Found this during a visit to my parents house. This was the baby spoon used to feed me. So now I see where my love for silver comes from! I understand that my grandparents gave it to my mom, and she gave it to me the other day. The bottom is broken, where the spoon meets the bowl on the back. But it is in decent shape.

I guess Gorham did a Zodiac Pattern series. The strange thing is that this one is called Virgo, and it has the month "AUGUST" written down the looped handle. I was born in August, but I am a LEO. So, it is half accurate! I looks like my grandparents had my last initial engraved on the back, "H".

"STERLING
OCT 9 1894"

A nice piece of family history.

    So glad that you still have this!! The 1894 is the year in which this pattern was patented.
