$260.00 Price for the set of six.

Replete with imagery, "Florentine" aka "Florenz," is one of the most intricate designs Gorham produced in the early 20th century.

Incorporating Renaissance imagery, it features a bearded figure at the handle terminus, a pedestal urn laden with fruit midway up, and an array of other fruit and acanthus leaf elements overall, all rendered in high relief.

This offering is a set of six, matching, 5 1/2" long, ice cream spoons. A heavy line, these weigh 7.0 T. oz. the group.

The bowls are broad, shallow, have flange shoulders, and are finished in a gold wash on both sides.

The handle fronts are lightly inscribed with a cursive monogram that appears to be "VPL."

Older estate items, these are marked with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat. 1901."

In excellent condition, the only evidence of use is some loss of the gold on the bowls. Pattern details remain clear and well-defined and the finishes are bright.

Please note, six fish forks and six solid silver fish knives from this same set are also available. Please inquire.
