Sterling Shoe Clips - Sheffield but Odd Date Code

Postby natNYC » Sun Dec 04, 2016 4:43 pm

I looked on the date key list here, but didn't see one that matches the mark.
I can't imagine it is very old, as it's also marked sterling.
though maybe the sterling mark was added later?

also, i assume these were sweater or (permanent) dress clips, unless you think they might be something different?

Hi,

Not Sheffield, but Attleboro, Massachusetts. They were made by the Thomae Company.

Trev,

That is it! thank you. I did think it was odd that it looked like an early place and had hallmarks and sterling on it.

thanks!
