Gorham Sterling (Merit Award) Shell Dish--14.35 Troy Oz

Given for 25 years of meritorious service in 1984, this solid heavy shell dish. Weighing 14.35 troy ounces, it was made to honor those who worked at Gorham. It is engraved, but the engraving can be buffed out.
Then, you are left with a beautiful sterling scallop dish. It rests on two little ball feet. It measures 9 1/2" in width and length, so it makes an excellent serving dish. Imagine Rumaki (bacon wrapped scallops) served on this plate!
Stamped on back is "Gorham Sterling (3 Gorham hallmarks) 40617 / 1". Comes in its original anti-tarnish cloth drawstring bag.
