Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a gorgeous 5-piece Gorham Sterling Silver coffee/tea service.
The design features a paneled (ribbed) body with double horizontal ribs encircling each piece at the shoulder area. Each piece sits on a low pedestal base with both the rim and the base decorated with a wide gadroon border. Although we are not familiar with this pattern, it has many special elements that add to the beauty of this set. The waste has a gold washed interior. This set is not only gorgeous, it is a very heavy with each piece being substantial in size.
(1) Coffee Pot #501/1 (3 Pints) - Measures 10 3/4" high, 9 3/4" wide (from spout to handle) with a 3 7/8 diameter base. (2) Teapot #502/1 (2 1/2 Pints) - Measures 9 1/4" high, 9 1/4" wide (spout to handle) with a 3 3/4 diameter base. (3) Lidded Sugar Bowl #503/1 - Measures 6 1/2" high (to top of lid), 7" wide (handle to handle) with a 3 1/4 diameter base. (4) Creamer #504/1 (3/4 Pint) - Measures 5 1/2" high, 4 3/4" wide (spout to handle) with a 2 1/2 diameter base.
(5) Waste #505/1 - Measures 4 3/8" high with a 3 5/8" diameter top and 3 1/8 diameter base. Combined weight is 2740 grams. This set is in very good to excellent Estate condition with no major flaws (dents, dings or repairs) and reflecting only minor signs of normal wear.The only flaw we found is that the creamer is just slightly off level and has a minor wobble at the base (not enough to cause it to be unstable). This should be an easy fix but we will leave this for the next owner to address. As Sterling Silver trays are so difficult to find, we have decided to list the tray separately in case someone needs a tray for their own set.
