Catalogue Note

Gorham's Martelé archives indicate that this piece was finished September 15, 1900 and was part of a series of twelve. The making on this one and several others is noted as being by a "boy", or apprentice, and this example took 40 hours, making it one of the most complex of the group. The chasing was by G.A. Achillertim for 35 hours, again one of the longest times in the group, and the net factory price was $60.
