Re: VT 830s

Since you don't show the face of either ring you posted, would guess that they relate to the German occupation of Norway during WWII - but again, the engraving of 'Stavanger' does not necessarily indicate the maker was in Stavanger...

Re: Cutlery Wm. A. Rogers Sterling

As already suggested, while possible that this was made and sold by Wm. A. Rogers, seems more likely that the blade was made by them, with the sterling ferrule and handle (which appears to be faux stag-horn) made by other manufacturers. Stainless steel came into common use not too long after WWI end...

Re: The napkin ring. Enamel.

Hi ~ welcome to the forums.

Are you sure there aren't quality and/or maker's marks under all that tarnish - maybe near the area I pointed the arrow?

Is the engraved 'Stavanger' the reason you're sure the maker was from there? If so, not really a valid assumption...

Re: Meriden Brittania Candle 416

By style, your classical Tuscan column candlesticks, with their simple engraved laurel wreaths, most likely date to the 1910s-20s. Meriden Britannia made some sterling flatware patterns in the 1880s, but their holloware is noted as starting with the mid 1890s acquisition of Wilcox & Evertsen. I'...

Re: I am not sure if the is American made or not.

Trev is correct, it's a Tammen mark - as with the majority of silver trademarks, they vary in execution, the comparison below, showing a few of their marks, is one I put together years ago.

Re: Maker & year Sheffield Plate 864 cream jug?

Hi ~ welcome to the forums. Unless you find pieces in the same pattern with a manufacturer's trademark, or can find it in a reference, determining the maker is unlikely. By style, it would date from the late 19th century into the first couple of decades of the 20th - most likely toward the end of th...
