This uncommon pattern is stunning. 'Old Medici' is a detailed and intricate pattern of renaissance inspired motifs, designed by Antoine Heller, Gorham's preeminent flatware designer of the late 19th century. It is a multi-motif pattern, meaning that each piece has a different design. This ladle features the full figure of a maiden holding a long horn. The lovely bowl has a wavy edge and retains the original gilding. The back of the handle is engraved with a 'C' initial.
This stunning ladle is marked with Gorham's trademark and 'STERLING'. It measure just under 7 inches long, weighs 2.05 troy ounces and is in excellent crisp condition.
