Hi,

I'm new to the forum and new to silver identification, so please bear with me. I have a Sterling tea service marked with Right facing lion, anchor is shield and a cap "G" in an octagon I believe it is. I think that I have a Gorham set. Pieces are marked from 2911 to 2915 and also with GR Boas and sterling.

Can anyone identify my pattern? If so, how did you do it? I appreciate any nibble of assistance that I can get!

Regards!

Hi annarama!
Welcome to the forum!
Can you possibly get a picture of the marks? Does it say sterling on the pieces?
Thanks, trying to help.

thanks Jersey!

It does say Sterling on the pieces. I can't get you photos of the marks, though. I'm now in another state from where the set is located. This set was a wedding gift given in the 70's, if that's any help.
