Hi there and thanks for joining us. It appears to be a child's cup, but is not nearly that old. The Gorham date letters - 1868 to 1884 - all had periods after the letter, such as B. The "B" on your cup is part of the pattern or model number, so the pattern would be 631-B, probably denoting the engraving vs. a plain cup of the same design.

I'd estimate the value in the range of $100.

Regards,

Uncle Vic
