Gorham made this Mid Century coffee and tea serving set in the Directional Pattern, ca. Each piece has a sleek modern design. The lid finials and dark handles are of ebonized wood. Included in this set are the following matching items: 2 7/8 pint coffee pot with lid (#1301), 2 1/2 Pint tea pot with lid (#1302), sugar bowl with lid (#1303) and 5/8 pint open creamer(#1304).The bottoms are all marked, "Gorham Sterling" along with a lion passant, anchor and "G", "6". Three individual pieces are also marked with liquid capacity and item numbers as listed. All of the pieces are in good vintage condition. The only piece that has anything noticeable is the coffee pot. It's wooden finial has a crack in it and the foot of the pot has a large 1 5/16 inch dent in it.
I originally thought the dent was part of the design because it is so centered below the spout. It is possible to have this repaired by a jeweler, but not necessary for functionality. Reflections in the photographs may detract from the true representation of how shiny and attractive this set can be. The insides are all pretty clean, but the coffee pot has a dark brown interior which may need some more detailing.
