Gorham Sterling Silver Henry VIII Bon Bon Server
Very unusual and elaborate sterling silver figural bon bon server by Gorham. Approximately 9" long with the bowl 3". Weighs 6 troy ounces. Marks include the Gorham logo of the lion, anchor and G, STERLING and the number H79. The letter H may mean heavy because it is a heavy piece. The bowl is beautifully decorated with scrolls and swags with fruit in a gothic style. Above that is a lion on one side and a unicorn on the other standing atop banners holding a shield. On top of the shield is what appears to be a bull. Above that is a full bodied Henry VIII standing on a pedestal. He is very detailed front and back. Very good condition.
