Silver fork marked AT AT?

Postby mk209 » Wed Sep 17, 2014 3:29 pm

Picked up this heavy silver fork for next to nothing it tests as sterling silver but just has the marks 'AT' 'AT'. Ant help to identify it would be great. I'm guessing Colonial?

Ok this mark again has turned up on a set of dessert spoons, any ideas yet?

Hoping there is a clue in the style of spoons,

Hi Matt,

I'll move the topic to the Other Countries section of the forum to see if we have any luck there.

Hello, just noticed this when looking for something else. What struck me about the close up maker's marks is that could there be evidence for over-punching of the "A" letter? A relative changing the mark first name letter or a similar surnamed retailer?

There’s no over punching here just a roughly made punch and evidence of wear over years of use. The top fiddle has been replaced on one of the spoons and punched again but shows a much worn punch.

I’m sure these are colonial as the repairs show that these had a well-used life and yet they were repaired with whatever material was around later for the repaired fiddle section.
