Does anyone know of a Gorham sterling hollowware pattern known as Gregorian? A friend of mine recently inherited a beautiful tea and coffee set (including a massive sterling tea tray) in this pattern. It's in a sort of Frenchified Renaissance design with nice embossed banding and decoration. The bottoms are stamped with the name "Gregorian" and a model number, A13005, 04, etc. It appears to be early 20th century.

I'm clueless on American manufactured silver so any information is welcomed.

I did a check in our database of Gorham flatware pattern names and the only names that come close ("Gr....") are:
  • Grape
  • Grecian
  • Greenbrier
  • Griswold

Starting in 1868, Gorham put a date mark (a symbol or a letter or a framed number) on their holloware. Is there a date mark?

Interesting. Maybe this was a pattern just for hollowware, not flatware?

There was a date mark, which I didn't look at carefully since I don't have any Gorham references ... I'll check it and get back to you.
