Unknown dragon? hallmark

Hello all! I am having the darnedest time sifting through the cobwebs in my mind to recall this hallmark. It looks so familiar to me but I can't find a match. Can anyone help? It is on the back of an over cup tea strainer. Thanks! https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/...

Re: Tiffany Moore Sterling "Old Silver" hallmark?

Thank you all for your feedback. If anyone has any ideas on how I might research this vice silver idea, or any other thoughts or speculation on the Old Silver, I will continue watching. And THANKS! One last question if you don't mind. The belly of the creamer has fingerprint sized impressions and in...

Tiffany Moore Sterling "Old Silver" hallmark?

Hi there! I bought this old Tiffany creamer pitcher for my husband because he liked the face on it. I'd like to make a record of what I can find out about it as I like to do with all the items we collect. The stories behind them is the best part! : ) My first question is about the "Old Silver&q...

Unknown CW mark on unknown silver content case

Hi there, I am hoping someone can help me with any information about this case I had bought. I actually bought it to carry my vitamins in my purse - isn't that an ironic repurpose of a cigarette case? : ) Anyway the Wisteria decor I know is often Japanese, but I don't see any Japanese hallmarks. I o...

Re: Shiebler Fakes?

Thanks everybody... okay wow. I knew that it was a long and expensive process but I had no idea it entailed all that. So do you think I am safe to assume that the pieces I see with the missing "I" in Sterling are still actually Shiebler pieces then? I had read on a Tiffany fakes site that ...

Shiebler Fakes?

Hi there! I have been gradually growing my Shiebler flatware collection over the last few years and have come across some pieces of Flora where the Sterling stamp reads "Sterlng" (the letter I seems to be missing on the strike.) On some of them, the S inside the wings is even backwards, so...

Re: Gorham spoon pattern date and name? Sweet Pea?

You folks are awesome, thank you so much for taking the time to teach me all this and you are right, I can definitely see the resemblance to the Violet pattern. How interesting!

Durgin marks by date?

I had a question about the Durgin marks found on this site: http://www.925-1000.com/americansilver_D2.html Does anyone know the dates of the various types? I know the bird in the wreath is late 1800s, and the script D I read an estimate from 1888 to the 1930s, but the one with the clover or flower s...

Thank you so much! Can you tell me the name of that book so I can try to find one for future reference? Does it have other makers or just International? Appreciate you sharing!

Dear Aguest, You are unbelievably kind to take such time to reply so thoroughly - THANK you! I'm happy to hear you think it's a good quality. It has a nice weight to it for its size and has definitely become one of my favorites in my collection (I love spoons). Are there any clues I should look for ...

Re: HE hallmark for same citrus spoon as a Gorham?

Thank you so much Traintime! Do you have any ideas why an identical spoon would have the HE hallmark and Gorhams as well? As I mentioned mine does not, but wondered what the relationship was and whose design it is.
Thanks so much for your time!

Gorham spoon pattern date and name? Sweet Pea?

And my other question about a spoon from my personal collection - Can anyone help me identify the name of this Gorham pattern? It appears to be a Sweet Pea vine? but I could not find it on the flatware patterns list. Perhaps it is from one of their "series" like the numbered series but I c...
