Antique Gorham Versaille Sterling Silver Teaspoons w/Monogram B - Cupid Playing Lyre - Up to 9 Available
May I offer:
Dating to 1894 may I offer this single silver teaspoon in the Versaille pattern by Gorham. The design is of Cupid playing a lyre. There is a monogram initial on the reverse in an old world script - the letter B.
Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The image is quite crisp for its age! 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 of Copyrighted, Gorham figural hallmarks, Sterling.
Size: Length on a straight line is 6"; width at the bowl is 1-1/4" at the widest section.
Weight: 31 grams each approx - about $28 silver value (8/20/20)
Final Comments: Wonderful! And there's 9 available in total!
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.
