Can someone please help?

I have 2 spoons I think are Gorham, they have a 'T' in a triangle the lion, anchor, and I think it is a 'G' immediately after the 3 marks the word sterling. On the thinnest part of the back of the spoon is the name J. W. Sanders. There are 5 roses in a horseshoe pattern on the end of the handle in front, and 3 roses on the back of handle and a beaded design going the full length of the handle on both sides.

I have spent hours trying to ID this to no avail. Can someone 'please' confirm if it is Gorham. And what the pattern might be.

Thank you. I just acquired about 40 pcs. Sterling and have gotten the rest, but this one I can't.

The pattern sounds like the Gorham Lancaster Rose pattern of 1897. J. W. Sanders is undoubtedly the retailer of the flatware. The "T" in the triangle might stand for the spoons' weight--i.e., "trade," which means, I think, 9 ozt. of silver per twelve teaspoons.
