A Moorish or broadly Renaissance Revival pattern, Gorham's "Hindostanee" was issued in 1878.

This example, an 8 1/2" long, 1.8 T. oz., berry or other serving spoon, is an early example of the line, marked "Pat. Appl. For," along with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem and "Sterling."

The finely rendered design incorporates a series of repetitive scrolls and palmettes on a slightly upturned, rounded end, handle, and includes a shield reserve, which in this instance has never been monogrammed.

The bowl is an early form, with a coffered and embossed heel and a pointed tip. It has a satin matte finish both sides, with a deep, bronze-like, gold wash on the interior. This is intricately engraved in a design that is compatible with the basic pattern.

In mint condition, this appears little, if ever, used. There is no evident wear whatsoever.
