Vintage Gorham, Invitation pattern, 1940, silver plated service for 6 minus one individual butter spreader knife, no soup spoons, plus extras in the way of a dessert server, a master butter knife and sugar shell spoon, two table spoons, and a gravy ladle. Each place setting consists of a dinner or luncheon knife, dinner or luncheon fork, salad fork, and two teaspoons. Minus one butter spreader knife, as mentioned. 41 pieces all together. It is house in a Pacific Cloth lined box with drawer. The box has one broken pull on the drawer as shown. I can delete the box if you do not want or need it, and ship just the flatware, for 15.05 or less. Please let me know in the Message portion of the purchase Order, and I will refund the excess shipping cost when shipped.
Good, used condition all, no wear through of plating, was routinely used but not abused. If you look at the backs of the tines of the forks, you can see contact marks and tiny digs consistent with use, cleaning, and loose storage, see photo. Nothing remarkable, but shows that they were used for more than just the occasional holiday dinner. The dessert server has a little mark on the handle as shown that looks to be contact with an acidic food left to sit, left a little shadow.
All have been freshly hand polished. Nice addition to an existing set, or a base from which to add onto. This was a very popular pattern and more pieces are not difficult to find online, to fill out. The box will hold a service for 12.
Due to size, once bubble wrapped and boxed, please note that the package will be oversized according to post office limits on box size, and shipping cost, while actual cost only, will rise sharply for destinations far West or South of my Northeast location, so please check shipping costs on this page before deciding to buy.
