Reposse' sugar and creamer... who made them?

Here's the creamer:

I'll guess the retailer/purveyor is the J.S. Mc Donald mark... so what's with the "hand"? They are nicely made.

thoughts welcome,

I suppose I should add that the reason I put this under American silver, is that it's marked "sterling" (obviously the English language), and the lack of any British hallmarks.

Additionally, is there a way to edit one's post? if you've told me this before I'm sorry to say I've forgotten the answer. If there's a way, please tell me.

regards, mitch

Hi Mitch,

Your hunch was correct and you posted your question in the right category. Your pieces were made by A.G Schultz & Co of Baltimore.

see: http://www.925-1000.com/americansilver_S2.html

As far as being able to update a post, I don't think its possible but wait for an administrator to confirm.

Cheers,
Steve

The retailer was J. Stuart MacDonald, Baltimore, MD (1900-1921) or earlier (1870 - 1921).
(Or vice versa, both silversmiths being in the same place at the same time (who made it and who sold it?)

And the pattern is a variant of Baltimore Rose, so popular with Baltimoran silversmiths.

Hi Mitch,

No, posts cannot be edited, it's for a good reason. It used to be possible, but posters would sometimes alter their original type and this would be unknown to those that have already responded or read the OP, thus leading to much confusion. If you need to correct sometime that you have already stated, then it is much clearer to all if you do it in a follow-up post.

Got it; on the edit thing dognose.... thanks for the clarification!

So thanks to all who have responded! That's great news to know exactly who sold it and their address and date of business!

Regards
Mitch
