Silver and Flatware/Gorham EP Stoplight Jigger


My grandfather worked as a designer at Gorham for many years since the 50's. He has a massive Gorham silver collection and he has worked on many of them. He recently gave me a "Gorham Stoplight Jigger". I have looked on the internet to find information on this piece. I found many but not quite like the one i have. First off, the piece i have is electroplated. I have only seen sterling jiggers. Second, The only thing stamped on the bottom is (line1)-GORHAM, (line2)-E(anchor mark)P, (line3)-YC1192.

The Jiggers i found are all stamped (line1)-GORHAM, (line2)-STERLING, (line3)-354, (line4)-STOPLIGHT JIGGER, (line5)-3, (line6)-2, (line7)-1oz.

My theory is that the electroplated jigger i have is a prototype or sample. My grandfather and i would very much appreciate any information you may know about this item and it's value.


I'm sorry to say I am not familiar with this piece. I also am not familiar with issue regarding sterling vs possible silver plate prototype.

You might try posting on the forum at I'm sure some of the participants there would like to know about this and one may have the answer. They do require pictures.

Sorry I could be of no help.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
