I have attached photos of a set of twelve demitasse spoons by Gorham each marked with a different number from 53 to 64, Sterling, and the Gorham mark. They are gilded. Each spoon has a different full figured mythological figure.

I have been researching for some time and cannot find it any where. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated

The pattern name is "Apollo". Here are two Gorham catalog pages:

Is this pattern considered rare or are they readily available?

Rare or not? I have seen it before. But it is difficult for me to say because they are not the sort of thing I look for or pay attention too. Maybe someone else knows better?

Hi Karen. Sets of coffee spoons were very popular in the 1880s and 1890s, and many were produced. But as these are full figural cast spoons, I think they would have been more expensive and are therefore less common today than, say, the cheaper stamped and engraved pieces. As a dealer, I would consider this set more desirable than some of the other coffee spoon sets produced at this time. Also, it's a plus to have the complete set of twelve in such lovely condition. It's a nice set.

Thank you for your opinions. I think they are great and enjoy having them in my collection.
