Re: British Orientalism Pattern

Interestingly, this same pattern was just recently posted on another forum, but the day of the month on that piece is clearly a '13' rather than '31' (perhaps a die cutting error?)... On the two suggestions from the Patents Journal, the 'Harrison' registration is for a flower stand, unfortunately, t...

Re: Help with Trefid or Dog-nose spoon encircled BM

Hi - welcome to the forums. Good job on posting your pics.

To my eye, this appears to be a cast pewter replica of a dognose spoon, perhaps from a museum (British Museum?)

Re: a mystery mark

It really is important to post all marks present on a piece, am not sure I understand why all information wouldn't be given in the initial post - in this case, there is a good possibility that the importer's mark would be one often related to Hanau makers...

Re: Whiting Mfg. Co. without trademark?

Personally, can't recall seeing a piece of Whiting Mfg. silverplate, have always known them as a 'solid silver only' manufacturer, and they advertised themselves as such in the 1890s.
