Beautiful Gorham sterling silver tablespoon in the famous Versailles, a design of the well-known U.S. manufacturer, Gorham, and premier designer Antoine Heller, a French designer originally hired by Tiffany which recognized his genius, and then hired away by Gorham. This pattern is marked on the back of the spoon bowl with Gorham's hallmarks, Sterling, and 1888, date of introduction of this pattern. Versailles was one of Gorham's most popular and enduring patterns. The piece is in original condition and has not been altered, either removing monograms or machine buffing, etc. There is a monogram on the back of the handle, an elaborate one with intertwining script letters.
