Gorham 'Corinthian' Pattern Antique Sterling Silver 'Macaroni' or Pasta Server, Providence, RI, c. 1870's


This striking serving instrument can be used for many articles of food but was initially intended for pasta or macaroni. The handle is in the 'Corinthian' pattern and designed with classically inspired decoration. A lovely 'C' monogram is engraved in the reserve. 

The bowl has a shaped edge and is engraved with a classical design. A series of tines for scooping food is also delicately engraved.

This wonderful server is marked on the back with Gorham's trademark along with 'STERLING' and by the Boston retailer 'A. STOWELL & Co'. It measures 10.5 inches long, weighs 3.20 troy ounces and is in very good antique condition.
