The Gorham Company as it exists today was originally founded in Providence, Rhode Island in 1831 by Jabez Gorham, who had already been working as a silversmith since 1813, and Henry L. The firm's chief product was silver spoons, although they also made thimbles, combs, jewelry, and other small items. In 1842, a tariff which effectively blocked the importation of silverware from outside the U. Was passed, which served as an impetus to the American silver industry. Jabez Gorham did not take full advantage of this opportunity, but in 1847 Jabez retired and his son, John Gorham succeeded him as head of the company. John Gorham was a man of notable foresight, he introduced mechanized production methods, enlarged the premises in downtown Providence, improved the designs, and expanded the product line.
In 1852, he toured many of Europe's silver workshops and factories, speaking with individual specialists, including master craftsmen and toolmakers. He also sought out highly skilled foreign workmen to train his American workers. George Wilkinson, a premier designer and workshop manager, was hired from England. The White House has used Gorham silver services during many administrations.Grant asked Gorham to commemorate the country's one-hundredth anniversary in 1875 with a spectacular Century Vase that contained over 2000 ounces of sterling silver. Among Gorham's major trophy commissions are the America's cup for yachting, the Davis Cup for tennis, and the Borg-Warner Trophy for the Indianapolis 500. No monograms, dings, dents or twisting. Gold washed interior of creamer and waste bowl.
