$360.00 Price for the set of six.

Full size dinner forks measuring 7 5/8" long each, and weighing a hefty 12.1 T. oz. the group, these six matched pieces are marked with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem and "Sterling" on the handle reverses, and "Copyrighted" on the handle edges.

The pattern, "Medici" aka "Old Medici," dates from 1880. It is a complex design that features imagery and figures representational of the Italian Renaissance. In this instance the primary subject is a young man in festooned garb with a sword hanging from his waistband and carrying a column-like item.

Each piece is monogrammed with a feathered, leaf script, "P" on the backside.

These are in remarkably fine condition. The low relief, complexly textured, nature of this pattern is subject to polishing wear, particularly on the higher spots, and none of that is evident on these. They appear to be scarcely used, retaining all their original detail. The tines are all even, straight, and pointed, and the finishes show rich patinas.
