Unknown Marks

Postby agsearcher » Fri Jul 07, 2017 12:26 am

Hello. I'm not sure if these marks are possibly Canadian or Chinese Export.
Fiddle pattern, 8 5/8 inches, 73 grams. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

Neither. They are pseudo marks attributed to the NY wholesale manufacturers Philo Gilbert, Daniel Cunningham, and F. W. Cooper working in various combinations c 1835-1850. The marks are found in conjunction with the counter marks on scores of retailers throughout New York and occasionally as far south as Alabama.
