This aesthetic pattern is rarely found in flatware, and even rarer still to find in holloware. It is a stunning example of the quality of workmanship executed by the Gorham Company, currently on view in the exhibition, Gorham Silver Designing Brilliance 1850–1970, currently on view at the Rhode Island School of Design and coming to the Mint Museum in Charlotte in 2020.

Small dent to base; otherwise in good estate condition.
