$75.00

An early line pattern first issued in 1861 to a coin silver standard, "Cottage" continued in production for many years, through Gorham's transition to sterling in 1868.

This 8 3/4" long, just over 1.8 T. oz., berry or other serving spoon is marked "Sterling," indicating it dates 1868 or later. Other marks include the company's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Patent 1861," and the rarely found identifier, "Gorham Mfg. Co."

It has a 3 1/2" by 2 1/8", particular to Gorham, stylized shell form bowl with a ribbed and gold washed interior.

The handle is engraved with an embellished Old English "T" monogram.

In excellent condition, the only sign of use is some loss of the gold finish in the bowl, which is otherwise free of dents, bends, or burrs. The overall finish is bright and even.
