Introduced in 1861, and initially made to a coin silver standard then continued in production beyond the conversion to sterling in 1868, Gorham's Grecian features a solid tubular stem capped with an elaborated anthemion or palmette.

This 6 1/2" long, approximately 1.6 T. oz., ladle dates post 1868, as it is marked "Sterling," along with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Patent 1861," and the name of the retailer, Rochester, New York's "Sunderlin & Weaver."

For sauce or cream, it has a helmet-shaped bowl with flanged shoulders, and is identical in form to the larger gravy ladle, but is less readily found than that piece.

The backside is engraved "Hattie" in script.

In superb condition, this shows no wear or damage. Pattern detail remains well-defined, the bowl is free of dents or bends, and the finish is bright.
