One of Gorham's earliest full line patterns, patented in 1868 as stamped in the reverse of this 6 1/4" long, just over .6 T. oz., sugar spoon, "Ivy" has a tubular stem and broad, convex handle end that features a delicate portraiture of ivy leaves and berries set against a stippled ground.

Marks also include the company's "lion, anchor, G" emblem and the word "Sterling."

This has an oval-shaped bowl with notched, flanged, shoulders, and a fluted or ribbed interior that overall is reminiscent of a melon. It retains very faint traces of what was once an original gold wash.

The reverse is plain save for the marks.

In excellent estate condition and never monogrammed, this retains clear pattern detail, is free of dents or bends in the bowl, and shows a warm, even, surface.
