$32.00 Price per piece, two available.

Issued early in the 20th century, Gorham's "Poppy" was an expressive iteration of this popular floral motif.

The design incorporates numerous blossoms and buds along with trailing leaves on both sides of the handle and the heel reverse.

This example is a 5 3/4" long, .8 T. oz., grapefruit or citrus spoon. It has a lengthy, narrow, deep, bowl with a flange rim and pointed tip, which is finished in a bright gold wash front and back.

The handle has a delicate script "CLM" monogram on the front.

In excellent condition, pattern details remain clear and well-defined. The bowl is free of dents or bends, but shows some polishing loss of the gold finish.

Marks are Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," "Pat. 1902," and the name of the retailer, "S. Kind & Sons," Philadelphia.
