Today I wanted to share with you my favorite flatware pattern. It’s Gorham’s Buttercup pattern first introduced in 1899. I’ve owned this pattern for 40+ years and I’ve never grown tired of it.
Here’s a close-up detail of the beautiful sterling silver design.
I prefer the earlier pieces of Buttercup, circa 1899. Above is the silver marks you will find on Gorham. Lion/Anchor/G.
The entire set makes for a beautiful tabletop.
