Gorham's archives, as reproduced by Larry Pristo in Martelé 950-1000 Fine Gorham's Nouveau Art Silver, 2002, p. 388, reveal that Soup Plates MHG and Service Plates MHH were completed on 13 July 1907. The original service included twenty-four soup plates made by K. Danielson and Nels N. Ha(a)rklou and forty-eight dinner plates made by Samuel R. Wood and George A. Schart. All of the plates were then chased by Emil Stursberg.
