This is a rare and unique version of a Dromedary Camel in a design patented by Peter J. Gordon (D35, 879, originally assigned to H A Cary Company of New York, April 22, 1902) as a dish. This piece also appears throughout history as an inkwell, ashtray and cigar stand lighter. The dish version has no hump.
Many a Dromedary Camel were listed by the Boston retailer Shreve Crump & Low.
All known versions have the distinct mark “PAT’D APL. 22. 02” and this version shows the Shreve Crump & Low Eagle logo along with their hallmarks, Sterling 925/1000 with a model number of 468.
Inspection with a loop shows an ancient solder on the baskets and they are well seated. Running my gloves over the piece, I find there is insignificant roughness to the front knees, noted for accuracy.
We have not cleaned this masterpiece.
There is NO EVIDENCE OF FILLING OR WEIGHTING.
Fully Sterling Silver 925/1000 as hallmarked.
Weight 137.2 grams or if you prefer, 4.84 ounces.
