RARE Gorham 1980 Silver-plated Snowflake Ornament


Shipping to United States: Free

Give the gift that becomes an heirloom with this stunning silver-plated snowflake ornament crafted by Gorham Silver in 1980. Originally introduced in 1970, the Gorham Snowflakes have become a treasured holiday tradition. Due to the high cost of silver in 1980, this was the ONLY silver-plated snowflake Gorham manufactured. There was no full size sterling silver snowflake produced by Gorham in 1980. In 1981, Gorham resumed manufacture of sterling snowflakes with the addition of a gold filled year mark for the rest of the 80’s decade. This is a VERY elusive ornament to find. Like all other Gorham snowflake ornaments, the intricate beauty of each year’s pattern will never be duplicated and depicts extraordinary detailing and symbolic beauty that will forever hold special meaning and memories for those who cherish the traditions of Christmas.
