Chasing Silver: The Story of Gorham:
Rhode Island PBS is producing an outstanding three part documentary on Gorham by Scott & Maria Saracen. (Full disclosure, they interviewed us.)
Best of all, each episode is available for public viewing online. The link to watch the episodes is: https://watch.ripbs.org/show/chasing-silver-story-gorham/
CHASING SILVER: THE STORY OF GORHAM chronicles the history of the Gorham Manufacturing Company. Established in 1831, the small workshop in Providence, Rhode Island, grew to become an international titan of silver manufacturing.
This is an epic, trans-Atlantic tale of wild ideas and fortuitous encounters, of pushing boundaries, dreaming boldly, and seizing opportunities without reservation. It is also an age-old tale of soaring to great heights and surviving dramatic falls.
The Gorham story is as much about global renown as it is about local pride and nostalgia for families and neighborhoods indelibly shaped by Gorham, just as powerfully as Gorham shaped its famous silver wares.
