Gorham sterling silver, style number 520 bonboniere. An unusual and hard to find remnant of the late Victorian era in the United States.
From a 2009 article in Antiques Magazine:
In 1890 Gorham introduced six bonbon “scoops” (Gorham’s term) numbered 510, 515, 520, 525, 530, 535. Each had a small uniquely shaped gilt bowl entirely occupied by a different elaborate hand-pierced rococo design and a differently shaped carved handle pinned to a tubular extension from the bowl.
