Re: Bailey Banks & Biddle Flask

Hi ~ The maker is Dominick & Haff: http://www.925-1000.com/americansilver_D.html From the look of the lip and remnants in the crevices of the repousse-work, the flask appears to have originally been gilt, with most all of it worn off now...

Re: Need identification salt spoon

The trademark is a variant of the International Silver (Wilcox & Evertson) Indian-head - the pattern is 'John Winthrop', introduced in 1911.

Re: Gorham spoon pattern date and name? Sweet Pea?

Can't tell you the name of your pattern, but it's very similar in design to a circa 1890 Gorham pattern called 'Violet', and believe yours would date about the same, and was also most likely named for the flower depicted - have only seen 'Violet' in pattern guide illustrations, so no idea whether it...

Re: Gorham Castle Crag 1893 or 1910

It's the 1893 date mark (the 1910 mark is actually sort of twisted with tails, rather than just two conjoined circles), and the Gorham mark is typical of their 19th century electroplate. Not sure what you mean regarding the "era of 5 digit places (a zero before an older four digit pattern)"...

Re: Mysterious Triangle Sterling American

Not really following your logic on the toast forks/Jenks/ Gorham connection, but Rainwater is hardly some "old reference book", and as already mentioned, she cited her source as the Jewelers' Circular. The 'L' is a pound sterling symbol, old versions seen with both single and double cross-...

Scandinavian spoon, maker 'OG'

Not sure where this piece is from, could be Danish, Norwegian, or even Icelandic - do find Danish makers Otto F. Gigas, Copenhagen 1906-37 and Ole Gamsgaard, Gentofte 1953-63 - any thoughts or opinions?
