Gorham Corinthian Sterling Silver Master Butter Knife
At 8" long, this is a large master butter knife. The pattern is Gorham's early 1870's "Corinthian." This is a handsome example, with fine detailing, including an engraved blade. There is an elegant, period monogram (EK?). The condition is excellent. The blade is even, and free of bends, nicks, or burrs. The finish is nicely patinated. Marks are lion, anchor, G, Sterling, Pat. 71, and the name of the retailer. This is rubbed, but appears to be Robbxxxx.
