This crumber is a unique and rare find! A lovely example of Aesthetic Movement silver by Gorham, this sterling silver and mixed metal crumber exemplifies the popularity and beauty of this 19th-century style. Featuring an all-over hand hammered surface in the Japanese taste, the shaped rectangular crumb catcher is highly reflective and has a wonderful texture. The hammered handle also has an applied mixed metal leaf, branch and berry motif. The reverse of the handle has been stamped with the identifying marks of the Gorham Manufacturing Co., and the words Sterling & Other Metals. It measures approx. 12 3/4" long, and is in excellent condition with a wonderful texture and crisp decoration. This substantial example of sterling and mixed metal would make an excellent addition to any group of 19th century flatware.
