Re: Assist ID mark initial S in spade shape cartouche

Hi,
Cannot identify it with certainty, but it is similar to the mark illustrated in Rainwater for the Sinclair Mfg. Co. of Chartley, MA., in business ca. 1950. The measure would match nicely to the time period.

Re: butter knife mystery mark?

Hello,
A cutler is a steel worker specialized in in the grinding of blades and the mark you've shown us is a cutler's mark. If you illustrate the marks on the handle, we may be able to identify the origins of the piece.
