This beautiful antique Sterling silver flatware set of 6 place dinner forks (Old-Original) Versailles Pattern by Gorham. My older reference book notes the patent date at 1885 but others put the patent date at 1888. A part of the large set these spoons came from has a tablespoon marked on the back "January 14, 1895"
The Versailles pattern was designed by Antone Heller and named for the palace at Versailles which was the residence of King Louis Xv of France. The designs were describes as 'scenes from the daily social lives of Versailles. On the finely detailed backs of the spoons there are very Gothic engraved monograms that are H, but also look like R, or B, or G, or A, more decoration than identification as pictured.

These beautiful antique heavy and beautifully Rococo detailed sterling silver set of 6 place dinner forks are in very fine condition, lovingly cared for and passed down. They are place forks measuring under 7". There was a distinctly larger dinner fork originally and a very slightly smaller size than place for luncheon. Deeply embossed, very heavy, the original pattern is obvious when compared with the modern version of Versailles Gorham Sterling. The modern version (last made 1991) is much less detailed with unadorned bowls and much less detailed as well as much lighter in weight. There is no comparison to the beauty and artistry of the original 19th Century original.
