Gorham Silver: Designing Brilliance, 1850–1970

 

1 | INTRO

Who are the people of Gorham? What were their lives like? What difference did it all make?

 

2 | MEMORY

How did Gorham shape our memories? An old Gorham advertisement, an honorary cup, and a trip to a statue they left behind hold clues.

 

3 | CARE

Take your seat at a table set with silver. There’s going to be a dinner party.

 

4 | Labor

A peek onto the factory floor. A glimpse of the hands that made all of this silver.

 

5 | PLACE

Exploring the land where Gorham’s factory once sat. Past, present and future.
