This Gorham beverage/cocktail server/pitcher is from the great mid century modern designer on Gorham's staff, Donald H. Colflesh. This pitcher is made in silverplate with a bold black plastic serpentine handle. This beverage server is illustrated in the MODERNISM IN AMERICAN SILVER catalog/book by Jewel Stern and was part of the accompanying exhibition that traveled to several museums in the United States. The exhibition started at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery. The illustration appears on page 288 of this book.
The pitcher is faintly marked with the Gorham script logo and stands approximately 11 1/4" tall. It is about 3" in diameter and there is an ice catcher lip inside at the spout, making this a stunning martini pitcher. The Colflesh beverage server was designed in 1959.
