Gorham Manufacturing Company Coin Silver Medallion Centerpiece Bowl, retailed by Tiffany & Co., c. 1865
Retailed by Tiffany & Co, this rare form in Gorham's famous 'Medallion' line features a shaped rim with two wonderful cast and applied portrait medallions; a woman on one side and a man wearing a helmet on the other.
Against a stippled background, these classical reliefs have stunning detail. The rim of the bowl and the base above the four splayed feet are decorated with lovely Greek-key banding. One side bears an original 'Z.T.D.' monogram.
This beautiful oval centerpiece bowl is marked underneath with Gorham's trademark, by the retailer 'TIFFANY & CO' and with the model '295' along with a star. It measures 13.75 inches across the handles by 8 inches deep by 5 inches high, weighs 25.05 troy ounces and is in excellent antique condition.
