Antique Gorham Sterling Zodiac Aries Estate Spoon - March
What a great antique Victorian era zodiac spoon! It is made of sterling silver and reads ARIES - MARCH, and has a ram and the symbol for the zodiac sign of ARIES. The bowl has a flower design at the end towards the handle. I think it might be a Chinese lantern abutilon flower, but can't say for sure. What really makes this spoon special is that it was given as a Christmas gift over a century ago and the back of the handle is engraved W.P.E. XMAS '94 FROM MOTHER. The spoon is a teaspoon size and measures about 5 3/4" long by 1 1/4" across the bowl. The weight is about 38.4 grams. Marked STERLING, and has makers marks of lion, anchor and fancy initial for Gorham and is also marked PAT. MAR. 20 1894. Good antique condition with light age wear. The sterling has an uneven spotty patina (tarnish) as seen. Could be polished if desired. Great find for the March birthday person or astrology collector! You will love it!!!
