Unknown Coin Silver 8.5" Spoon

Here is an unknown coin silver 8 1/2" serving spoon, the only mark is "COIN" on the reverse behind the bowl. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/136304277/IMG_3443.JPG http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/136304280/IMG_3444.JPG http://tsfe...

Unknown 1847 Rogers Bros Bon Bon Spoon?

This is an 1847 Rogers Bros (marked) ornate bon bon spoon (I believe), 5". I cannot find the pattern anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/136304121/IMG_3449.JPG http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/136304124/IMG_3450.JPG http://tsfe...

Sterling Fork ID Help Please

I believe this is a small meat serving fork because of its length (7 1/2"). The maker's mark somewhat resembles the Towle mark, but I've been through all of Replacements sterling patterns and did not find this one. Any ideas? Thanks. http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/136021323/IMG_3402.JP...

Small Pierced Ladle with Butterfly/Bee Motif

This is a small pierced ladle (4 3/4") with a butterfly/bee at the handle end. Unfortunately, it's unmarked, as far as I can tell. Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Dave http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/135460584/IMG_2930.JPG http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/135460587/IMG_29...

Towle Mfg Co with Towle "T" and Bird/Bat?

I have a Tipped pattern teaspoon Towle Mfg Co. The reverse shows the Towle script "T" and then what appears to be a bird or bat at the bowl end of the handle. It then shows "TOWLE MFG CO" further up on the handle. This could be from the Towle 1880 silverplate Tipped pattern, but ...

A.E. & Co. N.S.

I have a 7 1/2" small serving spoon that I cannot identify. I think it is probably silver plated (the N.S. on the reverse -- nickel silver?). The maker's mark is "A.E. & Co." Anyone have any ideas? Regards, Dave http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/135350715/IMG_2788.JPG http:/...

I have some smaller silverplate forks that appear to have the mark of John Round and Sons, but I haven't seen this exact mark anywhere online. I'm interested as to whether or not they are John Round & Sons, what the pattern is, and approximate age based upon the mark. Any help is appreciated. Th...

Re: Unknown 1847 Rogers Bros Fruit Knife

Is it possible these are plain knives customized by someone? I have 6 of these and 3 appear to be wider than the other 3 (see photos). Thanks. http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/134452371/IMG_1503.JPG http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/134452374/IMG_1504.JPG

Unknown 1847 Rogers Bros Fruit Knife

I've been through my book and looked online, but I can't find this 1847 Rogers Bros pattern. This fruit knife is marked "1847 Rogers Bros" on the silverplate blade. I'm guessing late 1800s from the look of it. Thanks. http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/133676058/IMG_1237.JPG http://ts...

S or script F mark on Berry Fork?

I have a what I think is a hollow handle berry fork with stainless tines and what I believe is a silver plate handle. The maker's mark appears to be either an "S" or scripted "f" with a line through it inside of a diamond. As always, your help is greatly appreciated. Dave http://...

Thanks so much for the information. I saw the 800 and figured it was German -- never had a Swiss piece before.

Unknown Maker 800 Silver Ladle

This one took me a while to find the maker's mark -- it's tiny and located on the edge of the handle instead of the back. It has an inverted "V" with dots around it. Then it has what looks like 0.800. I have included photos -- the last few are taken through the eye piece of a microscope. I...

Unmarked Coin? 1790 Demitasse

This small spoon (4 5/8") is made of what I think is coin silver. There are no marks on it except for a dot matrix type "1790" on the reverse at the end. The "1" is very faint, but it's there. Any idea on maker? Not much to go on. Thanks. http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fe...

Re: Patent 1855 COIN Marked Fish Fork 9"

Thank you. From that, I have found the pattern -- Josephine.

Any idea on piece type? It seems like it could be an asparagus or fish server.

Thanks.

Patent 1855 COIN Marked Fish Fork 9"

This one has no maker's mark that I can see. It measures 9" in length and I think it's either a large Fish Serving Fork or Asparagus Fork. The only markings read "PATENT 1855 COIN" on the reverse. Thanks! http://tsfebay.pbworks.com/w/file/fetch/132800427/IMG_0237.JPG http://tsfebay.pb...

Re: BB&S * Mark on piece

I'm afraid this is the best I have. I took many photos of the best of the four knives. All marks are very worn.

Thanks.
