I.O.G.: Silversmith of Georgetown, D.C.

Record #:
Recently several pieces of hollowware dating circa 1815 have been discovered with a clear maker’s mark, IOG. The mark is for James Orme Gaither, a silversmith of the Gaither family who settled in North Carolina and Maryland. James started his own business in Georgetown, D.C., and often made silver for legislators and visitors to the nation’s capital.
