I was wondering if anyone can identify this locket, it has the Gorham Hallmark, and the text reads:

PATENT 1889
STERLING
636
Followed by a horseshoe shaped mark shown in the pictures below (if you can see it!)

Additionally, I would like to know if anyone is aware of any good sources of information on Gorham silver jewelry, and how common it is, as I have been unable to find any real information on it.

Many thanks.

Your piece is actually a vinaigrette that is missing the grill.
Below is a photo of the piece with the grill.
