Gorham - Chantilly Pattern - Salad Set with Sterling Silver Handles - Monogram S
Production started in 1960 on the Chantilly pattern from Gorham. On offer now is a vintage salad set with sterling silver handles (monogram S to the front) and wood bottoms, olive wood I believe. In terrific condition, all that's needed now is a light bath and a little bit of olive oil added to the wood for seasoning.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver
Hallmarks: STERLING HANDLE along the side of each top. Also, on both pieces, engraved makers marks indicating that the set was custom made. These marks read as follows "140 So3Z 8235 2467 6350."
Size: Length of each piece is 10-3/4" approx. Width at the tines is 1-1/8"; at the spoon, 2".
FINAL COMMENTS: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items as possible. When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
