Catalogue Note

The letter coding suggests that this is a slightly later special order reprisal of Gorham's popular #125 ice bowl, first introduced in 1870 and a best seller for the following fifteen years.  This EME bowl may have been produced around the time of Gorham's EMH Martelé tea set, which was completed in October, 1903.
