Silver Bowl Monogram Challenge

Silver Bowl

A triple....

Happy Monday.  After a relaxing weekend, it’s time to fire up the little grey cells for the silver bowl monogram challenge.

Today our script triple is on an absolutely scrumptious serving bowl by Gorham.  This lovely was made in 1932, for a short period Gorham simplified the task of dating their silver by marking it with a date code.  Sadly this practice did not continue….one of the great mysteries of the American silver trade is the difficutlties of precise dating…but that’s another story.
