Chasing Silver: The Story of Gorham

From Chasing Silver, Ep 1: Furber Service

Clip | 4m 10s

The Victorian love of decoration and excess leads to a remarkable period of intricate Gorham designs. Improvements in transportation and refrigeration bring exotic foods and perishables to more homes - and create new demand for exotic serving utensils and to serve it all. The masterwork of the period is the Furber Service for 24, a collection of hundreds of unique pieces created over a decade.
