Hiya,

Can any of you help me with this item?

Any idea of age, pattern etc?

Your tongs' pattern is called Lancaster it was originally offered in 1897. I cannot tell you the age of your tongs since it is possible that Gorham could have made these in the same pattern many years later. A great deal depends on the desirability of a design and it's ability to stand the tastes of the times.

Hope this helps,
Fred
