$60.00 August & March on Reserve

"Pat. Mar. 20. 1894," as stamped on the backside of this piece, along with a "lion, anchor, G" emblem and "Sterling," Gorham's "Zodiac" series proved popular from its introduction onward.

Teaspoons are readily found, but children's pieces such as this 5 3/4" long, weighty at 1.0 T. oz., youth fork are less common.

This example is "August" and "Virgo," noting that the sign and month in this line do not necessarily correlate exactly with contemporary conventions.

It features a mermaid figure resting on the sea, a shell, month name, and poppy flowers on the heel area front.

Never monogrammed or inscribed, it remains in superb condition, free of polishing wear and with a bright finish. The four tines are straight, pointed, even, and free of burrs or nicks.

Please note: "March," "May," and "September" matching forks available, along with a "July" baby fork, and "April," "June," and "September" coffee or demitasse spoons. Please inquire.
