Antique Victorian Gorham Sterling Silver Teaspoon Versaille Pattern
First produced in 1888, may I offer from Gorham in the Versailles pattern, a teaspoon featuring an angel, cupid putti with a lyre at the top. There are traces of a monogram at the back of the spoon but it has mostly worn off.
Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver
Hallmarks: Gorham hallmarks, STERLING, Copyrighted
Size: Length of the spoon is 5-7/8"; width at the bowl is 1-1/4".
Weight: 30 grams
final Comments: Much better looking in person than in my photos.
FINAL COMMENTS: 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.
