A small 4" x 6" booklet that was evidently a souvenir of Gorham's booth in the 1904 World's Fair. It is about 30 pages long. The cover is rather bland in appearance, perhaps it made a nice contrast to the dazzling wares actually on display and illustrated within. The contents are printed on thick, gilt-edge paper. There are several exquisite engravings inside (they look murky in the images because of sheets of tissue paper, on which are printed captions for the illustration). The text, naturally, is largely self-promotional. I didn't scan every page.

Are the whereabouts of pieces like the inlaid table known today?

The inlaid table shown here is in the collection of the Rhode Island School of Design Museum (RISD) in Providence, RI. It is splendid-but I'm not sure if it is on display all the time. Gorham did another great, all silver dressing table and bench, for their Martele line, which is in the Dallas Museum.
