The Gorham Manufacturing Company is an American silver producer started by Jabez Gorham and Henry Webster in Providence, Rhode Island in 1831. Originally focusing on smaller objects, including those made of coin silver, the firm expanded to larger objects and hollowares in the late 1840s under Gorham's son John who introduced European craftsmanship and industrial techniques to the production of silver.
The firm produced both sterling and silverplate objects. While it attained a leading position as silver maker with luxurious goods, in part from acquisition of rivals in the first part of the 20th century, post war tastes ignored sterling, leading to a long slow decline which saw it acquired by various holding firms from the mid 1960s onward. It operates today as a division of the Lenox Corporation.
Nearly all of Gorham silver pieces are marked.
