Question
Fork
Fork  
I have a set of silverware that is labeled 'Gorham Sterling Pat. 1935' on the back but am unable to find the pattern name anywhere. I was wondering if you might be able to identify the pattern name and value. Thank you.

Answer
Hi, Susan.

I'm going to have to guess at this one. I found references to a Gorham pattern called "Christina-Engraved" but I could not find any pictures. The fork in your picture has the same physical layout as a salad fork in the "normal" Christina pattern.

I can't estimate the value because I have not found any sales of this pattern. You might contact the folks at www.replacements.com to see if they will make an offer. They can also verify the pattern.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
