The fascinating and richly varied Gorham legacy began in 1831 when Jabez Gorham began making coin silver spoons to respond to demand throughout New England. His commitment to uncompromising quality and old world craftsmanship is evident in each and every work crafted by Gorham for more than 170 years. Many of these works are national treasures. Others command very high prices in today's collecting world. Fortunately, the artists and craftsmen of Gorham have passed their passion, skills and crafting techniques down through the generations. And today, Gorham maintains the same high standards followed by the founder and his masters of hand workmanship.
Now entering its third century, the Gorham hallmark has been recognized as a symbol of excellence. In a world of constant change, some things should never change, like maintaining and, if possible, elevating the highest standards of workmanship. This is the commitment to the original founder's principles that is shared to this day by the metalsmiths and crystal artisans who create beautiful and functional collections bearing the Gorham hallmark. The artists of Gorham continually dedicate themselves to an enduring legacy of artistic beauty and consummate craftsmanship.
