I have had a Gorham Sterling silverware set and don't

Customer Question

I have had a Gorham Sterling silverware set for years and don't know where to go to see if it's real and what it is worth. I believe it's real because when I polished it the cloth was really black. The marking I can see on the forks is Gorham Sterling and a letter M. Can you help me?

Thank you for that information. I will check the patternPlease let me know how many guests your set will serve (this is called number of place settings).Then how many pieces does each person have. (This is the number of pieces in each place settings.Next I need a list or photo of serving pieces. These can add a lot to value.Kind regards,Doris
