E.J.BUXTON & CO.

Hello, I bought this cofeepot but i find very little about the maker. Does anyone knows more about E.J. Buxton & co.? I was told that this pot was made around 1852 and 1899. Is this Tudor style, and what are the 2 circles? Thanks for your time ! Alain http://aycu37.webshots.com/image/41156/20050...

Hallo Mike,
I have a pot very similar to yours,you can have a look if you go to:
Silverplate - Trademarks - Worldwide.
My post subjet was "Hammond, Creek & Co."
You will see that the lit is almost identical to yours, and the general look of the pot too.
Greetings, Alain

Frensh or English?

Hello,
Can somebody tell me if this salt & pepper is Frensh or English style?
It dates from around 1900.
It is silverplated, but there are no marks.
Thanks for your time,

Hi Pat,
Thanks for all that info!
I tried cold and hot vinaigre to clean it, but it doesn't seem to do the job.
I have another, perhaps to drastic way , and that is to use Amonia .
For now i leave it as it is, there might be somebody who have a better idee.
Greetings,
Alain
