Gorham Antique Sterling Silver 'Buttercup' Pattern Asparagus Serving Tray and Liner, Providence, 1901

Gorham Antique Sterling Silver ‘Buttercup’ Pattern Asparagus Serving Tray and Liner, Providence, 1901

Possibly the rarest example of Buttercup ever made, this lovely server features cast and applied buttercup decoration around the rim.  It is enhanced with wonderful piercing.

The original removable liner is pierced with similar buttercup inspired designs.  Even the handles at each end of the liner include buttercups.

Underneath the liner in the center of the base, it is inscribed '1891 C 1916', most likely commemorating a 25th anniversary.

Gorham's beautiful Buttercup pattern is one of the most popular patterns of all time.  While some of the later pieces are quite common, some earlier pieces were made in limited quantities and very few examples survive today.  We've never seen one of these and who knows if we will again.

This rare sterling silver asparagus server is marked underneath with Gorham's trademark, 'STERLING", the 'A2408' model number along with the 1901 date mark and the number '2'.  The liner similarly marked, without the date mark.  It measures 14.75 inches over the handles by 10.5 inches wide and 1 inch high, weighs 43 .05 troy ounces and is in very good/ excellent antique condition.
