The Buttercup Flat Handle Butter Spreader by Gorham measures 6.5". First made in 1899, Buttercup by Gorham has stood the test of time with its intricately carved floral motifs. With a beautiful floral pattern arranged along the handles and necks of each piece, Buttercup finds a balance with a slender central panel edged with delicate borders. Reminiscent of Venetian lace, Buttercup by Gorham evokes a certain romance. Gorham applies a tarnish at the factory to highlight the many flowers on the handles, so please use a standard silver polish so that this applied tarnish will continue to make your flowers stand out.
