Antique Victorian Chantilly Countess Sterling Silver Sugar Bowl with Lid by Gorham 1003/1 (8) No Monogram
Dating to the late 1890s and with NO monogram on either side, may I offer this sterling sugar bowl with lid (finial top) in the Chantilly Countess pattern. The double-side design is floral with a lot of scrollwork and is impeccably detailed. Made by Gorham.
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, 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
Hallmarks: Gorham (Gorham Hallmarks) Sterling 1003/1 (8) along with scratched in jewelers marks of 235/28

Final Comments: Of this set, I have the sugar bowl you see here as well as the creamer and the Teapot. If you are looking for replacement pieces - these are the beauties to get - they are perfect, perfect, perfect!
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.
Buy with Confidence. Robins Nest Midwest has the highest rating a shop can attain on RL.
