This listing is for a fabulous vintage sterling silver serving spoon (also called tablespoons) made by Gorham (of Providence, RI). The spoon is in the popular Strasbourg pattern, patented in 1897. This pattern is a classic, very detailed with ornate feathers, swirls, flourishes, embossing on front and back. The spoon measures 8 1/2″ and weighs a total of 54 grams. Marked on the back “STERLING lion anchor G PAT 1897.” These are desirable pieces in a highly collectible pattern by a quality maker. Spoon is in very good vintage condition, with wear, scuffing, tarnishing, and patina commensurate with age and use. What a wonderful hostess, wedding or gift for the holidays! Fresh to the market!
