at the tallest, nearly 1.4 T. oz., nut or candy dish formed in the shape of a swan.

Very well crafted, the textured surface is appropriately feathered, while the finely detailed neck and head exhibit the natural gracefulness characteristic of this bird.

Variations of this appear online, some with raised wings, whereas this has a lower and broader, and perhaps more capacious, bowl.

An estate piece always held within one family, it is in like new condition. There are no bends or dents, nor polishing wear, and the finish is warmly bright.
