A superb Gorham antique satin finished sterling and gold washed mixed metals fruit bowl with Japanese influenced feet. The interior only decorated with the finest applied cast work imaginable including a three dimensional salamander, birds and plants with small applied globules of silver and copper "sand". The gold washed surface has a slight satin finish and remains in remarkably good crisp condition.
Date letter for 1880. Also a special heart mark that we have seen on other special pieces of Gorham.
