I am trying to determine whether this is the older or newer style of Gorham Versailles. At first, I thought this was a straight forward answer…“If it has the word COPYRIGHT then it is of the older molds.” This may be true, but I think there are others that do not have this on the back of the pieces that are also of the older origin. The piece I have does not appear to be made from 1991-1998, but please help me identify the age based on the markings. I do know that various letters can also determine the date codes as well but this piece does not have any letters. For example, an “H” would indicate 1875 origin and I have seen some with just the letter and no “COPYRIGHT” printed.
In any case, I am trying to determine what year this particular mark pertains to.
Here is additional info on the Gorham Marks but I was unable to locate this particular one:
Thanks in advance for your help.
