American? Sterling Bread Plate

Postby johnwilberswetnam » Mon Oct 30, 2017 2:44 pm

I cannot identify the maker's mark that is on this plate. It is a 6 1/2" diameter plate marked STERLING and 925/1000 plus another mark (a maker's mark I assume).

I would like to post a picture of the mark to ask for help but cannot find how to do that.

Thanks,
John

Hi John,

Welcome to the Forum.

The below should help you:

http://www.tinypic.com is recommended. Embedded images get a far greater response than just posting links.

Hi again,
I have followed the directions several times for posting pictures, but mine will not post. The tiny pict thing will not take a jpeg (that's what I tried to put into it and it did not take it and gave a long list of every sort of image I ever heard of with the notice that it would not take any of those). I do not know what to do next. I have the two images in my iPhoto file and as a jpeg document as well but neither will post no matter how small I make them.

John

Hi,
I have tried several more times and cannot get any form of picture to post and I have made them the exact size recommended. Is there any other way to post a picture that might work since tiny picts will not take a jpg or any sort of iPhoto that was taken with my digital camera?

Thanks,
John

Hi ~ welcome to the forums.

It's not shown on the page linked, but this is another mark used by Gebelein:

Hello and thank you. Do you know where I can find a picture of this Gebelein mark? I've also been told it may be for AE GOODHUE of Quincy, MA., but I can't find any pictures of any marks for that maker.

Thank you,
John

The Goodhue mark is similar, but this one is Gebelein - both marks are found in Rainwater & Felgar's 'Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers, Revised Fourth Edition' (1998), pages 120 and 126.
