Gorham rare silver plate wall crucifix, signed "Gorham" on the back with the old trademark hallmark and on the other side of the back the code for the design 1808 and the code "O" which indicates the silver plate metal, as this cross was also made in a bronze or brass. It measures 9 & 1/8" tall and 5 & ¼" wide and is in very good condition. We only found one of these on the internet, sold long ago in a brass; and also saw an old document describing ironically fine religious items made by the Gorham Silver company actually mentioning this exact crucifix and the metals from which they are made and the metals code, something we never could have found otherwise as many of the old records of Gorham religious items were lost long ago.
