The Gorham was founded in Providence, Rhode Island in 1831. The firm was known for the fine quality of their pieces.
They produced sterling silverware, combs, jewelry, thimbles as well as many attractive plated pieces. The match safe is in very good condition. Please note, good condition means an item is used and has blemishes as described. The piece has gentle surface wear. I noticed two minor dents.
One is on the top lid as it sets into the base. The second dent is on the side.Each side of the striker has a series of small dents. It has no cracks, breaks or repairs. Additional information included above in the DESCRIPTION.
