About what date did Gorham add the "copyrighted" to the marks lion, anchor, and G?

Thank you,

Copyrighted suggests an aesthetic design patent (Unger Brothers copyrighted a lot of its designs in 1904 and used the word copyrighted with its mark). A picture of the piece in question would help answer your query. I think of the use of "copyrighted" as an early 20th-century phenomenon, but don't see it as a way to date a Gorham piece particularly.

This topic was discussed at some length in 1999. Search using the words: old medici copyrighted.
