Lot Essay

According to Gorham scholar Sam Hough, this vase is the fifth in a series of unusual enamel designs registered by Gorham in the 1930s. All five vase designs feature "etch and lacquer" supplied by the firm of Charles Thomae & Son Company. Thomae had worked as a chaser at Gorham before founding his own firm in the 1920s.
