Catalogue Note

Gorham's Martelé archives indicate that the centerpiece and stand were created as a two-piece set and were completed on December 12, 1905. The centerpiece had a net factory price of $635 and the stand $260. It took 120 hours to make the centerpiece and 50 hours for the stand. The stand was made by F.O. Erichsen, but there is no maker listed for the centerpiece. They were both chased by George W. Sauthof, who took 186.5 hours for the centerpiece and 88 hours for the stand.
