GORHAM

Gorham was one of the most important American silver and jewellery manufacturers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, rivalled only by Tiffany & Co. The company was founded by Jabez Gorham in 1831 in Providence Rhode Island. Gorham was the first in America to make French filigree jewellery, along with other innovations such as the Gorham type gold chain. They also excelled at silversmithing, many pieces of which are still a part of historic American collections, including the White House. Today Gorham focuses exclusively on the production of fine silver and other tableware.
