This liquor tag was produced by Gorham in 1910, stamped on the reverse with the company "lion, anchor, G" emblem, a date symbol for the year, the word "Sterling," and the letters "TGR," indicating this is special order (or sample) item.

It is an unusual piece in several regards.

First is the above noted fact that, as a special order, it is essentially one of a kind, or few at most. Second is its size, which is large for this sort of item, measuring 3" by 1 1/2", and weighing approximately .6 T. oz.

Third, it is etched "Kummel" in block lettering, when most such items designate more common alcoholic beverages such as whiskey, gin, port, or brandy for some.

Lastly, it has an open area in the lower half which is fitted with a sleeve on the backside, obviously intended to accommodate a further, and variable, identifier that could slide into the opening.

Retaining its original chain, it is in excellent condition, free of bends, nicks, or marring, and has a warm, even, finish.
