Hello all. I am a patent attorney. A major historic patent case was Gorham v. White and involved two silver flatware companies. I would like to obtain a spoon of each companies flatware that was at issue in the case and have them framed together and put in my office. Gorham's design was called Cottage. White's, which I believe was making flatware under the company Rogers & Brothers, was called Gothic.

You can see drawings of each party's flatware in an old SSF post here:
Gorham Co. v. White -- "The Cottage infringment"

I have been able to track down Gorham's Cottage design, but not White's (Rogers & Brothers) Gothic design.

I would greatly appreciate any help you could provide in finding a piece of White's Gothic flatware!
