Re: GWC on Coin Silver Butter Knife

This is from a list of Maine Jewelers - don't know if it is any match: Hartford, G. W. C.: JLY & W, Sanford, 1882 That's a very interesting list. GWC Hartford was a retailer of jewelry & watches but I can't find any retailer marks for them. I would think that they would use their last name ...

GWC on Coin Silver Butter Knife

I have a butter knife that I'm certain is coin silver but not sure of the marks on it. It's marked "G.W.C." and has what looks to be a journeyman's mark to the left. Is anyone familiar with GWC? I'm not sure if it is a maker or retailer but am having trouble finding any info. https://lh3.g...

Gold Thimble

Hello, I purchased a thimble collection with some vintage and antique Sterling thimbles. I initially thought this one was a copper or bronze until I looked closer. I've never had English gold, but I'm not sure if this is a gold, gold plated over Sterling or ??? It has a crown with 18 which would mak...

Sterling "AG" Mark

Hello, I have a compote that is marked "Sterling A.G.". I'm not having any luck finding any makers with those initials and I'm wondering if the A.G. just stands for silver? I've found a couple other examples online that show the same mark but nothing that references the maker. Any info is ...

Gorham Pattern Help

Hello, I've got a cake server with a Sterling handle but can't ID the pattern. Not sure if I am just overlooking the correct one but I'm not seeing it.

Re: Manus Aase Flat Rose w/"10" Mark

Flat Rose is the name of the pattern that I've seen used. If it were Sterling (or .830 used commonly with MA) I would expect a 5" 2 prong fork to be around 15 to 20 grams, give or take, so I'd think that 10 grams on one silverplate fork unlikely.

Keer & Kingsland Spoon?

Has anybody ever seen any flatware made by Keer & Kingsland before? I have a spoon that is an exact match for their mark, but they were jewelers and I have never seen any flatware attributed to them. They were based out of Attleboro, MA from 1893 to 1904. I haven't been able to locate any other ...

Spanish Silver Spoon?

I have a spoon that I'm pretty sure is Spanish, but I have no idea on the maker's mark. The bowl of the spoon has the five pointed star for .915 and another mark that looks like a 3 over GR. I'm not sure if the GR is a town mark for Granada or a maker's mark. I've been trying to find info on Spanish...

I have a butter knife with a MOP handle and the bolster is marked "England". The blade has a star along with what looks like a gothic R&B marking. Seems like it should be an easy one to ID but I am having a bit of trouble. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/EEYXx3Bv_QlCf5__L3-G2S9Ykxu5h...

Re: Unknown Mark On Coin Silver Shell Spoon

This is a mark that seems to appear on a lot of pieces with retailers in the area around Detroit and as far East as Erie. Still looking into identifying it.


That would make sense with this one. This piece was purchased at an estate sale in a suburb just outside Detroit.
