Question
Serving Pieces
Serving Pieces  
Thanks Jim - you are correct, the mfg is Wallace - not Gorham on my Grande Baroque.   I have attached a picture showing the serving pieces only.  I'm having difficulty finding this pattern with the gold covering the entire piece to get an idea of value.  Any thoughts?
Thank you!

Answer
Hello.

I have no experience with a set like yours that is completely gold plated. I have not been able to find any sales of a set like this.

I recommend that you try this approach. Contact two or three large dealers and ask what they will offer for your set. Make sure to explain that it is gold plated all over and not the gold accented version. Calculate the average of the offers and multiply that figure by three or four. You'll end up with an approximate market value. When you send the list of pieces to the dealers, include the lengths and describe any that have hollow handles and stainless steel blades such as knives, cake servers, etc. Here is a list to start with:

- www.replacements.com
- www.antiquecupboard.com
- www.silverqueen.com
- www.asyoulikeitsilvershop.com

Sorry I could not help  directly.

best wishes,

Jim
