Antique Gorham Sterling Silver Dessert Fork in Mythologique Pattern - Centaur and Man

Dating to 1894 may I offer this single silver dessert fork in the Mythologique pattern by Gorham. The design is of a man standing in front a centaur. There is a monogram on the reverse in a fine script that I believe is DMC.

Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The image is not crisp as this piece has been used and polished quite a bit. The patina to the silver is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos, the main polish I leave to the new owner. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver.

Metal Content: Sterling Silver with Hallmarks or 925/1000 and the Gorham figural marks.

Size: Length on a straight line is 7-1/8"; width at the tines is 1" at the widest section.

Weight: Hefty at 62 grams.

Final Comments: I know it's not as crisp as some people would like but the design is so hard to find that I couldn't bear to let it be melted. I have priced this rock bottom and hope to find a home quickly.


NOTE: 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.
