Sheffield (?) Pseudos..Crown & More

On 13" dressing spoon in plain bead pattern with defined drop. Seems we have seen this set before, but nearly impossible to describe it for searching. Gothic "A" off to left. Defined gothic "S" implying Sheffield (if not maker). Crown appears in two different marks...perhaps...

H pellet F & S NS = Filley???

It's on unplated nickel silver spoon. Rainwater noted a Harvey Filley & Sons in Philadelphia but showed no marks or further information. Could he have been working in nickel silver base wares? And is that Filley the same one working with Mead and/or Caldwell? https://i.postimg.cc/WzgdyXMP/image....

Re: DUTCH SILVER GILT SNUFF BOX

I guess I'll be the foolish sucker who raises the ugly question...Is there any reason to suspect this is a re-casting from an original and how can we be certain it's not?

Trip Konig oder Chuck Koenig?

This tomater slice from Gorham seems a good sample to raise the ugly question of tell-tales. Kings (Three) III and King Charles appear extremely similar. A catalog for 1909 shows added acanthus-like work around some of the Chuck wares including the slice. That's all missing on this one. Also notable...

At 4 1/2" W x 2" D, there was no child's play involved in the amount of gruel these porringers could contain. Since the stamping of code numbers was rather cheesy here, I had to fly the mail plane over that steamboat full of gone relics (Worthpoint) to find another partial with the left si...

Fred Harvey by Gorham No. 06779

A very complicated set of codes and symbols here. The presumed date symbol appears closest to the anvil code for 1921, but it is somewhat awkward looking to be certain. I don't see any definite suggestion of re-plating work, but at the top is a rectangle confined within a diamond, all over 12-22. Be...

Re: "O.C. A1 X" (Commercial) Threaded Pattern

The closest I could find in the Oneida family would be an evolution of Wm. A. Rogers design beginning with Revere (1905), simplified with Scotia (1915), and then placed onto a new body having wide shoulders and blunted end sometime after the mid-1920's (more likely once that firm was absorbed as a s...
