Lot 1137 Details

Description
Ninety-Three Pieces of Gorham "Gold Tip" Sterling Silver Flatware, the pattern designed in 1952 by James Russell Price (1907-1974), Providence, Rhode Island, comprising ten seven-piece place settings (one iced tea spoon lacking) with an additional thirteen place pieces and eleven serving pieces, no monograms, 99.99 total t. oz. (weighable silver). Detailed listing of pieces available on request. Gorham's stylish modernist "Gold" series was distinguished by the addition of eighteen-karat gold accents: here, in the "Tip" version, the small horizontal rod on the tip of the handle. Also available were "Cipher" (an applied gold monogram), "Snowflake" (a holiday version with gold snowflakes), "Stardust" and "Wheat" (with gold stars and wheat stalks, respectively).
Condition
A used set with surface scuffs and nicks, made more apparent by the set's stark modernist design. No repairs or significant dents; no damage to the tines, blades or bowls. Light wear to the gilding. Solid pieces marked (on the underside in the die) "Gorham / Sterling / & / 18 K". An attractive set which could be much improved by a professional buffing.
