Large turn-of-the-century Edwardian sterling silver porringer. Made by Gorham in Providence. Deep and tapering bowl with raised foot and open scrolled handled. Rim border comprising square frames with low-relief pictogram-style representations of nursery rhymes, including a fiddling cat and moon-jumping cow (Hey, Diddle, Diddle) and blackbird pie and clothes-hanging maid (Sing a Song of Sixpence). A cerebral distillation of key symbols. Lots of room for engraving. Fully marked including no. A8240, worn date symbol, and Chicago retailer’s stamp Spaulding & Co. Very good condition with strong definition.

Dimensions: H 2 1/2 x W 7 x D 4 3/4 in. Weight: 7.3 troy ounces. #BT006
