I recently have been going through my grandmothers old stuff since she passed and I found a bag of silver. They all are marked Gorham, I looked online and found they are the Chantilly collection and the date codes/stamps on them date right in the last 1/4 of the 19th century, one website suggested they were 1895.
Lion, anchor and G.
I have a total of 51 pieces,
11 small spoons
12 soup spoons
5 butter knives
5 dinner knives
5 crab forks.
All are in good shape, but not polished up, they have been in the velvet bags individually wrapped since new. Enclosed is a pic of the collection.
Are they worth anything as a set or just at melt value?
Thanks in advance, looking forward to learning more about these items here.
