Wondering if anyone can help me with a date mark for an oval serving tray with A2785 mark. Would also like recommendations for Gorham reference books. Thanks mucho. Cyndy C.

Hi Cyndy! The book on Gorham that I like is Gorham Silver, 1831-1981. by Charles Carpenter Jr. It has been revised to a 1997 edition but very difficult to find. Try looking on this forum for it, or do a google search. I found mine in my library. You might try an inter-library request for it. I know ebay has many reprints for sale on their flatware. The A I believe indicates a special order. It may date from the "19 teens".
Can you tell us what the piece is, that may help.
I hope I am giving you the right info, as I too am a new member & perhaps you will get other responses. Hope this helps! Stay Safe. Jersey
