This American sterling mug by Gorham is most striking. In a band extending all around is a detailed depiction of classical figures engaged in dance. The band is 1.5 inches wide and does not repeat itself. In the middle is an ornate cartouche which has never been used. Above the cartouche near the top of the mug is engraved the name A. Herzog. The first picture shows the mug in its entirety. Most of the remaining pictures are devoted to the figures and decorations on the band. Gorham also used this same motif on a sterling napkin ring. The scene is most impressive and displays great detail. The mug is 3.5 inches tall and 3 inches across the opening. The diameter of the base is 2.75 inches, so the mug tapers slightly outward from bottom to top. It weighs a most impressive 8 ounces on a postal scale. One of the pictures shows the marks on the bottom. We find the word sterling, the three standard marks for Gorham (lion, anchor, G), the pattern number 3965, and the date symbol. The latter is somewhat smeared but appears to be the symbol for 1889. I can see no dents or imperfections.
