This is a lovely ladle in the uncommon Lotus pattern by Gorham. The striking pattern has a plain handle with three lotus flowers at the top. Simulated rope binds the top and base of the handle. The bowl has dramatic lobing emanating from a single Egyptionate lotus bud bloom. It is also beautifully pierced with complimentary floral decoration below the scalloped edge.
This stunning, small ladle is marked with Gorham's trademark and 'STERLING'. It measures 6.5 inches long, weighs 1.15 troy ounces, has never been monogrammed and is in very good condition with light wear to the original goldwash within the bowl.
