Is this maker?

Postby caltbaum » Fri Apr 13, 2018 2:45 pm

Hello, my first time posting, so I would like to introduce myself. I am a dealer and collector. I recently bought a 12 piece set that is very nice looking. the pieces are marked Davidson Fyson & McCune. I believe the hallmark is a London one due to the W and Lion.

Thank you Chris

Opened the link to both images.What hallmark did you see ? Beside maker`s name there is no lion.

I think the name goes with a Butte, Montana retail jewelry company that also had a store in Salt Lake City, Utah. Is there a marking on it the shows the silver finess or is plated?

Hello Chris,

I'm only able to view one image, the others are showing a Photobucket error message. The image I can see shows the letter W in a circle with a left facing lion. This is the mark of the Whiting Manufacturing Company of New York.

Please see:

As I can only see a small section of the pattern, I cannot be 100%certain. but think the cutlery is the 1891 design called Louis XV. Please see here:

Unfortunately I'm unable to comment on the retailer, Davidson Fyson & McCune as they are unknown to me.

Cheers,
Steve

The only thing I can suggest is googling Davidson Leyson & McCune.
