EX9394 Important Gorham Sterling Punch Ladle Date letter 1895
A massive Gorham antique sterling silver punch ladle with applied grapes, vines, a cherub and Bacchus face complete with orange peel finish. Monogrammed on the reverse and with a gold washed bowl. There is a small cluster of leaves on the back of the handle acting as a stopper button to prevent the ladle from sliding forward. The date letter on the reverse is the half moon for 1895. Monogrammed on the back of the handle. A perfect example of over the top gilded age extravagance.
