Gorham History

Gorham was founded in Rhode Island in 1831, and although it established itself as a silverware company, it also produces china and stemware and is sought after by collectors. 


The White House has used Gorham silver services during many administrations. Mary Todd Lincoln purchased an impressive tea and flatware service for use in the White House in 1859. The tea service was presented to the National Museum of American History in 1957. Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant asked Gorham to commemorate the country's one-hundredth anniversary with a spectacular Century Vase that contained over 2,000 ounces of sterling silver. 


Textron purchased the company in 1967 and then sold to Dansk International Designs in 1989. Brown-Forman Corporation acquired Gorham from Dansk in 1991 and sold in 2005 to Department 56 in the Lenox holdings transaction, with the resulting company renamed as Lenox Group.
