Today we are delighted to offer for sale beautiful Buttercup large berry spoon by Gorham!
The Buttercup pattern is a beautiful ornate style, with elegant scrollwork and multiple dainty flowers accenting the handles of the sterling serving pieces in the line. First produced in 1899, its timeless style has made it a popular choice through the decades since.
This lovely piece features a sturdy handle covered in ornate flower and scroll detail, leading down to a generously sized oval-shaped bowl. Some scroll work goes around the top of the bowl, which has a gold vermeil patina. It is marked on the back with Gorham’s makers’ marks (a lion, anchor, and letter G), along with the words “Sterling” and “Patent 1900”. The handle is monogramed “LHB”. Check our other listings for the matching smaller berry spoon!
Spoon presents beautifully and in very good condition, with minor wear, tarnish and patina commensurate with age and light use. Please review all photos. This charming Buttercup piece would make an impressive and elegant addition to any fine sterling collection. Fresh to the market!
