Re: Reed & Barton Cocktail Pitcher: date?

The link seems to be down, but R&B used only picto-symbols to represent years, only beginning in 1928. The "18" is where you would normally see an item/inventory/stock/catalog/pattern number on the wares.

Re: Reed & Barton Cocktail Pitcher: date?

Interesting...Joe Yule played the Jiggs role in movies. The Jiggs comic strip character dates back to c.1912, but the pitcher could be much later...once designed, they could produce something as long as the tooling held out. R&B maintained quality work all along.

Knife Andersen Norway 1888-1914 Range

Not finding anything useful on much-older, unhyphenated David Anderson flatwares on the net. We have the 1888-1925 hammer mark, limited by a 1914 inscribed dating on the handle reverse. Left of maker mark is a "15" which should correspond to a gram measure for silverplating process. But wa...

Re: Crescent brooch - ? missing agate - ??.H.L - STG SIL

A footnote from Victorian Jewelry by Margaret Flower (1951): Scotch pebbles were usually pieces of agate, quarried near Perth. They were frequently cut and mounted at Oberstein in Germany.

Re: Reed & Barton Cocktail Pitcher: date?

"X" marks turn up occasionally on marked commercial wares (hotel/restaurant) and unmarked items, usually weighty, that may have extra plating for heavy duty useage. Here is an example under Morrison Hotel by Victor Silver Company used by the hotel division of International Silver....R&...

MORRISON HOTEL Chicago Illinois Leveled a few years (c.1965) before the famous photo of seminal rock band The Doors was taken in front of a Los Angeles fleabag to grace the cover and give name to their album, this venue had long served as an architectural landmark for Chicago holding height records....

Re: Teaspoons

Bottger [rectangular cartouche] = the mark of "a master of the Hamburg guild" -> so, Yes a silversmith is expected for this name. But he did not do the actual work, only accepted it from the concessionaire...like subcontracting to a small shop.
