Re: Really American? Or British colonial? Or ...?

No photos left, but does the description of the psuedos sound familiar (Kings on hourglass, Head mark, Right Facing Lion, and Letter mark). Was thought to be New York. Here: https://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=43662&p=124985&hilit=right+facing+lion#p124985 Are there any e...

V.H.L.C. Jalisco Guadalajara Eagle Error?

Three photos of belt buckle by this unidentified Mexico maker who has been associated with an Eagle 50 mark. I'll try to get a close-up of the eagle louped kater, but from what I see by twisting this may actually be an Eagle 51. Less detailed than a typical type 1 Eagle, but slightly more than a typ...

Re: Please help identify hallmark

While it does look like a remnant of a P is next to ACA, projecting the full size of this half mark would mean ALPACA would not be properly centered around the base...it would be offset to the right a bit. Had it fit properly, then the top word might have been Blanca...both Metal Blanco & Metal ...

Re: Strange Teapot - Anyone Know Where From?

Until a member who reads Arabic sees this, it will be a long road to determine what it all means...silver content, country, etc. The chance of locating actual makers is pretty difficult, and even worse for silverplated wares. I would suggest using the search function looking at Arabic, Farsi, Persia...

Re: Strange Teapot - Anyone Know Where From?

Well, they're not Wilkinson blades but rather the crossed swords of the Saudi Kingdom, but lacking the palm tree. At least you'll know what port to embark at in your quest.

Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

And now, thanks to the Chicagology site, a small entwined "CA" monogram with no ampersand has been spotted contained within the center of a Chicago & Alton logo (requires some scrolling to get there: https://chicagology.com/goldenage/goldenage075/ In addition, a hotel reportedly existe...

Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

I don't think the hammer is a "T" for top...the mark is a bit too irregular. On the other hand, a hammer might represent work completed at the Wilcox plant in Meriden? Has the symbol surfaced before?

Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

And just to compare, here is an early century commercial china plate supplied through Portland and thought to be an older version of the Arlington's horned "A". The teapot just doesn't have that Texas Longhorn style. More like ZsuZsu's angel wings. https://i.postimg.cc/vmvWJ9N4/image.jpg h...

Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

Not to get too far ahead on a user conclusion, but the letters (without an ampersand here) are a very close match to buttons (Worthpoint record) from the Chicago & Alton Railroad made by Scovill. The horned "A" was also emplyed by the exclusive Arlington Club of Portland Oregon, but th...

Re: Help with Id coin silver Boston Mt Washington House

Perhaps clear up this...Does it read Mount (MT.) Washington House or My Washington House...a big difference as Longfellow's House in Boston is where Washington once lived and Mount Washington could refer to some other structures. And the dating could bear on the maker or retailer marks....for instan...

Re: Commercial Teapot I.S.Co. w/ Odd Marks

In the photos, the as yet unknown user is a worn down "AC" or "CA" intertwined. The code "U.F. 40" might be related, but we can't really tell. The production date is 1921...21 boxed. We should expect the number "9" to be matched to a number in the lid, but ins...

Re: C Wilcox Hallmark - dating a spoon

Think nothing of it. Maybe a good point in time for display box with history enclosed so it never gets lost in time. So few of the monograms that surface can be linked to a known person.
