Gorham "Beaded" Coin Silver Ice Cream Server
click for more pictures for item 3163f

Marked "Patent 1861," "Beaded" is one of Gorham's earliest line patterns. It was produced for a considerable period of time and made in both coin and sterling silver. This example is marked "Coin," so dates no later than 1868, the year Gorham went to sterling.

It is a large, 9 1/4" long, approximately 2.5 T. oz. ice cream server.

It has an oval blade with two ribs in the interior, notched shoulders, a beveled edge, and a gold washed upper surface. This is shallowly concave and more of a spade than a spoon.

There is a feathered script "SBH" monogram on the handle front.

The condition is exceptionally fine estate. There is no polishing wear, the gold wash remains intact, the engraving is crisp, and the finish is lustrous.
