Gorham China, China Replacements, American Dinnerware

Replacement China in discontinued china patterns by Gorham China.

The Gorham company was founded in 1831 by Jabez Gorham.  Initially, Gorham manufactured only sterling flatware and holloware.  Later, from 1970 to 1984, the Gorham Division of Textron, Inc., made fine china dinnerware in Pasadena, California, at a plant formerly occupied by Flintridge China Company.  Gorham purchased Flintridge in March of 1970 and for a few years continued to make some Flintridge patterns.  Eventually Gorham began producing their own china designs many of which were made to coordinate with their sterling silver patterns.  In 1984, Gorham ceased manufacturing its own china and began importing it from Japan.  In the early 1990s, Lenox, Inc. of Lawrenceville, New Jersey, purchased Gorham and continues to make various Gorham China patterns today. - See Gorham Crystal and Gorham Flatware
