"Virginia" is a heavy turn of the century pattern by Gorham with beautiful art nouveau poppy details. This spoon is hand-pierced in the bowl between poppies that meander down from the handle. The handle is likewise decorated with poppies on both the front and back. The reserve has never been monogrammed.
