Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

And just to compare, here is an early century commercial china plate supplied through Portland and thought to be an older version of the Arlington's horned "A". The teapot just doesn't have that Texas Longhorn style. More like ZsuZsu's angel wings. https://i.postimg.cc/vmvWJ9N4/image.jpg h...

Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

In the photos, the as yet unknown user is a worn down "AC" or "CA" intertwined. The code "U.F. 40" might be related, but we can't really tell. The production date is 1921...21 boxed. We should expect the number "9" to be matched to a number in the lid, but ins...

Re: C Wilcox Hallmark - dating a spoon
