Narragansett is no ordinary pattern. The name “Narragansett” is derived from a Native American tribe that was once part of the Algonquians. These people occupied the coasts of Rhode Island, with an Atlantic inlet at Rhode Island named “Narragansett Bay” due to their presence. In the mid-nineteenth century, Gorham Silver, of Providence, Rhode Island commissioned a flatware pattern that was to be a study of the flora and fauna of the Rhode Island coastline, bay, and sea. The pattern debuted in 1884, at the height of the Art Nouveau and Naturalistic movements, which were known for designs featuring nature, organic forms, and free flowing lines. Pieces from Narragansett featured rocks, seaweed, flowers, and fish beautifully sculpted on twisting handles that resemble driftwood and coral. Hints of the Rococo style of architecture can be found in the seashells and playful lines of Narragansett pieces. Various pieces from the Narragansettpattern are similarly made, with handles consisting of a cast stem that features marine-inspired décor. Although the pattern never gained an immense following due to its very limited production, it did cause quite a stir when shown in Gorham’s 1885 catalogue. Gorham’s artisans were given incredible license in creating each piece in the Narragansett pattern. It is said that no two pieces of Narragansett are the same, with shells being applied in different places on each piece and even different types of seaweed are used.

An additional unique characteristic of the Narragansett design is the application of “fake damage.” “Fake damage” was a term that was used to describe items that were artificially distressed in the creative process; this process is akin to applying a faux antique finish to a new piece of furniture. It has been said that the various seashells and other appliqués that appear on Narragansett pieces look as though that have had a prolonged underwater stay.

Almond dish is shaped like a oyster shell with another smaller muscle or oyster shell as the base. Ther is encrustation on the sides. Only signature is a STERLING on the under lip. The spoon features an oyster shell shaped bowl with crustations inside the bowl and seaweed wrapped around the back. A small crab is perched on the stem of the spoon. This piece is marked STERLING.
