Lot Essay

This model of black coffee service was first produced in March 1900 for the Paris Exposition. According to Gorham scholar, Sam Hough, this three-piece service was reproduced in November 1912 at a cost of approximately $870. The service was subsequently divided between two sisters and engraved with their marriage dates, before being reunited in the 1960s.
