98.95 total t. oz. (weighable silver)

Provenance: Private collection, New Orleans, Louisiana.

**In overall good condition, retaining a nice bright finish. One place knife has a small nick on the spine near the tip with some discoloration around. One iced teaspoon has a tiny split nick on the tip of the bowl, and the salad serving fork has some scratches (but no nicks) on the back, both presumably disposal damage. Otherwise no issues noted beyond minimal wear. Each piece marked (on the underside, in the die) "Gorham Sterling". Case very good.

Sold for $2,500
