A bit of Gorham History:

The Gorham Silver company was founded in Providence Rhode Island in 1831 by Jebaz Gorham, a master craftsman, in partnership with Henry Webster. The firm's chief product was spoons of coin silver. The company also made thimbles, combs, jewelry, and other small items.During the heyday of American silver manufacturing, approximately 1850 - 1940, Gorham was highly influential. The company was purchased by Textron in 1967, a move that some critics claim decreased quality due to management's lack of understanding of Gorham's specialty, producing high-quality sterling silverware and holloware.[5] Gorham was owned by Brown-Forman Corporation from 1991 to 2005 until it was sold to Department 56 in the Lenox holdings transaction.

All my items are antique or vintage and therefore have had a previous life. Imperfections may exist and I do my best to disclose any that may be there.
