I can't identify this mark

This "-W-" mark is on the bottom of a pair of glass lined salt dips. Above the letter, the piece is stamped sterling. I looked in the Dorothy Rainwater book, which I have always found to be a good resource, but nothing has matched the mark. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thank you https:...

I can't identify this mark

I am having a bit of trouble finding any reference to this mark. I have tested these pieces and they are silver, I believe .800. Besides the letter marks, there is also what I believe is the silversmith's mark. They differ from the tablespoon to the teaspoon to the dinner fork. If anyone can give so...

Re: Can't Identify The Maker's Mark

Thank you so much for your input concerning this serving spoon. I looked up Robert Wilson. He was a silversmith in New York from 1803 until 1810 and then moved to Philidelphia and was active until 1825. When you look at the timeline you have to stop and wonder since his early life was taking place r...

Missing Date Mark

The question that I have concerns a serving spoon. It was made in New Castle by John Langlands and John Robertson who were registered in business from 1778 until 1795. My problem is that there is no date mark. I have never seen a piece of English sterling without a date mark. Is there a reasonable e...
